When It Rains, It Pours
Wednesday, July 6, 2016
Its been quite a few weeks for us lately.
Just a few weeks ago, our air conditioner went out without warning. We had to wait a day for the air condition man to come. We did fine. The house stayed cool most of the day and after our nightly showers, we were cooled down enough to go to bed and slept comfortably with only ceiling fans.
This past weekend, after our afternoon walk, my husband heard something coming from the storage room where the hot water tank is kept. A hose had ruptured. We caught it before it totally flooded but we still had a water issue and the floor was soaked. Needless to say, we didn't have any hot water and barely had any water pressure.
Though it sent Nicks stress level to the roof, I stayed calm. I'm pretty good at being resourceful. Besides, worrying make things worst. We had to turn the water off at the road to keep anymore water problems from happening overnight until we could get to the hardware store in the morning.
I simply filled up some water jugs for drinking and boiled some hot water for baths. We took turns pouring warm water over each other while lathering up and then a quick rinse. I think that's the quickest wash I ever did. I didn't get to spend an extra 20 minutes under the shower planning out my life. Ha.
The next morning, I skipped church while Nick ran to the hardware store. Fortunately he had it fixed in about thirty minutes. The rest of the day was ours. We enjoyed time together and my daughter came to visit so we could all go out to dinner.
Monday was Independence day so I had the day off. I did some weed pulling, house cleaning and laundry before heading out to some festivities uptown. Low and behold if the dog gone washing machine didn't started yelling. "I'm giving up!" Yep. Next, its a new washer. I'll add that to the list right above the new mattress set we were saving for.
Oh wait, I think the fridge is making a noise.
