Running water

We had a pipe break under our house and Dan, my husband can't fix it until the weekend because of work, so we are living like the pioneers at the moment lol.

Gives me an excuse to go to the hair dresser though for a nice wash and cut lol.

Our water pump went out about a year ago.  Tom kept saying he could put in a new one and have it done before I got home from a trip with my daughter.

Well I was only gone for part of a day.

He did get it done but it didn't work.  We went through this for several days.  I had to call someone to fix this for us.  We were out of water for 4 days.

Luckily I could go into my daughter's for water & show.

It's funny how we take these things for granted.  I hope I never have to go without water again!!!!!

We are managing ok. I heated water on the stove just like they would on TR for washing the dishes etc.

Hoping he and my son can get the problem solved on Saturday when they are off work. Lord knows he won't hire anybody to fix it lol...
