No hot water. Not even warm! Our elderly water heater has finally gone and kicked the bucket. It's been slowly giving out on us like a balloon with a slow leak.On Wednesday I managed to squeeze in a quick shower and had about 5-6 minutes of warmish water. Yesterday, nada.
That's right folks, no shower for me yesterday! TMI, anyone? All I'm gonna say is *baby wipes*. I could have gone over to the MIL's apartment, but I didn't feel like dragging 2 kids (with lots bags of kid stuff) up a flight of stairs alone while John drove an hour to buy a 50 gallon water heater. Oh, we have a Home Depot here in town, but it was going to take 3 weeks to get in a 50 gallon'er that we could order. 3 weeks of trekking and schlepping the kids to wash myself... so not worth it. Driving an hour two ways, and me going without a shower for a day- worth it.
I'll get to wash up after John gets home from work, at the MIL's place, and hopefully John's uncle can help him install it tomorrow.
Today, I had to boil water to do the dishes. Yippee! And this morning I set up this for the girls...
Setting up tents and boiling water... Going a day with out a shower... Might as well go camping!
OK, I exaggerate... but still. Here are some more pictures for your enjoyment.
Anna: I love it when you force me to smile mom. Nothing says "fun" like showing too much gum. Are we having "fun" yet?
Emma: I'm holding out for the big finish...
Anna: OK, fine... take your fancy pictures, but I refuse to give you a real smile. No teeth, not even a glimpse of gums.
Emma: Uhhh... I like cake. Cake is good.
Anna: This is the smile I give when my mom says funny words to make me smile. Like poop and snarkle farkle.
Emma: Heh-eh-eh-eh... Dude, you said poop.
What's a farkle?
