Small Town, Big Problem

the water came on a couple of hours later...after we had a not-so-yummy meal of leftovers. Just urning on the faucet and seeing nothing almost pushed me over the edge!!

I turned on the faucet in the kitchen and nothing came out. We have no water. They're building a house next door to us and I thought that they did something to interrupt our water service. I called City Hall (because this town is so small that they do not have a "Water Department". A water main broke and the entire city is without water.

Suddenly, I realize that our new town, my hometown, is so much smaller than our old town.

Once again, I'm sad. It's like the icing on the cake. This has not been a very good day and this little problem just tops it off.

And I must get creative and come up with something exciting for dinner that doesn't require water or excessive handwashing.

We may have to drive the two miles to my parents' house to take baths tonight. Doesn't that sound like fun!?

The city website doesn't even have anything about the water main break on it. I hope that it's fixed by morning.

You would think they would have a better way to get the message out instead of having all 3,000 people calling.

BTW, the other day in one of your posts, you mentioned going to Chick fil A after picking the Muffin up from preschool - does your small town have a Chick fil A now? It's been forever since I've even been through there!
