Water, Water Everywhere and not a Drop to Spare...

I forgot about the notice hung on my door saying the water would be shut off today, from 8am to 5pm, while they do some work on the water lines.

I remembered when Mason came into the living room, mouth full of toothpaste and mumbled that his sink wasn't working.

I was annoyed after changing a plethora of diapers(mostly poopy) and needing to wash my hands.
(I settled for a wet wipe and some sanitizer.)

I became very angry when I laid both my babies down for an afternoon nap and went to take a shower.
I contemplated standing in the shower and pretending to make myself feel better.

I became livid when I thought of all the laundry that needs to get done before we leave Friday morning for a week-long trip.

They should NOT be allowed to turn the water off for a whole day in a house with one mama and three small children.

 I am counting down the hours until 5pm.

Really nice post! I think you have a really wonderful perspective.
Reading this made me think of Kathleen who sent us her story about becoming a stepmom. She talks about her initial uncertainty, and then with her husband’s help learning to follow her heart and now absolutely LOVING being a stepmom.
Below is a link to her video. I hope you like it as much as I do. Take care.
