They say that there’s nothing that makes one appreciate modern conveniences like not having them anymore, and never was that any more true than during those five days we were without running water.

Yesterday we awakened to a burst pipe, adding insult to injury. Thank God Will knew what to do, and $35 worth of plumbing supplies later, we were back in business. Hurray!!

Suddenly, water came rushing out of faucets, and we could do dishes! And take showers! And best of all, flush the toilets!

You laugh, but believe me, when the only running water you’ve had is running to the neighbors with 5-gallon buckets, you learn real quick not to take it for granted.

Now, if I could just figure out why my computer doesn’t want to connect to the Internet anymore, life would really be back to normal. Oh well, one thing at a time…..except I REALLY hate typing blog posts on my iPhone. Know what I mean?

It's not easy being bipolar in a unipolar world; let's figure it out together.
