Get over to mycokerewards to get a 12-pack for only 30 points. It may be gone now, not sure. I got one, all they allow. Thanks, kizzy!
The plumbers left the water on last night and I did 6 loads of clothes, drying things I really needed to hang. But, I did hang some today and clothes in the house last night. I did two loads of dishes, unloaded one and still have the last one to unload. I washed my hair at 6:30 after a two-hour nap. They dropped by at 8 am to turn it back off. They said they will do this as long as I need and until I can afford to pay. Nice guys!
Yesterday, with water off I baked in a bag 7 boneless chicken breasts, the free potatoes, and carrots that had frozen and the free onion. I may have said this. So, today I am going to get a cheap loaf of whole wheat bread from bread store, and I will have sandwiches and heat the excess vegetables. With a clean sink, I can manage to at least wash some of my dishes and try to keep up. When I came back from reunion, dishes were in the sink because I was feeling awful before reunion and came home really ill.
Do you know how difficult it is to handle chicken with no water? I used my hand sanitizer lots, just hoping I did not get alcohol on the chicken. I used hose water to rinse off the sanitizer. I think I will fire up the grill if I cook multiple chicken breasts when I have no water. It would be easier and more sanitary.
Oh, another thing I did when I had water for a few brief hours was to refill my water from the bathtub, leaving seven gallons just sitting in the tub. Driving around the block and hauling water from the faucet was beyond me because I could not bend and then pick up a gallon of water. If I had something to hang onto, I could. The cane was not enough. I still buy drinking water. His hose is not for potable water. However, we drank from the hose when we were children. My children did, too. sigh
Bathing is hard, but two cups of water, a washcloth and a sliver of soap works for right now. Getting wet all over is such a luxury. First World problem? If I had to do this for long, I would fix a way to shower of sit in two gallons of water!
At the moment, I don't have heat and it has gone below freezing. Sleeping is easy in the cold, but walking around is not fun in here. A friend was supposed to come help me with the heater, but something happened. Oh well.
Go get your Coke rewards or enter some more codes. This has not been edited at all. Good luck reading it.
Have you ever been without water in your house and for how long? Did you have a place to go and shower? If you use Coke rewards, did you snag a coupon? I know some of you don't.
