I usually will only take a shower every other day. The reasons are threefold:
One, more frequent showers in our hard water turns my skin to ash
Two, during the looooong cold winters it's too dang cold to shower every day. I've had my hair literally freeze!
and Three, I have to get up very early to get in a shower before the rugrats wake up and I am NOT a morning person. At all. In any way.
So yeah. As per my usual, I did not take a shower yesterday and fully expected to get in a quick shower this morning before Ben's checkup.
The best laid plans of mice and men, eh?
Last night I gave the kids a bath and noticed that even though the brand new bathtub had only been used once before, the water was already brownish even before I put the kids in there. Hmmmm. Ah well, no biggie.
Then this morning I wake up and the water pressure is zilch.
Not even enough to refill the toilet tank. Which is NOT good.
So I called our water company and got a line of bullshit, which I didn't realize was bullshit at the time but now I know it was a total crock of bs!
I mean, why would the water have dirt in it LAST NIGHT if the water "company" claims that the construction workers just hit a main this morning? AND why were there construction workers out digging up road that WASN'T BEING WORKED ON??????
Fishy fishy stuff.
Anyway, shady companies are par for the course here. And we're used to water main breaks. After all the last time the county workers actually WERE working on the road they tore up a main too.
But I digress......
I did NOT get my shower today. And so an overly hairsprayed ponytail got me through the day of errands, school, paperwork, grocery shopping...ugh
What a mess.
