You've Got to Be Kidding...Right?

Some times you've just got to laugh...

Last night we set up the bouncy seat in our room for Nate to sleep in. He still couldn't breathe well that way, so I sat up with him in my chair in the living room. I made a short trip back to bed, trying both laying him down in his Moses basket and sitting him in the bouncy seat again. Neither way worked. I don't think I slept more than a 45 minute stretch all night.

The girls both woke up with the cold. Then while the girls were up, the little boy who couldn't sleep laying down, remember that? He laid down and took a nap.

I called and asked Justin to come home a little early so I could get a nap. I went up to bed, where I could hear the neighbor kids arguing. A couple of minutes later I heard heavy equipment coming down the street. The water main that was repaired last winter and this summer, evidently needs more work. So while I try to sleep they dig up our front yard.

After dinner a workman came to the door and asked if we had water. The water in the sink was running, so I answered yes and he began to walk off. So I asked, "Will we have water?" He told me they weren't turning it off right now. I pursued it further telling him we have three very small children and water is a necessity. Finally he admitted it would likely be off later. He did say that they would get us water if it became necessary. We filled a pitcher and put a spare jug (from this summer's water being off) in the fridge.

It is frustrating that they failed to complete the work correctly the two previous times they attempted this. It's hard to have three sick children in the house (please, oh please let this be the cause of some of Kate's behavior). But sometimes you just have to laugh. At least it's not Old Faithful in the bathroom again!

If you still have water, after the girls baths, I would put some water in the tub so you'll have water to flush if you need it.
Wish we could help you out.
Love you.
