Folding Our Tents

KimmyK and FADKOG have the right idea - we're getting out of dodge! Well, we're leaving the house for a bit anyway - just heading across town till the plumbing resolves itself. Our friends have a summer cottage and they've offered it to us till this shit storm blows over, so we're packing up the kitties and the pup and heading over there.

Last night we thought we could get through it, paper plates aren't so bad right? After one day of those paper plates (and everything else) we weren't feeling so positive about the possibility of making it through the week.

Then came the last straw... I expect that we are like most working couples, and we do laundry on the weekend, and of course it's hard to have laundry day without the washer and dryer. Happily, our friends were kind enough to offer the use of their washer and dryer (and shower) today, so we started driving the laundry down the street. Half way through the laundry (a load in the washer, a load in the dryer, a load in the basket in the car and a load left to go) we decided that there is just no way we could make it till mid- to late week.

To get back to the whole list theme thing, I thought I would close with a list of things I miss about not having indoor plumbing:
1. showers
2. flushing the toilet
3. the dishwasher
4. the washing machine
5. shaving - a short shower means I'm starting to look like a yeti!

I'm sure there are more, but those are the top ones!

i'd be okay with the yeti thing going on, i can't do without a potty. i mean i already get anxiety if i gotta go...ya know?

and showering is a must.

laundry on the weekends are my hot dates...i'dda done the same thing as you---summer beach house here i come.

The toilet thing would have topped my list. I mean, I like the shower thing, and I could probably go a day or two and think it OK not to shave my legs, but seriously, no toilet? No thank you!

Think of this as a vacation. A vacation with all the work of actually being at home with plumbing, but a vacation nonetheless!
