It's been almost a week of water on/water off/water on/water off/water on/water off/water on/water off/.
We got to the point that the kitchen faucet was always pulled up so that we could hear when the water was suddenly running through the pipes. Then the mad dash to use the bathroom, or whatever else would suddenly commence. I took the fastest shower of my life today! ha ha! So it's mostly a NO WATER zone over here, except for those short moments when the water magically flows and then disappears again.
But even when the water is flowing, we have been hesitant to use it. It stinks really bad of pipe glue and other random chemicals. I WON'T wash the dishes with that and you better believe I ain't brushing my teeth with it!!!!
I'm trying to joke about it since this is a public blog, but the situation really isn't that funny. I got so frustrated that I started to cry this afternoon. You can only be so patient for so long. The utility company has a bunch of locals busting up concrete, sawing pipes, reglue-ing pipes, pouring more concrete, and they just play with the water supply ALL. DAY. LONG.
Then they come back the next day and do the same stuff all over again. And when they aren't doing that, they are loitering for hours on end, and harass me as I walk by, demanding that I share my food with them, or hollering at me for who knows why...........I just quickly walk past and try to ignore them. It's actually kind of scary.
This is insanity! The insanity MUST END!
Well, what does one do when they are about to lose it? They put themselves in time out! Or in this case, they go for a walk. Robert and I walked over to the edge of the Mullet cliffs. We just happened to spy an iguana, so Robert yanked a bunch of flowers off nearby trees and fed them to the little creature.Unfortunately for me, I didn't have my camera. Unfortunately for him, he tried to pet the iguana, and then got the crap bitten out of his finger! ha ha! He should have known. I was so mad for not bringing my camera, though. Robert hiked down the edge and washed off his finger in the salty ocean. But not until he had fed that silly iguana at least a dozen more flowers. Robert is always a sucker for animals and kids.
Eventually, we went back home to grab the camera, but, by then, Senor Iguana was long gone. So, I tried to make life interesting and take pictures of the scenery instead.
(I spied another iguana, but he was on a lower ledge and completely unreachable for anyone other than Iron Man.............or Superman.)
Today was overcast. It matched my mood. I took a lot of pictures of weird crap. Dead trees, grass being blown in the wind, barren branches; it almost reminded me of Autumn.......almost.
