This week has not been going so great. I mentioned before that I live in Chicago. I’m sure you all know how cold and snow filled Chicago winters can be. Starting last week the snow came down like it was it’s job (I guess it kinda is LOL). Meetings were cancelled, jobs were closed, schools were shut down. I didn’t mind this much. It meant having my parents home from work which was nice. Also one of my friends was stranded at my house from Saturday until Tuesday which was super fun. This is how we spent our days…….
Chain massage anyone?
Everything was good until Monday. We woke up to no hot water. We had record breaking temperatures that day though. I’m talking below zero temperatures so the fact that the pipes were frozen didn’t come as a surprise. We just adjusted. We did what we had to do and boiled water. But when it rains it pours right? Tuesday comes, which also had record breaking below zero temperatures, and we have NO WATER. Really?! So now this means no flushing the toilet, no showers, no water to cook in, no water to wash our hands with, etc. etc. etc. That day I took everyone home and
invaded stayed over Chanell’s house. I was told that a plumber would be coming to our apartment building Wednesday. I figured I would stay the night at Chanell’s and then go home Wednesday once the pipes were fixed. Wednesday comes. My mom tells me not only do we still not have hot water but the main water line in the building has burst so now no one in our apartment building has water. Ultimate stale face. So another night at Chanell’s house. Today is Thursday and we still have no water. It’s so easy to take things like running water and plumbing for granted. This is teaching me to really appreciate the small things. *yelling to no one in particular* Lesson learned now! Can we please get our water back!
