No...NOT the W-a-t-e-r!
What a dreary day! And I awoke to feeling the most cozy, perfect and warm feeling that one could feel. That extra special feeling you get when sleeping in bed while all the bed conditions are j-u-s-t right...where the sun, the moon and the stars are all lining up and you kind of feel like Baby Bear finding the perfect bed in Goldilocks and the Three Bears. :) I did need to get up at that point, but I turned on my side...nestled in all cozy and dreamy like for what would have been the most blissful sleep. A-h-h...the perfect sleep. M-m-m-m-m-m or should I say z-z-z-z-z?
And then it happened. We sleep with a box fan. (That's another story) Like a mother hears her baby cry ...I heard the fan die down...like the electric was going to go off. My first thought was...did I pay the electric bill? Yes that is the one current bill. Back to sleep but not really. Seconds later...with my eyes opening fast and wide...that light bulb moment (pun intended) I think to myself, "No...NOT the W-a-t-e-r! That was a power surge!" I then shot out of bed like a propelled rocket, dashed into the kitchen and filled my big bottle I got from uro doc, the tea kettle, and two large pots of water. There was a large clap of thunder (c,mon ...it's winter...where is the snow?) and so we were having a thunder storm. Poor son in the shower. I am sure I greatly reduced the water pressure for him while filling everything.
I can not stand to be without water if the electric goes off. Our well pump won't work...hence no water for drinking, and no toilet or whatever.
I love my water!
Now I am off to the races! :)
