YOU GUYS.
YOU GUYS.
YOU GUYS.
WATER.
WE GOT WATER.
WATER’S BACK.
WATER.
I LOVE WATER.

Yesterday morning, this miracle occurred. Coincidentally, yesterday was Day 50 since Maria. And on this day, let it be noted, God above in great beneficence and the Autoridad de Acueductos saw fit to open the floodgates and send in the water. I think it’s a combination of all your WATER ENERGY, on our behalf, going up in wave after wave until it was too much to resist, and – thanks and praise! – the water came to us.

So: thanks, friends!

I mopped the floors, washed the dishes, filled up all our empty gallons, cleaned ALL THE THINGS, and took three showers.
THREE GLORIOUS COLD AMAZING SHOWERS.

The kids smell a lot better, too. They were getting a little ripe.

(Oh my goodness, just kidding, we washed them with buckets of water and copious amounts of soap on the regular, but showers make it a lot easier.)

The water’s still low-pressure, but it’s enough for the downstairs bathroom and the kitchen to be water-functional. Hopefully it will stay with us, but I’ve heard many stories of water on for a few days, then off, then on a few days later. We will enjoy it while it is here, and keep all our gallons and buckets filled in case.

Plans for the weekend:
Wash dishes
Wash my hands a thousand times
Wash all the things
Mop all the floors
Shower
Shower the kids
Shower again
Filter the water
Drink the water
Hand wash some laundry
Rinse some buckets
Fill the buckets with water
Shower again, just for the heck of it
Wash something else

And maybe, after that, I”ll write some words, read some books, and take a nap. Go to the beach. Then come home and take a shower.

Have a great weekend, friends. Life is good, water is a blessing. Whatever you’re facing today, the universe is on your side. Have fun!
