On Wednesday afternoon Anouk and I ran out of water. Up here, water is delivered to everyone's house every couple of days via water truck. Each house has a big tank, connected to all the taps, that the truck pumps water into, and it's usually more than enough to last two or three days...well, Anouk happened to do umpteen loads of laundry last weekend, and we're thinking that's why we ran out. Today is Friday. In theory the water truck is supposed to come to our house today. In theory. We do have a large plastic jug of filtered water that we use for drinking and cooking. But this, too, is starting to dwindle. All I can say is, thank goodness for awesome friends and their showers! But the huge pile of dishes in our kitchen sink is starting to unnerve me...please cross your fingers and send some prayers to the water gods who, in our case, are the water truck drivers!!
