When Living in the Country Sucks
In the past 24 hours, a leak has ruined half our newly laid hardwood floors (which we now get to rip up and redo), and a burst pipe has put one of our wells on life support and it may not recover this season. The fact that we can't just flip a switch and city water comes out of the tap makes this one of those times that living in the middle of nowhere is more than frustrating. The DIY mentality can be highly overrated, especially when we got about 5-6 hours of sleep last night because we had to keep restarting the well pump so our guest house renter would have water. (BIG sigh) We'll see what the next 24 hours has in store for us.
