Well, you know there is a saying out there …you don’t know what you’ll miss until you don’t have it? Or something like that. Well, on the weekend we lost our water – no water for a family of four!!!
Fun times were not had by all. Well, maybe for my girls. We are on a well, which we had the pump replaced 3 years and 1 day ago, when we lost our water. I had a bit of a freak out as I couldn’t find our warranty on the *new* pump that we invested so much in.. ha ha ha. It was 10:30pm Saturday night and you can’t sleep when shit hits the fan in your house…or when water stops dripping from the taps. I was so upset.
We spent Sunday running (literally) over to our amazing neighbour’s house to use her bathroom and filled up some jugs/bought some water. We figured rather then calling a plumber on the weekend, hello $$$$$, we’d call Monday morning. I’ll keep this short – problem fixed by lunch time today (still awaiting the bill, but it’s all good); a wire in our well had deteriorated along with an electrical box inside the house.
I was never so happy to see water coming from my taps and being able to flush the toilets! Having said that….I had a fantastic run Sunday night!

- Sunday: 7k treadmill run.
Oh this run was so great. Honestly, I didn’t even know if I’d get to shower after but I didn’t care. (Luckily, I did shower at my neighbours though). I jumped on the treadmill after an epic bath time for the girls at our neighbours that included ice cream! Yeah, the girls get spoiled by her 🙂
Sweaty selfie with my blank white board (no upcoming races).
I decided to catch up on a TV show while I ran. This run was just what I needed. I ran at a comfortable pace then kept increasing it over time. I hardly looked at my distance and just ran by how I was feeling.
Honestly, I wanted to keep running (so did my legs) but knew it was getting late and I didn’t want to lose my window of shower opportunity at my neighbours house. It was a great way to end a bit of a shitty weekend. Bonus of the weekend – my husband wasn’t working so we all got to hang out AND, we got to see our niece, Ava. (Oh and of course, my brother and SIL). And since it’s after 9 PM on Monday, I’m just going to go ahead, hit publish and let you enjoy this blog post at your leisure 😉
Ever lose water for a few days? Luxury camping or pain in the butt?
Do you have a neighbour that would let you use their bathroom all day long?
