We had an unintentionally exciting weekend. You just can't plan for everything. Although, I do try my very best. We had some good and bad surprises over the past several days.
I woke up Sunday morning and walked out back to see the river covering our street. It sounds so peaceful and relaxing, like a babbling brook. However, relaxation quickly passes when you remember this is pouring out of your yard. And as a result, you have no water pressure. And can't wash your hair, dishes or clothes.
As of this morning, Ty said the city workers had arrived. Two days after the water started spilling out of our yard. I'm nervous about what awaits me at home. Part of my driveway demolished? A gigantic mud hole? No running water in the house?
After such an exciting afternoon, we decided we would spend our Saturday evening at home. We really needed to be home in case any city workers came by so we could show them where our sprinkler lines and supply lines are located. And by we, I mean Ty. We agreed we would rent a movie, order a pizza and stay in.
We thought Arthur looked funny. And then Direct TV tried to charge us $29.99 for the rental. Completely absurd! So, we watched Red Riding Hood instead and more or less hated it. I still remain a devotee of Amanda Seyfried.
As a result of our water problem, we had to skip church Sunday. But that afternoon, once we'd resolved that no one was coming to fix our water problem, we went to Querbes to watch my little brother, Taylor, compete in the City Amateur Golf Championship.
We took a family photo with our champ. I'm still not sure how Taylor managed to play two rounds of golf ... in 100 degree weather ... wearing a black shirt.
