Since we're currently undergoing a plumbing issue we have been without hot water since Sunday night.  It's not really a big deal.  I use a tea-pot on the stove to heat up water to wash dishes.  It works well, although we all agreed that perhaps paper products for the next few days is a good idea.  Other than that, we're doing ok... until it comes time to take a shower. It's hot outside.  We're looking at temperatures being over 100 for the next 7 days.  With Leroy starting football practice... this is the time of year when we usually shower twice a day.  Now, I'm tough, but I can't take a cold shower.  It's painful.

Thankfully, we have the Almeida's close by and we can drive over and take a shower when necessary.  It's a bit of a hassle, but things could be worse.  If we weren't able to bathe regularly, things would get ugly real quick.

Trust me when I tell you that this is grace for everyone we know and love.
