What I Love Wednesday ... so simple, so basic, so VITAL

We have had a little problem in our home lately ...

But I can't really get rid of the culprit, because, well ... we need it, we can't live without it!

I have, however, put the culprit in a temporary "time-out" ... and honestly, I am the miserable one.

Seriously, what's a girl/mom/wife/person to do without:

so please come back and know that you are loved!

Oh how we take such simple things for granted huh? We are so blessed to be able to have the option of taking it for granted in the first place. I hope you get your water back soon. In the meantime you may have to get creative and take some of your friends up on their offers to help. Makes you realize how quickly things can turn without one little commodity huh?
