Water, color.

Know when the water finally came back on?

10:00 p.m.

That's really, really late. But at least it came back. I heard today that there was some kind of major renovation or something going on in the water supply for this area. When it came back we had exceptionally good pressure, and it never went out at all today, so hopefully that's that.

Not that I didn't fill a bucket this morning and buy a 5-gallon thing of drinking water this afternoon, mind you.

Tomorrow's task is to buy paint for the color-reassignment procedure that is to take place in Robin's room this weekend.

A nine-year-old. A palette of thousands of shades, hundreds of them pink. Wish us strength.

I'm a person whose entire house was pink when I first moved in. (and shamefully one room still is)

I feel your pain! :)

And, um, pink, eh?


Best of luck to you, J. ;)

What's the line from Steel Magnolia's?

good luck.
