CAUTION: Men at Work

... continuing on with the water saga at the Honey House.

So yesterday by about 3:30 p.m. Honey Daddy and the neighbor declared their work finished. They replaced the faulty pipe, and I was excited we would have running water any minute! So they went ahead and turned the water back on.

Psssshhhhhh! Uh-Oh! The replacement pipe was fine, but now the pipe on the city's side of our water meter was leaking... a lot. Soon the hole they had dug filled up with water. So we got to call the city and let them know that they got to replace their pipe after all.

So they sent a crew right out. You would not believe how many different kinds of equipment it takes to dig up the road, dig up more of our lawn, suck up all the water and dirt, and replace a pipe. I will spare you the all the truck photos, but there were a lot more than this:

Needless to say my boys were completely glued to the front window!

Wow! Check out all those trucks!

I had to leave for work while all the excitement was going on. When I got home last night we had WATER! Can I just tell you how amazing it is to turn on the tap and have water come out? To be able to take a shower, wash our hands, do laundry, turn on the dishwasher, and get a drink is WONDERFUL!

Speaking of which.... I have to go. I have stacks of dishes and laundry in my house that need to get done. Plus I'm feeling thirsty. Maybe I'll go get a drink of water!


  1. So happy to hear you have water again! I hope your day is as beautiful as you! ♥ Hugs!

  2. I'm so happy to hear this is all fixed!!!! What a lot of trouble it was though - yikes!

    Have fun with that laundry! =)

  3. Hooray for water running inside the pipes, inside the house, as it is supposed to! I bet the boys had a blast watching the workers.

  4. That's good news! I felt like you when our power was out for more than 24hrs one day.......I appreciated it a little more afterwards :o)

  5. Sorry you've been having so much trouble! And how fast was that to get them out there in the same day you called. Now THAT's service. Glad you are back to having water.

  6. glad to hear you have water!! that has to be frustrating.

    that photo of your boys is adorable! those faces make me smile. :)

  7. Hip hip hurray! Send those men my way. I have so much work they could do.... ;)

  8. Yeah, so glad that you got water back.

    Big Trucks, Hard Hats = Little Boys Dream come true. Adorable little guys you have there.
