Have you ever had a conversation with one person, and been reminded why you fell in love with another?  That is what I experienced again today.  Chris' brother,John, came out to try to get my water working.  We talked a lot while he was working on it.  John is very much like his brother.  Their personalities are very similar, as are their values, the way they talk, the way they walk, and the way they treat others.  Pretty much everything about them is similar to exactly the same.  I enjoy talking to John as a friend.  While we talked, I would recognize the similarities and it would bring a smile to my face.  I'm sure John was wondering why, but it was because I would think of things Chris had said or done. He told me of things that his son William had said or done, and I would laugh really hard, because they are words or actions that I know he had heard either Chris or John say. 

John is so excited about the fact that his wife is pregnant with their second child.  A girl this time, due in July.  I am sure she will be Daddy's little girl as much as William is Daddy's boy.  I wish I could see Chris in that capacity.  He would be an amazing father.

Seeing John and talking to him today reminded me just how much I love Chris.  I hope Chris knows what I feel for him.  I know this is a more personal post than usual. I just am feeling so much tonight and needed to put it all into words. 

I hope you all have had an amazing weekend and have a wonderful week.

I WANT A SHOWER!  I haven't had water since last Sunday....and then the pressure was so low the shower was a trickle.  We called a friend of Chris who does plumbing to come fix it.  The first call went out on Monday.  I didn't expect him to respond before Tuesday. Then it took both Chris and I calling him to get a response.  He told Chris that he would call me and set up a time to come out...but he didn't call. Then Chris called his other friend who works with the first.  He told Chris he would be out Wednesday or Thursday to fix the pump. Needless to say he didn't show up or call.  By Friday Chris was livid.  He called the second friend again.  This time he promised to be here Friday to get it done.  He didn't show up, call, or respond to Chris' calls.  Finall Friday night, Chris called his brother John to come check it out.  He stopped this afternoon to check it out and will be back in the morning to try to get it done...that is, if he can get a pump tomorrow...

It has been a really long week.  Kind of like rustic camping at home.  We have hauled so much water from my ex-husband's house to flush the toilet and do mimimal washing up. I really want my water back SOON!
