The day started out fine, but around 2:30 my dh went to brush his teeth and we had no water pressure. The fuses kept blowing for our water system. And, wouldn't you know it, our well pump died. Thank god for great neighbors. My dh was suppose to report for duty at 4 today, and with the water situation, he called to tell them that he would be late. They actually were p*ssed. He has not taken a day off since he has been there, and is never ever late. He told them that he couldn't leave me and the boys without any water. They told him that he had to go in. So, he told them that he would still be late. Well, after waiting for the repair people to call, my neighbor hooked us up to his water until we can get them out to fix the well pump. I don't know what I would have done without my neighbors. It was them that even knew what to look for. The best part about the entire situation, is that about a year ago, I decided that I thought it would be a good idea to put the well pump under our warranty coverage. So, I paid the extra amount and forgot about it. Thank god for me doing that because we were told that a well pump could run us anywhere from $400 for the actual pump to a total of close to $1000 to have them come out and do the work and including the well pump. Now with the warranty it will probably only cost us $50. Well, thanks for letting me vent. My dh was sweating it more than I am. I figure that I can't change it, so why worry. Have a nice weekend. Happy Mother's Day.
