This week has been not frugal at all. Our Kitchen sink froze. Which was fine as housing covers that. However, it's created a lot of plumbing issues and now we don't have running water downstairs, and not clean water to cook with, wash dishes, or drink. So we have a ton of dirty dishes, not enough clean ones to cook with, and no free tap water to drink. We've been eating out a lot

Soooo annoying, Beth. I would be highly irritated as well. *hugs* I hope they fix it quickly.

That stinks! When it gets super cold my mom lets the kitchen sink drip slowly overnight...a little higher water bill was better than a frozen pipe!

We don't pay the water bill, so thats not an issue. We normally leave the tap to drip, but it's gotten much colder here than it has been (it's been in the teens, last year it got to the -20's or so) and we have never had a frozen pipe. They are hesitant in doing a complete fix because our house is scheduled to be torn down at the end of the month. They need to move us, so it's really tough for everyone.

I grew up in NE. My mom babysat for numerous kids in our neighborhood. When I was looking through her Christmas cards/letters she got one from the parents of Renae. It talked about her and her siblings. It said her husband(can't remember his name) was stationed at ***. I couldn't figure out why that sounded familiar at first and then I thought that it must be the same as your address. Sure enough, same town. I just thought it would be funny if you knew her!
