Rainy season began a few weeks ago. We've even been hit by our first typhoon! You'd think we would have water...but we don't. We are quite positive (after some detective work) that our neighbor has been blocking our water. She was frustrated when we couldn't afford to hire her to wash anymore, so we suppose this is her non-verbal way of getting back.

That said, we've been toting quite a bit of water. We buy purified water to drink and then use the jugs to tote water from the well. We each use about a bucket to shower and then dishes usually take another bucket per meal. The killer is laundry. As you can see it generally takes about 15 jugs of water. At first I could barely carry two jugs from the well to our yard. I'm proud to report I now can tote up to four jugs with ease.

For a girl who almost failed summer gym because she couldn't do a push-up...this is a big deal.


  1. I know this isn't the point of this entry, but I am really digging those argyle shoes in the last picture! I'm enjoying your updates, Amanda - it all sounds like such an adventure!

  2. whaaaaat... how is your neighbor getting away with that?? at least you'll have more awesome biceps than her after this.

  3. I know right??!?...we keep asking ourselves that same question. We figured it out so late in the game, we figured it was too late to do anything about it. We are expert toters now though.

    I'm glad you like the shoes Drew. :)
