A very happy day!


Ariel is amazing! I have to back up a little bit and explain. You see, we don't have hot water. That's okay though, I've been fine mostly, it's just the way it is. So when it gets colder outside and the water is cold because it sits in a tank on the roof, I just heat some water on the stove and put it in a bucket in the tub to bathe with from a cup. That's worked for 2.5 years and somehow, you get used to it. Ariel loves the cold water, even when he has the option for warm he chooses cold, I dunno, he likes that sort of thing. That being said, I LOVE hot water. One of my favorite things to do when I go back to Oregon is sit in the tub and take long showers. Well, Ariel knows that and so for my Bday today...he got me a hot water heater!!!!! They should install in this afternoon and I am so excited. I will now have 8 lovely gallons of hot water to be the cleanest girl on the island. This is a very good day.
