wits end

This is just insane, the cold, it really has to stop. I can't take it anymore. The water is frozen, the car frozen, hopefully. At least t he washer works, the toilet is starting to freeze after just an hour of non flushing and the bathroom sink is now hot water only. Which wouldn't be a bad thing except the hot water tap is broken so it is VERY slow, and that is how I'm filling water jugs for cooking and washing dishes. I need three gallons to wash dishes and we use about 3 gallons for drinking and cooking. It now takes almost 10 minutes to fill ONE milk jug. I really am about to lose it. Add in everything else, like the car not working, the likelyhood of needing a new one, the fact that we can't keep it above 60 in the living rm/kitchen (where we are most of the time). The cats water is frozen, yes, it's so cold in there that the water froze. Just very frustrated right now. I want to be able to wash dishes normally, you know with a sink of water and the ability to properly rinse them.

On top of that I am so, so, so exhausted. I have not had a good nights sleep in over a week, or one that was longer than about 4 hours. And tomorrow was suppose to be my post partum visit with the midwife, Ihave been looking forward to this for weeks, and now we can't go. Something needs to give and it's going to be days before it's above freezing, I don't htink I can do days.

Forgive the whining, it's probably mostly because I'm so exhausted. I know there are bigger things in the world, just needing a little pity party right now.

I'm so sorry. I wish there were something I could do, but you're in my thoughts.

Thanks Jean, I know it'll pass, and it looks to warm up nicely by next Thursday. I'm just so frustrated and it's been a LONG day. I really think it's just because I'm so tired. I hope your snow stops and goes away soon :).
