Typical island life?!?!

Well, this past weekend has been one frustrating thing after another! Let me give you a little run down:

Friday: Water scheduled to be turned OFF from 10:00a.m.-4:30p.m. GEBE (the Water and Electricity Company) is changing the meters. Water never turned back on....

Saturday: No water. Power surge protector fried. Printer knocked off table and destroyed. Trying to go to the Welcome Breakfast.....nothing printed off, totally frazzled! Nighttime: water FINALLY turned back on. A/C Broke.

Sunday: Go to church by myself, Tom had to go do the Mock Anatomy Exam for his T.A.ing. Only made it through sacrament and part of Sunday school before wanting to kill my child. Went home early.

Sunday evening: Friend from the other tower comes by: entire ground floor flooded. Pipe broken that was installed by GEBE. Water turned off in both towers. A/C still broken.

Monday: Complain about a/c......still broken.

Tuesday: A/C guy comes....still broken. Our manager is now threatening the A/C company with a lawyer...

Who would have thought that such a simple amenity.....such as WATER...and air conditioning would be an issue! Especially when we're paying as much for rent as we are!!!!
So, to divert my frustration, I have some cute pictures and a video fo Ella :)
She found the DVD's....oops.
For some reason, she LOVES these shoes! She will bring me one of each and yell until I put them on! Then she giggles and runs around the house! It is quite funny :)

She tried to escape after bath time. I don't know where she was planning to go! No one will pick up a naked baby! They poop on the floor!

This is her enjoying a "free lifestyle". Silly girl! I have a feeling she will be one kid that will be hard to keep clothed once she is potty trained! Hahaha!

Oh dear, what a week! Well at least when you come back to the States you'll appreciate the simple pleasures of life (like a/c and water) more than 99% of the population does :) On the bright side you have a super adorable baby, I love Ella's mismatched shoes, so cute!
