right now, there's nothing i'd like more than a hot bath and a glass of wine, but i don't have any water or money for a drink.
the hot water heater at my house is broken, and replacing it will be almost prohibitively expensive. city codes and the particulars of my forced air heating system make the cost very high, even if i do much of the labor myself, which i am not sure if i can, physically.
of course this has to happen while my husband is out of the country. he's camping in the paracas desert, unreachable by phone, internet or post.
