Murdo Girl…Invisible

When they said they were going to put our water and sewer in this week, they didn’t mean Monday or today. I think they’re purposely playing around with my emotions, and that can be a dangerous thing to do. They have added insult to the injury the electric company heaped on me until I was close to snapping. Do you think they could be in cahoots? Is there a conspiracy against my tiny home? Maybe they’re not used to tiny houses and to them they are of no consequence…invisible to the utility naked eye. Not worthy of their precious water. I should be happy they begrudgingly gave me electricity. I could still be waterless in the dark.

Wait…I forgot to breathe.

Kip said, “Call them.”

“Hello my name is Mary McNinch and I was told your guys were going to put our water and sewer in this week. Can you give me an idea what day that might be because we’re trying to line up a plumber to hook it up to our house so we can live there.”

The water company: We can’t  tell you that because it might rain and we don’t dig in the rain. We only dig when it’s dry and it’s supposed to rain.”

Me, again: But if it doesn’t rain, will you still do it this week? Hello?

In the beginning….


When I got off the phone I heard Kip on the phone with the satellite TV service.


“Hi, this is Kip McNinch. I need you to come and set up the satellite service at my new house. Also, I need a smaller box because I got this new stand with an electric fireplace in it, and the side shelves are smaller. When can you be there? You’ll be there at eight o’clock tomorrow morning? I guess I can be there that early…See Ya!”

I’m telling you…I’m invisible…

    This is your last project, remember? Hope you and Kip have another 30 years on this earth to sit back and remember how much fun all of your projects were!

        Rained again tonight but only one tiny drop of water fell from skylight so hopefully they caulked it as a stopgap measure until they can install a new one.

    Breathe. It will all get done. At least I imagine you have weatherproofing on your roof? See, there is always someone ready to upstage you re/ the disasters, Mary. Sorry about that. In the meantime, I have plenty of water here for you to borrow…

    Invisible might have its advantages. Is that TV large enough for Kip? Is it tiny enough for the tiny house? Is it wide enough for that wall? Will it get burned up by the new fireplace? I gotta go. Bye.
