Getting better

Zachy's foot must be getting better. He is walking now. Limping, but walking.
This morning he had forgotten that it was hurt and went to stand up. Oh my, he howled. Poor thing.
Last night, I would just touch the ball of his foot and he would whimper.
Right now, he, Collin, and Dillon are out drawing with sidewalk chalk. It is beautiful again today. Matthew's still doing school work.
We are having a water issue. We were getting Culligan water delivered. Except it was costing us an arm and a leg. There is a self help store on base that gives you free stuff for your house. One of those things is a culligan water filter. So, we decided we would just pop that baby on, and cancel our service.
OH. MY. GOODNESS. Our water is terrible. It tastes so bad. Even filtered, no one wants to drink it. I feel like we will all get montazuma's revenge, it's that bad. I'm trying to think of our best option, what I mean is our cheapest option.
Here are the things I've come up with:
1. We could just go buy bottle wal mart water. This is a pretty cheap answer. Twenty of their 20 oz bottles is only $4.
2. Get those gallon jugs and take them in to be filled everytime we go to the store.
3. See about renting the dispenser only, which is $11 and getting the 5 gallon water jugs and filling those at wally world. This would be cheaper than getting the culligan water delivered, but the most expensive of the choices, I think. To fill one 5 gallon jug is $1.30.
I just don't know. I guess it comes down to math, and I need to figure it out.
We've decided that we need to tighten our belts. We want to be able to head up north this summer to visit family. OK, so I want to go to Disneyland, but Matt insists it would better to spend our money to see our family. I suppose he's right. ;-) I'm kidding of course. Partly. OK, maybe not. ;-)
ANYWAY...must tighten belts...which brings the water issue. What to do....
