I realize there are those who dont have indoor plumbing or clean water, & my heart goes out to them. I guess we take those things for granted sometimes. I did until today when a water main broke near us & we had very little water pressure all day *My shower was just a trickle. I couldnt do laundry which really puts me behind. Now it's fixed, but rusty. What simple conveniences do you appreciate having?

I was in a small village in Ukraine for two weeks. As soon as we got to a hotel in a bigger city, the first thing that I did was take a long, hot shower. We had stayed with a couple and to this day it still amazes me on what they did everyday. They had no indoor plumbing but they did have a shower room, where you could heat some water, put it in a large bucket and it had a drain at the bottom of the bucket that you could stand under to take a shower. Also, they had an outhouse. Of course, while I was there I just had to start my period. In the outhouse, there was a metal can with cut up catalogs. I thought it was a trashcan, nope, it was what they used for toilet paper. Having experienced that made me very appreciative of what I do have.
