There are so many conveniences that I’ve gotten used to (pampered by?) in my daily life. Six months ago I might have named the internet or computers. Modern medicine & peer-backed science is a high line item as well.
However, I’m humbly required to notice that nothing has affected my day-to-day activities as much as indoor plumbing – especially since we bought this house.
I feel like I am fighting against the water every day.
Either the well is dry or drying up and I have half a sink of dishes left. Or, the kitchen sink is leaking — oh wait, now it’s spraying across the room.
Sometimes the hard water makes my skin itch like mad. Or not feel quite clean in the shower because it’s so …silky? (So very odd) And particularly, when the filter needs to be replaced in the pitcher because the particulates are too high to safely drink the unfiltered water for very long.
Please don’t take this the wrong way. I am very grateful for the indoor plumbing. No matter how long it takes me to adjust to this particular house’s quirks.
But WOW did I take it all for granted up until now.
