I Can Shower Again!

August 25, 2014

My weekend was interesting.

It began Friday night with my daughter and I completing the Ice Bucket Challenge for A.L.S. Thanks again to Deana for that; it was actually quite refreshing. I just might start dumping a bucket of cold water over my head every Friday night, until Winter of course.

Saturday, the drains in our shower and bathroom sink backed up. My wife and daughter managed to get a shower in before all hell broke loose. I went nearly 30 hours without a shower before the problem was taken care of. Our landlord, and a local plumber, spent the afternoon clearing the sewage pipes on our property. As you can imagine, the smell was unpleasant to put it mildly.

The experience made me realize just how much I take for granted. In some countries, a daily, warm shower with clean water and a functioning sewage system are unattainable.

We should count our blessings more often.
