Today I am thankful for indoor plumbing. Seriously... I know it sounds silly... but on these chilly mornings, I am so thankful I can sleepily shuffle to the bathroom and not outside to an outhouse. I'm glad I'm not heating water on the stove for a bath in a tin washtub and I love that my OCD-self can wash my hands as many times as I want. I've heard stories from my parents and grandparents of going out to the outhouse and am so glad I don't have to contend with the weather, critters, the smell, and the deep black hole. I'm grateful I've never had to traipse through the yard to pee, that's all. Amen for modern plumbing!
