Well, my new year is starting with a bang...or I should say, a leak! Our hot water heater is cracked and we won't be installing a new one until Saturday-so no hot water delivered to us conveniently! Fortunately, in this wonderful modern age we live in, electricity is my friend and I have massive pots to boil water in for any use we need. I've had to wash my dishes by hand (I'm sure you are all balking at me right now, but my least favorite chore is washing dishes by hand and my dishwasher is truly a workhorse around here!). It has been a long time since I've washed dishes by hand and it really hasn't been that bad. In fact, seeing how much water I save may be a turning point for me. We shall see!
The question arises now on how we bathe. It's interesting because most of us don't think about this due to the fact that we have hot, running water. With six of us, bathing is a pressing issue. Hmmmmm. We had to come up with something so let me show you our make-shift tub in the tub!
