Always Look on the Bright Side

013

I was lounging in the bath last night, when I realized how wonderful it is to have a bathtub.  Not too long ago, I was “living” in a shack on a beach with very few creature comforts.

In no particular order, here are five things for which I’m super grateful:

  1. A bathtub!  I don’t know if cleanliness is next to Godliness, but it’s next to impossible with only a teeny, tiny shower stall.
  2. A real kitchen with actual appliances, including a full size fridge/freezer.  In my initial excitement at having the technology to freeze food, I may have eaten far too much ice-cream.  I’m over my ice-cream feeding frenzy now…mostly.
  3. In-house laundry facilities.  Not only do I have a squeaky clean body, but pristine clothes to cover it with!
  4. Improved mental health.  My mainland year was tough, and I almost crumbled.  I’m stronger and healthier now.
  5. Seeing my Boy doesn’t require a ferry ride (or two.)  We’re both on the Island, separated only by a couple hundred kms of well-maintained highway.  This is likely a contributing factor to #4.

  1. I sure appreciate my appliances, there was a day (years actually) when I had to go to a laundromat. During the time when we didn’t have a bathtub, I was thankful for a shower and running water. I never take things for granted anymore.
