  •  I'm reminded of what LBJ once said (4+ / 0-)

    Someone asked him what his greatest accomplishment was, and he said rural electrification.  He knew how hard farm wives had to work hauling water, tending the stove, and doing laundry by hand, and electricity would save them a huge amount of time and effort.  Evidently women came up to him for years afterward to thank him, tears in their eyes, and tell him that electricity had kept them from dying young the way their mothers had.

    The best of luck to you in the new place - that doesn't sound like much fun. :(

      We'll be all right.

      When you come to find how essential the comfort of a well-kept home is to the bodily strength and good conditions, to a sound mind and spirit, and useful days, you will reverence the good housekeeper as I do above artist or poet, beauty or genius.
