While attending SUNY New Paltz, I went to hear a lecture on the work of women throughout the world. One of the most shocking statistics was the amount of time that women, all over the world spend getting water. I don't remember the exact number but it was well over 80% of their time is spent walking and carrying water!
This really hit home this week with two children and a stomach virus! In the course of three days, I gave five baths, and did 4 loads of laundry... just from the affects of this bug!
So, even though I had too clingy grumpy kids, I reminded myself that at least my house still didn't smell like a porta potty! For that, I am thankful!
