How did I survive before....

Do you ever wonder how you would have survived in say the middle ages? I have been doing a lot of research on that time period for my newest book endeavor and I don't think I would have made it. Especailly after cooking the other night when I realized that I would never survive with out my rice cooker

I seriously thought that and then I realized I survived just fine for the first 25 years of my life without one, but now. I don't know...For a moment I let myself feel selfish for think that, but then I decided that I am just glad that I live in a country and a time that I can be thankful for things as trivial as Rice cookers and this and this. And all the other things that I am sure I could live without, but don't really want to. So yes, I am selfish, but I am grateful that I can be selfish. So I will continue being glad every time I cook rice that I can just push the button and have it come out perfect every time.

Do you ever wonder will people will say abotu us in three hundred years. "I could have never lived in the 21st century without my super suction house cleaner, I would have had to use a vacumn to clean the floor!"

Just wanted to add that after I posted this, my mom came and brought me 60 lbs of rice since there is a shortage. SO now I can really use the cooker!

I love my rice cooker. Forget the pan...Hey thanks for all your fun comments on my blog and I am for sure waiting for you guys to come down.

I often have the thought that I couldn't have survived if born in a different time. I am WAY too dependent on things that make my life easier...like say a washer and dryer, and a dishwasher. I guess I need to go get a rice cooker too!

I would've been the biggest embarassment for a woman in the middle ages, or pioneer times. I was definitely supposed to be in this day and age!

I figure that we wouldn't know any better and thus would be able to handle it fine. HOWEVER, if we were to go back in time and get stuck there, I'm quite sure that I'd die.

I sometimes think about that too! I guess they did not even know what they were missing out on!

I do think about that sometimes...I am thankful for modern medicine! Plus a whole slew of other things :)

I'm with you. I'm grateful that I can be selfish. We went to the sand dunes yesterday and we had this very conversation. I am grateful for my shower and lotion!!
