The "bother" comes from a pricked conscience. The envy is what bothers me at times.
I'm very happy for you. Keep up the good work.

I grew up with no elec/water/indoor toilet. we carried water in, used an outhouse, heated water on a wood stove, had gas lamps. Not a hardship if U know nothing else. Kids today do not appreciate what they have & expect even more.
Imagine if all the power stopped on this planet-especially the US-I don't think a lot of people would adjust too well.
I am glad you waffled, if you would. It seems you have the basis for a writen work there that only needs personal clarity. These questions are meant as writing prompts. It seems that in your case it was successful.
