What Would You Choose?

People always ask, "If you had to choose, would you lose an arm or a leg, an eye or a ...". Well, today's question is what major household convenience can you live without? It's been surprising for me to learn which things are most challenging or not so challenging at all.

No hot water in the kitchen or no washer/dryer?
No functioning stove or no light in the kitchen?
No light in the kitchen or no light in the bathroom?
No water or no electricity?
No electricity or no heat?

None of the above is not an option. The pic above shows the only remaining functioning appliances in the kitchen. We disconnected the gas line running to the stove this weekend, so we are now stoveless. We have no microwave, so it's all about the toaster oven and the coffee pot. Our life has become one big salad after another which isn't such a bad thing.

As I stepped into the shower this morning and turned on the water, the knob came off in my hand.
