Utilities

This is what I looked like after opening this months water bill.



Seriously, how can water cost so much in a state where it rains 10 months out of the year? I mean I realize we water 8 cows and installed a water system for the front lawn, which ran less than 2 weeks because it started to... rain again.

I am not going to tell you how much it was, all I am going to say is... I could be sporting a pretty snazzy pair of True Religion jeans and still have enough left over for dinner.

So, in the future, when you run into anyone in our family, you might want to stand down wind. We are cutting back. Only the necessities. Once a week shower - mandatory. 8 oz of water unless you have done extra work around the house, then you can have another 4 oz. There will be no more water included in brushing your teeth, unless you want to use part of your alloted 8 oz. That is just to start. I am sure we will crack down even more as my imagination takes off.

I think my dear husband will be checking for leaks tonight once he sees the new rules posted.

That's a bummer about the high utility bill. On the flip side, we have a well and deal with that lovely orangish ring in the toilet and shower from the iron in the water.
