Money

Our electric bill this month was $133.

We are no longer allowed to use the lights, except in the kitchen. Right now I am doing a contraband load of laundry. When hubby gets back home, I will somehow have to prove to him that I have been doing laundry in the resevoir. I am working on a way to hook up all of the animals to a wheel, and then trying to figure out how to channel their energy into electricity.

The cats just lay down when I attach them to the wheel. Stupid cats. Tomorrow I am going to go buy a whip. That'll get 'em moving.

Hubby is also losing his mind because I just spent $100 on scrubs. Actually, I am kind of losing my mind because I spent $100 on scrubs. Are there coupons for scrubs?

Now I have to go clean the house. I have a friend coming in tomorrow for the Colts game. I will be sure to tell her not to eat off any of the dishes, because I washed them in cold water. Hot water makes the water heater run, which uses electricity.

Also, no showers. Bathe in the resevoir.

If you really need some hot water, you could burn some of your purses under a big pot...

Don Quixote - NEVER MENTION SUCH AN ATROCITY AGAIN!

Oh, and good luck with the cat wheel. I have to admit our cats are so steadfastly lazy it's a marvel. Let me know if you get it working.

That's awesome!!! Just be careful, the pet labor laws are kind of strict :-) My favorite penny pinching story is still the re-usable vacuum bag story.....

This book is like the movie Serendipity. Wow! the first time around, still pretty great for consequent readings.
