I just got my electric bill and have come to the realization that my lifestyle must change. Some things have to go. The refrigerator I will keep, as for the rest:
No more lights. No more air conditioner. No more fans. I will sit in the dark and swelter.
No more CPAP. No more cd/radio/alarm clock (at least until August).
And from now on I shower only once per week — and only in cold water. The electric toothbrush must go.
No more laundry. I’ll just have to be much more careful about dirtying my clothes.
No more hair dryer. No more curling iron. (I am not sure where they are, but if I ever find them I will not use them.)
No more electric coffee pot. No more sandwich maker or microwave. No more toaster. All foods will be cooked on the gas range or eaten raw.
Both my telephone and my cell phone use power. They must be unplugged. The cell phone can recharge whenever I am driving the car.
Don’t panic. The computer will remain on,
my priorities are still in order.
