Epic Fail!

Remember how about two months ago, I was totally appalled by the amount of water we use (142 gallons a day), and I said I was going to reduce that by 10%. Well, I didn't.  Not only did I not reduce the amount of water we use, but our usage actually went up by 33 gallons a day! The only good news is, that's still less than the amount we used during this period last year.

Really, the only thing I can attribute it to is that I started this new work out regimen which involves two work outs a day, and therefore two showers a day (I'm still doing two workouts, but I've switched to generally doing both workouts in the evening, since there's no way I'm getting up early enough to do two in the morning, and two showers a day is just a lot of work).

Captain America just walked in and informed me that 1) he's been turning on the sprinklers, and 2) I have scary eyes.  Sometimes when he tells me this, I think of the scene in Toy Story where Mrs. Potato Head is packing Mr. Potato Head's angry eyes, but generally, I just realize that I forgot to take off my eye makeup before doing my Insanity workout.

  1. Tell Captain America to take his business out in the yard. Think of how much water you'll save on flushing! :P And I'd no doubt be horrified with our water usage, since we do so much more laundry now!
