100 Things To Say

HOLLA! It's More Than A Single Mom's 100th post. And believe it or not, I think there may be people that have read most of those posts! I miss you and love you all.

For now, let me leave you with this little story. Tiger is an environmentalist at heart. He's so anal about paper plates and walking and water and I could go on and on. We hate the Nipsco bill, especially in the winter. Feel my pain? Damn midwest winters. Anyhow, we decided forever ago to share the utility bills every month, alternating who pays it each month. So, this brings me to my little story.

We're in the bathroom one morning brushing our teeth and getting the crusts out of our eyes at 5:30 a.m.

The water is on.

Tiger turns the water off. Continues brushing.

I give him the early morning glare that says, "Don't mess with me."

Him not understanding that I haven't had caffeine yet, decides to smirk through his toothpaste and turn the water off. This went on a couple of more times.......

I hate when he turns the water off while I am brushing my teeth. Growing up, we just left the water on when we brushed our teeth.

He looks at me and says, "How many times must I tell you that it's wasteful to leave the water on?

My reply? "It's not my month to pay the water bil." Turned the water on one last time before I left the bathroom.

My point: Just don't annoy me before I've had some caffeine.

****My question to you. Do you turn the water off when you brush your teeth? Or do you leave the water running?****

I turn it off but only because I don't like any extra noise in the morning at all.

I leave it running, hot and cold together cause my teeth are sensitive to just cold. Funny! Glad you are back posting again..I have missed you! I know what you mean about our Nipsco bills this winter...I need a second job.

I TRY to turn it off but leave it on too often. Jeff has to have HOT SCALDING water when he brushes his teeth so we can never brush together!

Old habits die hard. I try to remember to turn it off, but most of the time, leave it running.

Glad to hear from you again, Jen.

I'm bad. I leave it on. I'm with you, though.....leave a girl alone until she gets a caffeine fix!
