Take the challenge and go NEW

Thursday, June 17, 2010

NEW (no electricity wednesday), was a breeze! If my 15yr old wasn't such a baby and constantly complaining about not being able to use his XBOX, I think I could do it at least twice a week. I think Tuesday and Thursday would work. The thing I found I missed the most was the microwave. I had to drape a towel over it because I kept trying to use it. I had to go all "old school" and thaw out stuff in hot water in the sink. We have a gas stove and water heater so that made things really easy. We all took our showers a little earlier so we would have enough light. I cooked dinner and we ate while there was still natural light. I worked in the garden until dark (which is almost 9pm here in central CA. I am really going to try to do this every Wednesday. I know I can get my hubby to buy into it, and I can just wear ear plugs so I don't have to listen to the boy.

    Great idea, maybe get a board game or something for the boy? I remember when we used to have fun as kids with a deck of cards!
