Another N.E.W. day (no electricity wednesday)

Looks like NEW is going to be a permanent thing. It went really well last time. Except for my 15yr old son who whined all day ;-) I tried to get him and the hubby to play cards or a board game but hubby wanted to lay in bed and read and the boy just flat out refused. Maybe it will go better today/tonight. I'm going to make a huge effort to find something the boy will enjoy since he cant play video games on Wednesdays. As I have said in my other post, we are still using the air conditioning, (it was 108 here on Monday), and the refrigerator. Our water heater and stove are gas so that makes it a bit easier, but I try to cook on the grill for the most part. We are allowed to use anything that takes batteries as long as they are pre charged. NEW is a lot easier than it sounds. I think it's kinda fun. It forces you to do things differently than your everyday routine and I have a much greater appreciation for the things I usually take for granted. Plus I get to catch up on all those magazines I've been meaning to read ;-) Please consider trying it!!! It might save you some money on your electric bill, be a little kinder to our earth and can even bring you more in touch with those around you. You really have nothing to lose!!!!!!
