This afternoon we received our utilities bill, for the July 14th through August 16th billing period, in the mail. Go ahead, take a guess. Nope, higher. Nope, higher still.
Granted, that number includes both electric and water, but holy crap, Batman. From this point forward we'll let our lawn go completely (it was already on its way out, thanks to the drought, but we were delaying the inevitable by watering three times a week), and institute a diapers/underwear-only dress code inside the house (we were already at 77 or 78 degrees during the day, so now we'll aim for 78 or 79 and wear fewer clothes).
When will the insanity end?!
