I know I live in the driest state in the driest continent. I know we're all supposed to be saving water. Short showers, redirect the washing machine rinse water on to the garden etc.
But sometimes....now and again....once in a blue moon....I step into that shower and run the water fast and hot. And I stay under there! For at least 5 minutes, sometimes 10.
I don't do it often and I tell myself it's okay because I only wash one or two loads a week, dishes are only washed up once a day, the garden is watered according to regulations imposed by our government. Plus I don't grow plants that need lots of water.
I figure the guilt is worth it when my achy old bones and muscles relax under the hot spray and when I get out of the shower I feel renewed.
