We are energy hogs!!!!!!!
Man oh man, got the damn electric bill today. The wife is still on holiday so I got the mail and looked through it today. This is something that I never do, I find my magazines and that's about it for me. I noticed the electric bill and thought I would take a look, let me first say that she is the one that pays all the bills and all that shit. I never write a check for anything, so I'm not sure how much any of that stuff comes to. I just try to make sure there is enough money in the account to take care of all of our needs. I mentioned in a comment on my last post that I thought we may use 10 or 15 kw per day, having no idea of the real amount. Well you can imagine my surprise when I seen that last months average was 50kw per day. Yes you read that right.....50...a friggin day!! I had no idea what hogs we where. I am looking around the room right now and I can see why. We usually have 2 or 3 Tv's on at the same damn time, the wife has a shit load of those little christmas light looking things wrapped around everything in sight, dvd player's plug in, Direct TV boxes everywhere you look, everyone sleeping with a fan on during the night and the list goes on and on and on. This place is suckin the friggin life outa me. I may just turn off about half the breakers in the breaker box before she comes home tomorrow. LOL...it would be like the end of the world, talk about the shit hittin the fan. All of this has had me thinking even more about getting off grid, this has got to stop. It's nonsense, it's stupid....and it's gonna change if it kills everybody in the damn place. No wonder there is never enough money, we're sticking it all back in those damn wall outlets.
