I am obsessed with conserving energy--and I'm a republican!
Haha. Anyway. I think it started with my reusable grocery bags. Then I saw a girl on Oprah who cut her energy bill in half by unplugging all the appliances in her home.
Now, I unplug everything. The microwave, the clock in Shirley's room (she doesn't need it, right?), lamps that are not in use, the VCR, the toaster, the coffee pot, the washer and dryer. You name it. If it's not in use, it's probably unplugged.
Also, I sit in the dark a lot of the time. And I lay awake at night trying to think of ways to cut back on our energy consumption. If we didn't have the baby I swear it would be 60 degrees in here.
If I could figure out a way to do it, I would unplug the fridge...I just don't think it would be wise.
I think it's getting a little weird.
Next time you come over, would you mind bringing your own slippers and candle?
