Today's tip, collecting water while the shower gets hot, is one that falls under the category of things I don't do, but have thought about for a really, really long time, and just need to get started on making it a habit already. I spent last night and this morning thinking about why I don't do this and all I could come up with was I feel silly. I think others will find it silly. Who I don't know?? I shower alone these days and until this past November I was living alone. So who would know besides me?! Plus, isn't it sillier to watch perfectly good water go down the drain. The mind is a funny thing. Then I kept thinking about it and part of me doesn't want to see how much water is being wasted while I stand around waiting for water to warm up. Such a privileged thing to say and do. Collecting it in a bucket will force me to see it in a very measurable way. Then I'll have to reconcile all the gallons of water that I didn't collect since my life began. A really illogical reason to not start collecting it now. Having not even collected my first drop, I'm already worried about having more water than I'll know what to do with and just keep imagining buckets and buckets of water all over the house like Mickey Mouse in Fantasia.
