let the games begin

We’ve been making a concerted effort to save energy whenever we can.  We open the windows when it’s cool, turn off lights when we’re not using them and so on.

So when we got our power bill in the mail with a monthly progress report congratulating us on only spending $17 more than our most efficient neighbor, I was intrigued.  As hard as we’ve been working at it, there’s a neighbor who’s saving even more.  I told the kids and immediately they exclaimed, “We’re in 2nd place?”  (We’re a wee bit competitive.)  So let the energy saving games begin!

(I have a feeling now that the kids think this is a game we’ll come in first place next month!)
