    Oh man. And here I thought not using disposable cups would be easy. Keep forgetting to tote my mug around....and then there are those emergency diet-coke runs thru the fast-food joints....Here's hoping the next 2 days I'll remember!

      the way I stay away from the disposable cups is find a cup that I like that really catches my attention and I keep it with me or in my area of sight

    My, a 5" shower (water on, water off, water on) is....doable, but not all that much fun in the AM. Brrr. Gotta add a bucket to capture grey water.

    5" showers? Eeeeek! But clearly better than my delicious 20" indulgence. Guess it goes against the challenge to do nothing but take long showers between now and Oct 11 (sigh)
