    It wasn't easy at first, but I think I'm going to stick with the habit of shorter showers overall.

    I might not get the thermostat one done tomorrow, but I will definitely plan to install it by the end of the month.

    I showered last night, after not showering for the weekend of camping.  That should save even more water..!

    I haven't been timing it, but I'm pretty sure it's under 5 minutes!  Today was so fast my partner pointed it out.  So why were we late getting out the door? :(
