Okay, homages to old TV show theme songs aside, I took stock, once again of my water situation and realized that I just might squeak out too weeks before having to dump and fill again.
I have two jugs that I store water in. I pump water out of my 5 gallon water cooler jug. I store water in my five gallon cube jug that you are supposed to take camping . . . the kind with a spigot.
Well, that ‘five gallon’ Cube Jug can actually hold about 6 gallons, if you fill that up to the tippy-top (which I do). When my Water Cooler Jug is down a fair bit, I will top this one up with the Cube Jug.
This leaves a gallon or two in that Cube Jug, which can come in handy, as in now. This, coupled with my small 1.5 Litre bottles, that I can use to pilfer water from here and there means that I can make it until Sunday Afternoon.
This is the new time of the week that I have decided (unless it turns out to be a debacle) to dump and fill up. I will do this after leaving my Western Home to head back to my Eastern Home. I will just take a northern detour to my favourite free (so far) dumping station with water.
Since today is payday, I could, if pressed, just decide to fill up tomorrow morning first thing, as I have in days gone by. I do want to stretch and press my luck this time. I have a thing about hitting targets that I aim for, however.
I will make it, I will be okay. I will make my water last. Yes I will still wash daily, cook, clean and stay hydrated. I will just do so while being very water wise for the next few days.
As always : keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
