Four Daughters

This guest post from Werner Rogers

My wife and I have four daughters. I used to think that there would be no financial differences in having daughters versus having sons until they got married because of the price of their weddings. I was completely wrong. Each year, our power bill has gone up exponentially. From the moment our girls get up until the moment they go to bed, they are using so much electricity. It starts when they each take a 20 minute shower, then dry their hair, straighten their hair, and then curl it with a curling iron. Then they need special lighted mirrors to put their makeup on. They always leave their lights in their rooms on when they leave the house and I am constantly running around after them turning lights off. When they get home, they each get on the computer or watch TV. When they are not doing that, they are on the phone. Thank goodness they have cell phones because they do not use electricity except when they are charging. After last month’s power bill, I decided to see if I could find some better Electric Deals because our power bill is by far the highest it has ever been. Hopefully I’ll be able to save some money in this area somehow.
