This is exactly what I would love to say to the Ontario Government right now!!
Someone within this wise government decided that it would be a great idea to install "SMART METERS"..
Personally, I think the government is just trying to piss Stay at Home Mommies off!!
For those of you that don't know, now we basically get charged different rates for Hydro, depending on what time we use it.
If I decide to do my laundry during the day now, I basically pay double what I would pay after 7pm..
So.... now while I'm home ALL day, i have to stare at my mountain of laundry.
When my kids FINALLY go to sleep, I can start my laundry!
Because ,that is exactly what I want to be doing in my only free time!!
Evenings are usually spent plopped down on the couch, reading blogs and watching Big Brother.
Now, I do laundry all night, and it sucks!!!! Especially when I could have been doing it all day.
Sure I could still do it during the day, but we already pay $250 a month for hydro. I can't imagine what our bill will skyrocket to if I don't switch up my routine.
You'd think the government would know that they really don't want to mess with mommies, but obviously they don't care.
I'm not happy, but what can I do? I'm not happy about a lot of things (gas prices, taxes, food prices) but I guess, like everyone else, I suck it up and move on.
I stay up until 1am every morning and finish my laundry!!! Grrr..
Silly post, I know, but as I sit and stare at my laundry that I refuse to do.... I had to vent!!
This is what has me so upset!!
