I'm PROOF, a single homesteader is not only lazy, but creative

The leaky kitchen faucet still isn't fixed, but I wont need to fix it for another year or so (or until a woman moves in with me :>), thanks to my "broken " dishwasher and I'm not losing as much water.

Being single, I wash dishes in the washer every 3 days. my drip is about 2 gallons a day. My solution is to park the faucet over a three gallon bucket in the one sink and use the other sink for rinsing and such. The dishwasher controller wont allow the water to fill initially, so I have to bucket fill it first to start , then it runs its cycle properly. So I add the soap and bleach and drip bucket, run the washer and return the bucket to the sink. Between dishwashings, I dipper the bucket water for utensil rinsing.

I know, if a girl moves in this has to be fixed, but for just me, No Problemo :>)

Hope ya'll arn't laughing too hard at my lazy, cheap and outdide the box solution.

And you have nothing better to do with your time? I find it hard to believe that you are saving anything by following these proceedures. Other than the fact that you are a chronic procrastinator. Hmmm! whst ever floats your boat Jay! Seems you would save a lot of time and energy from being wasted simply by either turning off the water suppy under the sink until it is needed or by fixing the thing. You know it isn't difficult to fix, you helped me with mine!

Enough said!

I don't to tear mine apart just yet and it would cut into my gardening and web surfing time :>) I also think its cool that two broke things can work together in harmony so well. If all of our marriages had held that quality, this board wouldn't exist :>)

I will remain "the lazy one"

P.S. I replied to your email this morning. Let me know how it turns out.
