I'll gladly send you sunshine if you send us the water - I am tired of
recycling my shower water and baby's bath water and washing machine water -
a necessary thing with only 6 months worth of water remaining in our water

Still the exercise is good for ridding my post pregnancy weight and it helps
me appreciate what I do have - at least I don't have to go walking for miles
to get something to drink and wash in...yet!
