I am going to go insane... shower time troubles?

My 3 year old daughter, as of the past few months, HATES showers or baths. She fights taking either one. As she is potty trained I have her take one daily because we don't have any wipes, so I want to be sure that she is clean in her girly areas. But she screams and cries and refuses to cooperate. So as you can imagine not only is she soaked, but so am I and my bathroom. Has any one else had this problem?? She also will go around crying that she wants to take a shower, after she spent her entire time in the shower crying that she didn't want to take one. My husband works nights, so 21 hours a day it's just me and the kids. And since I have no one here to step in and give me a chance to catch my breath I really need to figure out what is wrong and what are some things I can do to alleviate the stress for both her and I... for my sanity's sake.
