So far, my facebook friend has not responded to my comment on his status yesterday. Also, no comments here but I got one supportive email and one shout out on facebook from momawake who couldn't get my comments to work. Thanks!
I heard this disturbing statistic on the radio yesterday:
"According to the United Nations Environment Program, Americans spend more for trash bags than 90 of the world's 210 countries spend for everything!".
Wow! Can that be possible? Shame on us.
We generate about one bag of garbage every 3-4 weeks. I wonder if we can do better than that? We recycle glass, tin, plastic, paper, and cardboard. We haven't started composting yet because of the skunks....one day I hope to have a compost tumbler, but they are rather pricey. (Maybe someone who is about to retire could make one for us.) I know, I'm so demanding.
Today is 'take all the recyclables and garbage to the dump day'. Mom is going to accompany me. A girls day out. Woohoo! As I left Mom and Dad's this morning, Mom (who always looks cute in anything she wears) asked what she should wear for our special time out on the town.
I told her casual would be just fine. I don't think the County inmates who run the dump will mind if we don't get too gussied up.
Hope you are having as much fun as we are today - I've gotta go coordinate my work gloves with my sweat pants!
