Birkenstocks and Recycling Bins
My inner hippy loves to emerge now and again, and what better day than Earth Day? I started my day by slipping into my comfy cozy, but not quite fashionable, birkenstocks. I had full intentions to replant some flowers on our patio, but the day got the best of me, so I had to cut that from our activity list.
We've lived in Westbrook Townhomes for three years now. There has not been a recylcing bin in the complex in those three years. When we first moved in, we were outraged. Well, I was outraged; I'm pretty sure Casey cares more about his ingrown hairs than he does about recycling.
My laziness got the best of me, and eventually I forgot all about my recycling rage issues. Today I decided I needed to make an effort and do some good. So Miss Maddie and I made a trip to Target, bought a trashcan, then colored the sheet above to label our new recycling bin. I will have to make weekly/daily trips to Dobson and Baseline, but I babysit near there so it shouldn't be too hard. Right? Eeek! I'm nervous my laziness will again get the best of me. Have I mentioned I haven't been to the gym once this week? Nor have I done any sort of cleaning improvements at my house. Yeah, I'm lazy, but my intentions are always always good.
Happy Earth Day!
