We just got our new recycling bin.
I'm inspired to be less trashy.
Starting this week, I'm challenging myself to reduce the amount of trash we set out at the road each Tuesday morning by 6:30 am or it won't get picked up. (actually for the past two weeks, they've skipped us and I had to call and get them to come pick up our trash a day late)

Anyway, it's completely ridiculous that we produce so much garbage.
Just from tuesday evening and wednesday morning we filled up an entire trash bag.
That included diapers, so it' snot totally my fault, but I can do way better.
Now that we can recycle, I'm challenging myself to a one-bag-a-week garbage quota.
I'll keep diapers in a separate container, give leftovers to the dog, and recycle like a mad woman. 
I will be amazed if I can get down to one bag.
I'm predicting 2 1/2 to 3 bags will be the reality.

Also this week, I've been caring for a sourdough starter.
I started it myself with active dry yeast and it's been going strong for 5 or 6 days.
I'm making a loaf of bread off of it right now, so we'll see if I'm a good bread-starter-caregiver.

In other news, Lillee is talking more than Maddy and sprinting around the house (on hands and knees of course). The child can crawl like a maniac.

Maddy doesn't like being potty trained. She prefers to run naked through the house peeing on things. It's been a smelly time.

And here's what you've been waiting for: totally unexplained, uncaptioned photos of my life.


  1. Good for you for recycling! Its hard to keep strong on recycling. and those pictures were great. :) the baked things looked SO yummy! :)

  2. I totally love the uncaptioned photos. Maybe I should do that instead of posting so many on facebook. lol

    As for recycling; I do it some... my favorite thing to do is keep all of my veggie/fruit scraps and then bury it in the yard. I also include egg shells and coffee grounds. My flowers are growing like mad and I reduce my garbage!

    Good luck with it all and keep posting. I love reading about other peoples lives. ;D
