Lazy Woman's Way to Go Green

Most of us are looking for ways to go green and be even a little bit more environmentally-friendly. Well, in my summer laziness, I have realized that I have done a few things that help without even meaning to.

For example, in our bathroom, we have a light with three bulbs. About a week ago, one of them burnt out and I just haven't gotten around to changing it. But look, I saved lots of energy!

The drain in our bathroom sink seems to be a little slow. I have tried several times to pull out the stopper to clean it out but haven't been able to get it and am afraid I'll break it (need to ask Dennis for help). In the meantime, I have cut down on my water consumption so as not to fill the sink.

Yesterday, Olive and I were walking with our neighbors for exercise. We needed to go to the grocery and were walking right by it so instead of having to make a separate trip (and loading up the car, kid in the carseat etc.), we just stopped on our way back. This also meant we brought our super sturdy reusable bags because the plastic just wouldn't cut it to walk home with.

So, if you're lazy sometimes, don't beat yourself up - you may even be doing something great for the environment!

My neighbor came over to my house and yelled at me over my dog!

I have a dog that I can't keep in my yard. I have tried everything and she always finds a way out. Anyway, this lady comes to my home, knocks on my door and when i open the door she points her finger at me and yells obscenities at me. Apparently my dog was in HER neighbors garbage and then pooped on HER NEIGHBORS LAWN! Why didn't she come and talk to me like a civil human being? Why was she a vicious monster attacking me at my door? I calmly went over to HER NEIGHBORS house where the garbage was and picked up every piece, and the dog poop. I agree that I have that responsibility to clean up after my dog. The one thing I don't agree upon is someone coming to my house and screaming in my face about something I didn't know about. Is anyone out there been blessed with a psyco-neighbor?
I don't think anyone remembers the golden rule...Do unto others as you would want done unto you!
I sent them a lovely card from this site I
