Cool Idea

Todd and I have really been recycling like crazy this year, and it is amazing how much we have reduced the amount of crap in the trash. I get absolutely giddy when I fill up my composting bin and take it out and dump it on the pile. I know. Glamorous and exciting life I […]

I keep on thinking we should cancel the whole Christmas season, what with all the extra work it creates, but I don’t really mean it.
