    Yo Momma

    I heart our Earth. Really, I do. I can't imagine what aliens must deal with on those other planets. We have it pretty easy here, for the most part. And in honor of Earth Day, I give you ways I help our Mother Earth have an easier time dealing with all us humans dissing her.

    I recycle. This is one of a set of two matching trash cans. But one is designated Recycle Only, unless you're my mom, then you can throw whatever you want in there, because you're here, and I don't care if you mess up my recycling mojo, as long as you're here.

    I heart rainbows. Very nice of Mother Earth and Mother Nature to collaborate on this effort to give us a short glimpse of beauty.

    And I have reusable grocery bags. And I use them. I was tempted to take them to the mall with me on Saturday to forgo the department store plastics, but I forgot. What can I say? I'm lucky I make it there with all the children, let alone reusables. But it's the thought that counts, right?

    Anyway, thanks again, Mother Earth. Keep up the good work.

    You are so good. I recycle but haven't quite gotten around to getting the reusable bags.

    Youre good, you even recycle your pics, those were taken at the old house/neighborhood.

    My kids asked me what Earth day was this morning, and I said well maybe we could just think about planting a tree or something. Carter asked if all the green talk will go away after Earth Day? I suck at being earth friendly. Oh well.

    Laura- I DO recycle my pics, I'm that good.

    Jill, I'm shocked. With the garden and living in the desert, I thought for sure your kids would be the "greenest" of us all!

    Kel- Don't get too down on yourself, I've only used my reusable bags a few times. Now that I have my groceries delivered, ahem, they come in boxes, which are of course reused.

    Well, I am the worst of all. I only knew that it was earth day because QVC had a special Morning Show this morning. What can I say!! But I do recycle and so does your Dad. He burns everything!!!!!!!!!!
