Hello all. So I've kinda been going on this green kick. It's not a bad thing it just kinda hit me all at once. I've been trying to make an effort to not be so wasteful, my most successful method being using my reusable shopping bags when I go out. This is good on two counts. Not only does it help the environment, but it also keeps me from getting too crazy with what I buy. It's a win-win really. I've also talked to my apartment complex about getting recycling bins for the newspapers out by the mailbox, and they said they could call the garbage company and see if they can't add them. It always bothers me on those days because the garbage cans are overflowing with paper that could so easily be recycled...it's just a waste. Also, now having worked at Michael's I realize that there is a lot of stuff they do that's incredibly wasteful. I think I signed something when I hired saying I wouldn't tell about "inner workings," but I am just going to say that I'm going to call the head office and see if there's anything I could possibly do to get them to recycle as well. I'm sure it's true of most corporations, but you know, one step at a time here lol. Lastly on the "green" note, I had the best salad ever today. Not really anything to do with the environment, but pretty darn tasty! And...you know, green. :)
I actually had a pretty remarkable day today. Out of nowhere solution to my rent problem for this month appeared. I also found out that I have a couple hundred spare dollars that I knew nothing about, which is kind of what I needed as a cushion really. I used a smidge of it to buy some frames today (on sale!) so I can maybe sell some prints of photos I've taken to make some extra cash. Cross your fingers for me that this works. Also, and I had forgotten about this entirely (sorry Jess!), I'm going to try to get my VitaMark stuff going here. Of all places, Vegas should have some folks that would want good, healthy products. If anyone out there on the interwebs is curious about the VitaMark stuff, please feel free to contact me. I personally stand behind the products...I love the cookies and the limu and really feel super when I eat them. I've been taking the vitamins the last week and I'm starting to feel a little better. At least like getting out of the house! It's sad I need a kick in the butt to leave the house, but the current (and often instantaneous) ups and downs I've been having have been leaving me emotionally drained and not wanting to go out and really do anything. Now all of this sudden miraculous good fortune does NOT mean that I'm sitting pretty, it just means I've - yet again - scrapped by on the fish and loaves theory. However, I'm confident in the fact that if I put faith in the fact I'll be provided for that I will be. It continually works for me, and it's all I have going right now. So here's hopin!
