Hello Again


It's been forever since I last posted. Lack of motivation I suppose. It was much more fun posting about getting pregnant and being pregnant. I have been keeping up with everyone else's blogs, though. I've been a grade A lurker as a matter of fact. So, what have we been up to? Here goes...

The "funk" only overcomes us occasionally these days. Trina has started playing the guitar again. I can listen to her for hours. She has the most amazing singing voice. We've both been eating healthy and Trina has been doing her yoga again. She even got a new pilates DVD that's been kicking her ass. She wants to be in even better shape the next time around. We've started several new projects around the house and yard to keep occupied. With so little that we can actually control, I guess we're just doing what we can.

We got alot accomplished for Earth Day. I was very proud of us. We took our recycling to the nearest facility which is a 30 minute drive. We went down to our local grocery who was giving away cloth grocery bags if you brought in plastic bags to recycle. We were given a Peace Lilly (thanks Haely&Troy) and purchased a Bamboo Palm, both of which are on NASA's top ten air cleaning plants list. We bought 3 recycling bins to make sorting easier so that we do a better job of collecting recyclables. I planted a vegetable garden & Trina started a "garbage can compost". We bought the cutest Earth Day gDiaper. I love it. :) I think that's it. Hmmm, seemed like we did more. Ah well, anything we do to make this a better place for our kids is a good step.

Love the picture. There's nothing more perfect than listening to your girl play guitar.

I'm jealous of the earth g-diaper! I hope they are still in stock when we need to upsize or g-diapers to the large.

Robbie said...

The med and large earth gDiapers are already sold out. :( Sorry...

Glad to see you blogging again. I didn't know you guys lived in H town. Or, were you talking about another Montrose in your comment on my blog? I'm feeling a little guilty that we didn't do anything for earth day now. : (

We could have passed each other on the street. I'm the angry looking chubby, curly haired dyke. Wait..there's a lot of those. : )
