It’s amazing what you can randomly learn about people. For instance, this morning I learned something about a coworker that was utterly romantical. As often happens, I get asked when I’m going to get married – Josh and I have been dating almost two years – I tell them it’ll happen eventually. Anyway, a male coworker happened to come into the breakroom and mentioned that he didn’t propose until he and his wife had been dating for six years, but that’s because (and here’s the gushy part) they had started dating when she was only 14. They were each other’s first love and then he pulled out the very worn photo of their prom picture from 1988 that he keeps in his wallet. How sweet is that? It’s the little things that bring me joy and hearing stories like this is one of those.
Happy Earth Day!
I try to do what I can when it comes to taking care of the earth, but I have a long way to go. Ultimately I think it would be great to get a Green home (aside from helping the environment you’d save on utility bills), but in the meantime I try to do little things like using Compact Fluorescent bulbs, recycling, using Green cleaning products, trying to conserve water – need to buy some new water efficient fixtures, like a showerhead and screw-in aerators that I found for $5, using reusable bags for shopping (when I remember them – I hang them on the doorknob, you’d think I would notice that and grab them before I leave!) :p In honor of Earth Day, though, I thought I’d look for some good Green Sites and articles to help in the process.
