It’s been three years since I posted… THREE YEARS! That’s crazy, right? Right… until you realize that in that time I moved houses and cities (twice), changed jobs and had a kid. Yup, made another human – that’s worth forgetting to blog for a while, right?
But the time for excuses is over. My youngest is two so I’m starting to emerge from the baby-focused fog. We’ve been in our house for three years, which is long enough to realize that our century home will never be “finished”, and we should just get on with our lives. And while I never feel like I have any “spare” time, neither does anyone else and they manage to run marathons, so really I should be able to carve out a few minutes to write a post!
For those who followed my daily green pledge challenge that was the catalyst for this blog, I won’t be starting that up again. I will keep sharing the green things I do in my life to try and save the world – one tiny, lazy green step at a time. I don’t have time to source all my food within 100 miles, but I do have time to create a more veggie-based meal plan for my family, and I’ll share it. I don’t have the energy to research all the different ingredients in all the materials of food containers I could send my kids lunch in, but I can shop at our local eco store and tell you about the amazing reusable bags I find.
I’m also probably going to vent about parenting sometimes, because really it dominates so much of my brain! I’m doing my best to raise tiny earth stewards, and so far it seems to be working. My oldest recently yelled at me that I was “wasting water and being mean to the planet”… I was filling the sink to wash dishes. So maybe I will do a green pledge – to stop washing dishes because it’s apparently bad for the earth. 🙂
Here’s hoping you enjoy my return to the blogging world… I promise not to wait three years before I post again!
