So after a good cry and many appletinis last night, I woke up feeling a little better. Some days you just need to really feel all that negative stuff, let it wash over you, envelope you, tear you down ..... so that you can get back up and start fresh. Today I'm starting fresh.
RQ is still back and forth whether the rumor I spoke of in the last post is true or not. There's so much conflicting info out there right now. Some agencies saying one thing, some saying the other. Who knows really? I'm choosing to hang on to a little sliver of hope given to me today by the princess in paradise. Her agency is saying things are just the same as they've always been AND they're supposedly expecting a package tomorrow. And hopefully inside that package will be Travel Approvals. I'm hoping with every ounce of my being that's whats coming for her... and I have a lot of ounces. LOL!
In honor of Earth Day last week I made a commitment to be a little greener. Did y'all see O*prah when she showed the garbage heap out in the ocean that's twice the size of Texas? Go ahead and click on that link. Watch the videos. It's heartbreaking. I sat there looking at that and just cried. This is what we're doing to our own planet. The planet my daughter will inherit. Not to mention how it effects us right now. Listen to the scientist in the 2nd video describe how toxic that stuff is and how every person on the planet is carrying some in their bodies now. (Just a warning the "f" bomb is dropped a few times on the 2nd video.)
This is scary stuff. So right then and there I decided I needed to make more of an effort to recycle. And I vowed to stop buying bottled water. For anyone who knows me, that's huge. I love Pr-opel. From now on little mix in packets ONLY! So to help ease myself into this "no water in packaged plastic" transition I purchased an aluminum water bottle. In hot pink, of course.
I already have some reusable grocery bags. If I could just remember to take them inside the store with me EVERY time. Instead of forgetting them in the car. I'm about 50-50 odds right now. But I think seeing those birds stuck in plastic bags will help me remember. The damage we have done to our planet is so very sad. Now is the time to act. I'm doing my part and I'll continue to make improvements in my lifestyle to work towards being a greener human. I hope everyone will.
