Going Green

So lately, I’ve been feeling like I need to be more conscious of making environmentally sound choices. Hence our inability to settle on a new car and the two bags I have cluttering the kitchen table.. one filled with old batteries to take back to Whole Foods and the other with unused cat medicine that I’m afraid to put in the trash lest it cause birth defects in the crab population (you know I love crab!). So anyway, I read somewhere that polident is an effective toilet bowl cleaner so I tried that.. it works ok, but it’s more of like a breath mint. So I look at Trader Joe’s but they only have dish detergent and paper towels. I check target but Method doesn’t have anything. So I finally get back out to Whole Foods to try Seventh Generation’s product. Well I haven’t tried it yet, but that’s not important. What is important is that the Post did a piece about just this very same thing in the paper today:

Looks like I wasted my money but I’ll give it a whirl all the same. So I’m curious about her ratios on using vinegar and baking soda in the toilet. The article made me want to go dig out my Haley’s Hints books but I figure I’ll just wait it out. Pledge time is just around the corner.

The for sale sign next door was down for almost two weeks but sadly it’s back up again. We’re still waiting to see what pans out there. Meanwhile I’m frickin starving. Dinner was delicious and therefore sadly inadequate to satisfy me. Even though I commissioned Ben to make me some popcorn (my arguments: why should I suffer just because I don’t have time to watch a movie AND the parts on that popcorn trolley have to stay lubricated) I still feel the need to nibble. The question is… a brownie or a piece of chocolate… and then what do I wash it down with? Grape juice, wine, milk, or coffee?? That’s like a thousand possible combinations and so I’ll sit here wasting time until I figure it out. I’ll just sit and stare at this pile of articles while they mock me because of my indecision.
