I am SUPPOSED to be helping the Cub Scouts plant around a community building for a service project in honor of Earth Day with Justin right now... Um. He FIRED me and brought Daddy with instead!! :( Dude. I've been one-upped.
BUT! Bonus, here. I am eating Dove Irresistibly Raspberry ice cream and getting ready to clean my van (SCARY in there!).

The packing away of the strollers and crib will be a dark, dark day in my household... But not for a LONG time, yet. I MEAN IT this time. Sigh... the circle of life... the cycles that continue, change, continue, change...
Happy Earth Day weekend! Make a difference! We are doing great recycling and have lots of seeds planted for our first crop of veggies! Wish us luck. I also vow to hold out on the air conditioning as long as possible this summer, as another way to save a few buckets of coal and money!
Now, go plant a tree or something! It's GORGEOUS out!
