Don't Call it a Comeback

The little girl in action
Well, remember when I took November off from blogging...
And then December...
And then January...

I have be wracking my brain trying to figure out what happened that I have absolutely no time to write.  The answer was right in front of me.  Well, it was in front of me, but now it's in the living room.  And now the kitchen.  Wait, it's moving into the bathroom and getting in the cabinets.

Everything went to pieces when Phoebe started walking.

In November when I took a few weeks off from writing because I had gotten a lot of work, I was waving goodbye to my daughter to leave for the day and out of nowhere she stood.  Just like that.  Not holding on to anything.  The next day she took a few tentative steps, and from there on out our lives have been totally different.  We have become those parents that you feel sorry for at backyard barbecues and restaurants; chasing their kids around and keeping them out of trouble while everyone else drinks wine and has a great time.

A few months into the walking (and now running) we are starting to get a handle on it and I'm back to making the blog a priority!  We are as green as ever and I have tons of new thought and questions I would love to share with everyone.

So I hope the handful of you that liked reading this are still out there!  Thanks for reading...
And I PROMISE I will be back soon with more!

totally depressing environmental fact:
does your kid wear those shoes that light up when they walk?  if so, it is illegal to throw them away.  you must take them to a place that disposes of batteries or electronics.  the batteries in the shoes can contaminate a landfill.  i guess nothing can be fun.

totally inspiring environmental tip:
just because there is not a recycling symbol in your trash, doesn't mean it can't be recycled.  aluminum cans, glass and Hershey's Kiss wrappers are all things that can be recycled with no label to indicate so.  for a full list of what can be recycled in your area go to
