Ok so here are a few crumbs I have collected this morning as I have speed cleaned my house. Why I'm in a hurry, I have no idea because I have pretty much nada to do for the rest of the day.
I guess I could sew some. I have some lunch bags to make. See, I'm taking (and issuing) a zero waste lunch challenge. Can you pack lunch for your children (and yourself) this coming school year without using things that have to be thrown away? My pal Fer the wonder seamstress shared a link with me way back in April for nylon reusable sandwich bags. I'm going to try this. I think if I combine the nylon lunch bags and the refillable juice box shaped water bottles I should be REALLY close to the zero waste lunch. My only glitch is the daily yogurt and cheese stick.
And speaking of going back to school...We are only 3 weeks away! Can I just tell you how stoked my kids are? Tuck is crossing off days on the calendar to count down. Mo is just ready to see her friends again. And Munch? She is ready for some peace and quiet. I'm ready for the grocery bill to drop again. Holy Smokes!! These kids have been vacuum cleaners this summer! And they've grown about two feet collectively.
Which leads us to the concept of "new." Remember way back when I chopped off all my hair in a fit of "I'm so sick of this being in my face!"? Yeah well, now I'm ready for the bangs to grow back out because they are in my face. I have that dorky split down the middle flipped up thing going on and it's driving me bajonkers.
By the way, it looks like the other Max will not be joining us after all. I believe that he has found a new home without our help so I may have dodged a bullet there. The kids have joined Daddy's dog campaign though so I have probably already been out voted. I might as well start looking at breeds I will tolerate.
Hey, thanks for letting me brain dump. I'm sure you're a bit dizzy from all of that and wondering how it all fits together and I'll just let you know...It doesn't! Have a great day!
(By the way, I just thought the picture was really neat! No political commentary or deep meaning - although I'm sure I could come up with one if I thought on it.)
