In honor of Earth Day 2010

I may have:

let my car idle in the garage to warm up
left the water running while I brushed my teeth
took an extra hot, long shower so I could shave my legs
left the refrigerator door wide open while I wandered around gathering my lunch
let the TV and lights stay on while I went to the gym

All before 8:00am this morning.  I am off to a good start. 

I think when I get home, I'll make sure the TV is on simply for background noise, make sure all the lights are on, start the dishwasher half full and do a couple of mini loads of laundry.
And then, purely for the entertainment value - I will set up Al Gore's face on my dartboard and practice my hat tricks!

Never accuse me of not being a team playah!

Ha Ha - True that true that!

I always feel so guilty on Earth Day - I am in hiding but I DID make 400 Worm in the Dirt Pudding cups for an elementary school this morning (in plastic cups ha ha) in honor of Earth Day so that has got to count for something!

My kids support earth day by leaving the refridgerator door open about 5 hours a day.

We do what we can for the world.

But I'm not gonna be the one to take short cold showers...I HAVE to draw the line Somewhere!!!!

All but the T.V. for background noise happen every day at this non earth friendly locale. Oh wait, who gets to shower and shave every day? Not this Mom!(TMI?)

At least I can applaud the Pin The Dart On Gore's Face part!

The rest....I just think of Sissy's earth and hope it's still around for her and her grandkids to enjoy together.
