The green police

I have been enjoying life and enjoying baby and just had no time or inclination to blog lately. I made it out for a trail run on Saturday and a short bike ride on Sunday so I'm feeling active again which feels great!

I didn't get to watch much of the Super Bowl but there was one ad that hit home with me: the green police ad. My husband is constantly pulling things out of the garbage can and lecturing me about what can be recycled. Clothing price tags are a big one with him and cause for an eye roll from me. He does have a good reason for it, other than the environment, it is his profession to find ways to reduce waste, but living with the green police is surreal. He even lectures our guests when they come over. It almost makes us hippies which is horrifying to me!

If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.............................................

Amen, sister! It never occurred to me to recycle clothing tags until I found my better half fishing them out of the garbage and tsk-tsk-ing me! Ah well, I file it under the "he makes me a better person" category. I'll cop to being a tree-hugger, but what I pay for jeans pretty much excludes me from being a hippie (with the possible exception of the Trustafarian subgroup, which I also don't qualify for).
