Oh y’all. I had plans. We were going to go to the park, we were going to have fun, we were going to pick up a bit.

We were NOT going to get RSV, it was NOT going to rain and tornado, Scout was NOT going to get sick, I was NOT going to feel like I was dying …


Then I thought, you know, I don’t really see that much trash around here, it’s probably pretty clean.

When we went to the store yesterday, I decided to count the pieces of trash I saw between our house, up the street to the park.?Ǭ† It wasn’t much. I could keep track …

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 ….. OMWTF trash scattered EVERYWHERE in a bush …

and we were 4 houses from home.


So, as part of my Lent a Day, I *will* get out and take care of some of this trash. At least now I’ve actually opened my eyes and SEEN it, admitting you have a problem is the first step, right?


and for fun, here is a reprint of my post from Blog Action Day:
