Hey, how are things?

Things are good. Rene and I are getting along fantastically(for the most part). My hair looks good, especially after I got it cut a few days ago. I've managed to keep myself from wasting too much(I wish I could say the same for Rene, but his friend is here from out of town and his friend is terrible and doesn't respect anything that I'm doing(including recycling and locking the door when he leaves)). I'm happy. Things a good.

There is one thing that isn't good.

I should be working.

I'm not.

I'm supposed to "start" working tomorrow, and I will be, but I haven't told my boss that I am looking for another job as well. I won't lie, I feel terrible about it, but what can you do really. I'm hoping I get this other job I applied for, it's closer to home so I could walk, and it's working at a pub, so I know my hours will closely match Renes' which will help lots.

So I'm headed into town tomorrow(Job permitting) to go to the fabric store for some fabrics. I want to make my own "Meat bags" You know the little plastic bag that they insist on wrapping your freshly bought chicken, beef and pork in at the store so that it doesn't contaminate your other food. I'm hoping to find something to make my own out of. And I have to finish making a bunch of produce bags for my mum who bought tons of fabric for it last year and I'm a lazy sac and have just let it all sit there for the past 12 months or so.

Anyways I feel like my time on the internet is up for now. I have to go home.

A little update

I'm currently moving into with my boyfriend, things are going okay, we are about ready to kill each other on some matters, but we get over it pretty quickly, and we are both pretty forgiving of each other(He is extremely forgiving to me and I love him for it)

The thing that is kinda lame about our situation, is that I'm moving into his place, because his roommate has left the city, but he left so suddenly that he hadn't even packed up his stuff, so Rene and I have been doing that, and let me tell you, this is not one roommate I could have ever even hoped to have lived with, the whole place was disgusting, Rene and I hadn't really noticed before because we spent most of our time at my parents house(Yeah I know, I still lived with my family, I'm lame, I know I know) We've been cleaning for a week and I still haven't even gotten anywhere near cleaning the bathroom. Ugh.

What has been really nice is that Rene lets me be as earth friendly as I want, meaning during this whole cleaning attack, we haven't used a single chemical, and we have recycled just about everything. I just have to find a way to get the clog out of the bathroom sink, I'm going to try the baking soda and vinegar treatment, if that doesn't work.... I dunno what I'm gonna do yet.

Anyways, so about me and myself, I haven't shampooed my hair for, 9 days now. and I personally thing my hair is looking good, the only thing is, my hair is very prone to getting knotted up, especially when it's this long(Shoulder length, I like my locks short) So I do fight it a little bit in the shower, but that's fine, I can live with that. I've only been using baking soda every second day, and have been using vinegar everyday, seems to be working out, I'm happy so far, the best part is no one has said anything like "Man, you look like you need a shower." so I know I can't look too bad.

My adventure with the Diva cup went a lot better than some of the horror stories I read.

I've donated tons of stuff to the local hospital axillary thrift store, since I'm moving out and all(again) I'm getting rid of as much of my clutter as I possibly can. I think I'm doing a good job, I know I'm saving alot of stuff I really could do without, but....... sometimes I just like to hold onto memories.

Anyways I have to pack up a few more things so i can go back to my house(I still haven't moved my internet up to Rene's place... I'm so lazy)

My efforts in greening myself, and making myself healthier

For the past few months I have been reading LOTS of peoples efforts at being greener, healthier, and more frugal. I like to think I'm a pretty open person, I am up for the trying anything once, so all of the blogs and just plain LISTS of things people can and have done to better themselves and their surroundings I've become inspired to change myself and my surroundings. So I'm making a list of things I Do, Am trying and want to try.


Recycle(Doesn't everyone and their dog do that now though?)
Try to buy locally or organically
Eating more "nourishing foods"


The Diva Cup(And so far I love it... lots, it's never ever been this effortless and there is no waste)
To get rid of things I don't need to use
To not use shampoo


Stop using unneeded paper products(Paper towel, and maybe even *gasps* toilet paper(If I can man up enough))
Start making alot of my own stuff(Foods, soaps, whatever I can really)

I guess that's it for now since I acutally started writing this post a few days ago and I just kinda want to get it out there.

I will be a blogger

I have in fact officially decided that I am going to start blogging.

What will I be blogging about? Mostly my efforts in becoming more frugal, healthy, and a bit of an environment junkie.
