I have been in the midst of the everlasting cold. Things have still been happening in the house though.
The box of kitchen stuff went to Value Village finally. All of our Christmas things were evaluated, organized and a box of things were brought to the local Bibles for Missions thrift store. Some bows, tree garland and extra ornaments were part of what left.
Yesterday I took my husband for Laser Eye Surgery. He is recovering well. We figure it’ll save us money in the long run. His glasses will be dropped off for donation. No more having to buy glasses for him but we still have mine to deal with. I swear it’s about $700 every two years for my glasses. So hopefully it will be my turn soon enough. Just imagine how many pairs of glasses and contacts could be saved from the landfill if more people had the procedure.
Another cool thing that has happened is that our town is now accepting small appliances for recycling. Everything from toasters, vacuums and electric toothbrushes can now be diverted from the landfill. I need to drop some stuff off there soon including a small broom vac that broke so fast and has been enjoying life in our closet every since. My oldest sons school has a cellphone and battery recycling box so I will be taking advantage of that too. Nobody wants an old cellphone these days. Everyone needs the newest high-tech devices.
I hope my cold will finally leave me. It has been 18 days already. This is ridiculous!
