What I'm doing to be...

I guess I’m now a soccer mom…

I am now a soccer mom. It’s almost a law where I live, “All children must play soccer” or else! It must be a fun sport or something. I was never good at it but my husband was. I saw the commercial above and decided it was worth posting. Soccer and recycling united! I hope you enjoy this Return-it soccer commercial.

My oldest son seems to be enjoying soccer. We will see about that when this surprisingly nice weather turns on us. Before the season he asked us for a helmet…

I can’t believe it’s still sunny and warm into October. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We went to my husband’s family for dinner last night (thanks Sarah) and put on a dinner for my family tonight. For the first time we Skyped our out-of-town family. That was great. I really miss them. Why can’t all of our family just live here?

We tried to be less wasteful this Thanksgiving. Cloth napkins instead of paper… that kinda thing. I did break down and used some of my parents tinfoil to tent the stuffing (dressing). It’s been years since I’ve used tinfoil. I plan on rinsing it and recycling it.

I have lots to be thankful for. Great family, friends, kids, husband and my health. I am very lucky.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

About stephanieough

Wife, mom, concerned citizen of the earth. Striving towards intentional living rather than blindly following. Former Education Specialist for a corporation, I have now taken a step back to spend time with my family and work closer to home. Hoping to reduce our waste through refusing, reducing and reusing so that we will not have to recycle as much. Also, I love to explore zero-waste fast food and take pictures of my sucesses. I'm a fan of British comedies like Red Dwarf and Black Adder, Kevin Smith and his movies, Asian food, documentaries, biographies and going to Las Vegas on vacation. If someone told me I could only listen to the Beatles for the rest of my life I would die happy.
