Recycle or what?

I'm trying to use recycled bags as much as possible, but occasionally I'll take a plastic bag for pet waste needs or bin liners. They do come in handy. My mom recently bought me one of these. Very stylish and handy. I love it.

A lot of thoughts are recycled in my head about things like work, motherhood, and what to do to celebrate my birthday. Go to a museum? Swim in the ocean? Get a pedicure? Buy yarn? I'm turning 34. I said something out loud to Lars the other day that had been tumbling around in my head. It went something like this. "Maybe it's best to wait 5 years and get the work done on the house and then look at our options about having kids." The reality is, I don't have the funds to adopt or go through medical treatments right now. More importantly would be keeping warm this winter, and working on the house to make it more weather-tight and also homey. So there it is. I have had a cocktail each night during this work week. I'm not sure if it is out of defeat or the sheer enjoyment of it.

As far as the bags go, I think if you had x number for shopping sometimes you will go over and get plastic bags, in my case that would still be plenty for what I use around the house as trash can liners etc.

As far as motherhood goes, deciding when to take the plunge is difficult. I am not sure I would have ever done it. Zach was a surprise, Max was planned.
