Don’t be shy! Let’s get it out in the open and help one another surmount these obstacles. Come on, everyone join in! I know there are lots of you out there that never comment (grr), so now is the time to enter the discussion – just one thing is all!
Ok, here are mine. I have three. And they’re difficult to admit. Here goes…
What’s The Most Difficult Thing For Me To Change?
Cooking. Gasp. I know! I’m good at it, and occasionally I enjoy it, but overall? Not my favorite thing. Pretty much all the recipes I post here are quick and easy, because I am so busy doing other things that I have a tough time spending 2 hours cooking dinner. But I’m learning more and more recipes of the quick yet splendid variety. And I’m very much enjoying the fact that my husband does like cooking and is very good at it (counting my lucky stars!). But if you have any more quick and easy recipes that use seasonal food, I’d LOVE to hear them!
We tried dirt from the yard, and then composting the remains in our non-food garden. But there were bugs in the house, the dirt smelled, and now we live in an apartment so we can’t do it anymore. We tried the recycled newsprint options. But Raisin hated it, it ended up everywhere because she kicked it around, and we had to change it way too often. We’re wary of the corn and wheat products because they would use valuable food (and land and pesticides) for our cat’s poop. Seems wrong somehow.
So we’ve been using… clay. Without any additives or chemicals or anything, and we have found ways to extend its use. But clay that is mined and not so great for the environment in several different ways. Sigh. Any suggestions? I’m all ears!!
Debt. School debt. Lots of it. I fell into the student trap, and accrued more debt than I should have. I am working hard volunteering (in community organizations and this blog!), and I’m starting a new business that will eventually make money. Basically, I spend my time doing good things for the world at the expense of my private debt. Put that way, it doesn’t sound so bad. But the debt does hang over my head, and it makes us more vulnerable in the current economy.
There. I said it. Big Sigh.
Time to be honest so that we can help one another. Everyone, please help and respect one other, as we’re all making ourselves vulnerable here.
Ok, One… Two… Three… Lay it on the line!
