Today the twins and I didn’t leave the house all day except to go down to the bus stop to pick up the big boys. Normally we would walk to the bus stop but we drove so that after pick up we could continue down to Old Silver Beach where we were assured of finding some quick trash to pick up.
H helped me walk one edge of the front parking lot and collect a plastic bag full. I feel kinda guilty about having to drive somewhere just to pick up trash. It feels better if you’re already out and you just pick up the trash in the course of your travels. One has to consider the amount of emissions used to drive a half mile to the beach and back just to pick up trash although, as a person who could spend weeks on end holed up in their house – I guess I should have thought of that before I made this resolution.
