Big Celebrations Tomorrow (It’s OK to Start Early)

Dear Kid,

Happy Recycling! DearKidLoveMom.comTomorrow is a big day. It’s Clean Your Refrigerator Day and America Recycles Day.

One would hope there’s not too much recycling of the things you manage to clean out of your refrigerator.

I don’t know if we’ll get around to celebrating Clean Your Refrigerator Day. The frig needs it, that’s for sure. It’s been sending out mysterious sticky spots as invitations, but so far nothing seems to have developed limbs, so I’m guessing we can put it off a week or two if we have to. On the other hand, given everything we went through to get the darn thing, you’d think we might clean it up occasionally.

As far as recycling goes, I can’t decide if I think having a Day dedicated is good or not. On the one hand anything that promotes recycling is Good. On the other hand, needing a Day for something we should be doing all the time is frustrating.

I don’t think we have a Day dedicated to garbage; as a society, we’re pretty good at throwing things away, so we don’t need a capital “D” Day to remember to do it.

Not so much with recycling.

Which is too bad.

So tell everyone to take their cans and paper and cardboard and other recyclables and keep them out of a landfill.

At least for one day.

Who knows? It might start a habit.

Love, Mom

It’s National WHAT DAY? (Bet You Didn’t Know This)

Dear Kid,

A bend in the road is not the end of the road--unless you fail to make the turn. DearKidLoveMom.comI know it’s close to the end of the day and I am dangerously close to not having a post today. But fear not, Oh Child of Mine, I am getting this on the web before today becomes tomorrow, so all is right with the world.

Word of Warning: I’m tired, so I don’t promise coherence.

Today has been a crazy busy day. I had to apologize to the puppy (twice) for accidentally getting flour on his fur (he looked like he’d encountered about 6 large, un-melting snowflakes—but he didn’t seem a bit concerned about his decorations). And I did a bunch of stuff that would sound really boring in print, so I won’t bother you with the details. You’re welcome.

Important: November 15 is National Recycle Day. It is also Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day. I like to think there’s a connection, but the idea of recycling some of the things (and by “things” I mean science experiments) that sometimes end up in our frig is a little scary.

In honor of Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day, I took some things out the frig and then put them back. No germs were harmed in the process.

LIFE is a whim of several billion cells to be you for a while. DearKidLoveMom.comIt’s also Clevelanders Are Visiting Day. We’ve had a lovely time starting to catch up. It’s been a looong time and I am thrilled they are here. More about that tomorrow.

In other news, it’s cold. Not just chilly, but C-O-L-D. Also it’s not warm.

I think I need to go to sleep now.

You should probably recycle something.

Love you kiddo,

Love, Mom
