Slippery Slope

Day 80: Dec. 3, 2013

I have something to say. Should I say it loudly or softly? Either way, its the same.

ok, here goes: (loudly)


Aww, damn.

I am a failure. I had zero remorse while saying the words, "I need a bag." I looked at the man, thought, oh, I'm writing a blog about not buying grocery bags and coffee cups, then I said, "I need a bag."

Almost every day, at some point during the day, I think, "I'm not going to post today. I'm just going to let it slide, no one will care or notice, including me." This happened as soon as I came back to it after the two week break.

Then it occurred to me: this is supposed to happen.  The virtue lies in the daily application of effort! And everyday effort is A GRIND (hee hee.) And requires discipline.  So, I post.

But not without wanting SO badly to digress. To fail! And so I bought a grocery bag.  No excuses, (although I have a really good one, I swear.) I will work hard not to buy another one.

Coffee: No cups bought

Cups and Bags Challenge:  We did it!! We've reached 100 at least! I will be sending $100 to Bring Recycling today.  Thanks everyone for using reusable cups as much as your life would allow. Stay tuned for the next challenge to come in a couple of weeks.
