I don't always recycle.
Do you hate me?
Sometimes when I'm cooking and using lots of cans, like a soup that uses several cans of beans, I toss them in the sink with the good intention of rinsing them out and popping them in the recycling when I'm done with all my meal making. The problem is, when the sink is also full of dishes and the counters are cluttered, rinsing the cans seems like an avoidable portion of the work. Just toss them in the garbage under the sink and move on.
Surely it cuts a good 1.75 minutes out of my cleaning time!
And other days, Jack finds some jar or jug that I've put in the bin particularly interesting and pulls it out to play with it (which is why I must throughly rinse all containers that will eventually be recycled). After I have tripped over his favored juice bottle or tuna tin about three hundred and sixty two times, I am so tired of seeing it that I hide it from Jack... in the garbage can.
Does that make me a bad person.
Or more specifically, does that mean I have to hide myself in shame from all the faithful recyclers that inhabit the great Northwest?
I hope not.
I have another confession that might get me kicked out of my home state.
I don't really like soy milk.
What is the deal with soy anyway, is it good for you or not? I hear conflicting messages and I am confused.
Same with dairy.
And just about every other food group.
Someone somewhere always has a reason that some food is no good for the human race.
Until I get straight answers I'll just keep eating what I love.
And I'll keep not liking soy milk.
I can handle it on my cereal. But it certainly doesn't cut it in my coffee and please, please don't ask me to drink it straight.
But milk seems to make both of my babies gassy, as well as my darling man...
...who is in Mexico
building a house
and who I was bravely living without
until he called me
and I was reminded of how very much I adore him
and now I keep wishing
he would come home and tuck me in,
he will not be back in The States
for another two days.
Instead of filling my fridge with multiple milk products I just go with the gang and have soy when I want cereal. But frankly, it isn't really cutting it for me. I am trying to decide if it is worth it to have Joey squirm and fuss after I drink it and therefore he drinks it... and when I think about that, I realize that I'll just have to make do for a while.
Oh the sacrifices we mothers make!
We've tried Almond, Rice and "Grain Drink" in addition to the soy. Not a single one of them are delicious, but because soy is questionable I thought I should at least give them a go. Soy by far is the least objectionable... but seriously... is soy a yey or nay these days?
