Let's see, today I will...

*throw all of the kids breakfast, lunch and dinner mess outside. That's kinda like composting right, all good for the soil and everything.

*Convince baby girl that it would rreally benefit the earth if she started using the potty instead of her diaper.

*Order in every meal. As long as the resturaunt is already cooking there's really no reason to waste energy having me do it too.

*I would say that I would skip the kids bath today but really, I wasn't going to give them one anyway.

I will not touch the huge pile of laundry that is waiting for me in the basement....
I will not go running today-I may suck up too much oxygen from the atmosphere.....
I will not dress in Aluminum Foil today....
shucks. I was so hoping to get to do those things.

Too funny! I wish I could think of something witty to add but I'm laughing too hard at yours and the other commenters' ideas!!!

paige said...

laughing out loud at you!

i opened this up & thought ( for a fleeting moment) you were going to be serious today!

ok, off to my personal tanning bed...oops, i'll save that til tomorrow HA!

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

Oh, I am all for saving Mother Earth by not cooking dinner and wearing the same clothes! Washing the dishes by hand, um, not so much...but I guess if I'm not cooking dinner, I might be able to handle it. Ha! You're a nut!! ;-)

Jen from the concrete earth friendly house said...

move on in earth mother, we probably won't even notice you are here.

J.J. said...

HAAAAAAAAAA!

Michelle@Fromhousetohome said...

You are cracking me up over here! How about just not washing the dishes at all? That would save water. You could just plop the food down on the table and the kids can eat with their hands. Save water AND your nails!

Tara said...

I will laugh at you today and exert positive energy into the universe while doing it!

Um, and Kasey...clean the toilets your self? This is not mock shock, this is genuine. Nooooooooooo!!!!
