With only having one car between myself and my husband at the moment, I wasn’t able to leave the house very much. I did try to take the kids outside as much as possible, but it wasn’t easy with the ridiculous amount of layers needed, and the inability to take a newborn out into the snow for very long. Everything had to be done around the littlest one’s schedule. And so we spent far too many hours inside staring out the window.
My favorite part of the "reduce, reuse, recycle" mantra is reuse. I feel clever and creative when I find new ways to use containers that hold the food and other items I buy at my grocery store. I also feel a little resourceful because I am not spending money on plastic containers from the home organization aisle. In my efforts to go green and save some dough, I have run across some very useful container repurposing ideas that will help you be a proud reuser.
For the last 10 years, Tom Durkin has been the voice of the Triple Crown on NBC. This year, he voluntarily chose to not renew his contract to announce the three most important horse races of the year. He is very open about the reason he gave up this very important announcing position. He is exhausted by the performance anxiety created by being the voice of such an important sporting event.
Spring and summer bring us many wonderful things to enjoy after a long winter. But they also bring us threats to our health. One of which is Lyme disease.
I have witnessed and have been told by many in the community that this has been a bad year for ticks. On a personal note, I was diagnosed with Lyme disease as a result of a bite from a tick I received in early April. Thankfully, I knew some of the signs and symptoms to look for and received quick and effective treatment.
