With today being all about green, "St. Patrick's Day", I have been thinking. What have we done to become for "green" friendly? Well I have changed almost all of my lightbulbs in the house to the new flourescent kind. I try to plan my days so that if I have to run errands I can get them done at one time to help save on gas. I notice at the grocery store yesterday that Clorox has come out with new "green" cleaners. I think that I will start giving them a try when I start running out.

Not only with trying to be more green friendly we are all trying to save money too. The government does not want to admit that we are in a recession, but what else would you call it? Prices of everything is going up, but our pay is staying the sames. I paid $3.42 for gas yesterday and it took $40.00 to fill up my little car. That is rediculous! I was going to get a gallon of milk when I was in K-Mart the other day just to save a stop at the grocery store, but it was $4.29 a gallon! Now I hear on the news that our personal property taxes will be going up again to help the schools. Then we have a presidential election this year that is really scaring me! We have a person who does not want to salute our flag or say our pledge of allegiance. We have another person whose husband was in the oval office for 8 years and did not do a good job. We have a republican (which is how I "usually" vote) that I feel I couldn't trust even if I could throw him. So what is a person to do. Who is a person supposed to vote for? All I hear is that "America needs a change" well tell me what you are going to do to change it!

Well so now let's talk about homeschooling. It is fun :) It only takes about 3 hours a day. Cody is like a sponge! The only thing that he even wants to watch on tv now is the history channel or discovery channel. He is really excited about our trip to Washington DC. We all are! And the fun thing is that we can use this trip as school work :)

And last but not least look at the new pictures of Dominick. It is so hard to believe that he will be a year old next week...
