Today is the Day!

The ordinance to Ban Plastic Bags is and should be in effect. I attended the Commissioner's Meeting yesterday evening and heard the Mayor and other officers talk about how much they support and see the positive effects that it will have on the City of Brownsville. There is also lots of families testing out a curb-side recycling program, which I wish everyone had the opportunity to have in their own city, and I plan on keeping myself updated to see how that goes.

I also got to meet Rose Timmer (The Bag Monster) and introduce her to my family. I seriously can't wait to see what we can accomplish this year now that the Plastic Bag Ban has been resolved. And yes, you read right, Rose was The Bag Monster. I applaud her guts and her costume ((that might be our family costumes next year)).

There was also talk about how beautiful Brownsville use to be. Growing up we only visited Brownsville during our vacation time or for a special occasions and it seemed like every time we went there was construction being done somewhere. It's a shame that the generation that has been elected now has let it get this bad.

I hope you enjoy the photos and the small video. Excuse the lighting and the traffic. And CORRECTION the address to my blog is :p And yes, that is a reusable bag!

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
