Green Tip Tuesday - That time of Year!

OMG! It was so cool today, literally! The tempatures this afternoon were in the low to mid 80's! For Texas that is borderline COLD! My Eli & I went outside to hang laundry and we played with the dog for a bit. After about 30 minutes our fingertips were cold, so it was time to go in.

Tomorrow is going to be even colder. We may have to wear a sweater, that is just crazy talk. But it feels like FALL!

Today's GREEN TIP is to save some energy and turn off the A/C! We have had it off since around noon. I'm sure that will save us atleast $20 bucks on the next bill. But anyways... we wanna save as much money as we can so whenever it's this temperature we turn off the A/C. I know some people aren't able to do this so how about just raising it up a degree or down depending on where you are.

A few weeks ago when we went to the Green Living Festival we were talking to someone who was talking about solar energy and she was saying that they leave their A/C at 75 and lower it to 72 at night... I hit hubs because we have it at 78 during the day and at 75 at night! haha. We laughed. Her bill was a bit higher than ours but she also said she had a two story house so yeah, they would need it cool to keep the whole house cooler. So we can't wait to get solar panels but that won't be for a few years.

Hope ya'll stay cool!

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…
