Sorry I haven’t posted a while. I’m just trying to deal with this whole nausea (that’s as far as I got before having to run to the toilet to eject my oatmeal. I’ll try again now) thing. Looking at the computer doesn’t make it any better, so I don’t get on very often.
As far as no garbage goes, I only have 5 more days to go until I’ve reached my goal of 31 days in a row. I have to tell you I’m looking forward to buying some soda crackers and may be some flannel pajamas.
I have reached my recycling limit. I thought I was going to be well under, but then I got pregnant. The bin is now filled with ginger ale cans and bottles. I never did find a store near by that had it in the fountain.
On Friday, we walked to the subway to avoid taking the bus (uggggh bus) and we met up with Maureen (my sister), Andrew(her husband) and a big group of friends at Pauper’s Pub for Andrews birthday. The waiter at Paupers was amazing about the no garbage project and came back to ask questions, like “is a piece of lime OK?”, “should I bring you cutlery without the napkins?” before bringing us anything. He wasn’t teasing us either, he was sincere! It was great. A waitress came to our table and stood in front of me for a few minutes. Finally she said ” I hear you are making no garbage and I want to know about it”. So I talked to her about the project and she seemed genuinely interested. Then I managed to eat a whole tasty meal ( a Brazilian salad with pumpkin seeds and mustard dressing) and drink a cranberry juice and it stayed down! It was a great night. I felt good for about 5 hours!!!! It was a great garbage free and puke free outing! Hooorah!
