    That's the thing, I don't want her sending me voicemails because she will blow my phone up with them. I can block her texts and calling but unfortunately I can't the VM's. It shouldn't be too much of a hassle, I've already let people know I would be doing it.

    They are very well done, but it’s kinda sad all the crap we litter everywhere that never goes away.

    I agree is sad and crazy how much gets littered and waisted.. I’m not one of the crazy you must recycle everything and absolutely everything you buy must be reusable or recyclable. But as I’ve been recycling for over 30 years (my parents started us early) even when you had to check every bottle and can or container to get it in the right bin ( it use to be crazy hard to recycle but we still did what we could)
    Now that you can mix all recyclables in one bin there is not really any reason not to.
    As a family and to really make a point to the kiddos. Before anything gets thrown in our trash we break off or remove or separate anything that can be recycled. Takes maybe a extra 5-10 minutes max per week. But we end up with normally 5-6 kitchen trash bags full each week on recycling day :) It’s all about doing what is practical when time and situation does allow( were not rummaging through restaurant trash cans and yelling at other customers to recycle their trash like I have witnessed before...) It does make a difference IMO.

    As with other pollution, I’m sure third world countries and places like China and India are much larger offenders than we are.

    We do similar around our house. For a family of 7 we only generate 1, sometimes 2, bags of trash each week. The trash can is maybe 1/4 full on trash day. The recycling bin, however, is always packed. Anything organic gets composted.

    Very nice. Excited for ya.

    Romulus is a good central location. It's quite a bit west of the bad areas, real close to the airport (you'll get use to jet traffic pretty quickly if you've not lived close to airports before ) and it's right at a major junction...275 and 94...East on 94 takes you into downtown, west takes you to Ann Arbor...275 North takes you through a lot of nice areas and some very nice areas like Novi, south takes you to Monroe or Ohio if want to come experience a real college football team ;)

    I am! I got in late morning today, after a hellish day yesterday.. I'll tell later. My cousin has been more than welcoming and has gone out of her way to make me comfortable. It's going to be a busy week though.. Thanks for asking

    That’s awesome to hear! Sometimes moving away from “Home” and starting over is the best thing we can do for ourselves!

    When we talk about being healthy enough for a survival situation I think the number one health aspects everyone forgets is dental. From personal experience fixing dental issues can be long and painful and expensive...
    If you don’t take care of your teeth I recommend starting Now!!

    That said four hours in the dental chair for me tomorrow... (I take care of my teeth.. A car accident got mine... )

    Man I don't envy you.. Good luck today with that! I got dentures about 15 years ago. Soft teeth run in the family I guess and I just found that out.

    Good morning from Romulus Michigan! :p
    It's weird living not only in a suburb, but in a house with my own room, after 6 years of living the motel life. I truly am blessed to have this wonderful family.
