"New" Toys

I responded to an ad on Kijiji recently and brought home some 'new' friends for Ian (is it wrong that I want to play with them too?). You may be acquaintances with them yourself. What would the world be without Fisher Price Little People? These are the ultimate in green toys. I have so many fond memories of playing with these little guys. I'm happy Ian will get to share the joy (when he's older and stops putting things in his mouth!). I was lucky enough to snag both the complete sesame street playset and the tudor family house with all of the accessories. Those new fisher prices little people don't compare to these guys. They just don't make things like they used to...

Back on track.

I'm happy to report that things are getting better around here. The proof is that the cloth diapers are back in action again after several months of being MIA.

I started a new job this week. I'm managing a team again after two years and although it is somewhat daunting, it feels good! Strangely, although I now have more responsability at work I'm also being more productive at home too... Not sure what you call that phenomenon but so far so good. Granted this week was only week 1 of the new job, so who knows what things will be like once I have a full workload but I can honestly say that I'm in a good place. I love the team. They are all very nice. My walk to work is a little shorter which is nice. It means more time with Ian in the mornings and in the afternoons.

So back to our challenge. I'll have to count down how many weeks I've missed.... since mid to early August I think. We have been doing green things despite not blogging about them.

1. We got a rain barrel that is hooked up to our downspout.
2. I recently bought Ian a new toy from plan toys (wooden toys made out of organic rubberwood).
3. We brought all of our recycling (paper and cans) back from our vacation in Maine with us because we couldn't find a place to recycle our stuff there... which is pretty crazy.

There is more but I'll leave it there for now. Hope all is well with you!
