Angel Vs. Devil

I have been a very bad blogger lately, but it's mostly due to the fact that I have been ridiculously busy for about two weeks now. And when I'm busy, not only does my desire to blog go out the window, but so does my desire to be green.

It's not that I don't want to be green, really. It's that the devil on my shoulder starts saying things like, "Do you really want to scrape the peanut butter remnants out of that jar so you can recycle it? Just toss it. You recycle way more than most people in Texas."

Then the little angel says, "But it's okay, it will only take a minute."

And then the devil says, "And while you're at it, why don't you throw away that junk mail, instead of opening it, discarding the plastic windows in the envelopes, and recycling the rest."

And then the angel does some kickass karate moves and takes down the devil - because usually, the angel wins. Unfortunately, however, when I'm so busy, this results in me being seriously ANNOYED at the angel, and really wishing it would just take a nap.

Here's the thing, though, if I didn't have the blog and know that at least eleven people are going to hold me accountable, then I probably would let the devil win. Thanks for reading and keeping a digital eye on me.

You don't need to tear the plastic window out. Take it from someone who works in a paper recycling plant.
