My car has been in the shop for almost a week. I’m relying on carpooling with Ryan and Morgan and running home after work (physically – I put on my running shoes and run home).
My social life has consisted of hanging out with my neighbors because, hey, I can get there without assistance.
Sunday, Ryan commented, “riding together everywhere has been fun!” It has. We’ve spent lots of time together, and he’s a better driver than I am, so everyone is happier and safer.This whole experience made me think about my carbon footprint. I live one mile from my office. So I took a quiz online to check out my carbon footprint thinking I’d ace the test – but my final score wasn’t stellar!
If you want a wake-up call, go to myfootprint.org and take the carbon-footprint quiz. Then get on a bus or train and stop using your car. Then move into a commune. A commune with solar panels.
Love mother earth!
P.S. Found out about this quiz in Marie Claire. My love affair with the magazine continues!
