The Decision

So...I decided to become organic.

The conversation went something like this:

Me: Honey, I want us to be organic.
Mr. K: Why?
Me: I want us to be healthier.
Mr. K: But...why?
Me: I just told you. It's good for us.
Mr. K: But, why? What made you decide we have to be organic?
Me: (silence)
Mr. K: (laughter) Well, what does being organic entail?
Me: ...I haven't worked out all the details yet.
Mr. K: (more laughter)

Those of you that really know me, know how I get when I get a bright idea. Especially when the bright idea involves a life changing fiasco. I get a little obsessed, I can admit that.

But, this time is going to be different. Because this time I am not being my typical, obsessed, self. The old me would have made this decision to become organic and emptied out the refrigerator, the cabinets, etc of all contents and replaced them with new organic contents. Note, that I have not done that!

The new and improved me is taking baby steps. I bought a vegetarian cookbook on clearance at Borders.

Anyway, I was originally going to email everyone I knew with a monthly "Going Organic" newsletter. (You can thank me for choosing a blog instead later). My theory and purpose is this...I think a lot more people would make organic and green decisions if it was easier.

So, since I love to research things, and this blog will help me stick to me decision...the blog is born. But wait, there's more..I need your help. If you are already doing organic-y things let me know so I can post them for everyone. If not, subscribe to this blog and we will learn together.
