To add to my first 3 resolutions for 2012, I’m adding 2 more.
#4 Reduce, Reuse, Recycle more diligently. I’ve been reading this book called, “Go Green, Live Rich” by David Bach. It’s really well written (which I like), and it has a bunch of facts about how much we, Americans, waste. Did you know that the entire USA uses 8.2 million barrels of oil/day = amount that Saudia Arabia produces in 1 day (Bach). That’s absurd!
#5 Save my dollars and cents! We’re leaving Okinawa…SOON (I promise), and we’re in for a rather rude awakening when we return to the States. No matter where we go, we’ll need 2 vehicles, a new house (security deposit, 1st/last months rent, pet deposit), traveling money, possible kenneling fees, etc. It’s going to a very horrible and expensive transition if we don’t start saving now!
