No more plastic bags.

Forget Mommy Dearest I'm living with Gracie Dearest.

I am no longer allowed to use plastic bags.

From anywhere!

Not the exchange or the commissary or any other store.

Would you like to know why? Because every time I do I now get a lecture from my darling daughter about using them.

This is how it goes...

We use the plastic bags then they are taken to the dump where the wind picks them up and blows them into the ocean. After that they float around and look like jelly fish so the sea turtles eat them and then die.

Hmm I don't want to be responsible for the death of countless sea turtles.

Good thing we already have plenty of reusable bags, if only I could remember to keep them in my car.

I have lots of reusable bags too and they are in my car so I won't forget them when I go to the store. But, still I only remember to take them in about half the time. I think I need to keep them in my purse.

She is too funny!!!!!! I remember having similar talks with my parents about cutting up the plastic rings that hold 6 pack cans together.

I always forget too. I must own at least 2 dozen trader joes reusable bags and I lost count of the costco ones.
