Saturday, March 27 from 8:30 - 9:30 pm is Earth Hour. I posted about it last year with suggestions about how to spend an hour with the lights off (hubba hubba!). This will be the third time I've participated and I encourage all of you to participate and invite others to take part!
What is Earth Hour? According to the organization’s website:
Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million homes and businesses turned their lights off for one hour to make their stand against climate change. Only a year later and Earth Hour had become a global sustainability movement with more than 50 million people across 35 countries participating. Global landmarks such as the, Sydney Harbour Bridge, The CN Tower in Toronto, The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, and Rome’s Colosseum, all stood in darkness, as symbols of hope for a cause that grows more urgent by the hour.
In 2009 hundreds of millions of people around the world showed their support by turning off their lights for one hour.
Earth Hour 2010 will continue to be a global call to action to every individual, every business and every community. A call to stand up, to show leadership and be responsible for our future.

Remember that first interview I had after being laid off? The one that caused me to really think about my situation and to have this epiphany? That position is open again. Yesterday I saw it advertised on Craigslist. I am so tempted....
For those of you who watch Lost... Do you really think it's possible they will wrap everything up to our satisfaction in the 7 remaining episodes? Yeah, me either.
I joined a blogger book review site and received my first book to review. I'm reading it now and will be sharing my thoughts sometime in April. Stay tuned!
Our renter moved out yesterday. The house has been turned back over to us. Handy Man has already spent some time over there replacing doors. Full on work starts today to prepare for selling; painting, replacing molding, finishing doors, replacing light fixtures, roof and gutter cleaning, refinishing the hardwoods, going to the dump. I'm tired just thinking about it. If everything goes as planned it should be on the market in 2 weeks.
I'm going to visit Asthmagirl tonight for a much needed hair color, in preparation for the job interview I have next week!
