    I like going for a walk with my children as we listen to music along the way. We also listen to the sounds of nature too.

    I would like to be able to go to bed a little earlier, more or less within 30 mins after putting my children to be able to get the little extra sleep that could help me through my day.

    I feel great now that I have limited my sugar intake. I never realized until now what effects sugar has on your body. I feel better and more productive with the least of the sugar I take in.

    We have both residential and Business landfills in our area. One is located in between two of the towns, and the other is located farther out of town.
