Sindy's Blog - October 2, 2007

October 2, 2007

I bet a lot of you thought I wouldn't follow through with any of the plans I made in my last blog. I haven't been quite as ambitious as I would have liked, but I did start working on my proposal to present to the principal.

My mom's been helping me a bit, just making suggestions on what adults might like to hear. Like, even though we'd be helping the environment, my mom says that the school board is more likely to agree to my project if it will help them save money. I figure that over the course of a month, we'd collect about 20,000 bottles and cans. At five cents a bottle, we'd make like $1,000 a month!

After crunching those numbers, I can't imagine why we haven't been recycling all along. Think of all school dances, uniforms and field trips we could have paid for! Do your schools have recycling programs? Are you involved at all?

Since I've been spending so much time on this proposal, I haven't really had a chance to get down to the beach with Finn. He's been calling to invite me out surfing, but I just really want to get this done. I think I'll take an afternoon off though - Finn probably won't just keep waiting around for me.

Okay. If I want to go surfing and present this proposal this week, I better get to work! Have a great long weekend!

Peace Out,
Sindy

    Do You Recycle?

    • Yeah, everything from bottles to newspapers.
    • Usually, cuz it's good for the environment.
    • Rarely - it's easier to throw it all out in the trash.
    • No, but I'm going to start.

    Spacekitty14: I understand your situation. I have family members who have varying degrees of autism. I understand that it seems unfair to you that more attention goes to your brothers, but you have to remember that they didn't ask for this. They probably don't want to deal with the problems that they are facing. As far as giving up certain types of food, those are just sacrifices that a lot of people have to make. Just try to learn more about their condition and see what you can do to help, then you won't have to feel "left out" or "ignored" by your parents. Just be patient and understand the situation. I hope that all goes well for you and your family

    Both of my brothers have autism. I am 12 and a girl. I also have a 3 y/o sister. It always seems like my parents pay more attention to them then me. I don't want to tell them about it because they will think I'm being selfish. But i can't do ANYTHING fun. My little brother is allergic to half the ingredients in most candies, so I can never go trick-or-treating. And I have not had eggs since I was 3. I always have to do everything by myself. How do I deal with this?
