Quick update and rant about recycling

Two things, a quickie update and a little rant.
First, I have lots and lots of great pictures to show you about the chickens and what we've been up to lately.  I'm sooooooo sorry that it has been over two months since I have posted anything.  I've been so busy and haven't taken the chance to do it. :( Please forgive me?

School is going pretty good, there is only 3 weeks left in this semester, then I have 2 weeks off before the summer semester starts!  Also, in 3 weeks, I'll be getting my braces off finally!  So Popcorn and Snickers bars and nuts and gum and everything else I love, here I come!!!  I'm super excited! It has only been 3 1/2 years!  Hubby is doing good, the chickens are doing good, somehow they all survived the harshest winter Iowa has seen in many years!  So glad we all made it!  I've been busy still working at the store, its pretty good.  I really really miss working in an office environment, so I've been looking a little bit here and there for a different job, but nothing as of yet.  I thought I had a job at a publishing company here in town, but they ended up finding someone with more experience.  Oh well! At least I have a job!  And it will work pretty good while going to school too.

That is about all I can think of at the moment, I'll try to update you with more information and pictures of the little babies soon (the chickens of course).

AND NOW...The rant.
I was going to put this on Facebook, but I figured I'd get too many opinions and I really didn't want to argue with people about it so I'll do it here instead!

I finally finished a stupid Global Business paper. Yay!  I think it turned out alright.

I don't usually do this, but I'm going to rant for a minute.  Ok, so you know on the bottles and cans where it says IA 5 cents! You think that you get 5 cents for the bottle right? So its a good deal, right? NO!  You have to pay the 5 cents when you buy the stupid plastic bottle or can on top of the cost of the product.  Then, if you want your stupid 5 cents back you have to take it all into one of the centers in a store and stand it all up nicely in a little box and then you get your money back (you can't crush your cans either so they take up less space and you can't put them in a 12 pack box and hand it in that way...noooo!!!).  I hate being forced into recycling, granted I CAN choose not to take it in, its completely optional and its only 5 cents, but I want my money back!  I think it is the stupidest thing ever to make people recycle like that. it literally makes me mad to have to go through the whole process.  First, I feel like an idiot taking bags of cans and bottles in the store in a cart, then it takes for EVER to put them in the boxes, and then you get $1.25 back for all that work.  Whoop-de-doo.  I love recycling, in fact, we have more recycling than garbage.  I just don't think they should pre-charge me for it and take my money like that.
