Week 63 – Burien Ground

December 20, 2009

We’re not sure if it’s the holidays or the bitter cold but we are finding it very difficult to find time for our weekly bucket pick up. Ben had to work extra hours and between the kids and the rain we just couldn’t seem to make it work.  This is the second missed week where we needed to pick up four buckets to make up for lost time.

When the constant rain and bitter cold turned to 40 degree weather and just a gentle mist, we headed out quickly before the weather turned on us once again.  We can’t help but wonder why it has been so difficult making the time where as last year we didn’t even miss a week during a massive snow storm.

Maybe because it’s not a new adventure, maybe it’s because our current administration (our initial muse) has had more uphill climbs than we anticipated and we’re feeling the effects.

Maybe the newness has worn off, but during these trying times we must pull together, make the best of it and forge ahead.  Four buckets in the cold mist amongst the massive debris near the airport in Burien made for a quick pick up.

We couldn’t even see the loud airplanes overhead.  We knew they were there as they rumbled in the dark gray clouds.  63 weeks and 4 buckets later we looked back at the tire and garbage ridden area and could barely see a dent.  But I liken our efforts to the invisible planes overhead…we can’t see it but we believe it’s headed in the right direction.
