    This has been one of my favorite challenges.

    This was easy to do.

    I'm very glad I participated in this event and have changed some of my not so great habits.

    I think this was the easiest of all the challenges. Perhaps I should have chosen something more challenging?  Or not.  Ha!

    I can hardly believe I've gone almost 2 weeks without bringing a bag home from the store!

    This challenge has really flown by and I'm happy about making some changes to bad habits.

    I am so impressed with the tough challenges some of my fellow Ecoblazers have  selected and are accomplishing.  We've got some very dedicated people on this team.  Nice work everyone!

    I'll be powering down as soon as I'm done here.  :-)

    I'm so glad my new home printer has a two-sided option!

    I know we're getting to the end of the challenge but I'm confident some of the better habits I've developed are going to stick with me.
