Shades of Green
I am sure that Husband will give that "look" and sigh when he reads this. Then I will laugh. You see, he didn't realize that he married a green girl. Well, that's what he would say. I would just tell him that I am not but he doesn't agree. Let me first state that I probably wouldn't recycle if we didn't have a recycle day. I am thinking about making my own laundry soap only because I think that it would be fun. I opt to do cloth diapers because I was tired of the "blowouts" and THEN it became fun because there are so many options out there. I try to get Husband back about being green because we have a bi-fuel car. Really, in the end it was about saving money... not the environment. Once a friend legitimately used the phrase "sustainable living" in a conversation with me and I laughed. Thankfully, it was via e-mail. I probably should have refrained from laughing but I could hardly stifle the giggles.
I will say that I don't agree (obviously) with the global warming mumbo jumbo. Is the climate changing? Sure. I am sure that the climate has continued to change at some level since the Lord created the heavens and the earth. Is it caused by Man? I doubt it. Do I think that we should try to be good stewards of the earth? Sure. However, what that means to different households can run the gammut of things. I will try to respect your prespective if it goes a little further down the road than mine... as long as you respect the fact that I am not that far down the road.
Well, now you had a look into a not really green, but people might think we are green, household. With that said, I love my cloth diapers and if you want to chat about them it won't take much to get me started. :)
