Pioneer or A/C
I like to think I'd have been a good pioneer.
I'm fairly resourceful, I like dresses and I don't whine (except when I'm pregnant and I figure I have to use that excuse as much as possible because it is such a temporary situation). We've thought about going off the grid . . . and we would do it . . . were it not for
and the washing machine
and the hot water tank
and the computer.
But besides those few "needs electricity" items, I like the idea of going to bed with the sun, raising much of my own food and the non-electric family entertainment.
On the other hand, maybe the non-electric entertainment is the reason we have so much family.
