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

the A/C

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.



  1. endured the test of times I'd say... The oldest and best entertainment yet....and no energy know- electricity energy- that I think about it, I'm not sure how green it is...a lot of carbon dioxide being pushed into the air if you know what I mean...

  2. I think you would have a made an excellent pioneer lady.

  3. When Ryan's friends find out we have 6 under age 9, they always tell him that he NEEDS to get a TV.

  4. I also like indoor plumbing!
