Just had to share!

My husband posted this on his FB page last week. When I read I laughed and thought wow that sounds just like us! But I did not think at all hewrote it.Turns out he said he did!

A simple conversation between a husband and wife:

White collar professional husband: " I need to go buy some veggies."
Earthy-hippie dread-headed wife: "No, let's plant a garden and grow our own veggies."

White collar professional husband: " I gotta pay the bills."
Earthy-hippie dread-headed wife: "Lets find a way to have our own energy and live off the grid."

White collar professional husband:... "Gotta go buy milk at the store."
Earthy-hippie dread-headed wife: "Let's buy a herd-share and get fresh milk straight from the cow."

White collar professional husband: "Our gas energy bill is going up."
Earthy-hippie dread-headed wife: "You know there is plenty of wood around, let's burn it in the fireplace."

White collar professional husband: "I need to go buy some fertilizer for the garden."
Earthy-hippie dread-headed wife: "Let's build a composter and make our own."

White collar professional husband: "I need to go buy diapers."
Earthy-hippie dread-headed wife: "Lets use cloth diapers, the baby will be happier."

The husband scratches his head and says to his wife, "why do we need to do all that extra work to live greener?" The wife says to the husband, "so our children will have a better world to live in." The husband still looking at the wife, she adds, "and we will save money too." That gets the husbands attention.

The moral of this is: listen to the wife ..... sometimes (most of the time) she knows what she is talking about.

The above conversation was an actual conversation. And now I live "greener".

Haha! he got some serious points for that one! Of course it didn't go quite like this and it was at different times but I loved that he wrote it out. And I always tell him watch out cause it could be getting a lot "greener" around here. xD That is only a pinch of the stuff I talk about with him. Most things he thinks I am crazy but he usually comes around. :)

And much to my dismay we are no where close to living off the grid yet but I can hope for someday..

Thats awesome. :D Prob is right now with 2 kids he needs his job. It is pretty stable and in this economy unless you have another secure plan it is not something you should get rid of... And since his job is located in Ohio that is where we have to live. I miss the mountains a lot but Im much happier having a home and food. I was in a bad sitution before he came into my life.

Another thing is I am pretrified of tornados. We get warnings/watches all the time here so when we were house hunting I had to have a basement. I could not live out here without a basement I am too scared. And we don't have any land or extra money to build our own home either... I figure there has to be a way someday butI haven't figured it out yet. And it makes it difficult that we are stuck locally to where his job is too. I can't even have goats on our property because the city does not allow it. :( I am trying really hard to get chickens though, the only thing holding us back is a proper coop. We just haven't been able to afford the materials to build one yet.. But again I don't want to complain because we could be so much worse off...

tell him u want an eco dome or earthship tehen tell him your total bills fir a tyear will be under 100 dollars per year and your house will provide all you need food water electric heat and cooling all virtualy free then get a deisel convert it to run on veggie oil the way they were designed to run originoly fu]=ill up free at mcdonaldfs

maybe corporate hubby will drop the corporate and become more hippie

in fact watch 'off the grid" my freind robbie is in that hes lived off the grid a long time

before that he had several phds was the ceo of 10 diferent fortune 500 companies his busines card lists all his phdas ceos and orther credentuals but then in bold rd his most proud og[-f axcomplishment "and also an accomplished apple picker"

(hes got a very bad pine issue gets around with 2 sticks..or crawls or uses a wheelchair) the guys a brilliab[nt man can play 10s or even hundreds of thousands of obscure som[ngs on mandoline from menmopry something like 40,000 russian folk sond[-gs as anb example of jut a tiny fraction of the songs hes memorized

now he turned all his ties into a tie suite ..literaly a suite sewn out of ties his tipi flies ties from the tipi poles

and he lives pretty much the oposite of the corporate work[ld he was part of before
