The organic foods is another one I don't understand. He prefers to buy from Whole Foods or as I like to call it Whole Paycheck. I love that he is concerned for our well being especially for the kids since they would be more effected by all the junk in the foods but, it gets a little bit overwhelming sometimes for me. There are times when I just want to say "Is it really necessary?" but, I know the answer to that one. The icing on the cake came the other day when he wanted to go and buy Monopoly to play with our oldest daughter. He came home with Earthopoly instead...what?? So, instead of houses you get carbon credits??? huh??? Instead of hotels you get clean air (do I really need clean air more than a hotel?). Instead of a thimble a shoe or a top hat you get a bean, corn kernel, or a shell, OK come on now...this is getting ridiculous. I have come to the conclusion that this is my life and I could either sit back and feel good about it or complain about it...which do you think I have chosen? BTW, recipe for the cleaner is half borax and half baking soda...I know that at least half of you are thinking, "What the hell is borax?"

Tales From the Eco-friendly House
One of the things that I adore about super hot hubby is he is very environmental. He uses only earth friendly type cleaners, buys organic whenever possible, and would LOVE to buy a hybrid car (not for the savings in gas money but, for the environment). I strive to be this way as well but, I have a confession to make. Lean in close and I will whisper it to you. Ready? While I love this about him, I hate it as well. It is usually an after thought for me to buy and use the eco friendly products. I am getting better but, convenience and cheapness prevails at times. I think it takes longer to scrub and scour the sink with the homemade cleaner that he makes for me. Yes, I said home made and I KNOW you want the "recipe". There are days when I would really like to smuggle in a container of Comet to really scrub the sink and my school has this cleaner that we use on the floors in the cafeteria that is one step short of eating away at the floor but, man, do those floors shine and sparkle.
