It Isn't Easy Bein' Green


I agree with Kermit-it isn't easy bein' green. Or cheap either! Meet the newest edition to our family. Isn't she great?!? Reminds me of Rosie on the Jetson's-not sure exactly why. Maybe it's the front load doors or that it is so modern and sleek. We weren't exactly trying to be earth-friendly when we picked out our new washer/dryer, but were instead trying to gain more space in our teeny-tiny laundry room. After looking at traditional stackables we decided we still needed a fullsize w/d and happened upon this model. A bit pricey, but full-size capacity, stackable and the bonus is that it is earth-friendly. Less water, electricity, etc. I keep teasing Jeff that he is becoming an environmentalist. Those who know him well can imagine his reaction! My dad has been a big believer in wildlife conservation for as long as I can remember so I think it's pretty important to be good stewards of environmental resources. Not sure I'm ready to agree with Global Warming completely, but I don't think there's any doubt we're all pretty tough on our surroundings. Jeff doesn't like it when I get on that tangent. Little by little though we're trying to become more aware of our impact on the environment. We've been participating in recycling in our community since we moved here and have been trying to be more conscious of how we impact things, but have a long way to go. Ran across this blog the other day and it is very inspiring. In the second half of the year I'm going to try to read more about compacting and how the three of us can do our part to be good stewards of God's creation. Lord knows we need to simplify around here! And I don't know if I'll ever be able to give up Tide or Clorox. Like I said, it isn't easy bein' green!

Mom says, I like your "Rosie". I know you will appreciate the extra room she gives you. Too bad she doesn't sort and load.
