I have entered Crunchy Chicken's Buy Nothing Challenge for this month. You can read the rules at the link above this post. I confess that I bought a WoW game card yesterday since I was planning on buying one in a week or two. Don't grief me about WoW. It helps me keep my sanity. As the world goes to hell in a handbasket around me, I can pretend to some sort of normalcy when I play. It is my drug of choice right now. When the grid crashes I will have to find a new drug, I know. And I know that the environmental impact of playing WoW is not small, but that and driving 90 miles each direction for my daughter on the weekends are my hugest impacts by far. So check out the challenge and join us.
I am a full time mom to four wonderful girls, Cait (13), Moira (10), Lauren (7) and Rowan (5), and a boy, Eirik (3). In 2004, I started really thinking about how we live. I started researching the holistic lifestyle - nutrition, vaccines, parenting style, etc. In 2006 I learned about peak oil and have obsessed ever since. Now I am homeschooling my children and working towards one day owning a large farm where we can grow all of our own food, and have a "green" house.
