Why I do the crazy things I do

I do some crazy things. Like using all cloth products in the house, not using shampoo, and making my own cleaners and laundry soap. Crazy in that they are different from most of my friends and family, but no so crazy when I discover some of you are doing them too.

Why do I do these things?

First:
I am frugal. I want to save money. I also want to be a good steward of the money God has entrusted to me.

Second:
I want to protect the earth's resources. I want to be a good steward of the earth God has entrusted to us.

Third:
I have sensitive skin and chemicals irritate me. Plus I don't want as many chemicals on my skin or my kids skin.

I realize we all do some things that others may think is strange and although I am fine with the choices I am making others think it's weird. So I have to learn when to talk about my crazy ways and when to hold my tongue.

Thanks goodness for my blog, where I can share my crazy ways and even find some fellow bloggers doing some crazy stuff too.

So what happens if you marry or fall in love with someone who is the complete opposite? for example I hate home made detergent, I can't give up my Tide! so my question is, would you try get the other person to do crazy things like you?!

Things to think about lol

If I meet and marry someone who is more convential, I would be flexable.

I will ask him if he wants me to wash his clothes in the homemade stuff, if he prefers his detergent I will wash his clothes in that. But I will continue to wash my clothes in homemade stuff, mostly because Josh gets hives with most detergents. Plus I also have sensitive skin as well.

Also if he wants to say buy paper towels, I will not object, but ask him to buy recycled. And I will continue to use cloth.

I am able to comprimise. But no matter what I want to be a good steward of everything God gives me.

P.s. my mom buys me paper towels on occasion and I do use them, especially when we had the puppies.
