One of the things I often think about about actually starting to ttc is the way trying and then pregnancy will affect some of my exhausting green and home owner endeavors.
Let’s see… I make my own laundry detergent, use a clothesline when I can, garden, do lots of projects around the house (green and not-so-green), and like to build things. Saturday I spent a good seven hours hauling cinder blocks to make a stand for my rain barrel, mowing the lawn (with a push mower, which is a crazy workout when the yard is as tall as ours was), weeding, installing said rain barrel, and doing some laundry.
And while not every weekend is like that, I like some of them to be. And I know that I’m not going to be so gung-ho when I’m potentially creating and/or protecting (parasitic) life. Also I realize I may very well not have the energy even if I want to. Because being green (and home ownership in general) can take a lot of energy.
Just ponder-y thoughts as I get ready to collect my first watering can of water from my barrel 🙂
