Since confessing to giving up the homemade laundry detergent, I should let you in on another secret.
I've been buying toothpaste again.
Remember I tried some homemade concoction?
And then that was not working out so well, so I tried something else?
Well it got worse, and found that my teeth had become very sensitive so much that I went ahead and bought the sensitive tooth stuff (and it is actually working).
Which got me to thinking as to why I started doing all the homemade stuff to begin with. Sure it is fun as a hobby: pioneering and do-it-yourself satisfaction is great. It can be more frugal in some cases, but more often than not, isn't really.
But there was a bigger issue, issues that stem from my distrust of the entire world and everything in it. The big corporations are out to get us and poison us and it's all a big conspiracy type thing.
I was a cloth diaper snob with kiddos 3, 4, and 5, but when 6 rolled around, we had so much laundry that I felt the disposables were worth it. And you know what?
THEY WERE GREAT!
THIS is why people invented 'sposies.
I don't think anymore that all progress is a big conspiracy to destroy the earth or to fill us with toxins or to rearrange our DNA (yes, I have heard pastors online say this). Some may be, most isn't. So many wonderful things have been invented to make our lives better. Some we don't need, some I don't want, but who wants to go back to pre-electric days really?
So, I'm quitting being scared of the world, of the NWO, of the devil. He who is in me is greater that he who is in the world!
