So one thing on my mind has been sustainable living. I am living a life that is so far from sustainable it is amazing. My family is very dependent on oil. We use gas in the car, and drive everywhere. Our food has been shipped to the grocery store, and then we drive to the store and buy it. Our goods have been shipped to large retail chain stores where we again drive and buy it. I think one of our major goals this year is going to be to learn how to sustain ourselves! I wonder if I can have chickens on post... and I wonder if I can find a butcher that will "fix" my chickens? I am not sure I could cook and eat it if I used to talk to it and collect it's eggs. I suppose we shall see, eh?
