how easily i forget why i cant be a sahm (stay at home mom)! but last night dave was kind enough to remind me during a fabulous debate on finances! you see i made the bold decision to purchase seventh generation laundry detergent due to my recent enlightenment on chemical properties (& subsequent health risks) of commonly used household products. you see...i just want to take baby steps...and start changing over piece by piece.. to more environmentally friendly products. albeit, generally there is more initial cost...which is where the debate came in. dave is against spending more on such silly nonsense. this is when i started remembering why it is that i make my own money. bc unless you are married to a saint...there is some power play from the money maker in a one income family...whether it be outright or more subliminal...and yes...i admit..i am "damaged goods" in that I come from a long long too long previous marriage where i was financially violated and thus have a huge ole chip on my shoulder about money power struggles....so long story short. I LOVE MAKING MY OWN MONEY. Its allows me true independence...without the constant need to compromise. So the simple solution to our difference in opionion was to say..." No problem sweetheart...I will just pay for it out of my own account". and thats the end of that. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh sweet freedom.
Regarding the pic: The Crab Nebula is a six-light-year-wide expanding remnant of a star's supernova explosion. Japanese and Chinese astronomers recorded this violent event nearly 1,000 years ago in 1054, as did, almost certainly, Native Americans. This is one of the largest and most detailed view taken by Hubble, and in addition, the highest resolution image ever made of the entire Crab Nebula
