A Bit Backward?

Why the name, "A Bit Backward . . .?"

We like to think we're old fashioned or backward thinking in how we live. Though sometimes (because of our lifestyle choices), some find us a little bit backward - in the other sense of the word . . .
  • We married younger than most - 20 and 23 respectively. 
  • We are active in our church - on Sunday - and every other day too.
  • I am a stay-at-home mom by choice. We don't have much money to speak of, but we make it work.
  • We support natural birthing. (Though, we appreciate hospitals and modern medicine too.)
  • We don't own a TV - nor do we spend a lot of time watching TV on Hulu. It's just not our thing.
  • We prefer to read out loud to each other, or listen to the radio and talk about what we hear.
  • We cloth diaper our baby (!) and love it - it's frugal and green.
  • I make bread dough from scratch without a bread-maker at least once a week.
  • We don't believe in credit cards and avoid debt wherever possible. We're Dave Ramsey followers.
  • We save our pennies - and don't have a problem picking them up off the asphalt either.
  • He - changes the oil, builds stuff, fixes the car, goes fishing, brings home the bacon.
  • I - sew, craft, cook, try to look nice for the hubby, and fix up the fish he catches for dinner.
  • We try to live by the old adage: "Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without."
You get the idea. We hope you enjoy reading about our "backward" lifestyle as much as we enjoy living it!
