    Based on the food in your house now - be it stockpiles or just what is in the kitchen cabinets at the moment... How long could you and your family sustain yourselves before running dry? Pretend for a moment that you only had access to what was in the house, growing on your own land or within...

After further discussion, I realized he did not want me there. {background - We've been married two years, and built the house 10 months ago. His name is on the mortgage and both of our names are on the...

    I dont even know where to begin. The last few months I have noticed changes in my DS15. Nothing bad I'd say...the way he dresses was a BIG thing. I was fine with it,in fact completely support him and stand up for him with his brothers(14 and 16) because he chooses not to be "just like them" he...

    I came across FV somehow and had a spark of recognition. Omg how I wish my current status was all the debt I had. Obviously since I wandered away in 2007 it's been a downward spiral into debt. I've started working on paying down debt, making my own products and keep a few chickens these days...

    I know it's only Wednesday and instead of a four day work week I only have three days this week. But it seems to be never ending. The two year that I keep in my home is a child that I don't even recognize this week. She's had several long weekends away from me lately with the holidays and...

    Today I got to meet and have lunch with a cousin of mine that I have not seen or heard from for about 50 years. It was a very, very good meet-up. I was a very apprehensive about how it would go, but to my great surprise we shared a wonderful time. Below is my cousin and me at the restaurant...

    I haven't posted in quite a few years and was mostly a lurker even then. So been stopping by occasionally to read but not often enough apparently. Hubby's income has went up a bit along with debt. No excuse just stupid stuff. Right now we have around 10k which includes a small car loan...

  12. Christmas
    ... I need new friends! I posted briefly about this in another thread on "the spirit of giving." This year I sent 3 people whom I thought were friends small gifts. Two got a book that I thought they'd like. I'd read the book and LOVED it, so I bought them each a new copy from Amazon. The...

    A word of warning to all, don't ever do any kind of business or accept any kind of monetary favors from family, no matter how "good" it seems! My DH and I have had a hard time and were close to losing our house, which we were fine with renting if it came to that. But we had decided to try to...

    As some of you know, OldMan has a younger brother. 8 years ago we invited him to live with us, get a job, get on his feet, break away from the problems he had in Memphis. End result.
