This is My daughter and I, we live outside the city/urban tri-state area.
I live/ed my entire life paycheck to paycheck, my mom worked 3 crappy jobs, attended school PT. I got my official working papers @ 14 min wage was 3.15 in 1988, I worked at the local movie theater & delivered papers... I started Baby sitting at 10 and odd job.
I homestead (victory garden, sew etc) as much as possible, and I am blessed that I had the wisdom of my grandparents & great grandparents, who showed me from birth to be frugal. They lived the great depression. re-use, re-purpose and recycle.
Saddest thing, I really believed if I worked hard enough, I too would get somewhere.
I got somewhere-I got shoved out of reasonable driving distance to work, affordable housing, decent healthcare again within reasonable driving distance. I am so sick I can barely walk some days, but I still have fire in my heart! My Girl has the same spitfire and wanted to bring blankets when they took the heaters away(she is ten she formed her own opinion)
I called her out today, sick of doctriation and is suffing from rhetoric.
