I ran away to my homestead in the jungle. It's lovely but I have no power and no internet there. So right now, the only time I can voat is when I come into town. I miss you all and hope you are all well.
If you need something, pm me on my alt @squishedspam. It may take a week or two, but I'll get back to you next time I return to civilization.
Word of advice, if you get helicopter money, don't blow it paying back debt to bankers. Buy a pressure canner if you don't have one and start preserving food, especially protein. I store with the intent that everyone can get 4 oz. of protein a day. Even if you are just a wife hopeful that hasn't quite started her family yet, still prepare; store food.
Next store seed and plant a garden. You need to be aware that the world has been experiencing several food production disasters that will cause runaway inflation of food stuffs. If you cannot at least partially supplement your diet with food you have produced yourself, you could be in a position where you have to choose between buying food and keeping the lights on. Yes, these are the kind of times that are coming. Do not fear. Prepare. My grandmother produced everything except sugar and flour and I bet yours did as well.
Lastly, get out of the cities. You need to make it happen. Love of comfort and convenience is going to rob you of a prosperous future. Me and mine have chosen to live uncomfortably for the year debt free instead of tied down to a 30 year mortgage on a worthless plot that can't feed us in hardtimes. There isn't much time left to wean your family off the cycle of debt and wage slavery.
Now is the time to become a truly strong independent woman. Let's all grow and thrive on our own terms.
