One mother making ends meet and surviving today's recession by writing. One family learning to live off the land, cut back on expenses, and to live a simpler and a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

Splitting my first cord of wood
I have already split wood before today (by hand), but am making a goal to split one cord by myself. For every woman out there who has ever split a cord of wood by hand, I give you a great big hug. My fingers, thumbs, and wrists are so sore after today. We had many stump pieces about 3 feet wide by about 1 1/2 feet tall, that needed split. I definitely won't be splitting a full cord today.
