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.

My days are so short anymore, especially with having to restock firewood, hanging the laundry outside, and other chores that I decided it was time to start getting back in shape. It's not a "new year" thing for me. Today was day 3 in going back to the gym to work out. I have to say, it wasn't as hard as I thought, considering I had been splitting wood by hand and other work around here.
If I want to be a better writer, I need to have better health. We hit the gym at 5am this morning. This means we preset the coffee pot for 4:30am so I can down a cup of coffee and a banana.
