The Rut of Motherhood

The Rut of Motherhood
From Sarah:
I never had the Mom RUT but I sure have The Rut Of Now What? No kids around. Bobby is in Heaven. I am not teaching any more and not able to volunteer as much at the park where we live and hubby works. Everything is HARD.

I miss Motherhood. I thrived on it.
I have been in A SERIOUS RUT SINCE LAST SPRING. Waiting for it to cool off. Waiting for something. Anything. Depression Hurts.

How I've Learned To Live Frugally



From Sarah:
Danny and I have simplified our lives as well.
I have to admit though, If we had a dishwasher here, I would gladly use it. I wouldn't run it till it was full and that wouldn't be that often.
I still hang clothes out to dry when I can. I dry the heavier ones because the humidity in Florida makes it hard to get them dry before the thunder bummers roll in. It's been years since either of us had anything new so it pays to take care of what one has.
We do monthly Walmart trips and visit our neighborhood (7 miles away) little store, only when we have to .
I make meals that we can eat on for a few days when I can. I freeze extras as well.
SInce I love to cook, I will often make extras. It's easy that way and I always have something to take out on those days I don't feel good.

Could you live here in that little trailer?
Maybe not that particular one and certainly NOT that close to PEOPLE. LOL....But Yes, I can and have lived in one.
Years ago I when Bobby was little we had an 8 foot trailer.
It was cozy. But , we were fortunate to live on our family farm at the time.
Cedar Manor Stock Farm.
We lived next to the BARN. And we loved it there.
