over the past month, I am still in the regrouping process. The good news is I now have food stamps and medical insurance for my family to go along with my unemployment, but that does not go too far when you live in an RV and are feeding three people for $264 each month. Well at least for this month, next month is a different story. My husband and I are having a cooking competition. We are buying a big bag of potatoes and a big bag of rice, ( 50 pounds each) and each taking $100 to feed the family for 15 days. I will report back on how that goes. 🙂
The chickens are all gone and so are the cats and turtles. All we have left are the two dogs, which when you live on the streets you really need for protection. Eventually I am sure we will get a gun somewhere but right now this will not be the case.
We must go every other day to get water for drinking and water for cooking and dishes since we have not found a place to fill our water tank. We use the gallon jugs and the coin operated machines in front of the grocery store. For bathing we go to the gym to work out and shower.
This has become and adventure. We are moving to our empty 20 acres in June, just as soon as school lets out. Until then we are living in our 25 year old Fleetwood Bounder. We recently purchased it at an auction using our tax refund. We will be losing our cars by the end of January and will most likely switch to bicycles, unless I can find something at the auction.
I was so depressed for a while, however I am feeling better and know that my family can make this work. Will post soon, in the meantime, watch out for zombies..they are closer than you know!
