      I am , have been and probably will always be what I am. Seeking the
      cheaper, not the most popular. Prefer the old fashioned way over the
      easier way.

      Yes I need to save money and budget!!! But is it just the
      money? Is it not also holding onto something , some time that was
      simpler, more honest, more
      true?
      I look for all the ways that save money and help my family adjust
      to simpler living.

      Great food. Even snack foods, from clone recipes
      that are harvested from the ground. Starting with the seeds we
      planted.

      (Enough About that) So after I wash dishes by hand, use
      homemade sanitary napkins, cook from scratch. Avoid any and all
      disposables. Dry loads of clothes on a wood clothes dryer over the
      register.

      after all this! a dear , loving relative comes to me with
      a load of dixie cups, paper towels, plastic plates, and of all things
      a gal. of dial softsoap.

      now i am appreciative. i
      hope!!
      but how do i feel? betrayed, foolish, confused.

      i really do not
      know how to feel . but some how i feel as if much of my hard work was
      just flushed. am i ignorant??

      i must be! yet i can’t help the way i
      feel. i will continue!!

      forgive my venting. i would love to hear from
      others, be honest!
      i will lighten up, i promise. i will get over it and get on with
      it.

      i hope with balance!! kim
