In-your-face stuff from an opinionated
rural north Idaho housewife.
Enola Gay is very bright but for those of us out there doing a tough job dailey, we need to go with the flow. I spend my money on things that make my situation a bit easier. I do not mean to imply that doing a blog and the rest is not difficult. I couldn't do it. Different strokes and all of that.
We're all just such weirdos, aren't we? LOLI've just been 'de-constructing' some cast-off sweaters and now have a great assortment of high quality yarns that would cost a small fortune if I'd had to buy them retail. In fact, even the prices for most of the yarn at the local thrift stores has become prohibitive. So I wait for the sales and watch for the extra x plus sizes and invest the time it takes to take them apart. I'm currently working with some really nice cotton yarn that's been pre-shrunk and is nicely softened from its previous life as a Coldwater Canyon turtle neck pullover. LOLI paid $1.50 for it and got enough yarn to make several very nice Christmas and Mother's Day gifts. Ta-daaaaa! And I've never made car payments.So unAmerican! lolA.McSp
your previous anon. commentator missed the point of enolas post entirely....personally, i loved her post and started my own list..vastly different in some areas, yet very similar in purpose. a tough hard life is alot easier to survive in if a person is prepared for it. a big screen tv wont keep ya warm, a cell phone/smart phone won't provide a meal, and ya cannot open a can with video games.
