I'm planning to move out to the country and build my own cob cottage for me and my son. I have practically no money, so I'm going to be roughing it, building as I can pay for materials. I plan on constructing a tipi to live in this summer and winter (unless I come back to NJ to work during the winter). I'm okay with having no utilities, but I have questions. Laundry? I have cloth diapers that need to be washed every two days, though once it gets warm enough (and I'm out...
I got into debt ($1,500ish which was A LOT) in college, but I paid it all off during my pregnancy (got pregnant right after graduating). I pay off everything month now. It's scary how fast it'll pile up if you're not careful.
I'm a single mom living with my parents and brothers. My mom and my dad and my oldest brother are vegetarians that eat a mostly vegan diet. I'm a vegan who falls occasionally. My other four brothers eat everything. Caleb (my son) is a vegan as well (as I am the one that feeds him).
thank you for sharing that. i heartily agree.

This is so funny. I posted a thread exactly like this one on the LLL forum a couple months ago. How awesome is this. Ditto what lots of other people said, but most importantly for me is that being a mother allowed me to be myself and to know what I want. Now if I want to get married, I will never marry the kind of guy that I would have before I had my son. I thank God every day that I had a baby before I got married to some loser who would just drag me down and take my...
