Kelly 2 chicken breasts educates you on economics.

Kelly has been..well to be perfectly honest I am not sure what she has been doing for her last four posts. She drags this out every few months in some guise or another.

I will translate.

For this post, I’d like to do more of an ‘inspiration overview’ of what it looks like when the home is the center of economic affairs, one of the characteristics of home that began this series, and how a woman, together with her family, can live life with home as the source, not the sacrifice of it all.

This is where I start saying that when the woman stays at home everything is perfect and use this as my basis to tell everybody else they are doing at wrong. I don't really have much evidence to support this as I am rather ignorant.

Children’s Part

So all should work together to save and to earn, to use money wisely and to be resourceful. It is my opinion that children should be involved, not shielded from the monetary responsibilities of running a household. They should grow up with a good sense of what bills look like and understand the cost of living. The earlier they learn the “work for pay†model, the better prepared they will be for real life. (This, as opposed to simply getting an allowance.)

While children shouldn’t necessarily be required to contribute directly to the paying of bills, they should be required to be good stewards of utilities and the consumable comforts of home. A pattern of wastefulness may be countered with monetary consequences until he learns the value of resourcefulness.

I am so disheartened that the coal industry is declining, we are supposed to believe that fossil fuel is running out, those socialists again. The amount of income my undernourished children could make sweeping chimneys would certainly be useful.

Kevin Swanson calls his family a “seven-income householdâ€. In a typical, American home, the children are largely financial liabilities, with parents spending to provide them with many wants and desires outside of what is reasonable. Giving gifts is a good thing; going bankrupt to help your children keep up with the neighbors is not…not for a family and not for the child.

We encourage our children to find ways to make money to spend on items they want. But occasionally, they also offer to pay for their part if we eat out or chip in on something the family is saving for, etc. It’s only logical that we should be helping them develop healthy saving and spending habits. I think it’s safe to say that a poor practice of financial control by individuals has morphed into one of our nation’s biggest problems.

As children get older, it is reasonable that the family would benefit from everyone’s income–if everyone eats, uses electricity, enjoys vacations, etc., why shouldn’t everyone pitch in? It’s counter-culture, perhaps, but something families of the past understood made it all work.

One of my children asked to go to university. I was incandescent with horror at her selfishness. She prayed and realised that babysitting would be a good career instead. It was a very scary moment. Her brother bought her an ice-cream from his savings that he had earned tilling the soil to show his pride in her decision.

Frankly, the more time we have, the more money we can save and/or earn, which is an important aspect of having a manager at home. She can use all the powers of her mind and all the facets of her gifts and abilities to reuse, create, produce and multiply her resources. We may think of a woman coming home as “reducing to a one-income familyâ€, but a woman who understands her potential can continue creative income-earning opportunities in addition to saving and stretching the money they make.

Make soap.

I have lived through turbulent economic crises, we have been the scorn of those wondering why we would be so “irresponsible†to have children on such a tight budget, we have been to the desperate place of, “What are we going to do?†and I have seen God do the unthinkable and miraculous on our behalf. He is a faithful Father, and though hardship can and will come, I have never seen Him forsake the righteous.

When we give to Him what is His, He promises to take care of our needs and I think we need a grass-roots return to that fundamental truth in a way that causes us to live out our faith in shoe leather.

And beyond His provision, I believe He wants our homes to be beacons, even financially, providing enough even to always be ready and willing to extend our hands to the needy around us.

People gave us money. We asked people for money. We took their money. I call it God providing because it is easier than saying sponging.

Part 1, 2, and 3 were pretty much more of the same. Waffle.

So basically she has more kids so they can eventually(at the age of four and five) work and help support her since she for sure isn't going to go get a job?

I am trying hard to follow her lead but with one child it's going to be hard, they only need two hours sleep though right?

She mentioned turning your home in to a farm in Part 3. So I gazed at my lawns and said to my headship you know we could practically keep two goats, a cow, chickens and still have room for grazing in the back. The front would feed us for a year if planted up properly with crops. Alas he said 'You've been watching the 'The Good Life' again haven't you?'

I tried.

Its sad that children have to work so they can get that tiny amount of food that they can survive.

Why do they have to do that? If my children had to work because we were struggling for money and I was unemployed, I would be the one looking for a job, not them.

So, she's going to start charging her kids rent? And she sees her children as a financial liability? That's fucked up.

Um--I charged my brother rent growing up. Told him that because I was the oldest it was my job to get his $2 a week, add my $2 a week and then give it to mom and dad. There was HELL to pay when they found out (about 6 months after I started)...but I had more money than any other 7 year old on the block.

Carry on.

When I was sixteen and still at school I got my first part-time job. Dishwasher extraordinaire was I. £24.20 for four split shifts over a Saturday and Sunday. My Mother took £10 per week off me for my 'keep.' I remember being totally and utterly pissed off at this. She also advised me to save for university out of this. I really resented it big time! As you do at sixteen. Do you know how many albums I could have bought?

Fast forward to the day I left home for Uni some two or so years later. She handed me a bank book in my name with £3000 in it. The money she had taken from me and her doubling of it. She asked me how much I had saved and offered to double that also. Errr I think I had about £30 in mine :(

She had done the same to my siblings who were all sworn to secrecy. She knew at sixteen saving would not be on mind. I learned a fair bit from that.

Imagine Kelly doing that. OH wait. Never going to happen. Ever. Unless it is a dowry of facial products.

That was your duty as the oldest. I would have done the same.

Your mom did a good thing for you. And I'm sure your mother, you know, had enough food in the house, not to mention that you were going to university. My parents also made me save half of my earnings for when I moved out. What your mom and my parents did not do is make us feel like a burden. Huge difference from what Chicken Tit Kelly is doing to her children.

Is this the woman whose home was destroyed in a tornado? And her oldest daughter was born to her before she was married? :oops: Or am I thinking of the wrong person?

:shame: yes. Yes I have. How did you know? My partner can tell when I've been into The Good Life or Tales From The Green Valley. There are plans for ploughing and thatching and massive gardens.

OH with pleasure!

*Chicken casserole

I had 2 small, frozen chicken breasts, a wilted stalk of celery half an onion, 4 mushrooms and some rice.

Boiled the chicken in water with celery stalks, a bit of oil/butter and onion. I sauteed the (finely chopped) mushrooms with some garlic, then made a creamy sauce in that pan with oil, some of the broth and milk (I think I used half and half). Browned the chicken and put it in the blender, chopping rather finely. I poured everything over rice (which I cooked in the chicken broth) and it was SO yummy. Served with salad. I had cheers all around. (I set about 1 cup of excess rice in the fridge for later.)

She'll always be Kelly 2 chicken breasts to me. Or Generationstarvation. Can't decide :?

We live in a forest, I'm not sure we have enough sunny patches to grow all our own food(and why the hell isn't Kelly doing this so her kids aren't stuck with wilted celery). I am 100% sure I won't be able to get my husband to clear the forest so I can start a farm.

OkToBeTakei, I thank you from the bottom of my heart (in my breast but not a chicken breast)!

Kelly 2 Chickenbreasts sounds either like a First Nations name given to a white lady who wants to be recognized by a tribe or a member of the Irish mafia in NYC (Kelly, get it? ;) ) or a nickname Michael K at dlisted.com would give a starlet with implants.

Just noticed my previous post was my 6660th. Funny!

There is a CSA in Utah called Backyard urban garden. The person who runs it rents out peoples backyards to grow produce in. She even added eggs last year. The people who rent out their backyards get the produce, eggs for allowing this person to use their land. One of my friends rented out her entire back yard. She loves it because she no longer has to worry about taking care of it. And, she gets lots of produce and eggs in return.

My husband's parents are pretty fundie. As soon as my husband graduated high school his parents charged him rent. $400 a month. Just the same as if he was renting a room anywhere else. He moved out of the house pretty shortly after and to this day it still bothers him a great deal.

My parents (large fundie catholic family) made us give half of everything we earned to them to "help support the family". So not right. I suspect Kelly's children are going to resent her when they grow up. Afterall, they did not chose to be born into a large poor family where the parents insist on making poor choices.

Apparently there was also a salad, for what that's worth--which isn't much.

Uh huh. Salad is ..Godly?

Salad is a side. It is a tasty green thing. Not a filler for a crap meal.

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.
