Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be staring at your last roll of toilet paper unsure of what you will do when it is gone? Counting down to the last diaper? Wondering if you should be watering down the milk and apple juice? Intentionally skipping meals to make sure that your children do not go without? Calculating how many miles the car can go before you run out of gas and pondering how many interviews that will get you and if you get a job how many work days you will make before having to tell the boss you don’t have transportation? Knowing that you could take the bus but recognizing that the bus requires money that you don’t have? Wondering how resumes will get submitted and jobs found for an IT person without an Internet connection?
It’s not much fun.
