Hello from texoma

Post by Katonk » Sat Apr 06, 2019 3:34 pm

:heart: hello all!
Im happy to be here but I've got to be honest: I know nothing of cattle.
I'm here to get some insight on life around folks like you.
Backstory: I'm married with 5 young sons, 6 in the summer, under my roof. My husband and I were both born and raised in big cities that had cultures that are totally at odds with our current lifestyle.
Meaning we believe in parenting not making friends, and going our own way with Jesus.
No I'm not about to preach at you all but it's helpful for you to know where I'm coming from.
I'm ignorant, but the good news is that ignorance is curable.
It doesn't bother me in the least that I'm so green- I'd like to see you guys roll a hustle like I did in Las Vegas, keeping three families fed without a hit to my own mortality.
Makes sense moving out to where I could teach my sons how to be men without teaching them how to coexist next door to a violent pimp meant putting me out of my element.
It's better out here, and my sons are doing so well... But there's been a cost.
We have very little.
Understand we have exactly what we need, the Lord has always provided for us and He won't quit now, but I know I could be doing better too meet our needs with what we've got.
As a mother I've been lucky enough to be able to stay home since moving here (about 4 years) and though I'm looking forward to returning to work next year when the youngest enters school the budget needs every effort now to operate on the one income.
Husband works TIRELESSLY and he deserves my best efforts.
There's the back story. Here's my need:
Where do I find stuff??!!!
From cast off tin and where to buy meat on the cheap to metal tubing (I'm teaching myself to weld and it's as scary as it sounds!) and where exactly can a girl find some barrels i'm looking for those in the know!

Fyi husband works a lot and I'm the one leading us in our homestead work so break it down in ways an ex so cal beach bunny can understand. I had the privilege of knowing my hard working grandparents but not the ability to experience their lifestyle.
Help me with your experience if I post a question and if you feel inclined, watch with amusement if you'd rather not, and thanks for reading in any case.
