  • well, I am about to have my 5th child, and we are military, we have to travel thousands of miles every two years, plus we live about 20 mins driving from post, and my hubby has to be at work at 5 AM, he would have to leave by 3 am just to get there in time, and I cannot poissibly walk 13 miles to the closest store with a 7, 4, 3, and 1 year ols while prego, so that is just silly!

  • we live where there are no buses and the nearest grocery store or much of anything at all for that matter is about 10 miles
    there is NO way I'm taking a 20 mile hike for groceries or whatever...and NO I am NOT going to pay for a cab either
    our cars are paid in full so...

  • True this would be very difficult for some to do any walking at all to get food, I was there also in my first marriage, child life. But what I mean is isn't it strange how this country is so locked into it's own trap of oil, gas etc, and nobody seems to be changing any lifestyle ideas, (not that women can with children) but the ideas from scientists aren't made available or accessible or cheaply enough....
    That is what is mismanaged
