Breakfast - 1 bowl of grits and a banana
Lunch - beef soft taco from Taco Bell ($.79)
It's hard to concentrate for any length of time on anything except food. I don't know how people with no money for decent meals do anything - study, work, exercise, read, have fun, etc. It's all about just making it through the day. I don't have to worry about my kids like I did when I was in college and on food stamps and like so many women do now. I only have four more days to go, and there are millions of people with no end in sight, who are permanently in this survival mode.
I have been thinking about green vegetables all day, and I wanted to get a taco, because it would have lettuce and cheese. I was in a meeting and by the time I was able to eat my taco, it was cold. I can't stand cold food, but let me tell you, even cold it tasted good.
I can't wait to get back to California. A friend told me that he knew a place where I can get greens for $.88 a bunch. If I am lucky I can find a ham hock to cook with them if I budget these last dollars right.
