Life in the Ozarks

Life in the Missouri Ozarks of the past was hard. Life in the present day Ozarks still is.  A new local blogger has decided to share her experiences in a blog entitled “Broke Broads in the Boondocks”…

Hi. My name is Meghan and I have a problem!  No, I am not an alcoholic, but a financially challenged

individual. I am married and have 3 wonderful kids who are my entire world.  I live in the middle of
nowhere Missouri, if anyone ever wants to know where the Boondocks are, I will give you directions.
I was recently approached by my friend to start a blog and talk about being broke all the time. “What
the heck, I already do that as it is”. Therefore, here it is…
 
I have been poor, broke, lower class; whatever you might, call it my entire adult life.  I do not blame anyone for my circumstances; I just deal with the hand that has been dealt to me.  However, I definitely do not do it quietly.  I do not believe people who think that a person can change their destiny or improve their lives by simply wishing it to be.  I have worked hard my entire life and have very little to show for it. But I have a roof over my head and my kids are clothed and fed and to me that is a lot. I love my life, but I do not love all the financial hardships that I have been through.  I feel like I am a poster child for those get out of debt commercials.
