I'll tell you what is difficult: we had to go to food banks to get some emergency food supplies. The people were sweet and non judgmental. We were embarrassed to be so needy in spite of having given to such organizations many times in the past. We took the bags home, & looking at the expiration dates on the cans was a shock - almost all of them were either out of date (some by more than a year), or close to the expired date. I opened a box of saltine crackers to put peanut butter on them - the crackers had such a terrible taste I threw the entire box away. I made oatmeal, no sugar, no milk instead. I have one vote and it's going for Romney-Ryan. They've got to be better than Obama, anybody is better than Obama.
