Silver Liningness Sunday

I should start by being thankful about that rib thing from about a month ago. Remember? You DO remember don't you? Anyway, it is much better, and I'd put it at a 95% at this point.

And, as already mentioned, kids are all back to school, and I think I've gotten all of the first-week-back chaos out of the way. Forms and agreements have been agreed upon, checks have been checked, school supplies have been supplied...

Chaco finished his final phase of Master Drive today. So now what?

Magnum and I watched a movie called The Last Station. It wasn't rivetting. I'm not falling over myself to recommend it. It was entertaining enough, though. I only mention it because James McAvoy is yet another cougar crush of mine and, in my opinion, can do no wrong.

OKAY... in closing, I just want to give a shout out to our storage efforts from the last few weeks. Magnum and I think everyone should have at least a 3-month food supply if not longer (I swear, sometimes I think I married my DAD!). I've been working on ours, and it's lacking in some areas, but here are a couple of photos of it's current state:

Anyway, I'm thankful for the preparedness blogs I found to help inspire and guide me. Not to mention, they're FREE!

We've got storage, yes we do. We've got storage, how 'bout you?


  1. That is a lot of storage and a lot of organizing!!! We are WAY behind!!!!

  2. I would love to have a food storage supply, but the only problem is my son would think he was allowed to eat MORE because we HAVE more. Sigh.

  3. A three month supply? Guess I need to get to stocking up...maybe research the reasons, as you all have obviously done.

    Glad the school season has started off well.

  4. 3 month supply? I'm coming to your house when the Zombie Apocalypse arrives. But I applaud your planning and drive. Chance favors the prepared mind....

  5. We have no storage. About the only thing I've got a good supply of is Crystal Light Raspberry Green Tree drink mix. It's hard to find, so when I find it, I stock up. Not sure how much value it will hold in the event of a true emergency though.

    And I believe an official driver's license comes next for Chaco!
