Prepared!


I designated yesterday as "get prepared day". We already had 5 72-hour kits put together...but they were over a year old. The clothes were too small for the kids and the food certainly needed to be changed out. So, after many hours of emptying out the old, shopping for and packing up the new, they are all FINALLY finished! I can now sleep more peacefully at night.
I had no idea what was involved when putting together 3 days' worth of food and clothes for a family of 6!!! And that is just planning for the BARE essentials. With all the little earthquakes we've been having, I feel like I've been given fair warning to get my act together. Yea! it's done (until April, when we'll go through it all again! ).

That is my project this weekend. I am completely freaked out by the earthquakes and completely unprepared!!! Good for you that you are ready.

You are amazing!! Way to get yourself together! Can you make sure to have an extra bag or two packed for next time we come to stay???

Great job, Kelly! This is our project for this weekend. Maybe we should consider ourselves lucky that we're having all of these "little" warnings. I might be calling your for advice!

seems like we are all on the same page. we'll all be in the streets with our backpacks from Target and raggy clothes on our kids...we're not supposed to put the good ones in are we?

Way to go! I have some backpacks with 2 liter bottles of water in them. That's it. Pathetic I know. I'll get started on those ... next week when I don't have to plan mutual or a lesson. I came out on Sheena's blog so it won't be long before she knows I'm a new stalker. Glad you are safe and sound after the big earthquake!
