Bless their hearts....

My kids are back to school today and they are BUMMED! Absolutely, completely BUMMED. Thats because they are the only ones back - all the other schools around here are out - Public and Private, but their school is back in....

Me - I am OK with it ;) I had a blast with them here - I got a TON of stuff done and I know they had fun, but its time to get back to the business of getting ourselves ready.

Its OK to take a break. Its OK to not think about things for a bit. Its OK to eat a GREAT meal out of your storage pantry and sit and talk long over food and wine....ITS ALL OK!

Its NOT OK to stay there. Taking a break is OK to recoup body and spirit. Prepping can be draining and I am not just talking about our wallets. It can be emotionally draining - what we are preparing for can literally suck the life out of you if you dwell on it and letting it become your focus, can work awful things with your spiritual and physical energy.

So take a bit to recoup your personal resources - your fortitude - your Spiritual strength - your 1/2 full mentality.

But dont spend too much time because there is much to do and time is short. And above all things, having a plan just about propels you forward....

Pray - Praise - Prepare....

Wise advice, Pearls. So many preppers have an aura of doom and gloom about them. Sometimes that includes me! ;-) This is especially true if I dwell on things I cannot afford to do or wish I had done better or sooner. We are all better off than the sheeple who are on a permanent vacation in the state of denial.

I just chip away at it, a little each day.

Pearls, send me an email to the-hermit@live.com. I want to send you a link. I am not an axe murderer or a cyber stalker, I promise. If your email is something I wouldn't recognize, put a line in it to help me make the connection.
