You are probably going to hear this several times over the next few weeks but my life is currently insane. I am so busy and I keep thinking I’ll get a handle on it. I feel like April got wrapped around my ankle and just drug me along.
Looking back at month three – we did come up with an evacuation plan. I don’t feel like they are solid and we need to sit down as a family and really look at them but it’s a start. I had plans to write a post about shutting down utilities but it’s not going to happen. Thanks to a broken pipe this past winter, I do know how to shut the water off to the house and we know how to kill the electricity. We don’t have gas so I am just checking that one off and moving on.
I didn’t get around to even looking at our emergency kits. I know we need tarps and we have a tent but it hasn’t become part of the evacuation plan. I didn’t look at food.
As for home storage – we have a lot of soap. I like to make soap when I get a stockpile of grease. We have several years worth of soap in the cupboard but I did want to go over soap making. I promise, I will come back to this topic sometime. As for any food planning – didn’t happen.
But that’s okay because I can and will come back to it. Meanwhile, time to plan for Month Four. This month focuses on first aid which is a nice breather for me (if I can remember to post about it). I’ve been a first aid instructor for years so this is an easy month for me and I hope it has enough topics to help fill up posts for the coming month.
Non food items is more soap like items – Shampoo and Conditioner as well as Deodorant. If I can remember, I want to share alternatives and discuss them.
For food storage – it’s all about the storage (where on earth are you going to put this stuff) and something I have plenty of – legumes.
Sorry to be so off lately. That is the way life goes though – doesn’t it.
