August 9 Be Prepared
One morning I woke up and realized out of the blue that we had really no family disaster plan. None whatsoever.
I thought that might be true for most of our close friends as well so we set out to get everyone at least thinking about it, but really to rectify it. We all met for dinner, talked about the scope of what we could consider – from a major disaster to more likely extended inconveniences – we divvied up the research and we were on our way.
This weekend we had a big potluck followed by a review of what we’ve learned so far. The best part is that everyone is pitching in and playing to their strengths – it’s pretty incredible to watch.
Be prepared. You may never need it, but you will sleep better at night.
Today I am thankful
- for potluck and a network of loving friends.
- for the wealth of information that people share on the interwebs.
- for craigslist and the worm farmer (it’s a long story).
For what are you thankful?
