New Year's Challenge 2013

I usually don't do New Year's Resolution's because generally a goal set to start on Jan 1st fails 99% of the time. A good time to start any personal betterment is now, but in the tradition of the New Year, I will describe some of the challenges that I'd like to conquer. So, without further ado:

  1. Increase our families preparedness food supply to 6 months of long term storage.
  2. Get into better physical shape - diet and exercise. ( 182.2 )
  3. Get better organized in the home.
  4. Complete some long standing projects - Kitchen and downstairs bathroom.
  5. Reorganize our food storage into a better logical format.
  6. Get better grades in school ( 3 A's 3 B's last semester ).
  7. Go to the range more often with Sweetheart.
  8. Teach the kids new practical survival skills : outdoors skills, common sense camping
  9. Learn to bake better bread.
  10. Pick three skills to work on with wife.
  11. Be more consistent with the MRE Monday reviews.
  12. Improve our family's water plan. 
  13. Do a monthly review of each for the blog to hold myself accountable.
Anyone else have grandiose plans for the new year? What would you like to have accomplished this year?

Keep Right On Prepping and Contact Your Senator about the Gun Control Legislation - K

Quote about Gun Control:

" Cries for 'Compromise' have gone up- a word to which there is more than one meaning. When we look at the compromises offered, it seems more that are asking us to do so in the manner of a compromised bridge structure, or having compromised one's morals. What we want are more freedoms, what they want are less- yet we are expected to compromise, and get slightly less. And, for what in return? Isn't that how compromise works? Pardon, but us giving up what we want and they getting what they want isn't compromise on my part. Its concession to a tantrum" - Den of the Wolfman.

    Our big plans tonight consist of staying off the roads. In our own home, and around our fire pit. I am fixing an early dinner. Then making snack food later.

    And along the same lines as you,we as well need to improve our water plan.

    1. I hope to provide a few for you in the new year.

  3. I am still on number 3. Lol....making progress in spite of myself.

    1. Slow and steady wins the race. I'll root for you. RAH RAH sis boom bah, J-M-Dee can clean it all. There, feel better? Happy New year!!!
