When The SHTF.....




Yep the title is right.... When the Shit hits the fan you got it and I don't want to be behind it :) .
So my family is starting to get ready for winter, we are closing in the back porch with visqueen plastic and once closer to snow or really cold weather we will put the plastic around the windows. I have already started my stock pile, I have emergency stuff like flash lights, sleeping bags, tent, hiking bags, and propane its small but its a start. I'm learning a lot of things from looking at a few new blogs and I'm a daily reader of TheEconomicalCollapseBlog.com, I knew the government was screwed up but WOW!. My husband resigned from the prison, he is no longer a Correctional Officer after the riot on his pod and only one other officer responded, well that was pretty much it! and I would rather have my man at home with me and the family then having to bury him and have a million in the bank... So hubby now works on Post at Fort Carson Army Base. My husband now has the title of Building Manager for the school on base, No its not a huge career change and its not glamour and glitz there is no pressing of an officers uniform anymore but there also isn't any 19 hour days and wondering if my babe will come home tonight ya know what I mean. I have decided that money can't buy happiness, it only buys more consumer crap we don't need and that I keep having to donate to goodwill. My new focus is staying a float and looking to secure my children's future as well as ours. So we are now officially what you call Poor folk not that we were rich before but there is less money BUT! we were able to afford medical insurance so for that I'm thankful because that was weighing on my mind when we decided he should quit the Prison. We paid $187.00 a month through the prison for the entire family that was medical,vision,dental,life insurance and disability for everybody! NOW we pay $359.00 a month for medical and dental with life insurance and accidental death insurance because my hubby hunts. So thats what is going on in my part of the mountains.... nothing exciting just a little bit of humble living and I am a better person for it.
Thank you to all my new followers I was so happy you joined me and I enjoy all your blogs and I'm learning a few things to :) God Bless you all...

I am Happy your hubby has decided to quit that job for Safety reason but he is better off that way, I do agree on the Insurance it to high that's why I don't have any at the moment until I can find some we can afford. Your also right about The Shit Hits The Fan because it has already started & is getting worse that's why we are preparing ourselves as much as possible.
