Things have been pretty crazy with the work turned upside down. My heart goes out to the people of the Ukraine as they fight for their country against a big bully. My heart has been breaking and I have decided to dive in hard with getting a go-bag ready That I can carry on my own with eh needs for the kids. I worry if things go bad I won’t be able to get the kids safely to the shelter without a plan in place.
As someone with high functioning anxiety, I have to get a plan in place if I am to work on anything at all. So I grabbed a backpack and started loading it with items from around the house, ordered some inexpensive Emergency Food Bars to make carrying rations easy, and took a trip to the dollar store to find some odds and ends to fill out the kit. This is smaller and only covers about 24 hours in supplies but is small and easy enough for me to carry so it is just perfect for if we need to seek shelter.
Not only do we have to think about preparing to incase things get really bad in the world we are also healing with prices that were already on the rise skyrocketing leaving more and more people without everyday needs.
The cost of gas has gone up and broke $4 a gallon in most places. In turn, even the cost of the kid’s favorite salad ix they eat like chips has doubled. I went to the fruit market to get the stuff to make my own mix for them to munch on and the sot of everything is up while gaps that are not normal there even back at the start of covid exist now.
