Monday Mania – 5.9.2016

The internet will not defeat me! Although, I must admit that I have been feeling awfully defeated over the last few weeks with the difficulties I was having here with the site. I was getting whooped by the internet.

I’m back though (seems like this has happened too many times) and ready to get Monday started.

There is nothing too exciting to report from my life at the moment. I am looking at a potential career change. I am praying that God’s Will can see me through this unpredictable time.

I was able to recently purchase a Smith & Wesson M&P22 which I am looking forward to being able to do some plinking with. It was a purchase that was predominantly motivated by the fact that I wanted a small pistol that my kids will be able to safely learn to shoot with.

That’s about it.

I hope y’all have a blessed week!




Strategies for Dealing with Those Who Aren’t Prepared – This is a subject that cannot be ignored but requires some dedicated thinking? I can’t say for certain because the individual situation may dictate; but, don’t ignore the fact that when everything is at it’s worst, people will do ANYTHING to take care of them and theirs.

20 Reasons Preppers Are Happier Than the Rest of the World – Just being honest here; but, I don’t think too hard about all of the ways that prepping has impacted peoples lives that often. This list of 20 things that make a prepper’s life better is fairly insightful and worth reflecting on.
