Feeling good!

John and I have really felt the pressure to get our food storage together. We've been buying extra rice, flour, and sugar when we have Costco trips and yesterday we went to the Cannery for the first time and had fun putting it in cans and canning some of the things the cannery has to offer. We have made a goal sheet for food that we want to have saved that will feed our family for a year and we are about half way there. Some items we are finished collecting and some we still have a ways to go. The church has a sheet that you can enter in the number of people in your family and they will tell you about how much you need. Some of it was just not reasonable because seriously who can rotate out 75 cans of corn! Not us!

We have two more cannery assignments in the fall and winter and will just keep trying to build up our supply. It feels good to feel like we are getting prepared for emergencies. Now if I could just figure out where to put it all since if we want to keep it all good we cant put it in the garage because it needs to be kept at a pretty consistent temp. Were shoving it under beds and in the tops of closets! Next house we build will have a food storage room in the garage that is temp controlled! We also are feeling GOOD because we are taking off for a much needed little break to Cali tonight! Johns boss was very nice and told him to take tomorrow off without having to use a vacation day (shhhh dont tell) So we have a long nice weekend planned in cooler Cali and we are so excited! Guess I better go finish packing!

We are sitting around waiting for Daddy to get off work and I was cruising around etsy.com. If you have never been its the best! My sis-in-law Lisa has a store called See Kam Rock, check it out (I have a link on the side of my blog). Anyway I just thought I would check if there was any BYU homemade things and I came across this...I was cracking up. Is it in good taste? I'm not sure but I do know that when BYU football starts in the fall of 2009 we will have a 9 month old crawler and I'm not so sure that I will be able to pass this up. Sorry if there are any U of U fans reading this but you have to admit its pretty funny! Co Cougars!

Way to go with the food storage. We had another lesson at church about being prepared and I always leave freaking out because we are far from that.

So, we've been trying to step it up a notch. I need to call the cannery and set up an appointment too.

Oh, and LOVE the onsie! We got season tickets again... goooooo Cougars!
