  1. Day 1 - The Plan

    by , 02-01-2011 at 11:08 PM
    Okay, here is the plan for February's home project challenge:

    1. One "dig in" kit for use if I get stuck at the house for an extended period of time. I am going to compile the kit with the anticipation of having no power (and, consequently, no water) for a week;

    2. One "bug out" bag to be left in a convenient location in the house, should I have to leave the house quickly (i.e, brush fire);

    3. One "bug out" bag for the office, ...

  2. Road Map for the Day - February 1, 2011

    by , 02-01-2011 at 11:20 AM
    Usual morning routine. Get my push-ups and sit-ups out of the way, get breakfast to everyone, get to work.

    At work, I have to finish one report, pull out some property to inventory, and write a draft agenda for a meeting I'm hosting on Thursday.

    After work, the gym (maybe, unless I get a walk in before that) and a stop at the grocery store for a couple of items. Then back home, dinner to everyone, work on my knitting, read a bit, write in my journal, then bed.

  4. Road Map for the Day - January 31, 2011

    by , 01-31-2011 at 11:30 AM
    Another sick day at home, so the plan today is to slowly get everyone their breakfast, then to try to finish my Valentine's Day project (three left) while getting lots of rest. Since I've got nothing better to do, I'll start packing for next week's trip, at least get the basics in the suitcase. I will also bring the cat trap out of the tack room and set it near where I feed my mystery cat, hoping to get him used to it, so I can trap him before I leave. I WILL SET UP THE COMPOST BIN! By then, I am ...
