yes! i do have a brain.

For years I've known I needed to get on the "food storage" thing.  It's always overwhelmed me.  But, for some reason, I decided 2012 is my year (go me!).  Maybe it's the whole increase of random earthquakes, tsunamis, global warming yadda, yadda.  Honestly, not to make light of these events....I want to be able to take care of my family, no matter the circumstances.   I know preparing is important, but I'm also not an alarmist. So, food storage...where to begin.  I decided to start by stocking up on things my family will actually use/consume/eat.  But, since I'm kind of an organization freak, I first had to make organized charts to keep track of all of these  things.  Problem?  I am super challenged on the computer.  Learning to work my way around a blog was major.....trying to create a nice, colorful inventory chart...paramount.  But, after only a short two hours this morning, success. Don't laugh, I know in the eternal scheme things, it doesn't sound very impressive.  But, I was pleased that I do have a brain that can still learn and create something more than a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  I was also reminded of a talk by Pres.Uchtdorf.  So, today I learned how to "create" some charts on my computer.  A small triumph for me, but it made me happy and feel capable.  

BTW...if your interested in doing the whole food storage thing,  there are a million resources, but here's one that I really like preparedldsfamily.

Tomorrow is Saturday....take 15 minutes and "create" are capable!!!
