Organizing stuff, ordering specialty batteries, re-packing the Winter car kit.
Doing my fitness workout, locating 'strike anywhere' matches.

Battery replacement, received my now ACR Solas strobe (yay, can't wait to compare with the military ones), and checked all of the winter preps as we are getting snow again.

I read your posts. Does that count? When disaster strikes, I'll be thinking, damn, Montanero has fresh batteries! Teacher knows where his matches are!

This week I went through our medical supplies to throw out everything expired.

I helped to build a shelf to organize our supplies better.

I'm building a four-month reserve of my prescription medications; I did not have them organized. Today after picking up at the pharmacy, I bought a plastic storage container to organize them. Except for my controlled medications which are in my fireproof safe, my prescription reserve is in the plastic basket.

At Wal Mart, I ran into a minor emergency of a different sort. I could not get home and my rescue had to be delayed. I walked across the parking lot and had an early lunch at Lee's Chicken.

Today I helped Mom organize her first aid supplies. Mom does not keep her supplies in a kit. Instead, she keeps them in her bathroom cabinet. Correction, she did have a small plastic container in the kitchen (which she never used) and a few loose items, a lot of which were expired.

After I threw a lot of the expired items away, there was a lot of self-adhesive bandages left, something she needed.
