Starting to hate the term “prepper”

Starting to hate the term “prepper”

“Where are the prepping articles?” “I thought you were a prepper, but I haven’t seen any posts lately.” I almost starting to hate that term “prepper”. I dislike calling myself one because I know a lot of people could be categorized as a “prepper”, but would never think of themselves like that. They simply want to be ready for anything that could come their way. I feel the same. The term “prepper” gives people the connotation of some one who is…

Monday Update

I feel like I haven’t been here in awhile….oh wait, I haven’t been! I would like to say I have been busy and that may be true. I have discovered that my definition of busy is quite different from everyone’s definition. What they may consider busy, I just consider life as it is. Lately, though, I have just been really tired.
