We're so lucky - for now

Last night, Bub and I were momentarily glued to the TV while watching footage from last year's tsunami in Japan.

It was momentary for me because I was trying to make dinner. It was momentary for Bub because she just couldn't watch it for very long. (Plus, we didn't want the boys to see too much of that...). I could have watched it for hours.

As I returned to the kitchen, I reflected upon how lucky we are. We have the option of just changing the channel and watching re-runs of Friends or Big Bang Theory while people in Japan are still seeing the effects, staring at them everyday.

However, it's only a matter of time around here. We sit on a fault line, and the earthquake folks indicate that we are a few thousand years overdue for one.

Enter the lesbian survivalist, me. Ok, maybe "survivalist" is a bit much since I couldn't shoot a gun to kill a squirrel (but, I could skin and cook it). That minor fact aside, I'm serious about my pantry and my emergency plan, and I'm pretty sure I could forage my way around our area.

Where am I going with this? I don't know. I just know that I felt lucky (and prepared).
