With 2017 half way over, I revisited the goals I set for myself and am very happy with all that I have checked off my to-do list. My biggest goal was dental. The more I read about dental and the illnesses that are associated with dental problems, I knew it was a must. The children and I have spent hours getting everything done. Cleanings, fillings, wisdom teeth removed and the youngest will be getting braces. I opted for the Invisaline braces because if society breaks down, he will not be stuck with metal on his teeth. Classes: I attended two- AR academy and another class in civilian first response. I have a series of classes that start this month. I am hoping my up-coming classes will be as good as I hope. I signed up months ago and have been counting down with anticipation. I have continued to minimize my stuff. Getting rid of junk, looking for multi-use items and finding a home that is better suited for who we are, what we do without so many people living so closely. Next up is health. I made a pact with my friend. She is getting all her health related test, shots and physicals up-to-date and I have agreed to also. No sense in prepping if I am not taking care of me first. The kids will also be getting physicals and all concerns addressed. My older son will be getting shoulder surgery before the end of the year. Not really in the budget but it will not be getting cheaper so we are going for it now. With dental and health being so costly, my goal of trading in some guns to consolidate will have to wait. I have a plan and it will happen but it will be pushed back. So what about everyone else? Did you all have goals and a to-do list re: preparedness for 2017? Are things getting done or did other issues get in the way and you goals get shifted?
