Fri. Dec. 21, 2018 – another week gone, only a couple left

66F and less than saturated, but it feels really chilly, so who knows?

Nice yesterday and I got a few more lights hung outside. Hoping for more of the same today.

Prepping has ground to a halt for me. I did get a little bit of additional food, but all the rest of my time got sucked up by the holidays, rats, and kids. In other words, life happened to me. Which is the way it’s supposed to be- prepping supports my life, not the other way round. Sometimes I forget that.

At the same time, I haven’t been more concerned about the state of the economy since 2008. I really think this is the long overdue ‘reset’. I hope that things are different from 2008, but if anything, the problems of 2008 are still here, and many are worse.

I think we have enough of ‘down’ to call it a trend, and as more people say “yup, this is it” there is a self-reinforcing feedback that will bring it on. Not fun times. Further, everyone will be blaming Trump, and not the Fed policies that inflated the bubbles to begin with.

Well, more immediate things call…time to make breakfast for the family.
