Please tell me...

...that you have been keeping up with the news and, more importantly, what the prophet has been saying. I don't mean to be Glenda Gloomsday, but we really do need to be paying attention. It's just not gas that is going up in price and will have to be monitored.

Here are two articles listed on today's Drudge Report:

Japan's hunger becomes a dire warning for other nations

and

Food Rationing Confronts Breadbasket of the World (this was happening on the East Coast at various Costco's! Of all places.)

I have to say that I read this and packed up the girls after nap time and went to Wal-mart and did some more shopping--food storage is important, but it's important to get things you and your family will actually eat, as well as a few treats and some household necessities. I wish I had the money to stock up on diapers for O and New Baby while they are at an affordable price, because they are made from petroleum and will soon be much more expensive. sigh. OH well. We'll just keep doing our best...but I just wanted to pass this along to remind you to be doing YOUR best. :)

Remember you're already ahead of the game, because you have a garden (or will have). You have enough. You are enough. I'm stocked up too, but half my food is out of date. Woohoo. This is because I stocked up two years ago. Whoops. Time to evaluate.

But you know, I bless the journey.

Love you. Destress. Inflation and food rushes have happened before.

We always get through it.
