    How are you keeping sane?

    I had a thread I was going to post, but after reading some of these posts about Election Day aftermath, When to Deploy a Rifle, Obama taking away all of our firearm rights, world plunging into economic turmoil and a general SHTF scenario, I just didn't think it was relevant.

    What are you doing to keep up beat and sane with all this bad news coming out?
    Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.

    I just brought home another gun.

    That always makes me happy.

    Other things that make me happy:

    A fresh hair cut.
    My cats acting like goofs
    Banning Spammers
    Reading actual books


    All of the above keep me sane.

    I've been on an ammo stockpile trek.
    Can never have too much.
    Heck, it might just become a form of money in the years to come.

    Stay armed...stock up on ammo...stay safe!

    I read DC.com

    My life is already insane with 4 kids and a Wife that works part time in the evening everyother night, plus Taekwondo classes on Tue and Thu nights, mix that in with may IT projects at work and I'm already teetering on the edge

    I am always upbeat except on those extremely rare occasions when I get

    I am not a worrier I am a warrior.

    I mostly keep busy doing the things that I really enjoy doing.

    Well, I was going to say, "my husband" but since he didn't even list ME as one of his reasons to stay happy, he's off my list too.




    The only comfort I'm finding in anything right now is knowing that within days (literally) I'm going to be holding our son. All else just kind of fades in comparison.

    Don't watch the news or open anything in the mail that's financial related. Focus on being thankful for a healthy family and a house that's paid for.

    Actually, deleting posts puts me in a bad mood because it generally means that someone is acting out of turn.

    I hate the fact that I have to delete posts.

    Thanks for totally killing my "New gun buzz"




    J/K



    About killing my buzz.



    I really do hate deleting posts.

    I'm at Ft Riley, KS for pre-deployment training to Afghanistan, so my TV time is strictly limited (no TV, except for the DFAC/chow hall TV for the last month). I am happy to not be bombarded with ads, lies, and commentary from both sides. I'm focused on getting me and my guys ready to deploy...

    Sometime in December, after the lawsuits, we'll have our new President and Commander-in-Chief.

    Meanwhile, the family adequately prepared with food, water, clothing, guns and ammo...

    I Hope So!

    Sane? Why yes, just focus on what I can control or have an impact on, hold family close, and disappear into the woods for hours at a time.
