I like learning new things. Things that ultimately help me become more self sufficient and independent. Not that I don't love to push the “man work” on to my husband, but there are things I need to be able to do. Like start a fire(Check out an article describing my first failure here), change a tire and tie a functional knot. What if I didn't have my handy-hubby and disaster struck?

Survival preparedness. It seems it is everywhere these days. Maybe I'm just more attuned to it now since I've become a “Monkey”. Maybe it is more prevalent. What ever the case may be, it is a good idea to have some idea of what to do in a dire situation. Mostly you hear about storing, canning, what to put in your “bug out bag”, etc. but what if you are stranded? I most certainly would panic a bit. I mean I am the woman who would have frozen for sure in a lovely cabin off of Lake Erie one New Years weekend if it wasn't for my husband who rescued me (and my brother and his girlfriend at the time).
