Trying to raise my kids the best I can

My Pandemic Plan

Not to be alarming, but rather to be prepared, I have created a family plan in case of a flu pandemic. There are three points of action. The first is a list of things to do now. The second is a list of things to do when the virus mutates and the third is a list of things to do when the first American contracts the virus. Governor Romney has issued a statement asking Massachusetts citizens to buy an extra days supply of food when they grocery shop. This was a very smart thing to do as the economy (and food supply) may temporarily shut down during an epidemic.

THINGS TO DO NOW
Find God-parents for the children who could take them in case we die
Write a will
Buy: face masks, hand sanitizer

THINGS TO DO WHEN VIRUS MUTATES
Stock up on: rice, chicken, fish, rice, canned fruit and vegetables, oatmeal, diapers, toilet paper, soap
Begin practicing extra cautious hygiene including wearing a face mask outside of the house, using hand sanitizer before touching your face, washing hands frequently.

THINGS TO DO WHEN AN AMERICAN CONTRACTS THE VIRUS:
Give my two week notice (Timmy can keep working, tee hee. My job is probably a lot riskier since I work with packages from EVERYWHERE).
Start homeschooling the kids
