Dubuque, N. Booth St
I've lived in Dubuque my whole life. James and I have a combined 6 children ranging in age from 13 to 28.
I work from home for a Fortune 500 company and am also working on my MBA. I work for a Real Estate company but I primarily work with IT tools that allow my coworkers to more easily do their jobs.
We have just recently started "prepping" and I'm so glad to find a community that won't call me crazy. I love the description on the main page of the site and might refer people to it when I do a bad job explaining why I prep.
I hope that bad things never happen and that some of the things I've acquired never get used (though I tend to mostly stick to the philosophy of "prep what you use and use what you prep" there are some things, like my portable water filter, that I probably wouldn't use except in an emergency situation) but I'd rather have them and not need them than need them and not have them!
