Warmer weather! Sunny days! Rainstorms! With everything wonderful about spring there’s something I always forget about. Whether it’s making sure we have enough sunscreen or the right clothes at the right time, there’s always something that goes awry in my spring planning. This year I’m hoping to avoid any last minute trips to the store by being prepared before the sun comes out regularly and Addie is begging to play outside and in the puddles from sun up to sun down.
This year I was super prepared for winter, I had gloves, coats, hats and even a super fancy sled AT THE READY. Only winter never really came and the sled is still sitting out there, brand new. But! Had I not been prepared with everything the snow would have dumped and we would have been stuck inside mitten less and there wouldn’t have been a sled to be found for four counties. I also take credit for no real natural disasters as of late, I’m stocked on water, food rations and anything else that may be needed in the event of a weather related emergency. (You’re welcome and knock on wood.)
Here’s 10 things to double check around your own home before spring has really sprung.
