Have Board, Will Travel

After our trip to Iowa, we’re realizing how renting a home, vs adjoining rooms in a hotel, is SOON on our horizon.

It’s very difficult to eat have most of our food in two smallish rooms with one tiny fridge.

Sure, we have a couple of coolers, and spend time repacking our ice and such… but the facts are – washing fruit shouldn’t be done in a bathroom sink.

I’m OCD, so bringing cleaning supplies is part of my packing list.  I clean and sanitize the room before the little are even let loose near the premises.  Just making sure all faucets, handles, remotes, light switches and bathroom areas are wiped down is part of my duty as hyper-cleaning parent.

(Of course NOW I learn that not letting my kids get into all of those germs adds to auto immune diseases…) SO which IS it?  Let them get sick, when they have compromised immune systems – or try to avoid it and make them sicker?  I’m so confused…

At any rate… There are a few things I’ve learned to pack to make our traveling and planning a bit easier:

Cutting Board

Dish Soap

Paring Knife

Ziploc baggies/Containers

Paper Towels (LOTS!)

Clorox Wipes

Clorox Everyday Bleach Cleaner

This makes it easier to prepare things, like apples for snack, or strawberries for lunch while on the road.

No excuses!  We have ways of eating healthy – we just have to plan ahead… Every time we don’t plan ahead, it’s TOO EASY to make poor choices.

“Commit to the Lord whatever you do,
    and He will establish your plans.”

Proverbs 16:3
