The Practical Prepper and Ricocheting

I finally found it. I'm going to let you into my brain just a little, but be careful because things tend to ricochet around in there quite a bit.  I read a lot, mostly non-fiction,  and so my brain is quite the repository of random bits of knowledge.   Sometimes it's organized and other times there is no rhyme or reason to how all those bits are filed.

This year I made some resolutions. I don't usually make resolutions because I am perfect in every way.. HAHAHAHA I don't usually keep them but since I have some accountability buddies (you, my darling and intelligent readers)  I thought I might have a better chance of keeping those resolutions.  At least the blogging ones.

How to be Prepared on a Disney vacation

Do you know how to be prepared, even on a Disney vacation? Is it even possible?  I think so.
