Well this weeks Whatcha Find Wednesday I want to stress the importance of having a well prepared and easy to manage first aid kit.
The not too bad after math of me not watching where the heck I was going and meeting the concrete.
So the damage wasn't too bad, but, it bled for a while and was definitely sore the next day. In the process of searching for bandages I realized how unorganised our first aid situation was. We have boxes of regular sized bandages, bottles of peroxide, gauze, tape, athlete foot cream, alcohol pads, you name it all thrown into a box for the time being. It's good to have the stuff you need, but, what good is it if you have to dig to find it, if you can't find it because it was just thrown in a box, or scattered around the house in medicine cabinets. Not very user friendly. It got me thinking, what if I ended up gashing my knee a little worse or needed something immediately? I sure don't want to trail blood all over the house in the hunt for bandages. So this weekend I am making it a point to obtain a box or bag of some sort, go through the box and cabinets, and getting everything organised. That way if something happens down the road we can be better prepared. I guess this is part of the learning process, and sometimes things get over looked until you need it. Thank goodness it was something small that led me to this oversight instead of something larger.
We hope everyone has a good week and take a few minutes to check out the status of your first aid situation to make sure everything is where you need it to be. Till next time we will see you on the flip flop.
