Be Prepared

What is more important than having your water barrels filled? What would be the first thing you stocked up on in your storage?
If you are my dad it would be toilet paper.
If a natural disaster hits do not fear. My parents have a 2 and half year supply of toilet paper. Not even lying. 2 and half year supply. My dad bragged that it was 2-ply. Do you know what that looks like?? There is a mountain of toilet paper stacked in the basement. If it were to fall over it could very well smoother a small child. They can't fit it all in one space. There is some stacked in the pantry too. There was even a case sitting in the dining room for a time. (moved shortly after my arrival)
It seems that my dad is very concerned with having a clean hiney. He mentioned his purchase to the neighbors. Said there was no way that if worse came to worse that he would be forced into "wiping with grass." He may not have much to eat, but his bum will be comfortably cleaned.
For 2 and half years anyway.
Nice.

My sister in-law and I laughed about it all weekend. And my brother teased us both saying that "one of us should blog about it."(in a valley girl voice)

done and done.

My parents have a 20 year supply of wheat in there basement. I can't remember a time that they didn't have it. At least maybe after all that wheat they can borrow some T.P form Mike and Linda

Okay that is hilarious. I guess we all know where we are headed when a natural disaster hits!

Anna darling, I found your blog and my life will never be the same again. Mainly, I will realize that if I ever were to happen upon your pop, I should immediately surrender all toilet paper. Has he met the wet-wipes for adults? I don't know what they are called, but if he wants a REALLY clean hiney, he should stock up on those too :-)

Rena- you and I both know that there will be some "bartering" going on. There already is- Im sure.
Val- we laughed, and laughed. Wish you would have been up there this week. Me you and Carolyn could have had some fun!
Larissa- haha!! I will pass on the wet wipes for adults info. I'm sure he will be interested. AND so happy you found the blog! blog friends now-ok?

Oh my FREAK! Hysterical! This post totally reminded me of my dad growing up. And now *I* have to blog about it! Seriously, the stories are not to be believed. You'll have to jet on over to join in my childhood trauma :)

I agree with Sarah...if/when the big one hits, make sure you're clear of the stockpile. Could kill you, you know.
