Autumn in Calgary is a beautiful season, but it can also be both short and unpredictable. It’s also the time of year when most of us put our RV away for the year and declare camping season to be sadly on hiatus. It’s important to know how to properly maintain your RV in order to keep it in good shape for when Spring thaw arrives. We’ve put together a Top 10 list of maintenance tips to keep your RV in good shape. Of course, always ensure you’ve read your owner’s manual for any guidelines that may be unit-specific. These guidelines are just a brief overview of some of the most important things an RV owner needs to take care of before winter hits.
Having the kids home all day long throughout the summer is both a blessing and a curse. The blessing is you have your kids home all day long. There is no rushing out the door to catch the school bus, there is no homework to be done and you can basically pick and choose how you want to spend your days. The curse? Somehow your home has been transformed into a total stranger right before your eyes. There are things strewn about the floor, the house always seems to be untidy and there doesn’t appear to be any structure.
"Mommy look for diapers? Mommy no find the diapers?” My bare-bottomed two-year-old daughter repeated this soundtrack of questions as she followed me through a maze of boxes and stacks of bins. I balanced my saturated five-month-old on my hip as I peeked through bags, alternately berating myself for losing track of the diapers, and praying my sort of potty-trained toddler wouldn’t christen our new home with an accident on the carpet.
One of the things I love about Fall is pulling those favorite pair of jeans out of the closet back into regular wear. Pairing them with a great sweater, a patterned scarf, some bling somewhere and a pair of great footwear, you’ve practically got a Pinterest-worthy or Instagram #ootd post. I am no fashionista, but Fall really does bring out the best in my wardrobe: layers. When you take your favorites from your closet and think about incorporating similar principles into your décor, you’ve probably got a winning combination.
