We're going camping this weekend. Not sure who thought up this idea (no, it wasn't me, I'm sure of it!) and it's raining. Now, camping in the rain used to be dreadful, back when we used tents. This trip is looking like it might actually be fun, although crowded, in our travel trailer. I threw "roughing it" out the window a couple years back - except sometimes we do make the kids play games instead of watching a movie.
We've got enough snacks packed in case we get snowed in for a month. We'd probably all kill each other before then, but at least we'd have snacks so we wouldn't wind up like the Donner Party. Some party that must have been... I wonder why they called it a party? Hey, the party favors were actually finger bits. Yum!
Ok, wow. Gross.
We were up late last night helping some singers rehearse for a funeral. The service was this morning, and yes, I've got very little energy left for this packing business, but I'm trying to make the best of it. Hopefully I've cried enough tears to last the weekend, and nothing will make me flip out. I'm prone to flip-outs when our family goes somewhere, because it's hard remembering six toothbrushes, 27 pairs of underwear, 48 socks and everyone's bedding. By the way, it's raining, so bring the boots and raingear too. This is FUN!
