Busy as a Bee

Today I had to cancel our lunch-on-wednesday date so as to make up for my poor planning of this weel. I crammed an awful lot in, most of which is getting cancelled because I also scheduled our family camping trip this weekend. That trumps everything but the Mother Blessing this weekend, which is pretty important, hey! The sad irony, and what really bothers me, is that the Wednesday family was the preggo for Sunday, so that bums me out.

So today-tomorrow it is this:

  • finish the laundry
  • return library books
  • clean the bathrooms
  • put in the potatoes, romano bush beans and sunflower house
  • bake ahead for camping treats
  • store runs for camping supplies
  • prep camping meals and
  • load up the stuff for camping

I am beyond excited. P-daddy wanted this to be a just-us thing this time, which I am fine with actually. At first I really wanted to bring people along. The memories of the disaster from last year (disaster only because of the location, which none of us expected or could have anticipated), have faded and I think about the fun we had with our friends instead of the yuckiness. That's a nice happenstance.

I think we need to spend some time connecting as a family though, in a very low-ley manner. I like this plan all around, because I believe it will be a nice break for all of us. The work involved in camping is something P-Daddy and I both like to do, and the park, while awesome, is close enough to home for us to book it if need be. I hope the weather holds out. It's been beautiful lately.


  1. I hope you have a great trip. I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to camp with Mr. T. I sure would love to go camping, though.

  2. someday we'll go camping again...i just have to get over my PTSD from our last camping trip....

    bugs in ears and ER visits are not something i do well with.

    enjoy your trip! ;)
