Camping!

Well, luckily this is the last weekend in a long while I have anything planned. I'm very excited to be done with things to do for a little while. I'm looking forward to a few weekends of me time where I can go to a park on a Sunday afternoon and enjoy the sunshine. Perhaps clean up this craphole I call an apartment. :) I know that all this is my own doing, and I do like to keep busy, but this has been ridiculous!

Tomorrow I pick up a rental car for the weekend camping with the kids. Who knew that if I charge the car with my AMEX card I am covered for loss and damage to the rental car. That's the most expensive add on insurance I got last time. Now I will only have to get liability add on. Very nice... and much cheaper. Tomorrow is going to be psychotically busy. I have to go to the Girl Scout office and get some supplies and exchange the damn vests for sashes. Apparently we want sashes now. Sigh. I also have to grocery shop for our trip, and gather up some more arts & crap supplies. I have to do laundry and pack up my own gear. I have to swing by the U to pick up our glue and other art supplies that I usually leave there. I have to pick up my usual brownie and feed us both some dinner since I'm not having the other kids eat at camping. And instead of working on that this evening... I'm watching Harry Potter & The Prisoner of Azkaban. :) Such a slacker I am. I can't wait though. We'll have a nice ceremony for the bridging girls. One more meeting I think and we're done for the summer!

Remind me again... where are you going camping?

Do you have to drive the brownies with you?

The secret to smores is burning the holy crap out of the marshmallows, and then sliding the burnt skin off onto the graham cracker.

Sounds morbid... actually I'm disgusted even writing it... but I seem to recall loving it incredibly :)

We're just cabin camping at Camp Long. These girls (well and families too) aren't really up for tent camping. At all. I'm hoping in 2 - 3 years I can get them there. :) I don't think we'll ever be the hike into the woods with an orange and 1 match and survive kind of camping troop. :) And I only have to pick up the one little girl whose father doesn't drive. I usually get her to go to the meetings too.

Editing note: The sentence should've been written thusly:

I don't think we'll ever be the hike-into-the-woods-with-an-orange-and-1-match-and-survive kind of camping troop.

Also, have fun with the girls!!
