Gone Camping!

I don’t particularly care for camping. The packing, the effort, all in order to not sleep all night in a tent on the hard ground. The lack of sleep kind of wrecks everything else. My goal is to try not to be cranky. Fun? Rest? Relaxation? Nope. At this point, I just want to get it over with because I’m already exhausted.

CAMPING UPDATE! We survived, and it wasn’t all that bad, despite the lack of rest. Since we went to a cowboy camp, the food was cooked for us and we didn’t even have to do any washing up, though the kids did have to serve food and clean bathrooms. We left early because we got flooded out. Yes, that’s right. It’s monsoon season in New Mexico. Getting flooded out is almost a guarantee. There weren’t any bugs, though–no mosquitoes, no gnats, and the campfires and music and great food almost made it all worthwhile.



  1. I share your views about camping. It is not fun to me. It is giving up conveniences I have come to appreciate and having to do things the hard way. I don't like bugs and I can't stand to feel greasy and dirty. If I'm going camping I want a 40 ft. Winnabego self contained. That's my idea of camping. God bless and get some rest, Bobbi

  2. Bobbi, I agree. I wanted the kids to have fun, though. Someday, I'll be able to afford a little camping trailer and there won't be any risk of getting flooded out!

  3. You have inspired me. Maybe I will survive camping in Alaska after all! Though, I must confess, I would be much happier if they could shrink a Hilton (complete with the Heavenly Bed and room service) to fit inside a tent. đŸ™‚

  4. Leah–Alaska? Really? That's way too far north for me! Good luck and God bless with that!

    Saumya–thank goodness I'm not the only one.
