Camping in a Monsoon
Not that anyone will read this, all of you being busy with the Boo Tour of Homes, but just wanted to let you know we're headed out. In the Cub Sweetheart. In the pouring rain. We realized we could squeeze in a little camping trip before I head to Texas to help corral my favorite little people while Addison has her surgery.
So even though it truly is P.O.U.R.I.N.G. rain, (note photo with pools of it running down our driveway...) and is supposed to maybe keep pouring rain for the next 48 hours, we're going anyway. We've got leftover chili burros (recipe to follow someday - guarantee you'll love it),which I plan to zap in the microwave, we'll pop a DVD in the laptop, and veg. And yes, we call this camping. The smart kind.
We may not get to hike, build a fire, make smores or any of that campy kind of stuff, but there will be no phones ringing (cell doesnt get reception where we're headed), no bills to pay, no solicitors trying to sell me something I don't want, no grass to mow, laundry, vacuuming, yada yada yada. There will be the two of us, snuggled inside our little 20 feet of heaven, and we may not stick our noses out the entire time. Because while we do still love time together, we just found out last night one of my best friends in the whole wide world is dropping off, in the next hour, the FIRST SEASON OF 24 which we never got to see.
We're not even taking the bikes this time - books, movies, fattening food, each other. That's about it.
Doesn't take a lot to make me/us happy. I'll visit the rest of your homes when I get back to mine. xoxoxo
