A' Camping We Will Go
You'd think OCD would have a picnic with me out camping. But actually it doesn't. Not anymore. I remember a few yrs ago Bruce and I spent a couple of days in a cute little cabin in the Algonquin area. Ocd ran that holiday. It was brutal. And I was INSIDE most of the time, not out where the dirt actually is. Thank goodness it's not anywhere near that bad anymore.
I will be fine until next Wednesday when my parents arrive. Then I'll see how it goes. I have told myself a story that my parents have mice in their basement/ house. My dad will be bringing dried flowers and picture frames *probably* coming from somewhere in their basement. So far i've told myself that any mice living there are probably feasting on a pile of wheat they have stored down there, so they are 'clean' mice, with no disease. I could probably ask my dad if they have mice, but if he says no, i won't believe it anyway, so what's the point. But why worry about something that's not going to happen for almost a week?
We are also taking the 2 dogs, so that will be a little stressful for me until everyone settles into a routine. We bought a huge tent; no more falling over the mattress, trying to get dressed. It's the biggest tent we've ever owned. I also packed a pile of books- can't leave home without those!!!. I prepared some meals already and froze them so i don't have to cook/ clean up so much.
We hired some face painters to come and paint all the kids and adults. It's our birthday presents to all the kids. 4 out of my 5 siblings will come with their kids. We take up a cul-de-sac and so the kids can run freely from one site to the next.
I hope all of you are enjoying your summer!!
