REAL Camping




Very soon the family and I are going camping again.

I have written posts about our yearly summer camping trips.

We always stay in a little cottage
                                     
                      

It has a bathroom


It has a small kitchen


It has airconditioning.


The Hubster hates it when I call it camping.


Soon we are off on another little camping trip



There will be no
                     



we'll sleep in a
                  


The bathrooms are far far away from the campsite



And if I have to go at night I will risk my kidneys and bladder exploding rather than running into a bear in the pitch blackness.

We will have to cook everything outdoors

There will be bugs...lots and lots of bugs. And this realization makes me yell out into the universe...


                        "WHO THE HECK THOUGHT OF THIS STUPID IDEA???"





and the universe yells back...



                              "IT WAS YOUR IDEA,  YA MORON!!!!"




And the universe would be right.




It was my idea.



My son ( who has a face like an angel) has wanted to go "real" camping for a long long time.


How could I say no to an angel face?

So, very soon we will go camping

and the worst part of it all.....

                                            It'll be on my birthday weekend.


 I am doing this to make my son happy


So, if it's true that what goes around comes around and good deeds are rewarded


Then that means that I should be winning the lottery any day now.

    1. The 22nd.....I'll be 30 years old! Ok I'm lying, but it felt so good to write the number 30!

      I have never been "real" camping and I really hope that the weather is a bit cooler so that there aren't as many bugs.

  6. Oh my goodness, Joanne! You definitely should win the lotto for doing this. I don't think I could be so kind. I would happily send the hubby and the son packing on their own. You are a very brave lady! Hope it goes better than anticipated. :-)

  10. We used to go camping when the kids were little. We bought a pop up trailer. I told my husband that unless it came with a toilet he would go by himself. We bought a small portable camping tilet to place inside the camper. They are inexpensive and are great for nightly bathroom needs. They come with a chemical. Check them out - oh yes, my husband did the emptying if he wanted me to go. We had so much fun camping I know you will too. Our campground had squae dancing and lots of other fun things to do.

    Check out the camping toilet
