Memorial Day.....madness.

OK, it's a three day weekend, extra time to get stuff done right? wrong?
My kids have been out of my hair for most of the weekend and instead of getting a 
jump on all the chores around here I've been ....wait for it... relaxing!!!!! 

Yeah, the queen of making the most of situations and squeezing everything into the 
time without kids has been chilling and procrastinating all over the place. 
I have taken a lot of pics this weekend which has been so much fun but then having
to edit them is a chore... a chore!  Although I have to say most of them don't really
need much more than a little crop here and there... cool. 

I snoozed through the Indy 500 yesterday, yep, snoozed on the couch with my
little shih tzu laying on my lap with me. How indulgent is that???
Peace and quiet... it's totally what I needed. I feel ready to take on the 
preps for our camping trip today. There's still a ton of laundry to do before we 
pack but I can do it, because I'm feeling good people, feeling good! 
The girls are SO excited and are ready to help pack up, I'm so happy
they are finally at an age to REALLY help with packing! So my friends, it's out
into the wilderness crowded campground we go. Hubby is worried we may
need a gun in case we come across a bear, hmmmm now he's got me thinking.
Just when was the last known bear attack in Chatanooga? anybody? no, 
didn't think so. 

We do have wifi at the cabin (I know) so I may post from there at some point this 
week, no I haven't had the forethought to prepare and schedule posts. I'm not
that good a blogger!!!! but you know that already. 
Have a great Holiday Monday and if you see a service man or woman today
hug them hard!!!! tell them I sent you!!!!!

A cabin? WiFi? This is not camping, Ally!!! Back in the day we camped on the ground in a tent in the hot or cold in sleeping bags. Anything we ate had to be cooked over a campfire. Yeah...just like I used to walk to school for 3 miles in the snow...bare foot.

Have fun!! i can not wait to read about it!!

Wilderness Camping to me is staying at the Holiday Inn without Wifi or air-conditioning. But you enjoy your vacation. I like Chattanooga.
