of course! I KNEW once I finally decided on a job and took an offer TS would call me!!! Ugh. Oh well, everything happens for a reason.
We had a......interesting weekend. We left Friday evening and spent the weekend camping. I LOVE camping...I can't think of anything else I would rather be doing. We had a great time...unfortunately, I packed the camera but forgot to pack a memory card...so...no pics, sorry :( We spent Saturday four wheeling through the mountains. I was exhausted by the time we made it back to camp...every part of my body hurt. We ate dinner (a lovely homemade,campfire chili one of the boys cooked) and lounged around the fire for the evening. Ali was a hit!! Everyone said he was the ugliest dog they had seen...but by the end everyone loved him :) That's my boy!!
Saturday night I just about froze to death (sev stole the covers!!) but it was still nice to be in a tent under the star filled sky! We woke up Sunday morning and ate a big breakfast of eggs, grits, toast, and coffee warmed over the fire, YUM!! They also had fresh sausage which I tasted but I'm not much into meat, other than turkey and chicken. After breakfast we packed up and decided to ride a bit more before we left. BAD idea...I was hurting from the ride the day before, so riding again Sunday only emphasized my pain. Sev prefers four wheeling in old jeeps, but I prefer four wheelers...so we split up for a bit of the ride, but we all met back up at the end of the trail. After that we poured water over the campfire and said good-bye to the trees :( I hope to go back soon!!
I will try and locate a picture of the "restroom facilities" if someone emails me pics...it is HILARIOUS!! One of the guys actually rigged a toilet seat onto a hitch that they have hooked to the back of one of the four wheelers. They keep a roll of toilet paper on one of the handle bars...so when its time to...you know....you just hop on the four wheeler and ride off into the woods...hahahahahaha...this just cracked me up!!! I'm not prissy or girlie by any means...but I just couldn't bring myself to use that thing....it still cracks me up though and I'll try and hunt down a picture!! (of the four wheeler, not of someone using it!!!)
Sev has surgery Wednesday, so please keep him in your prayers. Unfortunately I start work tomorrow and I can't take Wednesday off, so it appears that his mother will take him in for surgery. I wish I could help take care of him, but I just don't want to take the second day of work off. He is having his 4 kidney stones broken up by a shocking procedure. His first surgery was with a laser. He also has gall bladder stones...but the doctor said he would be okay for awhile with those, so they are not going to remove that part just yet. Over all sev has been feeling okay...just ready to get this over with.
