because I could easily list 20 reasons why I loath it-
muddy quarter showers,
needing to pee at 4 a.m.,
dirt. everywhere. dirt.,
washing dishes in a bowl,
and did I mention the urgency to pee when it's dark o'clock, and the potty is a bazillion steps away, and it's insanely cold, and...
but I can't be a hater...
because my family loooooooovvvveees camping.
So I suck it up, and take one for the team,
and discover there are a few not-so-terrible things about camping.
Outlets. I know, it's cheating, but this girl neeeeeeds her hairdryer worse than she needs a warm potty that's 5 steps away at 4 o'clock in the morning (if you're ridiculous like me I can tell you where the only camp sight west of the Mississippi with outlets is for a small fee).
Reading by lantern, flashlight, and headlamps. So cozy.
Playing together- card games, Farkle, Rummie Cube, Speed Scrabble.
And since we're at the beach, we HAVE TO grab a ridiculously delicious slice of PMH and a tee from PIZZA MY HEART for just $6!
These last two are the top reasons camping isn't awful-
Michael does all of the cooking on his father's old Coleman stove. ALL OF IT.
And he makes me S'more French Toast.
And S'more French Toast may just be enough to move me from being a hater to a lover of camping.
Do you camp?
Live in Peace,
