We're planning a camp-out this weekend. In our new camper. :) We picked it up last week and it's just lovely. It's on the small side for a camper, doesn't have tons of storage, but for us, it's perfect. I'm a whiz at organization and packing in small spots. Got the bed all made up last night, and I'm so looking forward to trying the it out...I haven't been sleeping well at all lately. And if it's one thing I don't do well without, it's sleep.
We had hoped to go camping with friends, with our horses, but our hitch broke, then hubby got that fixed. Now, I can't find caretakers for the horses we'd need to leave at home, so no go. That is why I'm usually not a big planner. We never seem to know from one day to the next, just what we'll be doing, and when. Another benefit of aging is that I'm learning to go with the flow...don't sweat the small stuff and all that happy crap.
But we're going. Just changed our strategy and our destination to a much closer to home location. Still hoping to find someone to fill in for me on Monday at the clinic, or it will really be a short trip. It's always a challenge to take time off from work, but sometimes it becomes a necessity. We've been away from home once this summer, and time just keeps slipping by. Seems like all we ever to, is go to work, and then catch up on the work at home.
I enjoy completing projects and seeing accomplishments, but sometimes a person really needs to get away to really relax. That is where I'm at. Mentally, I'm at the point of breaking, physically I'm exhausted from lack of sleep and dealing with so many things at the clinic, and at home. Enough already!
Sometimes, you just gotta get out of town.
I will get to ride my horse tomorrow!! Hallelujah and happy dance!! I'm also planning on taking naps, reclining in my lounge chair with a good book and a cool drink. Taking hikes with my dogs...snapping pictures and get this. No phones. No computers. No people needing, needing, needing...
I'm hoping the weather remains cool, because time spent with the horses is always so much more enjoyable when it's not hot. If not, guess we'll play in the creek...
whatever, we'll just roll with it.
