Finally came to update things here. Really need to find the time to get on the computer. With the kids home for summer, there is just not enough time in the day. Plus, by the time night rolls around, I'm wiped. I just want to hit that pillow and sleep.

We've been doing alot of day trips. Last week, we finally tried camping. Dh has been after me for years to try it. And after seeing how much a room would be for a week, I figured why not. We invested in a rather large tent. Have to say, it wasn't that bad. Had nice weather and we had a great time. Such a good time, we came home and booked another trip at the end of the month. With my luck, it'll rain the whole time. That I'm sure will be an experience.

Would love to post some pictures, but haven't found my battery charger. Been taking some on disposable cameras. Now I need to get them turned into disks. I know when I do that, I will find my charger, let's hope!

To start getting back into things. I joined a couple of swaps. A Fall swap with Morning Glories and Moonflowers. And a Kiddie Halloween Swap with Polka Dot Moon. My 10 yr old is going to love to be involved in his own swap. He loves to get my packages, wait till he gets his own.

I'm off to get my day started. Have some major cleaning and laundry to catch up on. Plus, need to start getting my work station cleaned. It's just a mess with piles of papers and things to go through. Do you have an place in your home that things just pile up? Or am I the only one. ;)

Have a wonderful day!

Hi Susan!

I have yet to go camping myself. We were supposed to go last summer but I got pregnant and had our 2nd right smack dab in the middle of summer. Maybe next summer!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and visiting!

Oh yeah! I hear ya about the messes that pile up. I get that with my mail alot. I hate mail piles!!!

Oh, we missed camping this year too. We were just talking about it tonight. That we should go before the summer is over. Camping is NOT my fav. thing in the world. However, my son LOVES it. So we need to make a couple days out of it. It's ok as long asI have some comforts with me(like set up my tent like better homes and gardens(LOL)! I find it better to sleep in the tent with COTS. We use to use air mattress but was always COLD and DAMP. Getting Cots really really helped. Getting off the floor and elevating ourselves made it less damp. Especially if it rains. However, cots take up alot of Room but you can put bags underneath the cot. So you gain room that way.

I hope you post your pixs. Glad you had a good camping experience.
