(this picture has nothing to do with the post, but I like posts with pictures. My kids actually stood still for 3 whole minutes while Dear Hubby took this picture, and 3 out of 4 were smiling. That is quite a feat at our house!)
I just wanted to let you all know that I haven't dropped off the face of the Earth. I am just down to five days until I head off to camp with all the lovely young ladies (ages 12 - 17) from church. You can read about it HERE. So, right now I am in the throws off finishing up the handouts for the dinner time devotionals, organizing camp awards, shopping for enough food to feed 34 hungry people for 3 1/2 days (On a budget, of course. I am the Tightwad Mom, after all!), digging all my camping equipment out of the garage ( kind of like digging for buried treasure), and generally adding more to do's to my list.....daily! My goodness, camping with girls is a lot of work! Apparently, they care if they change their socks, what their hair is going to look like after three days of camping, and they like to be entertained (whittling a stick and skipping rocks in the lake are NOT considered entertainment. (They much prefer crafty stuff and baking refrigerator biscuits on a stick over the camp fire.)
I also have to think of the crew of boys, Darling Daughter and I will be leaving behind. I must definitely make sure there is easy to heat up food in the fridge and freezer, clean socks and undies in their drawers, and enough toilet paper to get them through until I get back. I don't want them to end up on the neighbor's doorstep begging for a hot meal and/or a roll of toilet paper!!! I definitely don't want them turning their skivvies inside out for a second day of wear! Crazy men folk!!!
P.S. There are now 98 FABULOUS FOLLOWER here at Tightwad Central! I just have to say that all my followers ROCK!!!! You are the best bloggy readers......EVER!!!! Thanks for supporting all my frugal antics!
Wish me luck! I'm really going to need it. Surviving in nature isn't really my thing. I guess "That which does not kill us, makes us stronger".........unless you get eaten by a bear! Be back soon!
