There could be a camping trip in my future. There may be a tent involved. I truly thought my tent camping days were over but . . apparently not because that little girl in MO wants to go camping and she wants Granny to go and as you’ve probably figured out, I will do anything, within reason, that she wants to do. The debate right now is . . what is the definition of “within reason”?
When we found the house that we’re interested in, Vince and I decided that while I’m in MO, I can go look at it. I talked to Chad to see if he would go with me. It’s about 4 hours from his house. He said yes. Then I said . . maybe we can go on a weekend and Addie and Nicole can go too. Yes, he thought that was good. Then, I thought . . by the time we drive 4 hours each way, eat, see the house, it’s going to be 10 or 11 hours and that’s a lot of time in the car for one day. I discussed it with Vince and since he’s pretty sure that’s the area he wants to live, I said “I think I’m not going to go with Chad. When I get back, you and I can go.” Vince said that was fine.
I called Chad yesterday morning and was telling him I didn’t think we would do it. He said “Oh, you now how much we like to camp in that area. I think we’ll take the tent, maybe leave Friday afternoon, and stay til Sunday.”
I said “Chad! I can’t get up off the sofa. How am I going to get up off the ground?”
Then he explained how much Addie loves camping, which I knew she does, and how happy she was that Granny might go camping with them so . . I think I may be fixing to go camping, unless the weather is bad, and you know how spring weather can be in that part of the country.
I was telling Vince and he said “That sounds like fun! Maybe I’ll buy a tent and go too!” Hmmm . . I’m not sure about that. We had a big tent but it was in Chad’s car when it burned. Besides, by now, it would be about 25 years old. I’m not sure tents last forever.
Of course, I’ll let you know what ends up happening.
