Happy Camper

I'm going camping for the first time ever this weekend! (In fact, I'm blogging when I should be loading up the car.) I'm actually fairly terrified of sleeping with nothing between the great outdoors and myself but soft tent walls, but I guess there's no time like the present to conquer my fears. Also, I love hiking so I'm looking forward to doing some of that. The best part of going out into the wilderness this weekend is that the wilderness is going to be a lot cleaner than my apartment. The charm has struck again! My entire bathroom is being ripped out and replaced because the tub (and a concrete slab that was inexplicably poured below it to level out the floor) has apparently been sinking through the rotten wood below it. Our handyman has expressed wonder that I didn't fall through the ceiling and die. Awesome.
So anyway. Camping is probably less scary than bathing in my house.
Wish me luck!


  1. Ooph! The great outdoors... Happy camping?! Will the bathroom be finished when you return?

  2. Sounds like our bathroom. The tub is definitely going to fall into my kitchen one day.

  3. You should be back by now. Camping is very popular in Arkansas and I've been a few times. I find that the key to success is to realize that you're not going to be as clean camping as you would at home. Also, bringing an air mattress for your tent is pretty great.
