Who Says I Don't Know How to Camp?
The night before Jeff left for his business trip (remember the 83 degree weather, gone so quickly?) we decided to sleep outside in a tent. This was my second "camping" experience, if you can believe it. I'm not even sure you can count the 1st- I was in grade school and my friend Sabina and I slept in a tent in her back yard, but went inside when it got too cold.
I wasn't going to let this fate happen again so Jeff and I "camped" in style...Queen size air mattress, electric blanket, all 4 of our pillows, a lamp, his laptop (to watch Last Comic Standing), running water... It was GREAT! I actually had better sleep than I do in our own bed. Why didn't we think of this earlier? Now the weather will turn, by the time I get back from SoCal (I'm meeting Jeff next week) and we most likely won't have anymore outdoor adventures. The electric blanket was key, so maybe we can still pull it off.
Next summer we've vowed to sleep outside whenever our upstairs becomes unbearable. Wouldn't it be fun to have a group camp-out? Bring your own tent, extension cord, and blow up mattress. We'll provide an outdoor movie and some popcorn. August 2008!!
I'm starting to get sick..I hope I feel better before the Puyallup Fair this weekend. Has anyone gone this year? Anything I shouldn't miss besides the obvious- scones, funnel cake, gyros, elephant ears...am I the only one that goes to the fair for the food? It's been years and I'm looking forward to showing my "recently moved to Seattle" friends just what it means to "Do the Puyallup"!
