Stress Time!!! AAAHHH!!!

Hello, my 5 faithful blog readers! ;) Sorry I am a lame blogger right now, but I am too busy freaking out and working to do anything productive like blog. LOL... So I will give you a semi-brief update before I get to packing...

Camp was good, I was there last weekend for LIT (counselor training)... It was MUCH cleaner than at this time last summer, which made me very happy. The lake is still really high, but had dropped about a foot from the weekend before, so here's hoping that it drops down to normal so we can have our beach back (and go hunting for the missing pieces of dock - there are random docks scattered everywhere because the water got so high they went over their pilings!) I didn't do much at Camp, just kind of wandered around helping out where I could, but it was SOOOOO nice just to be out of Hell-Ay and into fresh air. I saw STARS for the first time in months! Man it just totally made me so happy! And glad to know I'm doing the right thing by giving up a cushy job to go run around with high-schoolers for the summer. :) Also we jumped right in and went on a pretty tough hike the first night, and I didn't die from lung explosion, so that was good too.

I got back Monday and went with Sara and her friend Lisa to see Sex and the City movie... thought it was pretty great - just like the show, but a little bit sappier, lots of laughs though!

Sadly, after that was the end of my fun for a while. I worked a couple night, now I've got 2 nights off of work to pack up my apartment before I do 4 more shifts and then leave Los Angeles immediately. Unfortunately I scheduled myself basically zero down time or wiggle room for things like packing or having fun before I leave! My best Camp buddy Michelle is going to fly down here and road-trip home with me... so it'll be nice to have some company on the long drive! We have to make a quick stop in Seattle so I can do a Wilderness First Aid course next weekend, then it's basically straight out to Camp with a one-night stop in Spokane to unload and reload my car. Ugh.

So, if you don't hear from me for a while, it's because I'm buried under a pile of clothes.

I like the preemptive blogging excuses. Nicely done sister. So Michelle is for sure now? You blogged it so it must be true! I wish I could be your road-warrior buddy, but sadly we had snow days and I still have three more days of school instead of getting to wrap-up today and go golfing. Oh well, that means 5 more days to get my grading done. It's not all bad!

hmmm, well still no plane tix, but she still claims she's coming so i'm giving her the benefit of the doubt...

i was beginning to wonder if you had ever returned to hell-ay since we hadn;t heard anything from you since you left in for camp.

can't you just grab the pieces of dock that float by and say they are Crotch's dock? I mean, they pretty much all look alike right? I am sad I don't get to be your road trip pal this time --- good times good times on our prev. outings. Remember you can always just give everything to "Out of Our Closet" (or whatever that crap thrift store down there is called) and start fresh with all new stuff! Can't wait to see you. Albeit very briefly
