DH, BIL, and SIL have been trying to get me to go backpacking with them. NOT going to happen. Middle of no where, wild animals, no bathrooms of any kind. How is that fun? What if there's an emergency and you're a 5 mile (or more) hike from any other humans?
Ditto pretty much all of that. Mr. Spring even picked out a tent that had a high middle canopy so I could sort of stand up if I wanted to just so I'd be comfortable, but we never used it in the 6+ years we've had it. Craig's List to the rescue and now someone has a super nice tent and I hope they actually use it.

Mr. Spring will do that backpacking thing and doesn't even use a tent, just has this tarp type thing you rig up with rope and a tree that he sleeps under. Him, his mom and her honey went on a backpacking hike on part of the Appalachian Trail and you want to know what part I played in that? I dropped them off and came back several days later at our designated meeting place and picked them back up.
Haha, we are more alike than I knew! I told them I'd do a few hours of hiking with them, but I'd be spending the night in a nice cozy bed. I don't need to spend the night in the wilderness to appreciate it. I can see all I want with a nice day hike.
I'm right there with you. I love hiking so much it's crazy, it's to the point that nobody wants to go with me because they know I'll drag them along the hardest trails for hours LOL but camping? No. I like to follow a long hike with a refreshing shower and my own cozy bed.

I always called hiking exploring, or playing in 'back yard'.

This shift is never going to end. I am sure of it.

With the number of party calls we had last night, I do not even want to think about tonight. I have a feeling many are going to wake up and start drinking in the name of St Patrick. Which means by the time I come in, they will be fighting.

Dear god. I have just walked downstairs at work and walked into the biggest, stinkiest wall of weed stank ever. Blegh! I feel sick and have a headache now. Damn smackheads. The rest of us don't want to smell that crap thanks!

I miss camping. We used to go a lot but the boys are well and truly over it so we never go any more. Just waiting for them to be old enough to leave home alone so we can start going again. Got to have toilets,showers and electricity though, I like some creature comforts! SO goes off bush camping, no way I'm ever doing that.

I love it!! The low was 45 last night and as a result the ride home was full of little creatures. I had to stop for a raccoon family crossing the road, in the typical turkey crossing spot. They were so cute.

Can you tell I am ready for spring? I'm excited about moths and raccoons over here.

I'm up to get to work by 10 because getting to work four hours earlier than scheduled is about the only way I can see getting out of the mess I'm in after yesterday. So, that will be 14 hours because I'm ever so hopeful that I'll get to leave at midnight tonight.
I want to shoot myself.

Why do people take toddlers to a winery? They're NOT happy and the people around them aren't happy. PSA: Nobody wants to hear screaming kids when they're trying to enjoy a wine tasting. I feel like Reese Witherspoon in "Sweet Home Alabama" when she says "You have a BABY....in a BAR!!!!!"

I'm so stupid this morning. "Do you want your receipt?"
*stare off into space for five seconds*
"Huh?"
"Do you want your receipt?"
"Oh, yes please."
Sleep deprivation y'all.

I thought this woman on the news was calling Steubenvile (rape trial), Stupidville, I was like...now this woman knows what she's talking about.



How about instead of giving women guns, just delete men from earth. I mean. Ugh. Stupidville is correct.

I am having one hell of a week. First I get a sinus infection like illness out of nowhere, didn't have a cold or nothing. When the worst of it went away after a few days, it was replaced by a few days of ravenous hunger. No matter how much I ate and drank I still had hunger pains like I was starving. After that, I managed to sprain my foot by sitting on it too long! And then I got my period.

Yesterday was tough. My kids had 2 birthday parties to go to so I spent the day very busy, driving around everywhere. By the afternoon I'm getting in the car and my 8 year old says 'wow mom, there's a lot of orange in your hair' I'm like, you couldn't have told me that while we were at Walgreens!

So, I guess I'm coloring my hair today.

So, a while ago I heard that if you leave the lid on a plastic bottle when you put it in the recycling bin, the entire bin will probably just have to be thrown away, because lids are often a different type of plastic from bottles.

Is this still the case? We go through SO MANY milk jugs every day at work, and we have a recycling bin that we put them all in, but people are always leaving the lids and rings on them. When I first started working there, I would take the lids and rings off before I threw the jugs in the bin, but one day my trainer saw me and scolded me for it, and made me put the lids back on.

Anyway, I was just thinking about this last night. We go through at least two very large recycling bins a day, and it'd be frustrating if all of those jugs were just being thrown in a landfill anyhow.
