My baby's at hoo!

I miss him already! I know it's only a week....and he's gonna have an awesome time....but....but...ok... I guess I'll be fine....sniffle.....

Chris's cabin is full of his friends from church. This week's theme for junior high camp is "Uncle Gil's Barnyard Fiasco". It will be interesting to hear how this entertained kids of this somewhat, shall we dare say jaded?, age. When we drove into Mount Gilead's long frontage road there was a group of young adults in barnyard costumes waving at the parents and their campers. Pigs, sheep, cows. Dude! It was pretty cute! Hope it's an awesome, life-changing week! I warned Chris's youth pastor about his sleepwalking...just in case.

Chris and I just got back from a camping trip to Manchester Beach. We had a great time, in spite of Chris having a juicy cold. We got thunder and lightning, as well as a touch of rain on the last night. Glad we opted for the cabin instead of a tent!

We saw a movie at the Arena Theater in Point Arena. What a great theater! It's been remodeled to be art deco inside and out. We were greeted by an older woman in the tiny ticket booth....escorted into the building by an equally elderly woman.....and purchased our consession snacks from what had to be a married couple. At least they bickered like one! Too funny! Wish we'd known about this place before! It was so neat! the way...we saw "Get Smart" with Steve Carrell. Pretty good! We love Steve Carrell!

It was a fun trip! I had to quickly wash Chris's clothes and repack him for camp today, then make the drive out to Mount Gilead. I'm pooped! I need a vacation from my vacation!

I know I haven't been very good about writing lately. I didn't want this blog to just sound negative all the time. I will be honest. Life has really been tough lately. I'm trying to walk the line of what is healthy for me to get out of my system, and what you, as my reading audience, would enjoy reading. The only person who seems to write back to me is my sister maybe I don't have an audience after all.

I still don't have a resume put together. I will admit to stalling. Partly because my crappy self esteem says I don't have any skills that would land me a GOOD job, partly because I can't face leaving my old job and moving on, partly something else that I haven't figured out yet. What am I to do with myself?

On another note....I have absolutely no idea what I'm going to have the kids do for craft at daycamp tomorrow! Yikes! Ideas? Anyone? Jude?

Hi honey, love your pictures. Looks like it was nice up there. I really enjoy you writing in here, so please don't stop. It's not just cause I'm your sister. I think you write really well. I think you should write a book!
As for crafts, Check out they look pretty good.
love you - J
Ps. write down what you did at work last year and you'll you have plenty of skills.
