Yes, it's 1:00 in the morning. But Kurt's on call, and this is when I tend to be a night owl.
Okay, so I was reading my friend Emily's blog, and she wrote about how she and her husband had a camping adventure recently to get away from the stress and noise of TV, computers, etc. I don't know if it's just hormones, a weird mood, or a need for relaxation, but it sounded really appealing to me.
Now, for those of you that know me, you probably wouldn't consider me an outdoorsy person. At all. Me neither.
So, taking a cue from a recent Jon and Kate Plus 8, I figured out my solution: "Camping" in the backyard!!!
Think about it. Convenient location, and restroom facilities (that are clean and familiar) are right inside.
We could grill hotdogs on our patio and just hang out outside, then spend the night in a tent in our backyard. Speaking of tent:
We wouldn't need sleeping bags, because regular sheets fit, and we would just use regular blankets. I just think it would be fun to camp without technically camping. Is this not the most hilarious post of mine you've ever read?
Please don't tell me I'm stupid for wanting to do this or inform me of what camping equipment I need. I literally just want a change of scenery without technology, and it will make for a really funny story.
Pregnancy makes me crave....camping?!
