I'm a little jealous - my sister and her husband are looking at a house in Watsonville - about 12 miles south of Santa Cruz and of course it is on the coast. Right now I already hot and sweaty - and this is after my shower. I've been cleaning the house, vacuuming and ...well vacuuming. Right now, cool coastal weather sounds awesome to me. The aroma of the redwoods, not far away linger in the foggy morning air. I grew up on that! Reality is, my bones couldn't take it and my mental health. I need sunshine. I just wish the sunshine wasn't so HOT because I love to be outside.
Speaking of outside - I will be getting plenty of it at the end of July. It's time for our annual family-bonding weekend camping trip or "mom-likes-to-bitch-and-complain-and-is-no-fun-anymore trip."
Hey, I'm going. I can moan and groan if I want. Plus, I'm 60!
Char will be going - she doesn't know if she likes camping or not. So it might be fun to watch how she is. (Misery loves company) Now our type of camping is not at a campspot. We go into the National forest and pick a spot. As long as you have your fire permit, you're good to go. Foodie already has a few areas he thinks would be good. They are always WAY OFF the beaten trail, and you know what that means? No bathrooms. Oh we will bring our little portable. We dig a hole, and place the chair/seat over it. And that is our bathroom. How many ways can I say, I HATE THAT? Then we have to cover it with dirt. Just gross.
I just want to get it over with. All joking aside, I really no longer enjoy camping like that anymore. It's not comfortable for me. I do it because I love my family and this is what they want. I can suck it up, I guess for a weekend.
Sometimes loving people suck.
