Have I ever told you about the month of May in our family? With my side and my Beloved's, we have a total of 10 birthdays and 2 anniversaries. Three of the birthdays are today, and another is tomorrow. And several of these birthdays are milestones as well.
This weekend we are celebrating my SIL's 50th and my MIL's 75th. Thankfully, this family gathering is just a short jaunt south, and is relatively low-key. Most of the family is camping at a small campground (we will go out Saturday morning and come home to sleep, then go back on Sunday). Thankfully, the forecast is calling for only a small amount of rain over the next few days.
Today of course, has been a day of preparation. I've done my grocery shopping, made a big batch of potato salad and made a dozen devilled eggs, made sandwiches for our lunch tomorrow. I'm trying to plan for my own snacking, while still having a few fun 'camping' treats for the wee-lings and my Beloved. I've put together a small smores kit, and have sliced apples and carrots ready to go into the cooler tomorrow. I am purposely not going to buy any wine coolers or beer, as I usually would for a weekend like this, because I know that will just undo all the work I've done this week. It will be hard enough to get my water in while we're out there, I don't need to add completely useless calories and sugar into the mix.
The car is mostly loaded now, except for the cooler. It's ridiculous how much stuff we need to haul just for a day out of the house. Laundry is done. My kitchen is clean... ish. It's been a long day, and I'm pooped. Tomorrow morning brings a blood donation (hopefully, if my iron is good) and then we hit the road. For now, I'm going to zone out in front of the tv a bit before going to bed.
