Whirlwind Week

I woke up very very early this am. I just stared at nothing and tried to process the week ahead. We are going to a Fall Festival on Friday to sell homemade play dough and soap from Girls' Club, then meeting with the girls to go voer our Bible Study on kindnes for the week. Then we rush home and go to Family Camp. My 10 year old has been in Cub Scouts since he was six and is coming up on crossing over To Boy Scouts and earing his arrow of light EXCEPT that he needs to go camping!! he has missed amillion campouts and this is the last campout and someone needs to take the poor kid!! His dad is working this weekend and can't get any time off because of the time off he took before the abby was born (he was 10 days overdue) and then for the hospital and extra drs visits. So here I am. Completely clueless on camping and with an infant, a two year old and two others plus Mr Cub Scout. What have I gotten myself into?

THEN we get back Sunday night and have to evacuate by Monday morning at 8am for the fumigation. I need to wash clothes and sleeping bags for that! I also need to figure out everything we will need. They say we can come back in it at noon on Thursday when they remove the tent....I dont know about that.

Nothing is my choice at the moment though--it realy is just doing the best I can and whatever I am capable of. Life is seldom ideal or what I would have planned.

The thing I cannot wrap my ming around is all the water that I am going to have to buy!! I guess techncially I always PAY for the water that we drink but this is a 3 day camping trip and then in the motel for HOW LONG? that could be a lot of water!!
