The last week or two have been pretty hectic around here, as they are for most people at the beginning of the holiday season. For me, the extra tasks of the holidays are an enjoyment – a way that I relax and unwind after work. The problem has been that there simply is no time after work. Leading up to a big deadline today, and with an ever-increasing workload, the days at work have stretched longer and longer – from eight to ten to midnight. Yesterday was a fifteen hour day, and although M and E did come steal me away for some dinner for about an hour, she’s pretty much been with Dad for most evenings for quite awhile. Last night I heard the plan was to camp out, and when I went up to check on her I was not disappointed.
The reading den looked very cozy and was well stocked with plenty of books to read, and it looks like the camping theme carried over to the bed as well. I don’t know if you would consider a sleeping bag on the bed “roughing it”, but technically, few campsites are located next to a public library either so we can just look past these little details.
It sure looked like fun. Next time I’ll most certainly be roasting the marshmallows and leading Kumbaya around the campfire. I’m tired of missing all the fun.
