Camping... Me...Really?

     We're going camping today. (crickets chirping)............How did I get myself into this? I'm such a pushover. I have no spine. I am way too nice and just can't say no. (did I mention the ten kids).
     There are no showers there or flush toilets. It will be like the dark ages. Pit toilets! Pit toilets? Haven't we as a people evolved past pit toilets.  What if a bug bites my butt while I'm going?  What if there are snakes?  What if a snake bites my butt while I'm going?  What if I get bit by a snake on my butt while I'm going and I have to be air-lifted back to civilization and I have to have all the doctors examining my snake bit butt?  They all will be blinded by my butt's whiteness and then I will die because of the snake bite on my butt.  Who will take care of my kids?   
     There should be a law that all campgrounds have to have flush toilets and showers with hot and cold running water. I'm not against camping, I just think it should be done in a RV.  I honestly don't know what the hubster is thinking.  It's like he doesn't know me at all.  He keeps talking about being together as a family and the great memories the boys will have.  Can't we sleep in the tent in the back yard?  They'll remember that.  I'd even be willing to make bear noises at two in the morning just to make it seem more genuine. 
     And if I have to go why don't the teenagers in this family have to go?  There's not even electricity there. What will I do without Shiba?  It's the dark ages I tell you.  A whole twenty-four hours without Shiba.  I hope I can survive it. Pray for me.


  1. I feel your pain. I just barely survive my roughing-it family camping trip. But the grandkids were there, and the memories were worth it. Wish I had a way to avoid the butt bite fears, when I figure it out for myself, I'll share. Have fun.

  2. Funniest post you have ever written, I was LOL the whole time.
