By the time you read this....


By the time you read this, I'll be gone.

A full week away from computers, the Internet, and the blogosphere.....

Give me a second.....I'm getting woozy just thinking about it.

So, while you're reading this in your cool, comfy offices or homes, I'll probably be covered in a thick sweat. Partially because I'm spoiled to my a/c and partially because of my withdrawals from the conveniences of life.

Where am I?

Church camp.

I've signed up as a sponsor for our youth group at my church who want to go to camp.

Here's where I am.

And while I'm thinking this is going to be a really, really good thing....I'm still kinda nervous because of the extra expense and the being away from work (because I have this ego that makes me think everything's going to fall to pieces without me) and I'm worried about how much fun Ty will have when, it turns out, no one his age will be going.....there's just a list that could go on and on. I'll forget to pack something or I won't take enough money or something.

But I'm not letting that bother me because I'm a big girl, and if I forget something, I'll either make due without it or I'll go buy whatever it is so I can get by.

But I'm a woman and thus I'm a worrier.

But I'm also a Christian, and I'm also an optimist, and I'm also determined that this is what I need to be doing and what I'm meant to do. Too many obstacles have sprung up to try to prevent me from going to camp and experiencing whatever lays before me. Some would see that as a reason to stay home, to give up, to bow out, or to concede. Not me, I'm stubborn.

So I'm packing my bags, grabbing my camera (cause that really is the one thing I just absolutely can not do without), and Ty and I are off on an adventure.

And by the time you read this....I'll be gone.
