I came home to this in my family room.











No shit! A shitter 20 feet away from the kitchen.


And then my husband saying, “Did you see what I bought you today? See! I do think of you when I go shopping.”

Ok, now to be fair, we did just get back from a camping trip.



We tent camp. I refuse to buy a trailer… even though Darrin would give up a year of me making dinner just to have one. But I live indoors so when I camp, I want to sleep outdoors. I know! A tent has four walls, but ours has a netted ceiling so I can see the stars at night. I’m not moving into a trailer. Except for the bathroom issue. I may have mentioned a few times during our campout how nice it would have been to have our own bathroom while camping.

And waaalaaah! Essential camping gear parked out in my front room.


Here’s my next thoughts.  I changed thousands of diapers when our kids were babies.   I’m not changing the diaper on this new baby!

 (just one more random camping shot because my dog and daughter are such studs!)
