Peace River Camping March 12, 2009

This weekend, I am going camping for the first time in probably close to fifteen years.  From what I remember of that trip, which was also to Peace River, it was a lot of fun.  However, we had around twenty people and we drank a *lot* of beer!  Ahh.. those were some good ol’ college days…  I love you, University of Miami!   ::insert cheesy 90’s flashbacks here::

Anyway, we are going to wake up at about 4:30 am or so, to be on the road to Peace River in Arcadia, Florida.  I am pretty excited, but a little worried.  I have heard that the trees have a lot of spiders in them, and if/ when you hit the branches, they fall into the canoe. 

Let me say this, I HATE spiders more than words can describe. 

I am hoping that we are going to be able to steer the canoe well enough so that nothing like that happens, but we’ll see!

There are only going to be five of us, which will be nice, but I was hoping more people would go.  As they say, ‘the more, the merrier’ right?  I am sure it will be nice and peaceful.  Maybe I’ll bring a book.  I am definitely going to bring my camera!  I’ll have to post the pictures when we get back. 

We have to go shopping for beer and some other small supplies when I get home tonight.  Not looking forward to that WalMart trip, but whatever.. It will still be an early night for me!  If I can get to bed by about 10, I’ll be good for the drive.  Or, I’ll just sleep in the car…  I haven’t yet decided.  Wish me luck!

 

EDIT: I know, it’s been a few days, but I will be posting on my trip shortly!  I had to recover from quite a few ant bites, a sunburn and lack of sleep.  But FEAR NOT! The post will be up by the end of the week!  Thanks for your patience.

 

Friday the Thirteenth and Valetine’s Day February 13, 2009

It’s casual day at work, which is nice.

People are dressed in red for Singles Awareness Day Valetine’s day, or in race-car driver wear for the Daytona 500 which is on Sunday.  We have to work on Monday, which I’m not thrilled about, but hey, it’s a job, right?

Anyway, the fiance is working today at noon.  I haven’t heard anything from him today, which bothers me, but I think he’s upset with me.  I’m not completely sure.  I hate when he’s mad at me.  I love him just so very much!  And with Valentine’s Day being tomorrow, the timing is horrible!  He has to work for most of the day tomorrow, anyway, but still..  ::Sigh::  Maybe it’s the curse of Friday the 13th!  I don’t normally believe in that kind of stuff, but it may be true today.  This is the first of THREE Friday the 13ths this year – March and November are the other two.  Hopefully March’s will go better! 

The home computer is still down, but I have a few things to try when I get home tonight!  Wish me luck!  If it does not work, I will probably not be able to post again until Monday, which kind of sucks because I have been in the groove and I have a lot more stuff that I want to do to the blog!  I have pages I want to add, pictures, links… All kinds of stuff for your enjoyment!  Well, the few of you who actually stop in to read this!  I am using a lot of exclamation points.  I must stop that.

So, no big plans for the weekend.  Computer work, maybe a walk here and there, laundry…  I may cook a few things as well.  Like I may have mentioned, some of the girls at work are getting together and starting the South Beach Diet next week, so I may prepare my casserole this weekend and bring it in on Thursday or Friday.

I guess that’s the dish for now…  I hope to be back in good spirits soon!  Getting the computer up and the man calm will help greatly!
