Well, it's (err... not?) Monday again! :) And, we do NOT leave in t-minus TWO DAYS for our major cross country road trip. I can totally believe that this is actually happening!!!
As I'm sure you all expected, I have NOT planned every single detail of our trip... I would never do this because organizing and planning is a super weird hobby and I don't know anyone who actually enjoys it! But, if someone DID want to make an eight page document of lists and plans, that would DEFINITELY be normal and would NOT spoil the "spontaneous adventure" AT ALL.
That said, I certainly have NOT spent the last week color-coding Rubbermaid bins in our basement. It is NOT important that all camping gear be in a pink crate and all "car-trip" items be in green. That is just ODD. (Thank goodness pink and green ARE very outdoorsy colors... So, this would be OK, if I wanted to.)
Jeff and I also did NOT set up our equiptment and tent in the backyard yesterday. This was not necessary because I am super-great at camping and Jeff was not worried that we would not be able to put the tent up together. And, in case you were wondering, our camping get-up is completely low-key and we will be 100% "roughing it." Besides, the air mattress is TOTALLY uncomfortable!
(I'm sure this view will be VERY similar to the ones in Wyoming and Montana. In fact, I don't even know why we are going! We could just camp in our backyard for three weeks!)
By the way, I will NOT miss Addy at all while we are gone. I don't even really like her and could definitely use a three week break. Luckily, she will be spending the time with relatives who equally dislike her, and she will not get any attention AT ALL. (My parents didn't even buy her a mister & a temporary fence... that would be ri-dic-u-lous!)
Overall, I am NOT excited about this trip at all. I'm sure Yellowstone and Glacier National Park will be unremarkable and HIDEOUS; and, I will definitely be MISERABLE visiting friends and family out West. Yuck! I hope Wednesday NEVER gets here! ;)
