Fuzzy's hamster was found dead last night.
It was not a good thing to have happen at bedtime, the night before leaving for Boy Scout camp.
Needless to say, it was a long night until about 1:30am. And, a very early wake up at 8am. Lightning, aka Tweak, lived a long life for a hamster. Their lifespan is generally, 1-3 years. He was about 6 months when we bought him, and it just was 2 1/2 years since his adoption.
A new hamster is in our future, I am sure.
Boy Scout Camp starts today. The boys and Hubby left at 10 am. This is the longest I have been away from Hubby and the boys, and they from me. :(
It is a weird feeling. I am sure Pumpkin Muffin will keep me busy, though. She already has two sleepovers planned, and is pushing for #3! Yikes! lol
Thankfully, with cell phones, and Hubby's Blackberry, I will have email from them each day, and will probably speak to them, too.
The wonders of the modern world we live in... you can always reach someone! Sometimes, that is good, sometimes that is bad, but for me this week, very good!
As for the bees... yes, we do seem to be being stalked, don't we? All the stings were at our town pool, and they are aware, but since the grass area is right next to the pool, and kids and adults with wet bare feet walk on it. We just have to wear our flip flops and be careful.
I will have camping updates as the week goes one! The boys are each taking classes Monday thru Friday, as follows: Citizenship in the Nation, First Aid, Camping, Archery, Wilderness Survival. And, Hammer has an additional class, Mammal Studies.
