Babe, I'm Leaving...

It's camping time again!  There won't be any bears around this weekend though...

Hubby, Hammer and Fuzzy are off at 3:30pm for a Boy Scout Camporee, until Sunday afternoon.  This Camporee is run by the New Jersey State Police!  The kids will be doing badges/studies about fingerprinting, forensics, bomb detection, ordinance disposal, helicopters, SWAT, firearms demo's, Homeland Security, SCUBA rescue, and more!  It sounds like a phenomenal weekend!

They will be camping in tents on the grounds of the State Police Educational facility, in Sea Girt, NJ, with about 5,000 total Boy Scouts, about 9,000 people total!  WOW!!!  Although the topics are awesome and right up my alley... Pumpkin and I will be home.

My parents are also going away to Upstate NY to visit with friends for the weekend, which means...

Pumpkin and I will be home alone... GIRLS WEEKEND!!!

Wooohoooo!!! 

However, Pumpkin has dance class, so we do have to work around that.  Can't party non-stop!  LOL 

Hubby took off today, so we could have some time together.  We went out for a nice breakfast, alone, at the diner.  Then, we ran some errands together, including stopping at Borders!  Yay!  I got a couple of books, and we picked up one for Fuzzy to read this weekend, and one for Pumpkin.  Hammer still has books to read from our last trip. 

I am looking forward to the quiet, and at the same time, I hate that I will be home without everyone.  Isn't that weird?

Our friends, Bob and Ilene, asked Pumpkin and I to join them for a late breakfast tomorrow, about 10:30am, at IHOP!  That will be fun!  Their son, DogBoy, will be away, so they just have their daughter home for the weekend, too.  Bob could have gone camping, but he hates it... and it more than happy to let my Hubby deal!  lol

I will be back later!  Hope everyone is having a great Friday!

be well,
Dawn

ps... Someone tell the Yankees that yesterday was NOT a day off, and today they better show up and play the game!!!!  lol

Ha. I read the title and immediately started singing the song. Ddamn you, woman! Now it's going to be stuck in my head all afternoon. And it's not even all that good a song. I much preferred "Beth" by KISS.

Beth I hear you calling
But I can't come home right now.
Me and the boys are playing
And we just can't find the sound.

Just a few more hours
And I'll be right home to you.
I think I hear them calling
Oh Beth what can I do?

Always nice to be able to enjoy your quite and me time, especially knowing your family is safe - I am strongly thinking of home schooling my son - could I ask you for some help in how you got started! Thanking you in advance and hoping this weekend treats you well. Take care of you and yours always,
Katie

Just enjoy your time with Pumpkin its good for mother/daughter days. I have not been paying attention did the Yankee stumble big time? I'm afraid to talk to Kenji then..lol..he will not be in a good mood.  Love, Sandi

No team I'm rooting for in the play-offs is winning.  NONE.  As a favor to you I'm going to start hoping the Yanks lose....that way they'll win.  You're welcome.
