Camping Awesomeness

Awesome camper you can pull with your car called the Cricket Trailer. This would be a great choice to replace our late Sidekick, God rest her soul, who perished in a tornado last year.

Urban Campout, for indoor "camping" in the dead of winter (or the dead heat of a Green Country summer). They have games, rooftop "drive-in" movie projector, popcorn, "campfires," fake plastic trees and astroturf...all the things I need to get back to my days of Samoas and bepigtailed badge collecting...along with a kickin' stereo, dance floor and BYOL policy.  We are totally doing this for my belated birthday this year, once I recover from protobaby, of course. There's only room for 20, so if you want in, 411 me. 

And finally, I am relentlessly daydreaming about luxury camping at a place like this fully-outfitted UK hidey hole with its cedar-barrel sauna and fresh local food to the point that I am tempted to ditch the London flat rental idea altogether:

Busy, busy!

It takes a special kind of magic to be a writer and mom, run a writing center and teach college to boot. Add to all that my new project, and I am plumb wore out! So super glad we get a ten-day vacay at the end of the month. Where will we go? Somewhere awesome, somewhere TBA.

In the meantime, meet the new Owen.

Cute little sea monkey!
