So what's my best summer memory?
It would have to be last summer. Yep, last summer. What was so great about a year ago (or there abouts)? I'm not much of a camper. My idea of camping includes a hotel room. Why? I tend to freak out that I've forgotten something along the way - like leaving my camera in the room, forgetting clothes or something else slightly off-kilter. Yeah, I'm a worrier.
Three years ago, we bought a camper. Actually, it's an RV. It's not fancy and it's not new. It's got a few years on it. Now, remember, I'm not a big camper. In order to go to a race, I was left in the camper with the tot. Tot and I are great. We have a solid relationship. But leaving the both of us in the RV could've been really, really bad. Yeah. Why? Although I know how to operate the appliances in said RV, along with the central air, there was also a good chance I could blow the whole RV sky high - like by leaving the gas on or forgetting to turn on the hot water before showering (I've done that, it's not pleasant).
What made this summer fun was how tot and I got to bond. Yep. We had to work together. We work together pretty well as it is, but if we turned on the hot water, he reminded me to turn it off when we were done. He helped me cook and kept the dogs under control. We laughed together and had a good time.
When Dh came to 'rescue us', it wasn't a big deal. Sure, I wanted him there. I love him. But tot and I had everything under control. The funniest part? DH thought for sure we'd blow up the camper, too.
Guess we proved him wrong.
