Got to have a good freak-out post every once in a while, huh? What makes me smile is that each of you picked up on the fact that this chick desperately needed to get the heck out of Dodge for bit.
In a pre-planned (read: Providential) Cub Scout camping trip, we loaded up early Friday morning and headed to Far-Far Away. It was breathtakingly beautiful there. I couldn't have asked for a more gorgeous retreat, but the most awesome thing of all is that cell-phones were so far out of range that there was NO CHANCE of getting a phone call at 4:30 in the morning packed full of DRAH-MA.
I TRIPLE DOG HATE DRAH-MA. And that's all I will say about *that* because we had nary a bit of it this weekend.
Well, except for when my big warrior man got in touch with his wild side and killed a copperhead snake with a rock. ~sigh~ That just does something in a woman when her man saves the children in such a primitive way. After we were sure that he was good and dead, we fished him out of the river and put him on display for all the impressionable little Cubbies to see. Because that's what warrior princesses do when they are proud of their man (this ain't Girl Scouts, y'all). My good buddy Caroline has some awesome pictures that will be posted at some point either here or on her blog for your viewing pleasure.
I want you to know that we thought of you, bloggy friends, as she was holding my arm which was keeping me from plunging to my certain death (of a heart attack) into the river on top of the snake. We knew good blog fodder when it was given to us, and we were willing to sacrifice life and limb to provide. You're welcome.
Until then, here are some other pictures from our excursion in the great outdoors:
This is where I had my quiet time yesterday
**By the way, I can't see the toolbar at the top of my page to add links and pictures, ect., and I have no clue why...Anyway, here is Caroline's address, but you will have to copy and paste the old fashioned way: http://myincompletethought.blogspot.com/
