LOL HAHAH What a weekend!!! Letting you know this will be long, but you can sigh, OMG laugh and all in one blog! LOL
Friday at noon, dh, dog and I set off to go camping. We were going to meet a person I had "met" on another losing wt site a few years ago. Also the campground we were staying in was run by a girl on that site and her sister was coming to camp also. so great weekend planned.
Off we went leaving the house at noon, trailer in tow. 32 feet long 8 ft wide. driving along we know the way to this campground but the GPS says go a diff way, so hubby said hey why not some scenic site we haven't seen. sure. well it took us downt his road that started out paved, went a tad narrower then no where to turn around a 32 ft trailer so we kept on going, gravel to grass to very very narrow. long story short - it was too narrow but we had no choice. so when we got to where it widened again, hubby started moving more than a crawl and I said STOP someething is hanging. well a tree branch had gotten between the awning rails and the trailer and tore off our electic awning and bent the rails. Hubby had to get out and put two lawn chairs on top of each other and stand on tip toes to unscrew them and get it off so we could continue driving. got to the end of the road and I recognized where we were, farther back than when we got of the highway! and a mess. okay we are upset as we have only used the trailer 3x it is brand new. so calming downa nd have to say hubby did very well.
on we go, get to the campground meet trish, get to the campsite back in have a problem as hubby is still argh. co camper helps thanks! LOL
we get settled then we spend a night listening to horeendous thunder lightening and rain. OMG the rain. but thankfully our roof is fine! whew.
Sat is nice hot and bright,we stay in trailer during the hottest tine as we have no awning to shield the sun lol our other friends from Ontario that we had yet to meet arrive. a great couple. so we visit and get to know each other. the other sister arrives and we all sit and chat. her hubby's band is playing there this weekend so we all go listen. great night.
then sat hubby is putting the man door on the hook so we can just use the screen door and smap it comes off in his hand. they are now made of plastic instead of metal. argh again. so we now have no way to have just the screen door open, no awing. later i make a good supper for him and decide i will make a salad and meat for me. so great, we go out and we have had the AC on in the trailer, so it is dripping on teh side as we havnt got the awning to catch it. we decide to sit on the picnic table. well he sat and then i went to sit and he went to stand and the entire table afell over. I fell on the ground with my supper all over the ground, my cooler which iw as so wanting to enjoy, fell all over me - sticky!!! but no calories LOL we wer so stunned and laughing so hard. but man what else.....
anyway i made eggs and ham and toast for supper, then we went and had a great fire with our friends.
arrived home safe and sound today! Whew. busy weekedn we just call it our mishap weekend. but at least the trailer is still usable, the insurance will pay, and dh did pretty good with it all.
i cant imagine what i have gained but right now I am saying its okay. this is life and this weekend was a blast and this week super busy with dd wedding ect. when I feel I can , I will watch what I eat and take care, I will still walk, and this weekend i walked this huge campground a nd also we walked dog a lot. so will do some but not beat myself up for gaining and not doing totally a fit into life plan. I just dont think I can figure it all out right now. tomorrow dr apt, then ei hopefully and then we leave for dd wedding. she is home today on the floor cos her back is so bad. fool wont go to dr.
anyway heres to a busy week, will try to get on, we had no service this weekend not sure what the other campground will have.
HUGS to all. enjoy my weekend with me! lol

What a fantastic day.We went to the botanical gardens this morning before it got way hot. Then to the wednesday farmers market where I got for my treat high bush Blueberries. They are my fav fruit. love them. We are back at the trailer and after eating lunch outside, we have the AC on and resting. We are going to the pub this eve for supper, more a tradition when we come to this small town that a need as we have enough food with us. Boy hate to think of weighing when I get home havent done bad but just not home walking as much etc.
We needed to go away and use the trailer as we were getting a tad frustrated wth summer off and sitting home. As I said trial run for the 2 trips in Aug.
I have been trying not to wonder about what the spec will say about work, I have to either have it off or at least be able to keep my vacation. anyway argh... not thinking of it, so CLEAR mymind. watch dh practise making the couch bed for when dad comes with us for the wedding.

We have a lot to learn about this trailer, but we will get there the more times we use it. Have to get things organized and find places for things before our big trip for the wedding, with dad in tow. lol
Had a good drive down, set up was great, and a good night and great sleep. NO aches or pains this am. bad belly still last eve but was gone now. Today we plan to walk around the old town we are visiting, shop a bit or maybe go to the gardens. We want to spread it out as it isn't too big a place. Perhaps the gardens today while it is nice an sunny.
Best get moving along.
I hope all are doing well. I will be doing lots of walking today! cya hugs
