The Day Before D-Day
Saturday, August 17, 2013
Tomorrow we pack the car, travel and arrive at camp. The campers have dinner together and from then on it is go-go-go for a week. Today is busy as we get ready. I have a detailed list with everything that I can think of written down there. I'm not going to Zumba today or doing anything other than getting ready for camp. I slept fairly well last night. The new pain med didn't seem to work yesterday so I've gone back to high doses of Aleve. The new pain med. probably needs time to build up in the body but I just don't have the time to do that right now. Functionality is more important at the moment. And the Aleve does a tolerable job of taking away the worst of the pain and inflammation.
One of the things on today's list is to go shopping for some foods for the trip. All meals are provided but camp food is not exactly the healthiest. It is designed for the palates of even the pickiest of eaters.
I've been invited to stay at a house very near the campgrounds. I was worried about how I was going to handle sleeping in a cabin this year. It is stressful for my body because the beds are hard and I don't sleep as well as I should.
I probably won't do many of the activities at camp. For one thing, I'm teaching both in the a.m. and p.m. and will need to spend some time setting up for the classes. For another, I need to conserve energy. I have a team teacher who handles the crafts and activity portion but being able to be an engaged active teacher of the Bible lesson is my job.
I won't be logging into Sparks people for a week. There goes my consistency trophy for August! But we don't have internet access at camp.
