I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT CAMP!
So, it seems the initial nerves have worn off. Why “bulldozer”, you say? Well, Matthias shared with me today that he’s decided that’s what I am when I’ve gotten something into my head to do. For example, when we went to DC a few months ago, I got the idea to make travel binders for the kids with fun things to do during the trip. I may have gone a little overboard. I got binders, markers. Crayons, etc., and had an inch and a half worth of things to print out that I found online. He said that I forge ahead with ideas and don’t let anything stop me. Now the bulldozer is working on camp stuff. I’ve decided I want to have little gift boxes for the girls in my cabin. I already have cute little boxes, so now I’m thinking of things to include. Here’s what I’m thinking so far:
• Little notebook
• Fruit snacks
• Granola bars
• A couple feminine products
• A couple single serve drink mix packets
• A couple band aids, and antibacterial wipes
• Bug repellent wipe (was going to make some, but not sure I can get enough bottles, may still)
• A little message card (those 10¢ religious cards)
• And the Bible Study Reference card that I put together for myself
Of course, I’ll be counseling with another woman, so I’ll check with her to see if she wants to add anything. I just thought it would be nice for the girls to have a little something. I also like that the boxes are plastic, so they can reuse them. I’ll just have to watch my bulldozer tendency that I don’t get so much that I don’t have gas money to get there!
On a different note, I’m still trying to avoid HFCS (see initial post), and I know it’s the cheapest, so I’m a little concerned about how I’ll do at camp. Yes, I do better some days than others avoiding HFCS (sometimes you just need a Coke), but institutional type foods tend to be full of it (think school) and other things I’m trying to avoid to keep from getting sick. How will decide what to eat, what not to eat, and what to bring substitutes for (yes, we can bring food)? Sheesh. Maybe I should make an appointment with that dietician before I go.
