Back on track with gratitude today! Just can't keep it up everyday, but I still try and find something even if I don't post. Well today I'm grateful for my new camper. That may sound materialistic, but allow me to explain.
We are a camping family. Granted we used to be a go camping and go hiking and biking and go, go, go. But lately just getting the camper set up so I could relax was pushing me way past my limits into the 'point of no return where you have to wait until the next day to get it back' place. We had one of those pop up campers which meant totally packing and unpacking for every trip and also having to set the camper up which is a lot of bending, twisting and getting down to ground level (catcher's squat; can't do anymore). Well I bought a new camper and it's a hard shell and all I do is pull up, my wife does the 'groundwork', hook up the electric and water, and I'm relaxing. it's so nice to be able to get into everything before you have to pop up the top. All the food and clothes and everything was already packed! No big plastic tubs to be unpacked and set up once the camper was set up. It was great.
Well we tried it out this weekend and it was awesome for me. I have not enjoyed a camping trip in a long while like I did this weekend. It was great and I'm loving it! I hated, hated, hated spending the money, but it was worth it. So add something BACK on the list of things I have/was ready to give up.
