The Great Outdoors Returns

Well, I'm back.

It took me about two hours of intense skin scrubbing and three loads of laundry to get everything clean yesterday. But my sinus infection had its ass kicked by my antibiotics, and I feel a sense of accomplishment from "roughing it" for a few days.

Some would hardly call our experience "roughing it", considering the cop and I came well prepared with chili, hotdogs, a stove with pots and pans, plenty of water, a teapot and coffee, marshmallows, cheese grits, sausage balls, a cooler full of beer, and a six man tent outfitted with three sleeping bags and two blankets just for us. But you don't understand how bad the cop smells after chili, beer, and no shower.

It was "roughing it" for me anyway.

I'm glad to be back, and I hope to have some pictures from our trip up for you tomorrow.

Note to Self: When planning a weekend camping trip with your friends, including beer and yelling at all hours of the night, it is almost inevitable that you will end up right next to a group of boy scouts. Hilarity ensues.

LOl- too bad the reviewer skipped you. As for my review, I'm only sad that it made me sound like I liked Miley. Poop on that. I do think it's pretty hilarious.

Franco - Aw. Yeah, even though I'm engaged to a cop, I have to admit sometimes they can be big party poopers.

CM - Yeah, they're going to be jumping on me this week. I guess they just reviewed us out of order. I figured no matter how scathing it was that you would still enjoy it.
