two words-girl's camp

so, for those of you who have been checking back obsessively, wondering where i am...sorry to disappoint y'all (i'm trying to incorporate this into my vocabulary...is it working?) but i've been in the all-consuming, wonderful though it is, black hole we all know as girl's camp. i know you're all jealous and i truly wish that i could've taken you with me, but alas, our stake is only so big. in fact, us leaders already outnumbered the girls by one. sad, i know, but since they all tuckered out at like 10:30 anyway, i guess you take what you can get. it was a stressful road leading up to the fateful week, as those of you who have had the "pleasure" of hearing me vent, can atest...but all in all, it ended up being quite the little success story. i was lucky enough to be joined by some really good buddies and the showers were usually accesible. testimony meeting only lasted 3 hours (for you ladies that have experienced this last night of camp, you know what this really means) and the food was actually pretty tasty. i remember a lot of chicken, but other than that, i've kind of blanked out on the whole thing. anyway, i'm back and i can't wait to check out all of your lives and see what's happening in the real world.

Re: "is it working?" - You could have used it even more in this post, e.g. when you said "i know you're all jealous," you could have said "Ah know ya'all er jealous."

Yikes. I'm a Mia Maid advisor and am so glad they didn't ask me to go. I was kinda worried. I have at least 12 Mia Maids though so that's just drama anyway. Glad you have a success story! You survived!

For a person who hated girls camp as a youth, I have to say I don't mind it as a leader. Granted, I wouldn't jump up and down screaming to go, but it's tolerable as a leader. Last week is the second year in a row I've gone as an assistant to our ward leader and it was a much better year even than last. Anyways, I'm glad you had a good week! See you soon!

Ah sweet girls camp. I went this year, but only for two days, one night. Let me just say, mouse trying to get into tent right above my head...AHHH, but couldn't freak out because I didn't want girls to freak out. I am pretty positive that you were probably the coolest leader ever.

You know, I always dreaded girls camp, but usually ended up always having a positive experience, even with the ticks, gross. Glad everything went well for you.
