I recently jumped back into the online dating world and the one common denominator of all of the men who post is their love of CAMPING!
If you know me, you KNOW that camping is not really my thing. My idea of camping involves a hot shower and flushing toilets. If I have those things, I can probably camp for a few days. However, I can't say that MY idea of camping is probably what most people think about camping.
My family really didn't do much camping when I was younger, but there are a few photos that exist but show us in tents in Yosemite with cots. Not exactly roughing it...
My sister, brother in law and their children are all about camping and visit Yosemite at least once a year.
What's most ironic is that I have all the gear to go camping: a sleeping bag, a really nice sleeping pad, tent, camp chair and a latern.
Instead of camping, I'd rather be in a plush hotel room in a fluffy robe, a glass of bubbly in my hands, and a spa appointment for a massage.
Perhaps Mr. Right can change my mind about camping? I'll guess we'll have to see ...

It's been nagging me that I've neglected you, my trusty blog, but I wasn't very inspired to write anything until this morning. I woke up a half hour before my alarm rang and just knew.
Two posts earlier, I was down in the dumps about shopping and how nothing fit. Yesterday morning, I put on a pair of khakis that hadn't fit in over a year and I couldn't believe my eyes! I was so happy that I told everyone at work! But the 10 pounds hasn't been without hard work. I tried a boot camp class and seriously injuired my back, which sidelined me from working out for a week.
I can see the weight loss in my face. I don't worry about taking photos at a specific angle, as to not get the dreaded double chin. And with the recent weight loss, I've discovered that I have dimples ... or that they've become a little more prominient.
I still have about 20 more pounds to go, which will put me at the lowest weight in my adult life, but I can't wait to accomplish my goal.
