I am going camping today. With Aly. For Girl Scouts.
Thankfully, her troop leader is as averse to the outdoors as I am so if truth be told, we’re actually glamping, “roughing it” at Pali Mountain for three days and two nights. And since the majority of the days are chock full of supervised events, I think I’m really going to be in true chaperone mode; that is, I’m hoping I can let my hair down and allow someone else to be accountable for the little charges while I just smile and provide an extra adult presence.
Then again, I must remember Life Lesson #7: No expectations. So if things go awry or if they don’t pan out exactly as promised, then I won’t feel as let down as if I’d actually had high hopes for it. A fatalistic way of living? Perhaps. But Life Lesson #7 has saved me from severe disappointment and many a family argument so I’m just gonna keep on keeping on.
One thing I can anticipate safely, however, is the weather (if the weatherman is to be believed) and my wardrobe. And it promises to be a balmy 75ºF so I’m packing tees, light long-sleeved tops and shorts. Oh, and let’s not forget a hat. I’ve gotta protect myself from possible melanoma, right? Today’s OOTD should get me safely up the mountain, unpacked, and ready for the evening’s planned scavenger hunt and glow dance. Perhaps I’ll bring along a boyfriend cardi or my utility jacket for extra warmth and, of course, my trusty Chucks. Otherwise, I think I’m all set.
Summer’s here, folks! Let the games begin!
