I tried to upload some pics for ya. For some reason, wordpress isn’t cooperating 😦
Just a quickie. I’m on vacation and aside from the mosquito bites it is heaven. I gotta eat some garlic or something.
My fear quickly dissipated with all the setting up work and I was ecstatic to finally climb into bed….Until the thoughts started.
I was thoroughly exhaustified and wanted nothing but sleep. I laid there for 2 hours with the ‘the dingo ate my baby’ syndrome, but thinking about bears.
Last night was better, it was only racoons. Still took an hour or so.
Off to get better bug spray and eat breakfast.
Some words of wisdom
I will be 20 soon. (Getting old arghhhhh :P)
Here are the 20 things I have learned about the world.
- Nowadays education is sold.
- Being smart does not make you a good person.
- It is better to be a good person than be smart.
- Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
- Most people talk more than they listen.
- The secret to failure is carelessness.
- You can’t have everything.
- Never depend on other people; be independent. Always.
- If your parents are not there, no one will look after you.
- We are all alone in this world.
- People like to talk about themselves.
- A smile does not need a language.
- Life is not like movies.
- Money talks. (I know it is a bad thing to write, but in the world which we inhabit, money matters a lot)
- Humility is lacking in the world.
- Those who gossip with you, will gossip of you.

Before our white brothers arrived to make us civilized men, we didn’t have any kind of prison. Because of this, we had no delinquents. Without a prison, there can be no delinquents. We had neither locks nor keys and therefore among us there were no thieves. When someone was so poor that he could not afford a horse, a tent or a blanket, he would in that case, receive it all as a gift.
We were too uncivilized to give great importance to private property. We didn’t know any kind of money and consequently the value of a human being was not determined by his wealth.
We had no written laws laid down, no lawyers, no politicians, therefore we were not able to cheat and swindle one another.
We were really in bad shape before the white men arrived and I don’t know how to explain how we were able…

A Facebook friend of mine just sent me a message reminding me that its not a good idea to advertise that I’m going away because would be robbers may target my house. Thanks for the concern and reminder.
So as a warning to anyone who thinks they might get away with that, lemme tell you a couple things.
My 26 year old son is NOT going with me. He will be staying home to care for our pets. Therefore, unless you wanna deal with a pissed off linebacker sized Scottish man with a short fuse, move along.
I have neighbors watching the house as well.
And lastly, there is nothing that great in my house. Never been one for expensive, brand name stuff, nor can I afford it. If you know me, you know that I am and have been broke for some time now. If I wasn’t, I wouldn’t live where I do.
I now return you to your regularly scheduled blogging.
Whew. 2 days of packing for a 2 week camping trip.
Stomach feeling better today but chest is tight from stress.
My bedroom looks like we are moving. Lol.
The tents and camping gear aren’t even here, its all in storage. We organized that all last week.
So a quick trip to the organic food co-op and a trip to storage and we can lock, load and hit the road.
I managed to not lose it and hide under the covers again. Yay me!
Now I get to go to one of my favorite places on the planet, back to my birthplace, where I didn’t get to grow up. I soo love it there..
Maybe I will unwind from this tight ball of nerves that I’ve been lately.
Thanks to all that have been putting up with my drivel lately.
