We are back. It was a pretty fun camp out. For the most part. The kids had a blast. We grown ups played "Settlers" most of the time. I never slept very good. But that is to be expected for me.

I wish I could write in more detail but too many family member read this! But to sum it all up, it was mostly fun!

Bry and I went and saw the baby last night. He is now 5 lbs. and 3 oz. Doing great.

I think the older us girls(me, and my sisters) get, the more bitchy we become. I don't know if it is old age or just being more set in our ways. I'm not pointing fingers, I am no different really than they are, but it bothers me. I also don't like the fact that I recognize that I tend to be lazy, and compare my situation to theirs. I don't want to feel like a defeatist but I think I am sometimes. Bummer.

All in all, growing up is hard to do. I can't stand being around negative people who complain or gossip all the time and yet, I find myself doing it once in a while. I guess it is all about becoming a better person. As far as becoming a better person, I don't know if I am growing in that direction but at least I recognize my faults. That is a start!

I'm back- I feel like I have been gone for a month. Rather than a week and a half.

I have to apologize for missing Show Boat. I didn't get back until way after you had left, and I am glad you found someone to take my place. We had car issues on the way home.

Secondly, after having just gotten back from a family camp out for over a week, I think I can somewhat identify what you are referring too.

Isn't it hard?

I'm glad you went.

I am so proud of you, sis.

I think you're strong and brave and I don't think you are lazy.

I think you are passionate. The things you are passionate about, you'd walk through fire for.

Don't berate yourself-

There are always more ways to look at a mirror than head on.

What I admire most about you- is that you look-

Some never do-

They are not lies, either- It is the very truth.
