blog camp warnings


blog camp is drawing near and at the same time as i am really excited and impatient and wish it was now, now, NOW, i also know there are some things that aren't going to get done and so i'm here to warn you about those as follows:

  • the laundry room still looks as if a car bomb went off in it. 
  • there are a lot of weeds and generally ungroomed areas in our garden.
  • i can cook, well even, but will likely go totally scatter-brained and forget to serve half of the dishes i prepared. please help me remember to put them on the table.
  • there will probably be dust bunnies under the beds. (don't worry, we're quite sure they're harmless).
  • we're probably going to pull stomach muscles laughing.
  • i should have gone on a diet before you all came, but i didn't.
  • i may have to run off for 45 minutes on saturday to sabin's riding lesson because she's incredibly worried that her father (even after a training run today) is incapable of saddling and bridling the horse.
  • i haven't finished painting the closet doors in the fabulous ironing room upstairs, so that room doesn't look as cool and finished as the photo i posted may have indicated.
  • you may find out that i'm pretty much even sleeping in my new converse all-stars. (and have you seen stacey's new ones, by the way?)
  • you will be asked to paint something clever on a table.
  • you will be asked to spontaneously compose lots of balderdash definitions.
and in order not to scare off everyone who's coming on friday by plane, train, bike and automobile, here are some good things:
  • i've been making some fun little blog camp surprises this weekend.
  • some of the others who can't actually be a blog camp have sent some fun little blog camp surprises our way. (thank you!!)
  • i've washed all the bedding and so there are fresh sheets on every bed in the house.
  • i ordered a kilo of fresh shrimp and a box of gorgeous organic peaches, nectarines and plums which will be delivered on friday along with our regular veggie box from årstiderne. so it won't be all food that's bad for us.
  • my cleaning girl is coming right before you all arrive, so there is a good chance those dust bunnies will be scared into submission.
  • we're probably going to pull stomach muscles laughing.
  • husband has been practicing his pastry runs.
in all seriousness, i'm really, really looking forward to hanging out with all of you totally happening blog camp babes next weekend.  stay tuned this week for the schedule of online bloggy goodness...i'm going to try to play with stickam, but if it proves to be beyond me it's not working, we'll just use this blog space...posting and then "chatting" with all of you who wish you were at blog camp in the comments. ya know. like normal.

OK, am now even more green with envy. And feeling like a very un-worthy honorary blog camper for not sending something for the real blog campers. Oh, the guilt!

VEG--no guilt intended with the blog camp gifties thing!!!! was totally NOT implying anyone should have done that!!!!!!

Vancouver's Enviro Girl said...

No, I just feel bad that I can't come and want so much to be a part of it, but am obviously way too self-involved to have thought of sending something :)

Do you think I've had clean sheets or any fruit other than grapes (sort of) since I landed in Europe? I really am looking forward to not-musty smell, and fiber. Mean it.
