The littles and their folks are camping in our back yard. They wanted to get a real camping spot but they had all been prebooked for the August Civic Holiday long weekend. Thus...our back yard. Yesterday and part of today it was cold, windy and raining and we were under a severe weather watch. They insist they are having 'fun'. There is hydro and water in the back yard as well as weeds and mosquitoes, the occasional skunk at night, bunnies and chipmunks and lots of birds that are early risers. Still, they insist they are having 'fun'. They can't cook outside so they are cooking in grandma's kitchen and washing their dishes in the dishwasher, playing games on grandma's computer, heating things in the microwave, watching tv and asking three million questions a minute. Yes, they insist they are having 'fun'. I am sweeping and wiping and tidying and serving and finding and........ I am NOT having fun. Okay, I lie, I AM having fun. Just don't tell anyone okay.
