I have been cooking like a crazy woman these past 3 days.   Ghostrider Chili (chicken and green chili), hominy with smoked turkey, and elk stew... I've been washing clothes, packing bags, makings lists and checking them twice.  I even emptied my debit account to get the last minute supplies. 

It was 2:45 before they were finally on the road.  They called twice before they were out of town.  I hope I didn't seem to eager to see them off. 

And now, finally, silence through out the 2100 sq. ft. dwelling except for the occasional 'Woo Hoo!'  The place looks like the aftermath of a hurricane but I don't mind.

I ate supper early... some of the left overs from my cooking spree.  Then I showered, a nice long uninterrupted shower.  I lounged on the sofa and watched the O'Reilly Factor without anyone switching channels on me.  Even now I sit in front of the computer in just a camisole and my undies (not trying to be enticing here... trust me, there's nothing enticing about this scene!) smelling like cucumber and melon shower gel, and Aussie shampoo.   I am footloose and carefree.

I look like Medusa.

The Oompas have taken every single hair brush with them to the camp out.

I am procrastinating but I will eventually have to break out the Diamond brand super heavy duty plastic disposable fork and do my hair.

I should have known better.  Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Isn't it wonderful?  I had hot dogs and TWO sodas for dinner and now I am sitting in my underwear watching Music & Lyrics....why don't I get to spend MORE time alone?!!

Chopsticks might work too. LOL...I feel your pain. Really. I have long blonde fine hair..that knots in a minute so when I run out of conditioner it is a major no-no. No brush known to man could fix it...I am still laughing at the Medusa thing...Sandi

I tried that on my beard and even they keep breaking.  Oh well, maye a strong pitchfork?  Hugs from Paradise where nobody cares if your hair is combed or not.

Paradise without a brush LOL! I actually hide a brush when my daughter comes to visit. Inevitabley she always ends up somehow packing my brush with her things.
