Let me apologise in advance for the typo's. I just put on a new set of nails today because I couldn't take the ugly nails any longer and apparently I have forgotten how to type with them.
Well I got a new church calling. Let me rephrase that. I got an additional church calling. I still have my regular one in young women's. I am now the stake young women's camp craft director as well. Basically that means that I need to come up with a craft for 100 girls to do, make them into kits so it can easily be completed by them in less than an hour. Camp is 5 days long and I will teach the craft projects a couple times a day to small groups of girls. I also need to have smaller craft projects available for girls who want to come make something on their free time. Another big part of my job is camp decor. This years theme is "Like a Star", so I have to make things that go along with that to decorate the stage in the amphitheater, the walls in the lodge as well as table cloths and centerpieces in the lodge. (16+ tables) Plus each of the camp sites (which are groupings of TENTS) all need a little something to tie in the theme. I haven't been to girls camp in 25 years and it was in cabins then. I'm really not nervous about my responsibilities. It's a lot of work and I know I can handle that part. Actually I'm excited to see what I come up with. It's the camping part however, I am worried about. Can't you just picture me....a 40 year old woman with 80 year old body parts camping for 5 days and only being able to shower ONE time. Yup! Only ONE! Also keep in mind I live in Arizona and camp is June 30th-July 4th. I may not survive. PLUS I snore....loud! I have restless leg syndrome and I whine all night in pain while sleeping in a good bed. Who would want to sleep by me? I don't even like sleeping by me. After you're done laughing, could you please offer me some suggestions on how to get through this. And I don't blame you for laughing...I laughed when they asked me to do this too. I'm going to have to get myself in good shape between now and then and pray for strength. Trying to stay positive. I do feel lucky. I seem to be the winner of the Irish AND British National Lotteries several times a day.
Oh wait.....you get those emails too???? Sheesh! :o)
