Hubby and I made a difficult decision recently that will greatly affect our upcoming summer.
There will be NO CAMPING for us this year. It was a hard choice to make because Summer for us is all about the camping. We’ve camped EVERY YEAR of the 16 we’ve been together. It’s what we do.
From the long weekend in May right up until the middle of September is camping season here and we always tried to get out as often as we could manage it. Sometimes we went even if it meant stretching the budget and last year we still went the weekend Hubby lost his job.
Whether we’ve been fortunate enough to have access to a cottage or even if we had to tent it, there was never a time when we would have considered NOT camping. Until this year.
There’s just been so much insecurity this last year with Hubby being unemployed more often than not and so much work still needed on the house. It just makes sense to stay home and put as much money, time and energy into the house as we possibly can.
As much sense as I know it makes, it still sucks big time. And really, it’s not like we’ve decided to give it up altogether just this year. But boy I can already tell how much I’m going to miss…
