I spend a lot of time "thinking" about things I'd like to do. So much time thinking actually, that oftentimes there isn't enough time left to *do* these things. Then I get all crabbed out and slothy feeling and start snapping at my loved ones with irritable irritableness. Yep. Just one facet to my overall awesomeness.
So, I came up with Mommy Camp. I chose some fun looking activities from the gazilion blogs by the gazilion amazing women who manage to think up great things and actually do them and then photograph and blog about them
Here's the text of the invite with links added if you want to try the activities yourself:
Mommy Camp, Part One, Friday, July 2, 2010

Official Camp begins at 10am in the dining room
Possible pre-camp activity for early risers (9am):
making a tin can lantern for the evening picnic
Hope to see you!
The day arrived and, although I was swimming in a haze of premenstrual desires to be ALL BY MYSELF and DON'T TOUCH ME, I did some shiva nata, channeled some patience, locked perfectionism in a closet, shut down the computer, and vowed to be in the moment with my beautiful, beautiful girls on a beautiful day.
Thank you Paul for having the hammers and nails
waiting on the dining room table for us.
