Late last week, my husband asked me what I was going to do now that Day Camp is over for another six months. I wanted to say, "We're going to Disney World!" But, sadly, my volunteer's salary doesn't quite cover a trip of that magnitude, nor will my Staff Patch bring in very much dough on ebay. So, as much as I love Scouting, here's what I'm NOT going to be doing... for a week or two.
I will not intervene in any boyish squabbles.
I will not drench my fellow staff members with water.
I will not lug totes full of administration crap to and from camp each day.
I will not stress over anything. Not one single thing.
I will not continue my never-ending search for doughnuts.
I will not pester Jannine, my program director, at all hours of the day. (at least not before ten in the morning).
What WILL I do? I'll try to relocate "normal." I can't quite remember what it looks like. I think it may need to be redefined. After all, we started homeschooling right before the madness of Day Camp began this year. It's time to figure out our daily pattern, at least for the next little while.
Of course, I will also be swimming, sleeping, playing with the kids, and catching up on my million and one set-aside sewing and crafting projects that I really do want to complete... one day.
