Planning my Demise
So, what are you planning over Labor Day Weekend? Me? Well, I'm planning on driving to another state and slowly killing myself. I'm trying to figure out why I thought this would be fun...but the trip has been paid for and I am now locked into going.

How am I going to meet my demise you may ask...badly I'm sure. With much moaning and whimpering. If I'm lucky I'll go quickly on an overdose of wine and aspirin.

The girls and I are going white water rafting and horse back riding on Saturday and Sunday or Labor Day Weekend. I have a fear of water, but I think I will be OK because the give you these ginourmous life vests. What I really think will kill me is my poor out of shape body screaming in protest at the abuse I am going to heap upon it. Then I am expected to drive home 5 hours on Monday. I told the girls we will be holding rock/paper/scissor tournaments to see who gets to untwist Mom from around the steering wheel every hour or so and make her walk.

I wonder if the people at the rafting place would give me back my deposit if I claimed another, more in shape, personality made the reservation? Somehow...I doubt it.

    Sky - I hope that's true. It's on my list of things to do before I die and hubby has no desire to do it. He and my son are going golfing that weekend with my hubby;s brothers. So I figured it was the perfect chance...may the gods save me from my own lunacy!

    Matt - Thanks...I'm really hoping it's not a self fulfilling prophecy.

    I have not rafted in a "real" racing rapid, so I shouldn't even comment.

    I'll tell you though, some of the best fun I ever had was rafting in Northern Wisconsin... hours of drifting and drinking our beverages, interrupted by moments of great excitement. (I was too young to know the feeling call "terror" yet!)

    You will have fun, and better yet, your kids will remember you doing it forever!!
