Gearing up for camping

Time is running together here and I am busy trying to finish up plans for our trip to Gettysburg next weekend. I have most of the food bought and some of my clothes packed, but I know there are still a million things to do. All the things to cook with has to be gathered up and ready to pack and the food we are taking put in bags. I can't pack the fresh food until the morning we go and of course things I use daily like my frying pan and utensils. I still have to buy charcoal (I'm getting match light)bread, snacks and stuff like that. I wish I had more money, but I suppose everyone feels that way when they get ready to go out of town. Thankfully I get paid twice before we go, once this Friday, and then again next Friday before we leave on Saturday morning. I just hate having to wait till the last minute to finish up shopping. At lest I am not working much between now and the time we leave. I work tonight until 9, but have the day shift on Thurs, and Friday. I am off again this weekend, which never happens, but Saturday is my grandson's fourth birthday (where does the time go?) so I will be busy all day that day helping my daughter with his party. I lucked out and got Sunday off because one of the girls at work needed Monday off which was my scheduled day next week. She traded me it for Sunday which worked in my favor. I go back to work Monday, work Tuesday, Wed. night again and only work half a day on Thurs. and am off until June 1st. Yippee.
Now I just need someone to come clean my apartment. My ex husband is going to come in while we are gone and walk my dog and feed her and the cats so at lest I don't have to worry about them.I thought it was really nice of him to offer to do it. I think he is really only doing it because he knows my daughter is going on the trip with me and she doesn't want the dog along on the trip. What ever the reason I am happy. The dog will be happy and I won't have to worry.
