This past Thursday I turned in my manuscript for the book that I've been working on for the past too-many months. Yippee! In honor of that immense accomplishment, we left for a 4 day camping trip to Deep Creek Lake State Park in Maryland. We canoed, hiked, had yummy camp food and slept in tents. My husband and boys go camping with the Boy Scouts all of the time but it had been a few years since our family camped together. It was great to be together, just the 4 of us, especially for me after a summer of big deadlines and too much work! We did have some rain but we managed to find some other things to do, like visit Smiley's Fun Zone and Candyland, USA!
I highly recommend a getaway like this after completing a huge project! I feel completely reset, refreshed and ready to move forward with new things. Well, after I get through this big pile of smelly camp laundry! :)
