At camp we have a night we affectionately call, "The Night That Never Ends." It basically is a night with event rolling into event from about 4-11PM.
Last night was said night at camp. I was fully exhausted by 4pm when I left work. I had worked a 7 day week and several of those days were over 12 hours. I came home and laid down for a few minutes but knew my body needed to work out so I sucked it up and got a work out in. As I was laying on the floor after my workout wishing the cooking fairy would make me food I debated heading back to camp for free and delicious food or just going to bed right then and there. I opted for the first option and put on some legging and a bandana(I was working on day 3 of no hair washing and working out-sorry people who saw me!). The plan was to sneak in, eat dinner and come home.
Instead I was talked into going to the opera(fun musical the program team writes and performs) and that rolled right in to the square dance so of course I stayed for that. Then campers headed over to the Carnival and after that I was sitting with some of my Work Crew kids so we hopped onto the basketball court to play a few rounds of knockout. Then I headed over to the carnival to check out the fun. I didn't end up leaving camp until 10:30PM.
As I was driving home I was so glad I had headed back up to camp. I got to see people doing what they love to do, I got to spend time with the high schoolers giving their month to serve, I got to play a little ball. I got to laugh and celebrate life! I came home exhausted but so thankful that I get to be a part of all of this!
