And we're off and running!

The agenda booklets are printed and we picked them up from the printer today. The cover turned out extra nice! It was copied from a coloring page I colored. It turned out way better than a copy on my printer would have. 

We picked up 160 bottles of water for Sunday! We must remember to recycle these bottles because in Oregon you pay a 10 cent per bottle deposit! So we will have a place to put the empties. (You Washington and other folks need to remember that when you buy beverages in Oregon.) (It's great for the environment. I wish Washington would do it.)

And the best part of today? I got to visit with my brother, Jerry, Anne, Ann and Jim! It was great. And tomorrow brings more family! 

Ta ta for now,

Nancy

Update On The Condition My Condition Is In

I have mostly recovered from my severe reactions to the 15 medications I was taking last week. I ended up in the Emergency Room on Wednesday evening and was told to discontinue those medications, which I was more than happy to do. I got an injection for the excruciating headache I had not been able to alleviate (with pain pills and migraine medication) and some medicine for the nausea and stomach pains. I did not get relief until about Friday afternoon. Then I felt like I had had a near death experience and came back from it! I was exuberant to feel halfway decent again!! I felt even better on Saturday and Sunday, and went to dinner at someone's house on Saturday night and another's on Sunday night!

Then today I got to ride in a wheelchair. I had an appointment with the doctor who prescribed all those pills to tell him I wasn't taking them, blah, blah, blah. Got out of the car and promptly fell when I tried to navigate a curb which was a little higher than normal. I banged up and bloodied my knee pretty good. Two nurses came running out to help me up and guided me into the office. They put me in a room right away, blah, blah, blah. Then after the doctor saw me he said to head to the ER at the hospital across the street for x-rays of my knee. Good news: it is not broken. Got a tetanus shot for the injury and was sent on my way. 

I WILL NOT MISS THE REUNION! (Dammit.) (I am hoping this isn't one of those "things come in threes, you know!)

Ta ta for now,
Nancy

Check, Check and Double-Check!

·      Here we go - a checklist for the Family Reunion:

  • Quarters for the showers at Barview Jetty Park
  • Sunscreen
  • Food for the potluck, which will be on Sunday. (Please note: we ran out of food before everyone ate last time. Vic and I have ordered 100 pcs. of chicken, half-baked and half-fried. (I know some of you will be half-baked, too.) (I can't help myself. I'm a Burnett.)
  • Wood for campfires. It is available all up and down US Hwy. 101 for $5 a stack. Higher in the stores.
  • Warm clothes and clothes for warm days. It's Oregon.
  • Camera
  • Lawn Chairs - you will need them in your campsite but those who aren't staying at the campground will need them, too, to sit around the camps and visit, on the beach, etc. We will NOT need them at the Community Hall on Sunday.
  •  If you have extra lawn chairs and have room, could you throw in a chair or two for our travelers who will be flying in? Thanks!
  • Toys for the dogs and kiddos.
  • Umbrellas.
  • Board Games
  • Ingredients for S'mores for your party (Dutch treat on the S'mores in other words.) Marshmallow roasting sticks or rods.
  • WHITE ELEPHANTS-please wrap them and note on the outside of the package if it is for a man, woman, boy, girl and also put age appropriateness for the children's packages
  • MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS
I really feel like I am forgetting something. I hope it's not too important!

Ta ta for now,

Nancy

Attention Family Reunion Attendees

In the campground you can have extra picnic tables delivered to your site for $8 each. You just tell them when you check-in that you want another and pay, then they deliver to your site. We are having two extras at Audra's site (S-11) for the crafting. Does anyone else want to have an extra table for a "Play Station" for the kids? I would put bubbles, chalk, coloring books, crayons, etc., there. Let me know, please, if you are willing to do this.

Also, all of us need to be aware of the campfire regulations. The county had been closed to campfires with a burn ban but I believe it has been lifted and campfires are okay right now. I will monitor that. It will affect our Campfire Sing-alongs and S'mores making activities. Sunday we have the hall so we could have a Sing-along there if there is a ban. We'll play that by ear. We can only have the hall from 9 a.m. til 9 p.m. so it has to be emptied out and cleaned by 9 p.m.

That's it for now. Please tell your fellow campers.

Ta ta for now,

Nancy

Out of the Office

I'm in combat: fighting the effects of the 15 pills a day I'm taking in an effort to get ... better? So, sleeping a lot, having a lot of headaches, tummy aches, body aches. I'm sure I'll be fine soon but meanwhile, I'm "out of the office."

Ta ta for now,

Nancy
