I think everyone’s gone to bed. Matt and Hemy disappeared early in the evening. The rest of us sat around the campfire and talked and laughed. It’s been a good day. It feels so good to not be the one making all the decisions. I laid in the sun. I went swimming in the lake. I collected pine cones. Don’t know why. It just seemed like the thing to do. Lots of girl talk. We all talked about the men in our lives. I learned some very interesting details. The guys actually came back with something to eat. Although, I doubt their story about the one that got away.
I think my parents would be proud that I haven’t given up on life. But it has been so hard. I try not to dwell on the bad things and I try to enjoy the good things. There have been good things. Lots of good things. This vacation is a good thing.
See you tomorrow
