I’m so frustrated. I work at a college and I’m teaching a course this semester, so right now things are crazy busy. And when I’m stressed and tired, I start getting migraines. Friday evening I prepared all my stuff for our Saturday hike. Then Saturday at 5am I woke up with all the normal signs of migraine, so I had to miss the hike.
This is several weeks in a row without any hiking, and I’m missing it terribly. There is some chance I could become an “outdoorsy” person!! I’ve been very environmentally conscious for years now, but I have almost no experience doing things like hiking and camping. Too bad I’ve missed out on all those years now that I realize how awesome it is!
I think being part of a Team in Training hike automatically signed us up for a backpacking magazine, and I’m so into it. The articles are about gorgeous places to hike (and do other outdoor activities). And they have pages and pages of product reviews – I find my mouth watering over the gear!
We don’t have a family vacation planned for this summer. Maybe we will do a camping trip instead. My significant other has quite a bit of camping experience and really enjoys it.
Anyway, I’m frustrated to miss hiking this weekend, and still worrying about the fundraising. Not a great weekend in the scheme of things.
