Friend shopping around the campfire
SO in our new quest to be social, we are on the lookout for staple friends. We really are trying to put ourselves out there and find people to hang out with. We went camping with a bunch of LDS dental students on Friday night. That was really fun and a good observation tank for us to decide who we like and who might consider accepting us as full time friends. It is weird the way this school has selected its LDS students; they are all very similar. All of these guys that we went camping with are obviously very smart, but they look and talk alike too.
Loma Linda must just have a very specific prototype of what they want at their school. So, since they are all very similar to my husband, I really like all of them and their wives. Imagine that. Disclaimer: we are not only looking for LDS friends, it just so happened that this camping trip was with an LDS group. Anyway, we had a really good time. It was cold! But luckily we had zip together sleeping bags and our special heat rocks so we were warm even though it got down to 32 degrees. One of the guys there was an amazing chef and made dinner and breakfast for us. Camping is a little more complicated with a dog and baby than it is when its just the two of you, but it was still fun. E slept ok...sort of. I always think it is such a cute and charming idea to cuddle up next to my baby. But its not. He squirms and fidgets and tosses and turns all night long which makes sleeping next to him really unpleasant. But for one night it was all right.
