Fill in the blank...

If you were writing 10 Camping Commandments, what would you put down as one of them. Start your answer with "Thou Shall...."

Mine:
"Thou shall not unpack clothes the wife packed for herself"

I heard about that all weekend. How did I know it was going to end up being cold. If I would have known, I wouldn't have taken her sweatshirts back into the house. Just trying to save space in the closet dear did not cut it.

Thou shalt always figure out how much food and drink you will need (if not planning a top up trip to the store), then add 50% to that amount.

We found this out on our first trip - sucks when you say to yourself “hmmmm, gonna have to ration the snacks n beer”

Thou shalt chill and relax.



Not everything is going to be perfect. Don't let a 10 cent thing ruin a thousand dollar thing, i always say.

My wife and I have two rules:
1> 'Mommy' is always right.
2> When in doubt, refer to rule number ONE.

There are really only 3 rules.

Thou shalt anticipate correctly what DW wants before she even hints at it.

Thou shalt promptly get it for her, in the manner in which she expected.

Thou shalt then shut up.

Posts number 5 and number 7 are rules to live by. I know enough to when DW asks me something to say did I hear her and I say yes, even though I have no idea what she is talking about. Laugh when she laughs.

Well, we obviously need some estrogen on this post.

Thou shalt be patient and understanding when DH does not turn the proper direction when backing in.

LOL
