Oh my gosh....I am going camping this weekend and Bella is not finished!  Yikes!!  Well, it has been raining cats and dogs and I can't really do anything much with the rain.  So I took advantage of the situation and made her awning.  It turned out pretty good.  Now I can't wait to see it on her!  I have 2 more pieces of paneling to hang on the ceiling and I will be finished with all the paneling.  I will be putting up the rest of the trim tomorrow and painting that.  Then I have to hang the bunk bed back up (another million screws).  Oh, and hang the rest of the cabinet doors.  The cabinet over the sink along with the back splash will have to wait until I get back from camping.  I am only one person....not wonder woman. 

I will post pictures, but not until I get her to the lake and all set up.  Steve promised to spray paint the rims for me before my trip.  We'll see.  I am pretty much a control freak, so I will probably paint them if he will just do the muscle work of scraping off the rust.  And maybe I can talk him into cleaning my propane tanks so I can paint them.

I have covered all the cushions that go at the table, but have not covered the cushions for the back couch/bed.  I think I will just wrap them in a blanket or something until I decide which material I am going to use.  I hung all the curtains and put the cushions in the front, since that is finished and my grandson, John Eric and I slept in the camper Friday night.  It was a lot of fun, but I have 2 words...memory foam.  I will definitely be making a trip to Target before Friday.  I have a 2 hour drive ahead of me to get to the Kerr Lake on Friday and I haven't even practiced pulling Bella with my Suburban.  I drove her home with my daughters Durango which is a lot smaller than the Suburban.  I have always heard that God watches over "idiots" and "small children". Ha  Well I sure hope he is watching over me on this trip.  I know he has been right there with me during this whole process!  Thank you God!
