Amanda Hopper Writes

A writer's tale of living and working in the country.

Hail Mary

If you know my family you know that we frequently come to the end of a project high-fiving, smoothing down frizzled hair, and patting out flames on our shoes. The College Camper fiasco was no different.

I lost 4 shirts, 1 pair of shoes, the knuckle of my right middle finger, and countless hours of sleep to the project, but we made it to the finish line.

And forgot to take pictures.

Oldest took pictures after he had been at Texas Tech for a week. He cleaned for you. Be impressed – it’s probably the last time the camper will be clean this semester – but his version of cleaning and mine is a tad different. So that’s why you had to wait three months for the before and after pictures.

Thanks to the Coronavirus, the College Camper is once again parked in front of my barn and Oldest is raiding my refrigerator.

You did a phenomenal job! I’m super impressed! You could start a business. But probably wouldn’t be a very fun thing to do! LOL!
