Wow, that week flew by in a blur. Things are good in our household. Everyone (knock on wood) appears to be well and happy. On Friday, I got to go snow shoeing and skiing for work, which makes for a great work day! Saturday, I was so tired from the day before (which I started off sore from a run I did on Thursday), so I just hung out with Little Miss.
We went to the pool, and she has made quite a turn around. Now, the only time she cries is when I tell her it’s time to get OUT of the pool. She made so much progress, and just loved the pool, something that means a lot to me. I’m having visions of us playing at the pool every weekend this summer. She is still tenative, but getting a lot more confident.
After the pool, we stopped by to see my brother’s family, where Little Miss had a blast playing with her cousins. That night, I whipped up a mean enchilada casserole for dinner.
On Sunday morning, we got up early, I packed food for the whole day, and we headed to Kirkwood (1.25 hours away) for some skiing. Unfortunately, most of the mountain was on wind hold for the whole day, meaning that JB and I each did about 2 runs on groomers. Since there were 2 main chairs running, the lines were horrible, meaning you’d wait in line for 45 minutes for a 2 minute groomer run. It just wasn’t worth it, so we headed in, and hung out with my other brother and nephew for the day. Little Miss just idolizes her almost 7 year old cousin, and she had a blast anyway. She was wearing her “skier in training” shirt that we bought her at Taos last month.
Anyway, we got home around 7pm last night after stopping for dinner in Carson City. It was a heck of a lot of effort and driving for not much skiing at all. We were kicking ourselves for not going to Mt. Rose, which is only 15 minutes from our house.
That’s all that I have to report around here. Luckily, I fit in a spin class today at lunch to make up for my lack of activity yesterday. More later!
