I've been a little down in the dumps you could say...this snow is getting a little out of control! All day I just think about warm sunny places and how happy that makes me and then I look down and see that my goose bumps have goose bumps and question why we live here. (Just kidding babe I love it!) This picture is from our apt and it doesn't do justice because lets be honest I didn't want to go outside to take a silly picture but you get the point it's COLD!!!
We decided to make the most of this snow season and go cross-country skiing on Saturday. We had a great time and I have to admit I was pretty proud of us...we went on a much harder trail that totally kicked our pants but we made it! There were tons of hills, which I had never been on before (yes I know I'm from ColoRADo and I've never been downhill skiing...)and I thought I would be cool and go down this REALLY steep one. Well that just proved how cool I really was. If anyone has ever seen the FRIENDS episode when Pheobe runs....that's how graceful I was in this fall. Poles, arms, legs they were floppin' all over the place. I ended up getting a bump/bruise on my knee and again this picture does NOT even come close to how much pain my poor lil' knee is in. Anyway it was a great ski day regardless!
I've also tried to change my "I hate the snow" mentality and focus on things I am grateful for...maybe I have the chance to do them because I'm stuck inside all day.
*ran 2 EXTRA miles today (thank goodness for new pumped up music)
*made a yummy dessert (twice this week...and that's why I run!)
*played a great game of Ticket to Ride (how come all the new people always win?)
*had 2 packages waiting by my mailbox!!! Woohoo for my teaching certificate! These packages have probably been there since last week but since I don't go outside I didn't notice
*organized my cabinets
*wow I should really look for a job!
