Skiing, Year 2

I am not going to be in the office tomorrow, and won't have a chance to post, and I want to cover the weekend before I go away. So that means you get a post tonight:-)

Chicken fingers were awesome. The Boy is a totally trooper for wanting to spend Valentine's with me and my other little Valentine. Well, "trooper" is maybe the wrong word...he and Munchkin genuinely enjoy each other's company...but I will reiterate how fortunate I am that he likes me and all of my baggage:-). And he sent me beautiful flowers at work, and brought me chocolate at home, so he is on my good boy list. He should expect to be adequately rewarded later on this evening...grrr.

Anyway, I am going skiing this weekend. Exactly as it was on President's Day last year, Munchkin and several of her friends are going up to one of their family's houses in Vermont to ski for the weekend. Last year I went along to hang out, help out and just sort of be an extra pair of hands. And I was invited to do the same this year.

But...the parents who own the house are really great to Munchkin. She stays at their house a lot, and they have taken her on vacation...so, as a means of thanks, I offered to take the girls up and let them have the weekend of peace and quiet for themselves at home. I also offered to watch their daughter some weekend so they could go up to the house on their own.

And then I recruited Smoking Hot Roommate (who, unlike me, will actually ski:-)) to come with as well. The result is a lovely girls weekend that should be loads of fun, and full of all kinds of stupid girl stuff. There is a long-shot chance that Big Sis is gonna come, too...but that looks to be a no-go at this point.

So, we are leaving this evening, right after the traffic peters out...maybe around 7:00 or so. Hopefully we will get there in good time. Maybe I will even dust off my ski bunny skills:-)

And with that...I will see you Tuesday;-) I will have Internet, and I will blog if the mood strikes. But maybe not:-) Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Ooo have fun! Are you going to Killington [hit up the Wobbly Barn] or Stowe [hit up Pie-Casso .. great pizza or the Japanese hibachi]? Both are fantastic :)

I was supposed to go to Vermont this weekend too, to visit Lil Sis, but she's got other plans.

Norwich is exit 5 off 89, which you can spot from New Hampshire as the place where the dark clouds refuse to leave... lol.

Enjoy, it should be a great weekend, and Lil Sis says they have tons of snow!! Say hello to Vermont for me!

I'm jealous! I've been wanting a ski weekend forever but can't find people to go with me. Have you tried snowboarding?

Aaron - There is a lot to be said for that! And really, I am gonna do very little besides bum around the house and make chili. I am just driving a ways to do it:-)

LPEG - Stowe...and I forgot to look for your school, but I will look on the way home.

Goose - Thanks:-) I get to sit around the fire and drink margaritas...what could go wrong?

Cindy - It has long been a goal of mine to be a super cool snowboarder chick. One of my more significant ambitions. Unfortunately, I am not very good at it!
