Snow Bunny Extraordinaire

I hope that none of you missed me too much on my three day blog break... I just never got around to blogging. I could tell you that I didn't have time, but that would be a total lie...I had tons of time!

So, let's see. Got on the road in really good time on Friday, and most definitely had Chicken McNuggets for dinner:-) Total treat! Then, I ended up going on a date with a 50 year old married guy...:-). Munchkin's friend's father really wanted to go out because his older son's friend plays in a band that was playing a bar nearby (did that make sense?). The mom was beat and didn't feel like going, so I went with him for a little bit.

OK..."date" is strong... It was fun, though. Ski bums always make for the most mellow crowd you can imagine. Lots of hemp clothing, giant sweaters and beards...:-) Good music and a couple cold beers, all pretty good!

Everyone was gone skiing all day Saturday (and Sunday and most of Monday for that matter...it was warmish, so they skied a LOT). I ended up making pizza on Saturday and spaghetti and meatballs on Sunday. And nachos and quesadillas, too:-). And cookies and brownies. For brownie sundaes:-).

I took the girls out on Saturday to do some night-tubing, which was really the only significant time I spent outside of the house. Other than that, I took several long soaks in the hot tub, watched TV, did some work and read a lot. Very, very nice! I could have used a waiter/masseuse, but I don't want to sound too picky:-P.

And, yes, I definitely watched Nascar on Sunday afternoon:-P. My favorite Nascar driver did pretty well (after those stupid idiots almost crashed him out of the race!)...but the real news is that Munchkin is totally buddies with the guy who won. OK...she sat next to him on an airplane last summer when she flew to Chicago by herself. Close enough!

I guess that gets us to this week...which is thankfully a short one:-). And I am, of course, super excited about vacation next week...Yay!!!
