How did that happen?! Last time I looked, it was my baby cousin's birthday. He's an April fool. And tomorrow is the last day of the month already!
Time is flying by. That's what happens when you're having fun!
My new job is going great. I'm rocking the new clothes, my boss loves me, I love my new schedule, and I'm having fun after work, too. My cousin and I are going to aquasize twice a week. Tonight's class wasn't so great due to a disengaged instructor, but we had fun regardless. And hey, it's good it to get out, have a girl talk and move around at the same time.
Ski season is almost over. It makes me very, very sad. I'm hoping to get into the Dive this weekend. Fingers crossed for snow and then some bluebird days!
My mom surprised me with a visit yesterday. It also involved a shopping trip with my grandma (Mom lied--she told me they were done shopping--I don't shop with the old lady. I will take her to medical appointments and translate the medical speak, but I refuse to shop with her any more. Not since the Lazy-Boy incident.) It was cool, I got a chance to hang out with my mom unexpectedly.
I've had a crazy twitchy eye all day. Not fun.
And that's what's new in my world. Nothing too exciting, but good all around. I'll take it.

I had a fabulous day today!
Let me list the reasons why:
1. My favourite bus driver was driving the ski bus today.
2. He brought me new skis to try out to see if I want to buy for a greatly reduced price (I do!)
3. Skiing with good friends.
4. Sunshine at Sunshine!
These are my new skis! I love, love love the graphics!

What a week! I keep forgetting how exhausting learning new things are. Even when they aren't 100% new, it's been awhile and my brain and body are reminding me to rest. The beer after work probably is helping with that!
I'm definitely rocking the new clothes! I'm the best dressed there. =)
My shoes, while cute, gave me a nasty blister on Tuesday. I bought flats after work (two malls and too many shoe stores later, I might add). They're excellent blister-healing and transit shoes (I refuse to be a woman who wears athletic shoes and a skirt. That's wrong on way too many levels.). Thankfully today was casual Friday and I could wear my beloved Keens.
We had a baby shower yesterday for one of the girls who's off on mat leave as of this afternoon. It was so cool to see the manager and supervisor not only take part, but involved in the planning. What a difference!
Yay for the beginning of weekends off again! Tomorrow is taxes and housecleaning, unfortunately, but I believe it will end with movies on the couch. Spring skiing is on tap for Sunday, but I'm not sure if we'll hit Louise or Sunshine, it will depend on the conditions.
OK, I'm going to try and get a head start on tomorrow's to-do list!

Tomorrow is my first day at my new (old) job. This is a slightly different version of the job I originally moved to this city for.
I have fabulous new clothes.
I have been rocking the healthy eating and weight loss lately (even with Friday night wings, Sunday lunch of nachos and beer or new Easter Sunday tradition of sushi).
I'm a way better skier now than I was at this time last year. And there's still 6 weeks of the season left! And I have pretty new boots.
I have a friend who loves me.
So, goodbye to the old. I'm choosing to move forward with honesty and integrity.
And in damn fine shoes, if I do say so myself.

It's bittersweet. I've had four fabulous weeks away from work. 15 ski days. This is me on Friday, on top of Goat's Eye, before heading down to the tree line to play in the powder.
So while I have to return to work (I really missed my co-workers!), it will only be for a little while. Starting in April, I'm moving on, job-wise. It means a longer commute and sitting at a desk, but what I get in return far outweighs all that! It's days. No more weekends. No more evenings. Same days off. All. The. Time.
What?! Why, yes! I may actually be able to achieve work-life balance again!

That's right, if you don't have your shopping done by now, it's too late!
I had a great time in BC, in fact, the best day I have EVER had skiing happened on Thursday. It was amazing and challenging and fun! So much fun, I tried to replicate it on Friday, with some success. Let's just say I need to work on my powder skiing skills! I wiped out more times than I can count, but when there's 20cm of fresh, soft snow to land in, who cares?! The highway was closed last night, so my departure was delayed by 6 hours (had I known, I could've skied for another two hours!) and I didn't get home until 6 this morning. *yawn*
I've spent the day doing laundry and cuddling with Nerm. I'm heading out tomorrow with some of my favourite peeps to play in the snow and have some fun to celebrate another year older. Hopefully one of them will have a functioning camera on their phone to capture the day. (Did I mention I'd like a new phone for my birthday? No? Well, it's on the list.)
And that's what I know for now. The next time you hear from me, I'll be another year older!
