The End of Vacation & Beginning of Something New

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!

Sooooooo excited!

Birthday Eve

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!
