It's the end of April? WTH?!

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.

Sunday Fun Day!

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!

be odd. do not conform.

have fun today

snow = fun
172 cm 142-115-139
These fat boys ROCK!!

Other scenes from today:
Me at the top of the Great Divide chair. Mt. Assiniboine is hiding back there somewhere.

The view from the top of Mt. Standish.

There's the Wawa chair, looking back at Goat's Eye (far left--you can see Wildfire and Sunshine Coast runs),  and Lookout Mountain. On the far right, you can see the line of TeePee town chair and the TeePee town chutes. Moving left, the big bowl between the two peaks is Delirium Dive.

Today was day #43 of my season. There are still another 12 days that I can/plan to ski between now and May 20 (closing day/Slush cup). A 55 day season? Can't complain about that!

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!

Fresh Start

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.
