We woke up at 6 and were on the road a bit before 8am headed off to the ski slopes. The traffic was so thick, it took us 2 1/2 hours to drive what normally would have taken us 45 minutes! When we finally arrived, the snow was blowing sideways and the temperature was just above zero. We met up with our friend who started teaching the boys the finer points of snow boarding while the misses and I ran inside for a cup of coffee. By the time we made it back outside, we were told the boys had already picked up what normally takes hours to learn. So the misses and I began pulling both boys up the hill. It was so windy, the lifts were on and off. After a few runs the cold became unbearable and the day was done. All in all, it was a great first day and both boys did very well.
We stopped by the grocery store on the way home and arrived just in time for the kickoff of the first game. We made a bunch of food for lunch for the boys and then the oldest and I decided to play some catch. After 5 minutes outside, we quickly came in as the wind was blowing right through our coats. Around 4:30, the game we were waiting for was just starting. I’m sure everyone knows the outcome so no need to belabor the point, but the misses, and I, are both sad San Francisco lost.
Both dogs are in now and it’s a bit after 5:30. I have a ton to do today as I’m off to NY tomorrow and scheduled to return Friday morning. I might be able to get out Thursday night, we’ll see.
Time to grab another cup of coffee and get to the gym. Maybe the misses will chime in this morning. Have a great day and God Bless,
