I'm Back!

I know all of you are sooo thrilled. I have had a crazy busy 2 weeks.

Chris had some time off, so we went to a ski resort here in Michigan. Since I've never skiied we signed me up for a lesson. I was trying really hard, but just not getting it. On my last run down the bunny hill I lost control (well that implies that I once had control, but anyway) I totally crashed into this thing called a magic carpet. It's like an escalator in the snow that takes you up the bunny hill.

The tips of my ski's hit the carpet of doom & I shot over it, landing clean on the other side. I am in the yellow & black coat.

It's actually amazing that I just ended up a little bruised. I was this close to landing on one of my ski poles & impaling myself. This concluded my skiing adventure, but Chris had fun skiing & we had a nice, if too short, get away.

We arrived home, did laundry, I did a weeks worth of school work & then I took off with JD for a mom-son road trip to see a friend of his in NC. (More on that in another post.)

I've missed my bloggy friends & my computer access!

I'm glad that you are ok. Skiing should be on a list of deadly sports.

Those ski poles are an accident waiting to happen but I'm glad you narrowly escaped their wrath! Welcome home to the blog world!

Take care my friend!

Don't be mad at me, but I would have laughed my ass off had I seen that. However, I will settle for the picture. I love skiing! I remember trying to teach my husband. I could barely talk because all I could do was laugh! But I hope that you at least had fun. And thank goodness you didn't impale yourself into your pole.

Have always wanted to try skiing but I can't walk on dry level ground without falling down so I know it would be one accident after another if I was on skis. You are a brave woman. Thanks for entering my giveaway/contest.
