Last run

If you could see where I am right now you'd think I'm crazy.

Because I've made no secret of how bitter this winter has been. I have cheered spring on its way like never before.

And also, Rob has that thing with his elbow...

So maybe I am crazy sitting here in our ski condo in Mont Tremblant, Quebec hoping that it cools down enough tonight to keep the snow hard packed for at least the first few hours tomorrow when Rob and I take to the slopes to try and squeeze in a bit of spring skiing.

We snuck off here before Christmas and we're here again - two getaways to book-end a season that ranks as one of the most difficult I have ever known.

Graham is at home being doted upon by Grandma and Oma and Mommy and Daddy are here doting on each other.

Oh, and Rob's physiotherapist has given her blessing for him to take a few runs as long as he is very cautious and DOES NOT FALL.

Wish him luck.

Wish us both luck as we search for the spring together.

Maybe that falls under the category of "Endless Winter . . . If you can't beat it, join it!"

Lucky you.

Spring Skiing is a perfect way to usher in the season. Enjoy!

You needed a vacation. Good for you.

Kathryn said...

That is not crazy at all! A vacation is a vacation! My hubby and I would love to get away for a ski vacation regardless of the fact that it just stopped snowing here last week! :)
Have fun!

Laura said...

Have a GREAT time...next year we will have to meet up when you venture to MontT...or even meet a the hill!!!!

Safe travels and safe skiing.

Karen said...

Oooh, fun. Have a great time, I'm so glad that you were able to get away.

SuburbanCorrespondent said...

I just couldn't do it. Shouldn't you be planning your garden instead?

Karen C. said...

Ah, it's finally feeling like spring here in Michigan, and I love it!! Have fun skiing! Be careful!! And take pictures!!

Heather said...

A vacation is a vacation. And maybe spring will be there when you get home. It's like sitting in a restaurant and being really hungry and waiting for your food. If you get up to use the restroom, your food will be at the table when you return.

Becky said...

Good luck!

Hey there, just dropped in and I like your voice. I think voices appeal to us when they make sense and they echo something of ourselves. And feeling this affinity for a total stranger (weird, just getting used to the blog thing) I feel the need to KNOCK ON WOOD for you 'cause I just read your Feb. post, and what were you thinking? Listing all those lucky things? Argle Bargle! Knock on wood again today, please, 'cause I feel that by reading it I've opened some Pandora's box. Man...

Enjoy the vacation! If the skiing isn't good, that just means more time together in the condo. It's a win win, isn't it?

And for goodness sakes, tell Rob to BE CAREFUL!!

No doubt that physiotherapist RUINED your husband's big plans to Fall Down All The Time. Because falling is THE thing to do when skiing.

Enjoy your grown up time!

Damselfly said...

Ahhh. Sounds great!

Jenifer said...

Right...cuz falling is the objective...have fun on your weekend away.

MommyTime said...

I hope you have a great, relaxing, rejuvenating time.

Sounds like fun - as long as he doesn't fall. Enjoy your break, er, vacation! Don't break anything. :)
