Yes, I'm baaack!



Helmets were required for practically every activity!!

Back and totally swamped with getting-back-to-work-and-life stuff...

Wish you were all on Facebook so you could have seen the photos and updates as we posted last week. I'll edit this in a minute to add a photo if I can find one.

Had a ball. We love that house in Tahoe...so much that we (FOR FUN ONLY) looked at real estate there. It would be a DREAM to have a vacation home there...

We skied 5 days. I'm better and better every year...this year I even did one 2 1/2 mile run several times at the Sierra resort (which we ended up liking a lot...we skied at Heavenly too). We also took a snowmobile ride to the top of the mountain to see the Lake on our day "off". I hated the snowmobile (bumpy, noisy, scary), but the view was amazing and I am happy that we did it. We had a beautiful dinner on DB's birthday. Most other nights we just came home after skiing, jumped in the hot tub, had some beers and went to bed early. THAT, my friends, is vacation! ;-) Super relaxing...

I have no idea how I did with weight because no weighing on vacation. I overate and overdrank. I also exercised virtually every day. Maybe, if I'm lucky, that will balance out. I actually could tighten my ski belt one hole tighter at the end of the week...if that means anything. But it probably doesn't!! ;-)

We got home on Saturday night. Yesterday we slept in, went out for a nice walk to breakfast, went to a Super Bowl/housewarming party at our new neighbor's, then to see Phantom of the Opera (one of my gifts to DB for his birthday was these tickets -- he loves the show and I never saw it before -- LOVED IT!!! -- I cried!!).

Now back to work...and jumping into more b-day festivities. My b-day is Wednesday and we're having a get-together on Friday...among other things!!!!

Hope everyone is well...looking forward to catching up soon...

middle child loves Phantom of the Opera too - it must be a movie that she saw (or maybe the music).

Glad you had a good trip!!! Pixs were great. Loosening (that spelling doesn't look right) a belt is a BIG DEAL! I take tone any day of the week!!! Especially around the middle where it is always welcome.

so what move or combination were you doing that you hurt yourself? I am always worried that this is going to happen to a new person in pilates - because the instructor just isn't knowledgeable. It is not a lower back friends class. I have no worries about me - because I spent all that time learning in PT and know how to modify - but a newbie - in there - I really worry about them! sometimes Sabrina thinks I am too cautious - but I don't think there is any such thing because I know what will happen and I have no desire to start over again. Did this happen to you before or after ski trip? Do you suppose it was the combination of the two? that is my biggest fear - having multiple events - that I don't realize are rolling together - impact me.
