Work has finally picked back up so I don't have much time to blog during the week.
We didn't go skiing last weekend...it was too much for me to pull together on short notice and I really needed a weekend (a long one at that!) at home to rest and catch up on things.
The prior weekend was actually pretty horrible -- we had a bad falling-out with our ski friends (couple who is/was long-time friends with DB). We won't be seeing them again. Very sad, but they were nuts. The whole incident really hurt my feelings (I guess they never really liked ME) so I'm not going to rehash it here. But it sucked.
My ski boots also really hurt me after just one run so I had to rent. I have to sell my current boots and DB bought me some more last weekend for my upcoming birthday. The ones I had just did not fit the shape of my foot and, as some of you might remember, I had a numb foot for a couple months after our ski week last year. It's not entirely better and I don't want it to get worse or permanent! We found a great ski shop with an amazing boot fitter -- we were with him for two hours on Saturday and I feel confident that I now have the right boots. Yay!
I also bought DB some skis on ebay for his birthday. Now we are all set for our ski week (leaving January 29)!!
Saw Avatar this weekend. I didn't think I was going to like it, but I LOVED it. That's all I'll say...don't want to build up or spoil for any of you who haven't seen it (has anyone not seen it?!).
We also spent time hanging out with friends and some really good "us" time. It was great not to have to do too much. DB said to me this morning "This little vacation weekend has been so nice...I don't want you to go back to work!" :-)
We may go ski locally one day this weekend...or not. We'll see. I've got a lot to do before we go away and DB's birthday is next week (we'll be having people over to play in his almost-completed studio, I'll be baking a cake, etc.)
I only went to yoga once this weekend...my thumb/wrist/arm on the right side is really hurting me and it's hard to practice with no down dogs or planks! I've been doing it in dolphin pose, but that's difficult for some parts of the flow.
Weight is stable. Going down a little bit each week. I might even get to a new low just in time for vacation... ;-)
