It got Crazy!

So I last mentioned that I took a blog break without even wanting to. Well I made it sound like all I did was work (almost), but I did get in three ski trips. The first one was to Winter Park, Colorado and boy oh boy...did it get crazy!

We had planned a vacation with a bunch of friends and I was stressed because I knew I had to be at work if some people call surveyors stop by. Well they had been toying with us and not stopping by! (No worries, they did, hence why I am back to having a life and blogging!!) We were on a week by week basis waiting for them. So there I am the week of the trip, tickets booked stressing whether they would show up, which in and of itself is stressful, but also stressing about the booked everything that would be all money down the tubes!

Well then we get to the airport. We went with 7 other people and met in all about 25 people the whole weekend. Coordinating that many people is just too much! Thankfully I did none of that and remained pretty laid back for the weekend.

But...

We got there and our rental car was booked for the wrong weekend. Setting us back which means I didn't stop to buy the skis I wanted. Which meant I had to rent which was a nightmare. We had to walk to the ski shop and ended up walking the wrong way. So we decided we would rent my skis at the base. Wow. Over 20 dollars more for crappier skis and a LONG ass line. So we go all the way back to the other ski shop. A lot of huffing and puffing later, we are finally on the mountain enjoying they day!

But...

I had a headache the whole day. A light one. Nothing I was worried about. I thought for some reason maybe it was my goggles being too tight. Did I mention we were skiing with sustained wind gusts of like 40 MPH?!?! Ugh!

Then we walked us and our equipment all the way home and I just felt horrible! I had such a headache, nausea, etc...I will spare you. I finally knocked myself out with some drugs. Terrible night. 

I woke up the next morning weak. But I had already bought ski tickets!? What is a cheapo to do? Well go out on the mountain late and ski a light day. Pushing myself after what I think was altitude sickness. Then I want to go to bed early after expending my energy on another windy day of skiing.

But...

That night the room next to us was a couple. They had a blow out of a fight. I kept saying prayers for them and holding my husband tight. This was a fight like I had never heard. The worst things that two people could possibly say to each other. So it was a late night listening to them.

All and all it was like a frat house of crazy. I was really happy to get back from the ski town to Denver and meet one of my best girlfriends and her husband and spend the day with them. We had so many laughs and good eats. I love being with people that it is natural with. These two are def the best! And the girls name is Andrea and I am totally calling her out right now on this space to tell her she NEEDS to start a blog! ;-)

We got out of Denver late due to weather, I got three hours of sleep and turned back into a work-a-holic. Was this the best weekend I have ever had? No. But I learned that I love my great friends and my husband more than anything!

  1. Did ya ski Mary Jane - because no pain, no Jane :)

    I love Winter Park - but I just love Colorado in general. We always get our ski rentals, at least for me and my husband since we don't ski enough to buy yet, at Christy sports, off the mountain however, because like you found out, its $20 more there. Christy knows us by name so its nice and we've been doing it for years.

    Where else did you get to ski at?
