Skiing Shmiing


Before two days ago, the last time I went skiing was 5 years ago. My husband and I were just dating, in the marriage-discussion mode. We (along with my younger brother) were taking a ski class together. If ONE thing almost caused an end to our courtship, it was this ski class. You see, when I get nervous/feel insecure/wish I could crawl instead of ski down a mountain, I get a bit snippy. Don't try giving me advice. Don't tell me what I'm doing wrong. I'll bite your head off. After one particular ski class, mi esposo vowed NEVER to go skiing with me again. But he did again the next week. And I tried really hard to be nice. I guess it worked, because he still has his head, and we're married!


When my brother suggested a President's-Day-Ski-Trip, I had mixed feelings. Read On

Way to go Robyn! You have been married long enough now for him to know how to "handle" it. He's tough. It looks like it was a good time though. Can you believe I have lived her my entire life and NEVER skied? Sad but true.

If you're gonna live in Utah, you NEED to ski. When we moved to California and people found out I had lived my whole life in Utah and never went skiing, they were shocked. The best snow on earth...you must ski! Sure glad you had a good time.

This was such a cute post! I can't remember if I commented on the other blog the other day (so here I am)!

You are such a talented writer!

I have never been skiing! I would probably wimp out so I think you are AWESOME for going!

How did Gold's go today???

Okay, I am TOTALLY the same, as Aryn will gladly attest too! I am glad that you guys got a date though, even if it was skiing! I am have only ever been once and it was not a pretty picture. You would think all those years in Utah I'd have been more. I guess I am really just a California/Arizona girl through and through!
