Keep on Keepin on....

My title is really what is going on. Life is all about enduring. I wish we had more talks on this, ways to endure. So I was sitting there thinkin, yes I had time to think. I thought about ways I can enjoy life, instead of just going through the motions. Unfortunately, all the ways I came up with included oodles of money....

The number one way that is nagging the crap out of me is skiing. Growing up, I had the life people....THE LIFE! My parents made me work hard no doubt, but we did a lot of great things. I am having serious skiing withdrawls right now. As a kid, I went every weekend. We ate, slept, and breathed skiing. Now, I have gone once in the last two years. Having Charly and being married is the best decision ever, but boy I wish I could be a ski bum! I wish they had an AA for ski aholics who cannot afford a lift ticket! I would call it Skiers Anonymous. To add to this little drama, Ben got to go snowmobiling on Monday while I still had to take on all motherly responsibilities. So I threw in a pitch to go skiing....and I got it! So my sis and I are in cahoots planning a sis ski day! AND PEOPLE I CANNOT WAIT! I don't even care if it is a powder day, just give me a good groomer and I will be just fine....powder day would be better though. If you are only gonna get to go once, make it worth your while right?

Back to the enduring thing, well I am still workin on it! But we are finding ways to enjoy life everyday and not just go through the motions. I must say it is putting me in a better mood too!

Here is my father-in-law on their snowmobile trip. This next pic is the last pic of Ben wearing the infamous 1988 hat. You read correct, he lost his hat. He is pretty ticked. I couldn't be happier! That nasty thing....







Charly is fiesty some days with this new found mobility. She is still pretty content for the most part, but then that red head comes out and look out!

One of my last days skiing, taken in 07....oh what a pathetic turn my life has taken.

I know how you feel!!! I have been thinking of ways to be more productive and enjoy myself so thanks for that post. I feel like I don't get anything done! Taking care of a 3 month old takes more time then I ever thought it would. I love your enthusiasm!
