 (All stars made by Kurt and Becky Knudsen off of etsy. But they are swamped so be aware your order has 79 before it for Vday)
             It is a shame I am in the process of  tapering in ski season. Because it really bites. And ya need snow. We were riding on the fact that the closest mountain- well, slope side- was twenty minutes away and actually got some good snow!!
Give a three cheers, hoorah with your hands in a fist.
But. Mid week it decided to get really warm, for Idaho. IN the 30's. So there was melting. Then Freezing. Which equals ice.
Which meant that I took J. up to snowboard- not ski- notice I said snowboard cause that comes in handy later. So he wants to snowboard or try it out.

(Yes, The Blue Bird of Happyness is givng one of my stars a piggy back cause I am on prednisone.)
So while I was having a personal moment in the loo he knocks on the door.
ME: "Yay - ah??" simultaneously thinking: "He saw me just five seconds ago." Mind you I can't find him if there is something that is seriously needing to get done. okay so he knocks. and I say a tired response.
(okay this is my original favorite star. Christmas Theme Star. It is over the kitchen sink. So you are happy when you do dishes. I haven't done them in some time. So thanks, mom. And sorry.)

J: "So we can still get in time even though it isn't the whole day!!"
ME: "Awesome!" I say sarcastically.
Then I am washing my hands. Leaning on elbows for support.
knock. knock.
You have to be kidding me.
ME: " " ---- wait, I didn't say anything, I just opened the door with with a soapy hand.
J: "Guess what! I called up there and they said it is, 'soft, kinda like powder. the perfect day for skiing."
ME: "What kind of report is that?" I said wondering if they are being honest with a kid over the phone while looking at my seriously swollen face in the mirror and wondering how I was going to find make-up that could hide moon face.
These are the people- the ones who told him the sketchy snow condition. - who sold a ticket to a kid when all the HS kids were leaving and telling us it was really icy and they were happy to put him in a rental snowboard late at night.  I get that they need to hedge their situation. But honestly.
I was so glad I stopped that and said: "Just ski."

(I wish this purple star I gave my mom was a tad more light purple. I will find the perfect one for her)
