First off, though, I want to thank you guys for putting up with my downer on Saturday! And thank you so much to everyone who commented and offered their support and love and prayers! I really feel like I've made some friends here! I am totally overwhelmed by the community of blogging. People who don't blog truly don't know what they are missing!
Now, on with the show.
I told you last week about my antics on the ski hill. I also told you there were two stories on that weekend. What follows, is the second.
Jody and I were heading up the chair lift. (What is it with the combination of chair lifts and young imaginations??? Sheesh!) The darned chair lift would stop at the same place every frigging time up!!! So, we joked that we should just jump and save ourselves some time! It was very close to the top, and was probably about 10 feet down only, into a snow bank. Haha, we laughed.
Then the next time up, it stopped again. And we sat. And we sat. And we sat. And finally I said, lets do it! Jody promised that if I went first then she would follow. Okay.
Down I went. My ski came off, but I quickly put it back on and looked up to encourage Jody. She wouldn't jump! She chickened out!
There I was about 50 feet away from the top of that hill, with the attendant looking at me angrily! There was NO WAY I was going to walk all the way up there and face him!
So I proceeded to V-walk my way out of the mess that I was in.
The only problem was that we hadn't noticed on our multiple times up that chair lift that the run was closed. I was stuck on a run that had almost no snow. Now what?
I cried and crawled and half skied wherever I could. Walked down parts. Finally I joined up with a real run with snow, a black diamond of all things, and managed to get my sorry self down the hill, much the same way I did the snowless route. Crying and crawling. And at some point, I probably peed my snowsuit out of fear!
And then I went back up again in hopes of avoiding Jody. I was SO MAD! Furious in fact! I skied by myself all day, but joined the family in the chalet for supper and would barely look at her.
Apparently she got in heck from the attendant when she got to the top. She told him that we were swinging it and I just fell out! He knew she was lying and said that if we did anything like that again, that we would be kicked off the mountain!!!
I was incredibly happy that she got in trouble. She was a very good girl and rarely did anything wrong. For her it was probably comparable to my ordeal! I was thrilled that she got in heck! lol It was only fair after all!
Have a great Monday!
