Baby, It's Cold Outside

No workout or running today.

Something I haven't thought about in a long time is snow skiing. I used to really enjoy it, and the last time I went, probably a good 8 years ago, was on a ski trip with my son's Boy Scout troop. It was near Lake Arrowhead. VH1 had some show being taped and Jennifer Lopez was there. I didn't see her but my husband did, and that made his day. The scouts had a good day and earned their skiing badge. I had a good day of skiing and came home exhausted because I wanted to fit in as many ski-runs as possible. Now that I'm a little bit older, I experience pains I never knew I had until it gets cold out. I love the beauty of the mountains, and I really did love the exhilaration of whooshing and swooshing down the snow-packed mountains, then ending the day with a nice hot buttered rum and snuggling with my husband at the ski lodge. Now, even the thought of getting cold hurts. I would much rather save the money and take a tropical vacation. Perhaps I'll go snow skiing again, at some point, but not right now. I think I just need to work myself up to it again.

Many artists do that song, but my favorite is James Taylor!

I admire those that love the snow and love to ski. I hate the cold, can't stand that falling, out of control feeling and should have been born in a warmer climate. If I ever have the money I'm moving somewhere where it never gets cold.

I used to really love it. *sigh*
