Playing Hookie... or something like that

Billy and I spent a wonderful day together. He didn't have to work until tonight so this morning we got up early and headed up to Snowbasin for some snowboarding. Well he did the snowboarding and I provided the moral support... OR.... well I enjoyed sitting in the nice, warm, comfy lodge and read a book, sipped hot chocolate and watched him from the window as he snowboarded... thats moral support right? :) He has been trying to get me to learn, but I can't even balance on a skateboard and things of that nature, how would I balance myself on that as I am also moving down hill? Give me a sled or something I can sit on! :) Maybe I will someday. Most importantly, he had fun doing something he loves, and I enjoyed myself too. I would have had pictures to post if I would have remembered to bring the camera.

We went out for a late lunch on the way home and picked up Shellise from school. Then all three of us went to the gym and worked out for about an hour. As always, it's so invigorating!

Later, and since it's Thursday, that means it's bowling night for me. Billy came and provided moral support to me while I did something I love to do. I bowled some decent games. My team won the first half of the season and we are starting on the 2nd half. My teammate bowled a 300 game tonight. The first time ever for him and the first time ever for me watching someone bowl that. For those of you non-bowlers. That is the very best you can do. That is a strike in every frame. A perfect game. And not many people can reach that. It was real exciting and fun.

It was a really nice day...... lots of good memories made. Now Billy is off to work, driving to Wamsutter Wyoming and back (9-10 hrs round trip).... And... I am off to bed. I hope everyone had a great day also.

Keep posting your awesome blogs that I love to read!

Sounds like a nice little getaway! I don't dare snowboard, either. I can ski, and I feel much more confident having that much more control. :)

Way to go Waldo!!! I'm assuming you still bowl with Waldo and that's who got a 300... Jay misses bowling with you guys. Maybe one day he can be on a league again.

Tiffany...Nope not Waldo, but his son, Aquina, is who got the 300 game.

That sounds like a really relaxing and enjoyable day for you, maybe not so relaxing for Bill though. Glad you got to spend the day together in the beautiful mountains. Love Ya, MOM

By the way, Parker made me immediately get those pictures of Abby printed. He could hardly wait. He placed them in his special drawer with all of his other treasures. :)

Days like that are so rare. It sounds wonderful! Bob and I are coming up on our 22nd Anniversary in May - maybe we can get away like that for our anni. That would be awesome.

I'm so glad you are feeling better. :)
