Ski Trip Update
We haven't seen much of the Man-Child as he's made it his life's ambition not to reveal that he is our child. He walks ten steps ahead of us in the airport, keeps his head down when we're out at dinner and snowboards on his own or sometimes with the Queenager who's a pretty ace skiier. I wouldn't care but we're all wearing helmets so no one would really know that it was him out with us dorks. Grrr.
Anyway, today we are having a bit of a snow blizzard and I hate skiing in it. Apart from the fact that it's wet and cold, the snowflakes coming at you as they do, from the side, actually start to sting after a while. The B&C has taken Little Guy swimming, and the teens have gone out in the blizz. I have warned them, on pain of death, to stick together. That means that they will stick together if they want to do the same runs. They're not likely to come to much harm as there are tons of ski patrol people and hardly any skiiers this week, but the Man-Child insists on taking short cuts through trees then forgetting that he's 6'3" and often taller than the branches!
I am still in my jim-jams with a ten page paper to write for my writing class on Monday and no topic in mind.
Better get started hadn't I?
