I totally forgot it was St. Patrick's Day was coming up today and completely missed out on potential partying. Don't worry though, even though I failed in that area, I'm still wearing green today.
We did however celebrate one last day of snowboarding. The snow on the back of the mountain was decent at best, but the front side was total slush. Still- like my mom always says, "The worst day skiing is still always better than your best day at work." How true, Mom. How true.
Also- I am a firm believer that clean mountain air is a cure all. Sickness, broken hearts, stress, anxiety... you name it, shredding up the mountains will fix it. Or at least take your mind off it. And I can say this because I was coming down with a serious head cold Friday night like, ears were plugged, nose was plugged AND runny (how is that possible?), sore throat, everything. And after snowboarding all I have is a runny nose and that's it. Magic.
I'm going to miss winter, but after the post I wrote on Friday I'm starting to get really excited for summer.
While Landon and I are still preparing to buy a house, we aren't sure where we want to go yet. So we might end up getting an apartment soon. It's not that I don't love my Mother-in-law for taking us in (rent free) and letting us take over her basement and half of the garage, but I'm an independent soul and I'm starting to feel a little cramped. When I moved out of my own parent's house I never moved back, so this has been a little hard on me in that sense, you know? Ugh. Every time I say it, I feel like I sound super ungrateful and spoiled. SOMEONE TELL ME THIS IS NORMAL.
The Walking Dead had my jaw ON THE FLOOR last night. Anyone else see it? I DID NOT see any of that coming. I'm still in shock. And I'm sad. But mostly in shock.
Sunny proposed the idea of participating in the Dirty Dash this June. Has anyone does this race? I watched the video and it almost seemed a little extreme for someone has never ran even a 5k. (Sheepishly raises hand.) But I'm doing crossfit and stuff now. So maybe I'll be more prepared for it by then.
