ski IDAHO

I grew up skiing A LOT. I don’t ski as much as I should. It’s a fun sport, but I’m not going to lie, if you don’t already know how it is a money and time investment. We don’t go enough to justify owning our own gear with growing children and getting all the rental gear for a family about makes me go crazy. Besides the fact that you need: a coat, gloves, ski pants, warm socks, etc… If any of those items get lost on the way to the lift, your budget is ruined. (Unless you don’t care about buying additional gear on the spot for a premium.) With that said, it is fun. It is really fun. If you don’t know how and want to learn, there are really great ski schools at most resorts. Do it!!!

Birthday ski party

Growing up, I always skied alone. Local friends didn’t ski. I made loads of friends with people going up the lift and sometimes we’d ski together, but I was really on my own. Anyway, this past weekend we went to Utah so cousins could ski together and celebrate my nephew’s 15th birthday. I had to chaperone and tag along so nobody got lost on the big mountain we hadn’t ever been to. Nobody wanted to ride up with me so it was super fun. 🙄 Once again, I was stuck as a single rider amongst strangers making small talk. They had fun though. ❤️❄️❤️

The only constant is change……

I was just watching a youtube video I came across where the stars are going to cut back on their daily vlog. I feel like this is a world I do not comprehend. I mean these people grew up with reality tv and youtube. It is my children’s world. I do not get it. They make a lot of money showing up to their fans EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. I’m not sure it’s worth it.  I have seen very little reality tv. I grew up watching soap operas. I guess it’s the same thing. We used to be down in SOCAL on vacation in the eighties and we’d have to record (ha ha) the soap and watch it every night with my aunt. =Same thing, different day.  Anyway, I am dealing with a lot of “constants” right now. I’m thinking about adding video content to my blog or doing something on gasp…. :0 Youtube. I hate to hear recordings of my voice, but it may just be the best medium we have for communication. I just heard that in Japan the most famous singer is now computer generated. HA HA.. So I guess I could get a computer-generated voice. It’s a new frontier.
