Let It Snow....

Yep, that's what I said, LET IT SNOW!!!!! It is no April Fool's joke either!

Last week that was my mantra. Oh, and I didn't mean here in the Southeast, no way. I meant in Boise, ID!!

Why?? You ask Why????

My oldest brother lives there, on a small ranch. We had a family vacation where the 3 of us siblings came together with our respective families to hang out together and go SNOWMOBILING!!!

We had the best time - I'm the one in the middle, oldest brother on my left and middle brother on my right, and hubby is taking the picture. The pic is kinda hazy because it was snowing!

We really blew it out - 8 hours of snowmobiling fun and frolic! Everything Hurts! My arms, hips, legs, knees, and even the palms of my hands hurt! It was worth it!!! Wooo Hoo!!!

We rode 50 miles total, which included trail riding and quite a bit of trail blazing. We rode to 3 different points on the trail where you can go offroad and ride like the wind. We jumped mounds and dodged trees, sledded down hills that made your stomach drop and climbed hills where you were sure you would tip over backwards. Yikes!

I couldn't get enough - I kept saying, "I'm gonna do one more round, then we can go!" :)

The only sudo-sad moment for me was when I realized that 1 month ago, to the day, I was in surgery to remove the ectopic pregnancy. If life had zigged instead of zagged, or if the pregnancy had been OK, I would have missed this amazing moment with my brothers - the time of my life, with two of the true loves of my life.

Sometimes, when bad things happen to you, you can't see how it will be OK. You just can't imagine that something will break your heart so completely and yet something wonderful is in store for you. I am glad I didn't stop living and playing just because my heart was broken - life goes on if only you will let it.

Thanks W & W & Hubby for taking time to play!!!

Thanks for your comment on my blog. Looks and sounds like you had a really good time playing in the snow. There is life after disappointment, we just need to remember that. Good luck with your next IUI.

Thank you for your comment on my blog. I am sorry about your ectopic pregnancy. I have heard about these now that I have gone through In Vitro.
I send you good wishes and hope another bambino is in your future soon.

You're right. "When the going gets tough... play!" Fun, fun, fun!
Work hard. Play hard.
