One more sleep (if you can call it that) until my ski vacation!

We're off to the airport at 5am tomorrow. Ugh. And then we'll be in Calgary.

It'll be nice to see Jen. It'll be nice to hang out with Matt, too, as I don't get to see him much. And so my mom doesn't feel that I don't like her if she reads this, I should point out that I've been on 3 vacations in a year WITH my mom (last ski vacation, the Netherlands and St. Maartin). I'm really happy she'll be there to ski with since she and I are about the same calibre: mediocre and happy about it.

This year, we'll be trying out some new places: Fernie, Kimberly, possibly Castle Mountain. I think we'll be returning to some old favourites as well: Sunshine and Kicking Horse.

I have two worries:
  1. I've only been out skiing once this year so I could suck
  2. I've been having trouble with my back so just one wrong move could wreck everything

But no matter what happens, I'm sure I'll have fun reading and writing and being out in the gorgeous Rockies.

Luckily, Jaap is staying at my place for a couple of days so he can water my plants in my absence and drink my milk before it goes bad.

He might still be there when I get back, but he might have finally figured out what he wants to do next and might be gone. It was weird saying goodbye to him today; not knowing if I will see him again. I have a feeling that I will see him, though. He's a good friend and a fantastic travelling companion, so maybe we will travel together again. Plus, he has a very cute dad who knows how to use Messenger.;)
