Highs and Lows

Sunday, January 15, 2006
So today had its highs and lows.

The lows came first. I didn't get much sleep last night due to a variety of reasons. So I woke up tired and groggy. I was sore from running and working out on Saturday. My dad and I were going to go up to Mt. Hood Meadows and the plan was that I was going to take a snowboarding lesson.

Well, the plan changed when heavy chain-up traffic slowed us down, ALL the parking lots were full, and we didn't get up there until just after the last class had started. So I ended up skiing, an activity I do with absolutely no skill whatsoever. Plus the first line I got in for the lift took 25 minutes!!!

Then came the highs.

My dad and I did a quick run. I stayed on the buttercup "green-circle" trails after that, but since it was just me (my dad's a WAY better skier) I ended up on the lift with a variety of random and interesting people that I'll never see again, and it was fun talking to them. Plus I didn't fall down much. On my last run down I felt pretty good and didn't fall at all!

After skiing came dinner at my parents' friends' place. Dinner and wine with adults was fabulous. Talking about books and art and church and being treated like a grown-up was a blast!

But now I'm home. And tired. But I had a good day.
