Day 20: First Tracks!

I know this is a bad photo. It is groomed snow, otherwise known as corduroy. This is on a run called Big Bear. We got first tracks on this today.

Day 19: God's Country

Missed yesterday. I do have a picture of my friends and I going out for lunch but it's not my photo and it wasn't taken with my camera so I won't publish it.

This is a photo I did take while skiing Saturday.  It was beautiful. Only a few people in the world ever get to see a sight like this one!

Day 17: Color Guard Finals

Tonight my middle daughter, husband and I attended my youngest daughter's color guard recital. She preformed to I'll Make a Man Out of You. Her group did a great job. They also did their Disney World program.

Day 16: Dinner at Twigs

No photo yesterday. I worked from 8am to 9pm. I did a Blackboard workshop for our adjuncts so I ran out of time.

My husband is out of town and my youngest daughter had guard practice so I took the older girls to Twigs for dinner.

Day 14: Stage Makeup

Today my daughter was working on her Disney stage makeup for her color guard recital and their trip to Disney World. They are supposed to be inspired by a villain. Hers is Maleficent.  I think the red eye flash really adds to her look. Don't you think so too?

Day13: The Aging Dog

Our dog is getting older. She is having hip issues. My husband had to carry Ruger up the outside stairs at the cabin. My oldest daughter came by tonight and we decided to try to give her glucosemine in peanut butter. Let's just say it didn't go so well. Ruger wanted nothing to do with the whole thing. Guess who's buying glucosemine dog biscuits tomorrow!

Day 12: Cold Day with the Girls

It was a cold a on the mountain but hanging out with girlfriends and laughing made it all bearable.

Day 11: Left Behind

Our dog Remington and Ruger are finding it hard to believe my daughter went to McDonald's and left them behind.

Day 10: Evening Snow

Whitworth in the evening is beautiful but the snow makes campus look amazing.

Day 9: Pretty Toes

Even though it's winter, it's fun to have pretty toes so we went to Lynn and Larry's to get pedicures. Once we were there and in the chairs, I realized I left my wallet at home. Oops! Thank goodness I found a checkbook in my coat pocket and Lynn agreed to take a check.

Day 8: Dinner Out

Tonight was a night of errand running so we stopped at Red Robin for a bite to eat. Red Robin has changed their decor from movie themes to boring. The food didn't seem as good as it used to be but my daughter enjoyed her Oreo shake.

Day 7: Dentist Visit

Not that anyone likes to go to the dentist but the atmosphere at my daughter's pediatric dentist makes it a bit easier. Not only are there a bunch of nook and crannies to hang out in with games, activities and movies, there are several cool aquariums.

Day 6: Are you ready for the play-offs?

It was a foggy day at the mountain so we didn't ski. We have Dish Network as our television provider. They are fighting with FOX again or FOX is fighting with them is more like it so we went to the neighbor's to watch the Seahawks beat Washington. One step closer!

Day 5: Skiing

Today was a foggy day on the mountain but it was still a great day! 8 runs, taking Daughter #2 on the new lift and hanging with family and friends at 49. Another amazing day.

Day 4: My Daughter's Biggest Fan

Today I planned to take another photo. Actually, I did take another photo but just as I was shooting it, Dale pulled up and said hey you look like you're waiting for a bus. I explained to him I had this blog and was doing Project 365 with Project Life. As a professor of history, he of all guys might get it. So he told me I should take a photo of him instead because he was an important person in my life. He's right, so Dale became today's subject. Not only have I taken American Pop Culture from him, I've also spent many hours working with him. I've even sung folk songs with him in public. He is the Whitworth historian and we share a passion for US history and local history. Over the years he's also entertained Daughter #3 while I did setups for early morning events. He always asks me about her future plans and her skiing. Most of all, Dale has tried to mentor her (get her to choose Whitworth) and he claims he's her biggest fan.

Day 3: Email Overload

How much email is too much email? I came back to work and had way too many unread messages. Of course most of them were RSS Feeds and List Servs but there were way too many. I whittled it down to 6000, but I still need to clear out so many more. I also knocked off over 1000 in my person email over my lunch hour. I don't think I'll ever see inbox zero!

Day 2: Back to the Grind

Today was back to work & back to school for us. I had a great lunch at Petit Chat with my friend, Lisa so I could easy back into my routine slowly.  Apparently, school wore someone out though! After I picked daughter #3 up from the high school, she needed a little rest on my couch at work before our trip to Walmart to pickup makeup for her Disney trip.

Day 1: Happy New Year!

We spent New Year's Eve with our mountain friends. It started with a progressive dinner and then we opened 2013 with Chinese floating lanterns and fireworks.
