Fun stuff lately... DH and I went skiing this past weekend in PA with his brother and SIL. We had a FANTASTIC time! It was great to get away - I don't even think I thought about my LUF or the craziness of it all once. Yay! Such a needed break. My SIL and I are both beginners - me on skis, her on a snowboard. DH and his brother are a little more accomplished having grown up in Maine. We rented a cute little condo that was a perfect size for the 4 of us, was within walking distance of the slopes, and had a kitchen that was clean and equipped with enough that we could prepare our meals. We're hoping to make it an annual trip.
It was... uh... very cold!!!
In addition to getting together with DH's brother & SIL, my twin sisters are coming down this weekend for a visit. Then, next weekend, DH's Mom & Dad will be in town! I don't know that we'll be traveling until May for my sister's bridal shower, so I'm very glad to have family coming to us!
One of the sisters (V) coming down is the bride-to-be. The other sister (R) told me on the phone last week that V said she hoped she didn't get pregnant before we were chosen to be adoptive parents. R said the whole family felt that way... it breaks my heart. What should be looked forward to with joy and excitement causes fear, pain and sadness. I'm grateful that she is so sensitive to my feelings, but I wish more than anything it didn't have to be the case.
On a happier note, I'm working on an exciting present for V's bridal shower! I'll share details once it's finished! :)
Off to finish dinner! We're having Salmon with Citrus Salsa Verde, which I know I posted before... seriously... if you like salmon, make this, make this, make this!!
Happy Tuesday, everyone! :)
