So Close

It's really getting close. I can tell you that I'm 32 days away from Springer. I'm also 21 days away from my last day of work. Things are starting to go too fast and somehow not fast enough.

But geese there is still so much to do, and it isn't exactly made any easier by the fact that Eric works on weekends and I work on weekdays and it's just HARD to coordinate our schedules.  

Anyway, I'm getting really amped up and it's NUTSO that I only have 3 weeks left at work. I'm super excited to follow and read the blogs of the people who are starting earlier but I have to say, with as cold as it's been, I AM glad we aren't out there yet!

Eric and I also just celebrated our two year anniversary! We went to Tahoe and he attempted to teach me to snowboard which I'm still terrible at but I got better and it was a lot of fun! (I think I bruised my ribs though).  

It was the first time I had experienced below freezing weather since I went to MN in December 2014 so it was nice to be reminded that maybe the cold isn't so terrifying after all, as long as you have the right equipment. We experienced the below freezing weather at 1am when the fire alarm in our hotel forced everyone to evacuate. I think the getting out of bed at 1am was worse than the temperature. 

Hopefully we can get some real prep done this upcoming week.... Who knows! Maybe it will all wait until the day before we leave! (If we do, I will likely blame Eric as not packing ahead of time is a distinctly Eric trait that I have learned to love and live with.)
