If Not for the Kid Alarms...

I wasn't sure what to do today. I had considered skiing, but after Tia and I went to see a movie last night, and got home at 1am, I was exhausted. The idea of getting up early to go skiing seemed like a bad idea. It was still a bad idea when I got up at 7am.

Why did I get up? Kyle's alarm was going off, the alarm that should get set for school, on weekdays, was going off on Sunday. After 5 minutes of hearing the beeping, I got up to shut it off. As I was walking back to bed, Kendall's alarm went off and I turned around to shut that off. I lay back down, but then thought I should just go skiing. The kids were out with their Aunt, Tia had horse stuff. I could putter around the house and do things, but skiing seemed like a good idea. The weather was supposed to be nice, so I got up, dressed, kissed Tia good bye and headed for the slopes.

Not much traffic, but Keystone was crowded when I got there around 9:30. The gondola had a huge line, so I got through it, hit the top and immediately went off the back side again. I spent the day cruising around the Outback and North Peaks, sticking to the sunny areas where it was easy to see. It was colder than Thur, upper 20s, but no wind, and not too crowded. A great day to ski.

10 runs in, I headed back around 1:45, thinking I'd get a few things done at home. However traffic was bad and it took me an extra hour to get home. A few errands on the way made it later, so I got back, did my run, and now am going to cook a little food.
