I guess I shouldn’t be surprised…it is December after all. I’m still not ready for winter though..I miss my flip flops.
We have been pounded with snow today: at least a foot. Brooke’s caretaker came over and her car got stuck in our driveway. I was supposed to be at work this morning at 8:45 and needless to say, I’m sitting at my computer at home.
I had a super fun morning shoveling snow. You want a good workout? Find some snow and shovel it! Wow. It’s like, 5 degrees outside and I was sweating.
So, you’re looking at my driveway. It’s nonexistent. There’s also a road out there…apparently it was plowed at some point?
The start of my snow shoveling morning.
One of my lovely neighbors helped me with a real snow plow or this would have taken me all day!
Brooke was halfway reader for snow…only on the upper part of her body. 🙂
So, I mentioned earlier that I had a new job. I will be a ski instructor at Vail this winter for 3-6 year olds! Glorified babysitting? Maybe. Free ski pass? Yep! 🙂
I didn’t drive to work this morning because Vail is a solid 40 minutes from where I live and buckets of snow + driving = disaster. I am going to try to go in this afternoon though….I guess.
It’s been fun so far although strange leaving Brooke behind. I miss her a lot and feel guilty knowing that someone else is spending the day with her…not me. That aspect of it is tough but I think it’ll be fun for both of us and it’s just seasonal so it’s certainly not a lifelong commitment.
How’s the weather where you live? Any tips on driving in snow? Any working mommies out there?
Oh man that looks COLD! And I thought Tahoe was freezing. I think it’s awesome you’re teaching skiing! I learned to ski when I was 3 and I will never forget – “Pizza slice to slow down” and “French Fries to go fast”. It’s gotten really cold here (by SF standards). I’ve never driven in the snow (that’s boyfriend’s arena when we go to Tahoe!) Stay warm!
Also there are zero things cuter than babies in puffy jackets!
It’s been soooo cold like 8 degrees today hah not ok

Sounds like a perfect part time gig! When I started working part- time after my son was born I felt bad, but it gets easier, and it’s nice to get away for a little bit.
Shoveling is a great workout, I wore my heart rate monitor outside last year after a big storm and within 30 minutes i had burned almost 400 calories…and was sweating like it was 100 degrees.
Congrats on the job!
