It's 2008 and I'm back!

Woohoo!! Man, it's been forever! So much has been going on. I think I wrote last from TX. My hubby finished his training there and finally got his wings!!! We moved again, back to FL. We've spent the last 2 months settling in, as we travelled for holidays. We went to visit my family in ATL for thanksgiving, then, my hubby went away for a 2 week training, and I went back t visit my family for that time. Then, it was Christmas! We were home for about a week over Christmas, then, it was off to Colorado for our newish annual friend new years trip. Last year about 10 of us rented a condo in Palm Coast, FL and spent about 4 days together. This year, 14 of us rented a big mountain cabin and went skiing in Winter Park, CO. We were gone for 6 days this time. Isn't it beautiful? I hadn't been skiing since I was too young to remember, but I think I did pretty well. Sore, but well. We skied for 3 days, which was more than enough for some of my Ft Lauderdale friends. I was well prepared, though. I was hardly cold at all, and it was FREEZING! I think the warmest it was the whole time we were there was 25 degrees. We sat by the fire, went in the outdoor hottub (yes, it was cold enough to make our hair freeze!), drank hot cocoa, went sledding, tried to build a snowman...ya know all the fun, cold-weather stuff I don't get to do here. It was an amazing trip. And best of all, we all got to ring in the new year under 1 big roof together. I'm really hoping we can make this a real tradition, at least with the core of friends who have done it both years now. Some of these people we have been friends with since high school, my hubby, even longer. We are all out of college now, people are getting married and moving around the country. Between these trips, and everyone's weddings, we only get to see each other a couple times a year. Next year, we're hoping to shoot for Hawaii! Fingers crossed, hubby and I will be moving there this summer!!!
Anyway, we're home now. He's started back to work, I've started back to school, part time, and I'm looking for a job. I should be blogging more often, now that things have settled. Hope everyone enjoyed their holidays!
