Frozen body parts?

February 6th, 2008 at 04:55 am

This past weekend, the hub, DD3 and I rented a house in a resort a few hours from us. The house was cheaper than a hotel room...and it included a hot tub, movies, puzzles, games, free iternet and long distance, and all the snow we could ever enjoy.

Have you ever hot tubbed in a snowstorm??? wow. The hard part was getting out and running into the house before body parts froze and fell off.

We spent 4days/ 3nights...watched TV, enjoyed the scenery, tubbed, put a puzzle together, bbq'd and visited.

Any idea how nice a little mini-vacation like that is after you've been through---well, some very tough times? wow. We really savored it.

cost for 4 days=$400 + food, which we cooked at 'home' (no meals out).

The hub learned today that he will not have surgery, but rather a shot of something to help with the blown disk. (please let it work!)

My bills have been coming in for the physical therapy after my last pinched nerve...and the sweetest words known to these eyes...."Patient has no financial obligation for this bill, paid in full" (so dual insurance does have it's value!!)

Tomorrow. My job became self insured this tomorrow, we have an opportunity to join (for free) an 8 month wellness program to help us get healthy. I will have to be weighed (gads) pricked,measured (wt..?) checked and fill out a personal evaluation...but when it is all said and done, I will receive a roadmap to help me get from here to healthy in 8 short months. If I succeed, there is at least a $50 bill waiting for me to spend however I want...not to mention a cache of wonderful prizes to be won.

So, tomorrow is day one. Pray for me...I am a non-recovering junk food junkie lately.

Life seems to be slowly turning around and promising to be rich and rewarding once again.. It is amazing how your perspectives change on what is important and what is trivial.

Just let me make it through the weigh in without fainting or breaking the Then, it should be downhill to health and....well, we shall see!!

    I hot tubbed in the snow, though it wasn't snowing. Even though the tub was right by the door, we all egged each other on to get out of the tub, run into the yard, roll around in the snow and run back to the tub. It was awesome though my skin felt hot and prickly for awhile in the tub. We couldn't have done it last week in the below-zero weather!

    One New Years Eve we camped near a hot spring. So we were in the snow, in the hot spring, with champagne. There was only one problem with this plan - we wanted to stay up until midnight...but by 8:30pm we were done and were asleep in our tents. 4 hrs is a lotta reagent grade dark to get through.
