Not much to say

Good morning! Only 9 days until I'll be skiing! I'm excited!! We'll be staying in a condo with a full kitchen so Stephen and I have planned healthy meals to eat. I'm working on putting together a grocery list (in Excel, of course, so that I can sort by section of the grocery store...yeah, I'm a nerd). We'll be there for 4 days but only skiing for 2 since lift tickets are about $80 a day! I'm so looking forward to the hot tubs!! (And skiing, of course.)

And can I just say that I'm annoyed with the weather right now. 19 degrees this morning? Are you kidding me?? It's March, it's spring, why isn't the weather cooperating? Grrrr.

Not much else to say so I'll leave you with my menu for the day.

Dude I am SO a nerd too. Love excel.

Re: triathlon. Don't let not knowing how to swim stop you if it's something you really want to do. There are lots of adult classes, then you'd have a real accomplishment. Or on the other hand, I've seen at least a couple just running and biking -athlons. sometimes you run twice sometimes it's rowing instead of swimming. Lots of options. Or you could just do a running race. I have found it super motivating.

Justin and I pretty much only go places where there are kitchenettes - we are too cheap and get to grossed out by eating every meal out.

Doncha worry about the grocery list - I write it out by hand but I do organize it by section too!!
