It was a good weekend. Friday night we watched Everyone's Fine with Robert DeNiro. Great flick. We also watched Zombieland. We are suckers for funny zombie movies. Funny!

Then Saturday we took Ellie skiing. We went once last year and she did great. This year she did even better!! Our cousin Andy (once removed, by marriage, etc...) works there and gave her a (free!!) private lesson. I think that helped a lot. I wish I liked to ski. I have been a few times. It always looks so fun. But all I can think about is those torture devices you have to put on your feet. Ski boots are not normal.

Anyhoodle, Ellie had fun. Thank God for Jeff and Megan. They do ski and Ellie had a ball with them after her lesson. Apparently, she is becoming comfortable on the skis and can turn herself and such. If we are going to live where it is winter 11 1/2 months a year (only a slight exagerration) she needs to enjoy the winter sports.

Let's see, in other news, Ellie is getting over pink-eye. It was a mild case but eww! I have never seen so much eye goop. She was a real trooper with the eye drops. I am PHOBIC of eye drops. I know it is ridiculous, but I cannot help it. You know that episode of Friends where Rachel has to put in drops and is scared to? That is me, x 10. I am hoping she didn't get it from the pool where we had swim lessons. I guess we will see on Wednesday.

Also, I have a cold. I am at the "just able to function" level. Today might be a LONG day.

HA! That is one of my very favorite Friends episodes. We were just talking about my love of relating life experiences to Friends this weekend...I'm so glad I'm not the only one!

I've never snow skiied either. Like ever. Never even tried it.

I've only done a little skiing, but I adore it. It's a lot of work to get ready, ride the lift, etc. though!
