Voluntary, Eager Torture

That's what it is. I tortured myself. Physically beat me up and hurt myself. Put myself in danger and could have possibly had much worse results from it.

I went SNOWBOARDING. It was a lot of fun. And I did MUCH better this time than any other time. But I also got pretty beat up. I seem to fall down quite a bit when I snowboard. And my butt still feels the repercussions of such inadequate talent. The slopes were a tad icy. At one point, I did a butt-hit-head-bounce type of landing. Yeah, that was pretty painful. And I continued to fall going down that time. Although it ended up being my last run. The knee is purple from that one. Haha!

It was a FABULOUS weekend. Regardless of the sore muscles and bruised areas that I now have.

This is me - attempting to pose.

This is my friend Jason - who insisted on taking pictures of me on the slopes. I won't put up all the ones of me on the ground. Haha!

And one more - of me IN MOTION!! It was SO FUN!!

I am so impressed...I would never attempt going down a snowy hill with one board..I gotta have two...I would never make it down in one piece if I attempted it on a board...even my friend who was an expert skiier broke her wrist the first thanks...but I am impressed with you... and think you were looking mighty cute on the slopes.

I remember when we used to get really deep snow.

however all we seem to get these days is barely enough to cover the ground
