Happy Thanksgiving

Chris and I took a short break during the day and went to the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park. Was nice just to sit and enjoy the scenery around us while sipping some yummy Jasmine tea.

The utterz is a wee bit hard to understand as we kept talking over one another (attention hounds that we are), but I posted it anyway. :)

Ski Haus Officially Full!!

Very happy as we have found our last member and now our sole focus is on tearing up the mountains, nice long soaks in the hot tub and a bottle [or two] of port in front of the fireplace.
Now, if only I had remembered to get my ass in shape...

A fractured shoulder, a faulty pace maker and the removal of a bladder...

They say things happen in threes. All I can hope is that statement holds true. I can't take in anymore bad news.

Over the last three weeks, three of my family members have experienced three separate 'incidents', ending with all three of them paying a visit to the hospital (two of them still there).

  1. First my great aunt fell down a flight of stairs and ended up fracturing her shoulder.
  2. Then I find out my grandpa faints at a conference thanks to a faulty pace maker.
  3. This past Monday I spent the day at Stanford hospital as we rallied around my uncle who has been battling cancer. They ended up removing his bladder and a couple of other body parts.
As we get older, I know the chances of hospital visits increases. But it doesn't lessen the suck level any and the last two months have really confirmed how fragile life truly is (especially following the near miss of killing Heuer and myself).

Not to be a drama queen, but hug the ones you love. Hug them often. Tell them you love them. Find time to be with them.

Appreciate the moments of your life.

Looking for a ski 'hausmate'

This is the time of year I love. Ski season is closing in on us.

We are just about three weeks from taking ownership of a lovely house for the Winter season (12/1/07 - 4/30/08) and find ourselves in need of one more house mate.

The house is extremely well kept and has 4 bedrooms, 3 baths with a loft and a den. TVS in most of the bedrooms. 2c garage. Hot tub. Wireless. We are a block down from the Tahoe Donner Recreation Center, so there is a gym and pool really close by.

We are a group in our 30's and early 40's, both boys and girls, some singles, some couples, some skiers, some boarders. While we have been known to throw back a few shots at the bar, most of us are laid back and prefer home cooked meals with a couple bottles of wine.

Want to hit the mountains with us? If so, shoot me an email at kristiewells [at] gmail [dot] com.

Keeping my mouth shut. For now at least.
