Is she still around my neck of the woods? Perhaps we'll get her to a local gathering.

She is still pining for an old barking bear.

I last had contact with her in the Spring and she was still in your neck of the woods.

Residency can be a bit demanding and I suspect she is still quite busy. She also has her #1 son going off to college and # 1 daughter should be a junior or senior. I suspect she has her hands full right now.

She sounded quite well when we last e-mailed.

She last posted in the LGC III thread

Before that it was intermittent as she had said it would be after she started her residency.
Heck, according to this post, she hadn't even been on her skis in over a year.

Always enjoyed her posts. Hope she stops by soon.

She's been stopping by F88 over on MTBR from time to time.

Seems like she's awfully busy but she's certainly still around.

Only about 20 days, which really bit. Had a couple of exceptionally nice ones but overall it was a thin season. Our little community ski hill, where I volunteer, didn't even open. No snow.

I've been really busy with work, new boyfriend (hard to believe, I know), riding my MTB and climbing when I have rare time off. Took a river trip last weekend, which was large fun. I'm going to be building a new bike over Labor Day weekend.

Can't wait for ski season, though. It'd better be a good one... a few more of my friends have AT gear now and are chomping at the bit to get out there.

Kitties are fine, thanks for asking. Hank the Tank has regained all of the weight he lost and is now the Great Fuzzy Hunter. He plays with his food, which is less than amusing when I find the results. Alex has come out of his little kitty shell and is now a big lover kitty.

Glad to see you! and hope you're having a good summer, too.

HI - I'm still alive - thanks for the concern

There was no skiing for me at all this past year.

Between work and kids and my dad's death in January, I was just simply worn down to nothing. Losing My dad just really took all the wind out of my sails. It was all I could do to just keep putting one foot in front of the other this winter and spring. Didn't have much interest in anything but sleeping and getting my daughter to her rugby matches. Haven't been on the bike but 5 times this summer either.

I'm also broke.
But this time next year I should hopefully be making doctor money, and maybe airfare will be back in the picture, and maybe I'll have a life again and the drive to live it.

Thanks for asking.

Nice to hear from you in "public". Have been viewing the ESA dvd from 06, at Snow bird. I "see you"!. Also been reading my ski log from that trip and Our solo journey back to camp one afternoon. I was beat! ,

(According to my notes). Hope to ski with you again in 08/09 if not sooner. Think I'm a bit stronger now

Take care.

Mark

Just remember you want to set a strong example to your kids of how to LIVE when things are beating you down. That's what I told myself this year. I had to be strong so that my daughter would learn how to be strong and not think it's okay to give up.

Frau, how about local trip to 7 Springs this winter? If you're game, we'd love to make some turns. I'm finding out about the one step at a time having to deal with some trouble too. Good to see you back and here's to doctors pay.

The kids were the main thing that DID keep me holding things together. But I also hope I showed them that it IS okay to cry when you lose someone you love. My dad was a HUGE influence in my life. One of his friends told me that he lost his own dad 20 years ago - but he is still with him every single day. I totally understood that sentiment.

Hang in there with your own stuff too

Rob, I would love to - Lord willin' and the crick don't rise. I need to squirrel away some pennies in the meantime.

I read about your own family struggles - know that my prayers are with all of you.

FRAU, you are an original and one of the people on my most admired list - near the top, in fact.

Live long and prosper - and SKI WITH US!!! BIKE WITH US!!

I lost my father twenty-nine years ago. He is with me always, as is my mother whom we lost not so long ago.

Never having met you personally, your posts have revealed an exceptionally bright, deep, and warm person. You have been missed.
