That's right. One day.

Well about 20 hours and 12 minutes if you want to be exact.

Woo hoo!

I've been trying to post for days now but the new version of blogger has been a bit of a nightmare to get up and running so I am back to the old one. Perhaps I check out wordpress next week while I am off though I keep thinking that I might be ready to retire this blog thing.

We're down to 2 days on the countdown clock. Its funny, the days flew by through most of December but the last few have felt like the longest days of my life. Hopefully time will continue to move slowly while Trent is here and January 5th won't come too soon. We have a full itinerary for his visit. Most of it involves refusing to make any firm plans and restricting group activities to one per group, although the BMO crew seem to think they are getting two. Hey...if they want to come join us for the Polar Bear Dip on New Years Day they are more than welcome but I'm betting there aren't any takers.

As for actual plans, New Years Eve we are off to Niki & John's for dinner. Then on New Years Day after the Polar Bear Dip we are heading to Jennifer, Greg and Ben's for a little open house action. After that we don't have any set plans for most of the week other than meeting up with Trent's Deline roommate to drop off some stuff to be shipped up North.

It's 8:37 AM and I am ready to go home. This is going to be a long day!

Yes, it's been quite a while since I have posted anything.

I've been busy, to say the least. But as of about midnight last night I am officially ready for Christmas. Well, just about. I still need to do laundry and then figure out how I am going to fit any clothes into my carry-on suitcase that is already breaming with Christmas gifts.

We celebrated the HOF Christmas last night. I can't wait to see the photos as Tat said I looked great in a couple of them. I know I was 'cheese'ing from this side of the phone so fingers are crossed that they turned out well. Each year we choose names and as I wasn't in town to do the actual choosing Lt. Dan wrote a little script to do the name pulling. For the first time in years I didn't get #3 as the person to buy for but she still got me. I got a great learn to knit book, some needle and yarn. The yarn was chosen with Trent in mind so like it or not (and he claims that he would wear anything I made him - FOOL) he's getting my first creation which will be a scarf. I can't wait to get started.

Just two more days of work then its off to the airport. I hate the red-eye but knowing that Trent and I will get to hang out for a couple of hours before we each jump on our connecting flights home will definitely make it worth while. We managed to book flights that land 4 minutes apart at Pearson on Friday...and it really was more of a coincidence than planning on our part.

Anyways...must get myself cleaned up and out the door to go and meet the marathon people.

Whistler was great yesterday. It's unbelieveable how much snow there already is up there. I managed to find a few runs with a bit of powder but I can't wait to hit the bowls later in the season after a fresh snow fall. It's a great time of year to be up there because its not too busy never have to stand in line for a lift more than, say a minute. It was sweet. Caught a few pictures with the party camera. They certainly do don't the day justice.

Woo Hoo! Off to Whistler in the morning for my first day of boarding this season. I can't wait. Making it an early night as I am still getting over my cold and want to have lots of energy for what I expect to be an exhausting day. Just need to dig out all my gear and make sure the board is all tuned up. Woo hoo!

Then tomorrow night its dinner with Jackie. Woo Hoo x 2!
