You know what's even better than heading to the slopes with hubby this Saturday for some much needed snowboarding? Heading out with a happy heart and a revived soul!
That's right people...stressed out, overworked Kristi has taken a major hiatus! Woot woot! I feel giddy with happiness and excitement. (And DL...the bubbles would appear to be supercharged!!!)
Why you ask? I have finally finished ALL work on The Wolf Within, which has, as of late, been consuming me with nervous energy and panic. From my end, the toil is over. And I'm happy with the results. BEYOND happy. I finally love my book baby again and trust me when I say that after the time we have spent together lately, well, it's a major feat. I approved the final bookblock today, the front cover, back cover, and spine. Yay! Something about having it done has been more refreshing than I could have imagined.
And do you know what that means? I shall taunt you beloved readers with it..because...well, because I can and it's fun. I plan on posting a sneak peek of the cover this Monday! I hope everyone loves it as much as I do. I'm sometimes odd so I really hope this isn't another recurrence of what I like to refer to as "alien baby" syndrome. We all know when I'm in love with something I can't be trusted.
In other news...I haven't been snowboarding in quite a while and actually had to pull my winter clothes out of the attic today. This means that I will probably need to actually wax my board tomorrow night in preparation...I'm sure it's been awhile. I can hardly wait.
I have images of me riding down a rail and landing a big jump...Shaun White style of course. In my head it looks magnificent. In real life I'm really not that good. I have never attempted the rails or pipes but have always wanted too. I always chicken out. The jumps I have tried...and even landed...once. The other attempts were failures that only resulted in the largest butt bruise you have ever seen. Apparently landing on a ball of ice after flying through the air is not very good on the hiney.
Don't worry...I will definitely have hubs take video should I attempt anything remotely dangerous so in the off chance I make it, or don't, I will have either proof of my awesomeness or extremely entertaining footage to share with you all. In my mind either situation is a win/win...it's just that one will cause yours truly less pain. Who am I kidding? I have NEVER actually been snowboarding when I didn't wake up the next day aching from every part of my body....in places I didn't know existed. And yet the thrill of flying down the mountain carving the snow is just priceless. I can feel it already. It's youth and joy in a bottle and I'm ready.
Having said all that...it's late and time for bed.
Have a great weekend everyone!!! Stay warm wherever you are (I hear there are plenty of winter storms out there!)
