Feb. 11th, 2007 @ 09:57 pm My butt, finally off it.
Two weeks ago I started a post about being tired of the malaise that seems to have settled in my life. I believe a large part of this is the uncertainty of going through the IVF cycles. But there is also a comfort level that I have fallen into, and a large part of the problem is that we don't do a lot of advance planning. Things just happen in my life, and if they don't happen, I spend my time lazing around.

So I got myself motivated. I told hubby that we were getting the skidoos out of storage and were going to have them ready to head up to the cottage. They were out in the country, so last Saturday we picked them up. This Saturday morning we headed to the cottage to check it out and do a trial run of the machines.

It was awesome! After a bit of a sputtery start we were in. The cottage was in great shape, and there should be no problems going up there for a weekend. We'll bring the pup in with us, I don't want to put him in doggy daycare if we don't have to and I can't wait to spend more winter time up there. It won't be completely roughing it, but there is no running water, no cleared roads, and woodstove for heat. I've started planning our supplies now, hopefully we'll only have a knapsack each for food and clothes. Next weekend is out, but I'm hoping for the weekend after, and the one after that, and so on.

The only real hitch was that I forgot my knitting for the ride up and back. Hmmm...one knapsack for food and clothes. Does that mean I get a second one for books and knitting, or do I spend the weekend hungry and freezing?
Who does she think she is?

I don't think I would give up being hungry and freezing.

Oh it is a blast and the only way we can get into the cottage in the winter...well I suppose we could snowshoe, but, they don't have engines now do they?

That sounds like a wonderful idea. It is really nice to have a place that means so much to your family.

Meeting and rafting would be so cool!

You definitely get a second knapsack for books and knitting. Definitely.

I think I might be able to sell it as 'Chet's' *g*

I will still have to cut down on the usual over packing I do for knitting weekends....

Great job getting motivated!

Personally, I vote for NOT being hungry and frozen, but what do I know?

*gasp* no knitting? No books?

I think I can argue that Chet needs a pack too, and hijack it for my accessories *g*

Fun!!! I have always wanted to go snowmobiling, but I'm afraid I'll freeze to death and I don't own a snowmobile either. *heh*

The new ones are pretty cushy, handlebar warmers, seat warmers and potentially a driver to snuggle up with *g*
