I wasn’t supposed to do this, but I did! about a week ago I fell down while skating and hurt my knee pretty bad. The doctor said I shouldn’t climb this mountain but DD1 really wanted to do it. I was going to ask a friend to take her up with her kids but I figured if I was going to have to get up early, get her ready and DRIVE all the way there, I may as well go up anyway! Then DH said “I’ll do it”… Wait a minute! I’LL DO IT! This is the dear man who finally admitted after being dragged up many a mountain while we were dating that he didn’t like hiking!? “I like hiking” he added. I tried to hold back my surprise and figured that if he would do this and DD2 said she wanted to do it , then we should all just go up.
And so we did. My friend with whom I always do this galloped ahead. DD1 mostly played with the ones I was planning to send her up with. DD2 pretty much went up in her father’s arms and I hobbled behind. The snow was beautiful and I’m glad we did it but DH complained most of the day about his “15kg weight training session”. I spent the rest of the day complaining about my knee ; )
