Anyway, onto reminiscing. This isn't a weather blog, after all. So, here's a little look back on what I was up to at this time last year.
The most momentous event of the month was hitting the hairdresser to cut off my long luscious locks. I replaced them with a Katie Holmes-inspired bob. (And for the past six months I've been waiting impatiently for my hair to grow back! Six months of short hair is more than enough, I tell you!)
In January I also took Ian up for his first-ever downhill ski. He was a champ. After three runs on the bunny hill, I took him all the way up the mountain and he made it down the green run without a single fall. Impressive, right!?
And, I went dogsledding around Pyramid Lake with Ian during Winterstruck. The dogs were SO cute!
I watched amazing street performers contort their bodies into ridiculous poses while wearing leotards in -20 C weather. Yikes! Those ladies were troopers. You couldn't pay me enough to walk around in a skin tight outfit when it's cold. I'm more of a long johns and parka kind of girl.
I also had the pleasure of interviewing my former high school teacher who just so happens to be a musician these days. It was a really weird coincidence, and he wasn't nearly as enthused about it as I was, but whatever... no skin off my back. (Pout.)
I had a -40 C day in Jasper, and I didn't plug my car in the night before so it didn't start in the morning. Let's just say it was a frosty walk to work that morning.
So, that's what I was up to last year. Do you remember what you were doing last January?
