It was a nice long weekend of skiing. Saturday was unbelievably nice with clear skies and temps in the mid 30's. Sunday was unbelievable but the complete opposite of Saturday, it was cloudy and snowed all day long. The skiing was great yesterday with up to six inches by the time we left the mountain at four o'clock. However, I will refrain from the actual skiing talk and focus more on the other part of the weekend. I had some guests this weekend, John and Suha. It was great to have them up so they could finally see where all of my stories come from. The highlight of the trip would have to be when John got dropped off from the bar by one of the workers at the bar. Upon getting into our apartment building he didn't know which apartment was ours so he proceeded to enter different apartments until he found the correct one. So CLASSIC!!! Those guys were so sore from snowboarding all day long and to top it all off Suha fell down our stairs officially crowning him as the first person to fall down them, though I am sure he won't be the last. I think a good was had by all.
I did have one annoyance from the weekend, the American Skiing Company has brought back the Prime Time season pass. For only $199, you get an All East pass for the rest of the season at five mountains. It is frustrating for me, because I paid $1500, and I am sure it is not exactly the best news for the people who recently spent $500 on a MeTicket. They can use four of their tickets for a pass, but the rest of the tix have to be used by friends and family. I guess if it helps them to make money and allows them to someday add more trails it is for the better.
It was tough coming back to work this morning. I am truly lacking in motiviation especially since I had such a great weekend. Time to focus and get cracking though. Wish me luck only five more days until Bethel. :o)

He feels the falling dark
How he longs to be
Beneath his dreaming tree
