The view from the Gondola heading into town. I love this place so much. I went home for Thanksgiving and got to spend lots of time with family and friends. It was so much fun! Tim and I worked out together but were too sore to continue the rest of the week. Pathetic, I know. My baby cousins are getting so big it is crazy!
Dana, Tim and I attempted to get tattoos together on an impulse. The people that worked at the tattoo shop were really rude and charged WAY too much so it was a no go.
I flew back to Telluride on Saturday and had to land in Cortez because it was too dangerous to land in Telluride. So my day of travel was complete after 16 hours. I was exhausted but went out to see people anyway. The mountain is opened so we have been skiing as much as possible! There are only 2 runs open because we need a few good snow storms and the resort is trying to save money. It has been snowing quite a bit since Thanksgiving so that is a good thing! I cannot wait for more runs to open.
I got a job with an awesome daycare center based on child development. I absolutely love it! The babies are adorable. It is only infants and toddlers up to the age of 3. My boss is great and the staff is as well. I have snow college for ski instructing this weekend and an interview for a waitressing position in town on Friday. Then I will have to decide where I will make the most money and let go of one of my jobs. My goal is to make as much money as possible while being a ski bum. We will see how well that turns out...at least my apartment building is right on the mountain and rent is dirt cheap!
Last night was Noel night in town. Every shop had sales and the bars and restaurants had specials. There were tons of people hanging out around town. It was a lot of fun! The Christmas tree lighting was cute and all the shops put up their holiday lights. I am in love with this town! Amanda got a job at Slope Styles, a snowboarding shop. She seems to really like it, I am so happy she found something fun! She also interviewed at the restaurant in town to be a waitress. We are both hoping to work there, the cash would be splendid! Plus it is mexican food -- can't go wrong there!
Well, that is all for now. Hasta Luego!
