I've missed posting! I feel a little like a voyeur just reading others' posts and not contributing my own.

We are about to embark on the most wonderful reason to live in Tucson. No, it's not the weather or the proximity to the border or even the easy access to turquoise jewelry and kachina dolls, it's Rodeo Vacation. Every year we get from 2-3 days of school of in order to enjoy the rodeo. Since no one I know actually goes to the rodeo, you really have three options:

1) go to Disneyland
2) go skiing
3) have eye surgery

I'm going with option #2. I'll be leaving my house tomorrow morning at 3:15 AM (notice I didn't say "bright and early" because it definitely won't be bright and I believe 3 AM is classified more accurately as "late", not "early") to drive the 11 hours to Durango, Colorado. Since I haven't been skiing in 15 years, I am a bit concerned about the outcome. I hope the next time you hear from me I'm not on crutches.

My dad is going with option #3. I'm not sure why, because it doesn't sound fun to me, but you know men.

So, I hope you all enjoy the rodeo as well. Dust those spurs off and practice your ropin' skills.

Have fun you little snow bunny, you.

I hope it's a fun time - I've heard how beautiful Durango is in the summer and bet it's even more so with snow.
