I'd been back all of 1 day and I desperately needed to get out on my snowmobile. I have missed half of the season because I was down south having Ezri. I was also hesitant to snowmobile while 8 months pregnant, but I did manage to get out once, very slowly and also not on the back of Nathan's machine because he can tend to be a bit of a maniac. Generally I like to drive my own machine, I feel completely out of control when I'm riding with someone else and find the experiance way less appealing. I'm a woman in charge, I need to have my own ride.

While I was down south I noticed more snowmobiles driving around the country side and also picked up on tracks in farmers fields. I was clearly sick for my machine and drooled every time I saw someone else riding. I could almost say that I had a little tear in my eye every time I caught someone else on a machine. I knew that I needed to get out as soon as I got back, but didn't know when that would happen with Nathan getting back to work and the baby. Thank goodness I was able to sneak in a small, but tasty trip in yesterday. Thank you handy, diaper changing husband, I think I'll keep you around.

The photo is of my friend Morena and myself out on the frozen inlet, you can see town behind us. We are a couple of Snowmobiling Mammas! Morena also left an infant behind at home while we went out, in fact our kidlets are a mere 12 hours apart in age!

It's good to be back.

When we saw that guy on the machine outside of Strath, you didn't have a tear, you were like "that %*#&# is going to wreck his tread driving on the highway!!!"

Hurray!! You are home!!

Glad you’re back in the big city. There is a group of us that has been going out almost every weekend. It can range from 2 to 10. You guys are welcome to join us if you like. We are planning on going out by the cabins on the way to Fish Lake and have a fire and roast marshmallows and wieners one of these weekends.

We won't be going out next Sunday because the Daytona 500 is on but at least Michele and I will be going out on Saturday depending on the weather.

Give us a call.
