The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

The Good
Right now my excellent husband is in the kitchen making me a batch of homemade sundried tomato pasta. In the winter Todd gets into a cooking kick, and gets very experimental in the kitchen. Last night he made me some baked chicken with orange, ginger and honey on it. Now he's rolling out the homemade pasta. He has also whipped up some homemade pizza dough, and I think he will throw me a pie for dinner tomorrow night. (I love that he knows how to throw the pizza dough in the air, all fancy like.)

The Bad
The deal on the house fell through. The seller backed out in a rather dramatic fashion that involved the tearing up of purchase and sales agreements. We are trying to figure out what we want to do next with regards to a house.

The Ugly
On Sunday we took a day trip to Okemo in Ludlow, VT on a bus organized by New England Action Sports. I brought my new ski boots that I bought two years ago and only skied on once before. The pain in my feet on the first run was excruitiating. I left Todd on the slopes, where he was having a great day without the tell-tale pain in his knees and went into the ski shop to see about getting them adjusted, then went out for another two runs. The pain returned, so I went back into the ski shop to get the linings heat molded. I stood with my knees bent for 15 minutes while I waited for the heat molding to solidify. When I took off the boots, I looked like I'd been in a car accident from the knees down.

For example, this bad boy on my calf:

Anyone want to buy a pair of nearly new Solomon ski boots? They don't fit me so well, but they've only been used twice.
