Day 8 – Team Skiing

But it really feels like Day 7, what happened to Monday?

The weekend went by fast, especially since I spent it at my aunt’s house and skiing Cypress Mountain. Luckily, they were also undertaking a “healthy eating” diet by cutting out all flour, sugar, and wheat for a month. This is not a diet practice that I entirely agree with, because it seems like a temporary weight loss solution, as opposed to long-term. However, it helped facilitate my health goals while I was there.

Itsy Bitsy Spider..


I should have adopted a cat. They are furry, cute, and most importantly they eat spiders. I would not necessarily classify myself as a person who has an irrational fear of spiders; however, I have woken up from a dead sleep truly believing that spiders were crawling all over my face and body. I have also found myself trapped in the bathroom while a spider foe attacks me and takes claim to the tiled floor. In these situations, luckily, Trevor has come to my rescue and killed the giant spider before it could sink its vampiric teeth into my flesh. Unfortunately, it was also my fear of spiders that  led to his unhappy discovery that, in fact, girls do poop (He chose to believe girls “magically” did not). For couples everywhere, I would not recommend this method to overcome relationship barriers.
