Oops! Just found this in my draft folder. Must have forgotten to post it.
Good news! My husband Bobo recently won an award at work….best mortgage underwriter (nominated by brokers). So he gets a free all expense trip to Whistler, British Columbia. And guess what I told him? He ain’t leaving without me in tow! No way!
WE are going to be staying at the luxurious Fairmont Whistler Hotel. Ba Bing!!! Bobo is none too happy about this event as he says he will have to go to meetings for 3 days. Not me however! I will be taking in the sights and galavanting outdoors!
Damn back, however. You’d better believe that I’d be downhill skiing on those mountains if I didn’t run the risk of fracturing some more of my vertebrates. (I can just hear my Australian cousin saying, “She would be crazy enough to do it too!”). Oh well, heard there is a gondola I could go on. Besides, I guess I could always use the Fairmont’s spa services if I overdo it or the weather is yucky. Afternoon High tea perhaps? Hahaha! Love them scones, fancy little sandwiches and glorious tea! Getting excited! Wish I could invite some friends, though.
After the conference, Bobo is coming back to reality, but not me! I’m going to fulfill an item on my bucket list! Ever since I was in grade 5 and my friend Leanne Murray showed me a picture of her family’s trip to Lake Louise, I have had it in my head to go there. Now’s my chance.
I missed an opportunity to go out West with my cousin from Australia because I was getting married and couldn’t afford it. In 2012, when I was out of commission after surgery to cement my fractured vertebrae and put two titanium metal rods in my back, I vowed if I ever could walk again I would go to Lake Louise (and Italy) and not have any regrets. When my hubby told me he won a trip to BC, I took it as a sign from the Mighty Lord above! I just got handed the perfect opportunity to fulfill my quest! And I was going to take it!
So I have also booked a trip on the Rocky Mountaineer, Gold Service, so some poor sucker who isn’t me, can deal with my baggage everywhere I go. Get my own damn chef too. And I’ll be asking for some champagne as soon as I get on board. This is gonna be fun! I’m going to Kamloops, Banff, Lake Louise and Calgary. And there is some crazy ride on a helicopter (if I don’t chicken out) too.
Like my husband says, “You can’t take it with you”.
I love my husband.
