Seeing snow for the first time
Wednesday, April 06, 2016
I am happy with myself for recently doing something outside my normal comfort zone. I took my grandsons 300+ miles up to the snow in Northern California. They had complained that they were CA natives of advanced age (haha) that have never been in the snow! So off we went to Strawberry, CA for a 3 day vacation - just me and the boys. Took them to a snow tube park and we had the best time. They were also excited to stay at a hotel with a hot tub. Our drive on Highway 108 could not have been more beautiful. Sweeping vistas of green from the winter rain - looked like Ireland. Poppies and lupin blooming happily. I am feeling so good after quitting the meds that made me so very sluggish and depressed. This trip would not have been possible then. I have gained 3.4 pounds due to going off Topamax. But our delight with our little vacation made every ounce worth it. I love my guys so much.
