Where in the World is Sippycups?

No, I haven't completely fallen off the face of the earth! I've been in Steamboat Springs, CO with Dr. Daddy, BabyBoy, BabyGirl and my little brother, Sean. The snow has been AMAZING. We're talking 20 inches in one week. GREAT...IF you like skiing in powder, which I don't. The kids, Dr. D and Seanie Boy have had a blast. Sean is so spoiled...he could ski for twenty more years and never see snow this great. I, on the other hand, have contracted a wicked case of strep throat. So bad, in fact, that I've been literally bedridden for the past two days. I guess the $270 I saved on lift tickets might help pay the ER bill? Thank goodness for 30 minute strep cultures. We were in and out of the Yampa Valley ER in an hour. They were awesome and the Dr. could tell how much pain I was in. She gave me hydrocodone every 4 hrs and it has helped but I honestly don't know how I'm going to get on a plane tomorrow! It was hard enough with the kids and all our stuff when I was feeling fine last Saturday! The bitch of it is...I had been using Zycam swabs since last Friday to PREVENT any illness that might make me miss out on skiing. How's that for irony?
We'll be back late tomorrow evening so I'll post a full report on Sunday.
XOXO Sippycups

Boo! I'm so sorry you have strep. And in such a beautiful place . . . I skied Steamboat many moons ago & absolutely loved the place, although this Californian is no match for that deep powder either.
