My friend Jody and I moved to Jasper the summer before we finished university. We wanted a fun summer before "real life" kicked in.
I remember the night Trooper played at the local pub, the Atha B. This song because our theme for that summer. Because truly we were there for a good time, not a long time.
Point is. It's so important to have a good time. We can get so caught up in what we should be doing - i.e. working, house stuff, errands. We stress about money, kids drama, potty training. Life is busy and stressful and sometimes we forget about the fun.
My husband took the day off of work yesterday and we blasted out to the mountains. I've skied a lot over the years and this was one of the best ski days ever. The snow was amazing. The sun was shining. The temperature was perfect. The conditions were stellar. We skied hard. And everytime I turned around the kids were literally on my heels. They were shredding like they've never done before. And It. Was. Fun.
We laughed and did fast groomed runs. We screamed through the tree runs. We took jumps and we rested and layed in the snow.
We had so much fun. We skied a full day with no complaining. Even with a few yard sales, the kids were amazing.
It was a good day to be a Schuba.
This song was playing on the drive home and it was a good reminder that life doesn't have to be all business all the time. It's good to lighten up once in a while and enjoy these moments.
Cause we're here for a good time. Not a long time. So have a good time. The sun can't shine every day.
