My middle week here was very hard with a huge bout of homesickness and lots of tears not just from me either. Jordan could not get Monique online and was becoming desperate to talk to her and Cameron was just plain tired! Spud and I had a couple of run ins which is to be expected when you are spending this amount of time with each other and are so not used to it. All credit to each other though; we recognized why we were fighting, stepped back a little and gave each other some room and time out
We have also managed to have a couple of big nights; I love the bar downstairs called Parrot Eyes where you have hula hoop and beer drinking contests. It is so tacky it is great. Scotty came over for a night which turned out to be just a big alcohol fest. He arrived at 5pm on a Tuesday night, we went to bed at 5am Wednesday morning and he left at 10am Wednesday morning! I did not manage to make it out of bed all day. The fishbowl at Parrot Eyes holds about 3 liters of alcohol and I would have drunk 75% of it myself! The bars here are great and there is always something going on or someone on holiday.
Bernadette and I had a girls day out on my last day here with massages, steam rooms and hot pools! Then after a big lunch, we both had to go home for a sleep. I will miss the companionship of having another adult female around. I have enjoyed having a good scrabble partner apart from the computer.
The weather at Keystone has turned out to be the stuff they write about in all the ski travel magazines, big blue skies, sunny warm days and no wind. It has been beautiful but I think the locals are hoping and praying for more snow. As for me, I have seen enough snow to last me about 16 months!
