So, this past weekend a few of us girls decided to have a girls getaway weekend. We left the husbands, boyfriends and fiancees behind to have their own little getaway (Poker Night) and we loaded up the car with good food and drink and headed off to Waskesiu.
We stayed at the Lost Creek Resort in these oh so cute little cottages. They have several different sizes of cottages from 1 bedroom to 3 bedroom units. They have kitchens, bedrooms, fireplaces, dvd players etc. The kitchens are stocked with the essentials cooking wise. You just need to bring your food and beverages. There are two outdoor hot tubs for use by the guests of the resort. We definitely took advantage of that. They have a firepit for bonfires and a fantastic view of the Northern Lights!!!
I am now quite an expert at finding Orion's Belt, Queen Casseopia, the Big Dipper, Little Dipper and the North Star!
We tried snowshoeing...it was my first time. It was a lot of hard work but very fun. We are pretty sure the people driving or skiing by us thought the funny farm had arrived. The funniest thing about it was that we trekked for about an hour from the resort into Waskesiu Village. We decided to walk back and found, much to our chagrin, that it only took us 10 min. to walk back. Here we thought we had travelled so...ha ha ha!
This weekend getaway was just what was needed ! I find myself quite often consumed with thoughts of the adoption. Agonizing over the wait, when will we hear something, how do we prepare for the arrival of our new little one. I really needed to give my weary brain a break and just have some good old fun! Which we definitely did! We played the Mexican Train tile game (love it) and Rami-O (don't love it - probably because I could never pick the right hand) and watched a little Dirty Dancing with Patrick Swayze!!
