i just signed up to kill myself

November 15th, 2016 at 09:51 pm

I just signed myself and the two kids for snowboarding lessons in January. $1000 for 4 weekends with rentals for the kids and 2.5 hours of lessons for four Sundays. Ugh. I know the kids will enjoy it and DH is coming to supervise. But this is my first time back since 2009 probably when I injured my ACL. My DH loves it and guilted me into trying it again. I could do this and try to do a family activity or I could sit in the lodge. I figure I'll give it one more try and then i'll sit in the lodge forever. I am terrible at it. I am inherently clumsy and honestly I'm terrified of the chair lifts. Either way I figure I'm investing $220 for 4 lessons to figure out that I can sell my snowboard and never go again.

This might be why I had kids. So I can send them with my DH to enjoy his sporty past-times. I'm more a summer warm weather person. Wish me luck. When I nearly kill myself I'll refer back to this post.

    Ha, ha! Good luck and good health! The kids will be great at it, I'm sure.

    I'm a terrible snowboarded, too, and I'm otherwise very sporty and decent at skiing.

    I never tried snowboarding, but i did try downhill skiing once and it was the chair lift that scared me as much as "the big hill." Those things can be dangerous. If you really don't feel comfortable with it, please don't do it. Although I see you're prepared to go forward with lessons....just be careful.
