Super Rio! we can be all hopped up on hormones at the same time Mia, I say- don't put your life on hold - celebrate the time you have with DH and your anni, maybe a weekend away, but skiing may be pushing it if you're on the 2ww- perhaps sippin cocoa by the fire at the lodge, and let him do the down...
