Good Morning.

Well hold on to your Santa hats, for this new week will see the passing of not one but two more Milestones.

Days to the Season: 205
Days to Christmas Day: 247
Just barely over half a week remains until Milestone #6, the 1/3 Christmas Day mark.
Then, the very next day, the 200-day Season Window opens wide to reveal the "fast track 100's" after which single digits will be here again.
Wow!

Coolish temps were the order for the day yesterday and will repeat their appearance today and tomorrow before warmer weather returns just in time for 'Pines Day.
Right now, we show 42 degrees here in the capital city.

You have a Marvelous Monday, Folks!

Good morning, MMC family! How are you all doing? I know it's been about a week since I've visited, but I'm back. I've been busy doing this and that with the kids. I've sure missed you guys.

How are you all? What's new? Anything exciting? Not a whole lot going on here. I've just been doing this and that. We took the kids to the circus last week and they loved it. We only saw about half of the performance though - about half way through took us to 9:30 pm and the kids were exhausted, which is truly way past their bedtime, so I think next year, we will do a daytime performance. Last night, we celebrated my birthday and my MIL's we a birthday meal at my in-law's house. It was nice to just relax for the family. EA liked it, because she got to the blow the candles out on our cake!

This week, I have a short week at work. I had last night off, which was nice, since I typically don't have Sundays off, then I just work up until Thursday morning, then I am off so we can take the kids to an indoor waterpark, up by Erie, Pa. They are very excited and so am I. We have to come home Saturday afternoon - it's my niece's birthday party, but they will have a blast there as well.

Nothing else is really new here - just the same ol, same ol. Just a year older! I am off to read some of the posts that I've missed, then spend the day with my family. DH and I both work tonight, so I want to get in time with him, before he leaves for work this afternoon.

Hope you all have a great day. God Bless - thinking about all of you, your families, and furbabies! Keep smiling!

Good morning everyone!

Happy double Milestone week. Back at work after an enjoyable weekend. I wish it were longer. Also, I wish I had more sleep. For some reason, I was unable to sleep in on Saturday morning. Then, yesterday, I had tryouts, which I watched as my knee has not yet returned to full strength, at 8 AM. Oh... Temperatures were about -6c (19f) at this time, too. A nice April/Spring morning, isn't it? Mighty cold. Even for Ottawa. Then, I could not seem to sleep last night. Very strange because I usually have no problems falling asleep. Hopefully tonight will be much different.

This morning, we're right around the freezing mark, but we're set to reach highs into the double digits (50s) for much of the work week. I like that! We still have a bit of snow piles hanging around. I'm sure they will be all melted by the end of the week. We're about a month behind in this regard. But that's the weather!

Anyway, I should return to work. I need to work on a couple cover letters. Although I have a job lined up for the next six months, I can never be too secure! Have a great Monday, everyone!
