Well it is going to another warm day here at 85 but then they are only calling for highs in the 70's for the next 3 days. It is going to be a busy day here. Mom goes back to the surgeon for a check up this morning. I am sure that he will want her to do more therapy but it would be nice if he would let her go back to work. he orginally told her should would be off for 8 to 10 weeks and we are now going on week 16. Then I have a few errands to run this afternoon. My face is still a bit swollen this morning but it is not as bad as yesterday. I am still not sure what caused it but it is getting better with the benadryl so I am going to assume it was some kind of allergy. I hope everyone has a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good morning all,


Been up since 5AM, my older son decided he didn't want us to sleep anymore at that point, he is in a wretched mood today. My younger son slept until 8:30, he never sleeps past 7, if they could just sleep in on the same day we wouldn't be so tired. Another B-day party come and gone yesterday, but with more aggravation. The friends who through the party called us 30 mins. before we were to leave to go to the party and said "we didn't buy the hamburgers yet can you pick them up for us" normally it is not a big deal but they do this for every party, where they rely on us or someone else to pick stuff up for them, and they planned this party 2 months ago. My wife was too nice and told them we would but I was miffed that we had to do it again. Went to one store they didn't have any burgers left at that point so drove to another store. I am sorry I am just venting, just frustrated.
Have a good Monday.

Your frustration is understandable !!! Dont appologize for venting !! That is what Christmas friends are for !!! Try to have a great day !!! I would find that frustrating too.

Hello and a Happy Monday to all!! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!!!

I LOVE Mondays - fresh start to the week and the house to myself Lots of stuff to do and since I only slept a few hours this morning I'm making some headway on my to-do list. Yay!! Sometimes it's not so bad not being able to sleep

Good afternoon, everyone!

A little humid in Ottawa today. Chances of thunderstorms throughout the day, but we'll see if they actually amount. I had a meeting for a couple hours this morning in regards to a project that I have to take over for a few months at work. It should be interesting. Thankfully, I was able to sit there and not say a whole lot.

Anyway, I am pretty sore today. As if a seven hour drive yesterday was not enough, doing it after playing for about eight hours on Saturday and six on Sunday will certainly take a toll on the body. I'm glad that I was able to play a lot and still have no major injuries. The hamstring feels great and I hope that I can finally play without having to wrap it in Prague.

There's so much I need to do this week to get ready and so little time. It's unbelievable how fast this has come! Right now, I'm more nervous for finding time to get everything together rather than the plane ride. Perhaps I should write everything down so I don't forget...

Have a great Monday, everyone!! The work week is here but there should be plenty of reasons to celebrate. July 1st is Canada Day and then the 4th of July will cap off the week for everyone in the U.S. Hard to believe we'll be in July on Sunday! That next milestone (2/3 to the Christmas Season!!!) is only 16 days away! Incredible!!

All the best to your mom, Jeff. Great to know that you are with her.
