Ha ha! I guess I should have checked the weather because I could have set it under the porch awning if I knew that. It will be okay. It should have been dried before it rained but now I have to wait for the water to completely dry before I can finish painting it.

Sorry I'm a slacker on here! It's going to be a very busy day today so I will try to catch up on here later.

Have the most Merriest Day Ever!!!
We all need to slack every now and then.

It is amazing how much Christmas music relaxes me.

Good afternoon,

I did my running around, including getting my haircut done this morning. Now I have to clean a little. I hope everyone is having a good day.

Not much is new here. My week became more busy yesterday. I received a call for an interview for a Program Officer position with the Ottawa Carleton Ultimate Association. I'm excited. I really need to perform well at this interview. Aside from education, I think getting into the sports field would be my best interest. I am really starting to pursue it hard. Of course, having played competitive Ultimate since 2006, a job with OCUA would be incredible. Wish me luck!!

Other than the interview tomorrow evening, I have a couple of assignments to complete for my class as well as the usual working out and other things. I hope everyone has been having a great week so far. The 'Pines should be in full swing tomorrow! Have a great Tuesday!

Good Luck!!!!!


I've heard that Carl has a special guest lined up for tomorrow.

Ain't that the truth? I am sure, though, that it was needed. I would also be willing to bet that someone lower on the pole had suggested it a long time ago. Of course it wasn't a priority then!!! I see that (oops, SAW that) a lot. For example, I was a proponent of having locked classroom doors all day long for over 20 years. We were told we could lock the doors, BUT we would have to have a door block on (a thingy that wraps around the door handles) so the door would stay ajar. Then with the shootings in Sandy Hook, we were given the option of locking and fully closing the door or of locking and using the door block. Some things just don't make sense!

Say it ain't so, MGRamsey!!! The Braves and the Dodgers??? Of course when I say Yankees, I get booed on here. No one knows a good team, LOL! But I have been a Yankees fan ever since I was first in grade school. I remember watching them at least from the time I was in second grade, way back in 1954!!!

After Braves games are completed, I enjoy listening to Vince Scully broadcast the Dodgers home games from LA. I can usually get 3 innings in before heading to bed.

I don't think I need to wish you luck; you can do this! I truly hope you get the job. When will you find out for sure?
