This is the end...

Today represented the last time I'll be around to drop off and pick up The Happy Boy from pre-school, as I'll be heading back to work on Tuesday from my paternity leave / sick leave. It's kind of sad, actually. I have really enjoyed spending time with both kiddies, and as I recover from my disk / joint problem in my lower back, I find that UrbanMummy and I have been able to finally make headway in the house by cleaning up areas that remained in chaos since we moved - namely her office and the garage.

I do know that I need to get caught up in my classes - started Human Resources Management and Organizational Behaviour II, January 2nd and have fallen behind as a result of my injury and exhaustion.

We have a family vacation coming up - over my birthday - which is either going to be great, or a nightmare, depending on which, if either, child decides to sleep. If neither of them do, then it'll be me toating them around the ship at all hours while their Mummy sleeps. I wonder if they'll let me bring them into the casino.

I watched some of the AllStar game last night - like the new uniforms - they make the players look more in shape than do the old ones, but I really hate to see tradition go out the window. The game itself was a little boring - which figures since the NHL uses the AllStar game to "introduce" Americans to hockey. I felt like I was watching a roller hovkey game. Lots of flash, no substance.

I did catch the end of the Raptors game. Geez. Almost at .500. Great stuff. I really enjoy watching them play and I really like Jose Calderon. Great team player and all around good guy. I'd pay to see him play.

I got rid of all my Toronto Rock tickets for this season... Too much on my plate and not enough support from family to be able to make the 8 games - 6 of which are on Friday nights. Oh well, there is always next season.

Valentine's Day is coming up and I'd love to hear from people what they have done that went over great and what they did that bombed.

welcome back from hiatus...

re: V-Day... since we've had a kid it's been a lot more low-key... one year we did Niagara Falls (got a suite at Embassy Suites with a view of the Falls from the bedroom) which went real well... also, irons and vacuums do not good valentine gifts make... trust me.

it is about time..... Jeeezzzz..... sorry about your return to work although, I am sure, you will breathe deep in the adult smells and sights, that you have missed....

Jeff - Like the idea of the Falls... Have not been there in ages.

Shroomie - Really looking forward to seeing Angela again. That's about it. If I take a deep breath once inside the building, I might wind up turning around and leaving, and never coming back. I dislike the smell of incompetency.

actually baby cakes, I can think of a few good ideas for your valentines day... most don't include the wife.... but ya know, if you think she might like to join in, I will let her watch....

Shroomie - Best offer I've had in years.

She just might. LOL.
