I hope that everyone had a Merry Christmas. Mine was good, busy, but it was nice to spend time with family. Being a teacher, it is nice not having to go back to work until January 7, but even with the days off its still busy.
The last few days have been spent returning gifts, cleaning up the mess that the holiday season has made of my house, working out, and hanging out with my girlfriend (Christie) and dog (Mason). This is something that I dont get a chance to do a lot. Working everyday and traveling every weekend can put a real strain on a relationship, so these past few days and next week have and will be nice.
The indoor season starts tomorrow night for Colorado and Edmonton. With the NLL strike, our first game was supposed to be this weekend, but we now have to wait until January 12 when we travel out to Portland. I cant wait for the season to begin. We have been practicing for what feels like forever and we still have three more weeks to go. The next three weeks are going to be very important to us, we still have a lot of work to do as a team to get ready for the seson and to show the naysayers that even though we have a lot of Americans, we can compete with the rest of the league.
Anyways, I hope that everyone has a happy new year and I will catch you agin in 08.
