I spoke with BP this afternoon on my way back to work. He has decided to come out to Calgary for the Stampede week so that’s great. I have requested the time off of work. His flight isn’t going to be cheap, that’s for sure. Good thing that BP always “has enough”.
I am booking the Friday off and then the entire next week. It seems weird getting vacation time in my first year with a new company. I will have been here for about 3 months when I take the week off – in fact, I think that my probation will end as soon as I return.
I have no been to Stampede since 1986. I would imagine that it, along with everything else in Calgary has grown. Should be a blast.
I umpire again tonight. I have verified the park location so there shouldn’t be any issues with getting to the correct location this time around. It is a 9 inning game, I am glad that there is no humidity in Calgary. Not sure what level it is that I am covering, I think it is Midget AA but I could be wrong.
I am off on Friday – they are calling for rain… Figures… I am getting the out of province rip-off vehicle inspection done and I think that I will get plates for it but I will hold off for now on switching my drivers license. Too many expenses all at once.
I have also switched schedules at work. The Calgary office keeps slightly different hours in the summer so I am now working 8AM-4:45PM (with a 1:15 lunch). Works well for me. I am up early in the morning anyway.
That’s it for now – getting back to it.
