I have been working the afternoon shift for the last two weeks, 1:30pm – 10:00pm. Tonight is my last shift. It wasn’t too bad, likely because it was over the holidays. Next week, I am back to my normal 7am – 3:00pm shift and it will be welcome. I have enjoyed being able to sleep in a bit, that is always nice. Not that I actually sleep right through, I wake up around 6am anyway to let the dogs out and then try to go back to sleep.
Next weekend, I think I am going to be heading to Red Deer to do hardware replacements in the office and a couple of other offices in the area. I will need to put the dogs into their Pet Resort and I will be staying at some hotel in Red Deer. I am not huge on hotels but it will save some time over commuting.
Baseball registrations for Babe Ruth start this month. I am sure there will be coaches meetings as well. Although I have not committed to coaching again in 2015, I have not said that I won’t so if I am needed again, I will coach. I think this will be my last year coaching though. I didn’t enjoy it as much last summer for some reason, I didn’t have the fire that I used to when I coached in Niagara. I think I will go back to umpiring and be able to set my own schedule as opposed to having one made for me.
Nothing else going on – Calgary had a snowstorm today, 6-8″ of the white stuff, nothing too bad. I hate shoveling but I guess I will be doing that tomorrow. Well, what can ya do, it is January and it is Calgary.
