My vacation is nearly over. I have been off of work since the 4th of September. I don’t remember when the last time I took two weeks off of work, if I ever have. I might have once, over the Christmas holidays, that was a while ago. All in all, it has been a pretty relaxing two weeks.
My trip to Ontario was not what I expected, unfortunately. It was a shortened trip but it was nice to see family and friends. I got to go back to one of my favourite old haunts, Duff’s Pizzeria. It was as good as I remember it being as well – nothing changed, the pizza and wings were awesome. I didn’t get to see everyone that I wanted to, but that happens in a shortened trip I guess.
This week has been good – the dogs and I have spent a fair amount of time at the dog parks around Calgary. Yesterday, we visited Sue Higgins Park and they splashed around in the river for a bit, a tired dog is a happy dog, or so I have heard. I think we might tackle Nose Hill Park tomorrow. Hera has not been there before, Blondie, Zeus and I were there shortly after we moved to Calgary and made the mistake of walking the entire park. We won’t do that again.
The weekend is supposed to be nice, weather wise. I have a ball game tonight at 5pm and another tomorrow morning at 10am. The 10am game is going to start out a little cold, today’s should be good. I am looking forward to getting back on the field, it has been two months now since I’ve coached a game. The team looks solid, we will see how we do on the field.
On Monday, I am back to my regular shift, no more flex days so no more early morning starts. Back to 6:30am, Monday through Friday. I am actually almost looking forward to getting back to work. I feel like I have been retired the last two weeks, it is nice, but a regular routine is nicer, for now.
Enjoy your weekend, wherever you might be.
