Last night was the Calgary offices mid-season event. It was well attended, we took in the Calgary Roughnecks game at the Saddledome. There were two guys from other offices in Calgary for a few days and I was able to get tickets for them as well. One of them got caught up with some IT issues so he wasn’t able to attend, the other, from our National office appeared to have a good time.
The Roughnecks have had a rough season but ran away early with this game – It was 6-0 early in the first quarter. They ended up winning by about 7 goals, it was a pretty exciting game. It was good seeing co-workers who I have not seen in some time since I have been working from home for nearly 3 years. I guess that I could make the occasional visit into the office, but thus far, I haven’t gone in too often. The last time was a half day back in August of 2015, so perhaps I am due. I sat with a bunch of people from our Solutions group, it was good catching up with them. I ate typical stadium food, chicken fingers, fries, nachos and ice cream – such a healthy evening.
I got home later than I have been out recently, it was just about 11. Not late, but for me. later than normal, that’s for sure. The dogs were happy to see me. Always nice coming home to dogs who are happy and a house that hasn’t been destroyed.
Today was a cold and snowy day. I am certainly looking forward to the end of winter this year. It has been a long, cold and snowy one – a real winter, I guess. We didn’t do too much today, we napped, watched the end of the Jays game (they lose) and the Flames game (well, we napped for a second time during the second period) and the Flames won on 4 unanswered goals in the first period, beating the visiting Islanders 5-1. I had a HUGE bet of 5 cents on with a friend from Ontario and look forward to collecting my winnings when I visit.
So, the weekend is nearly over – another one has zipped on by. Hope yours was good.
