Oh Sh*t Son!

detroit_red_wingsWell somehow I havent blogged in what seems like ages.  So much stuff has been going on that I dont even know where to start.  Ive sat down a few times to start typing but give up in a matter of seconds.  I just havent been able to focus.

But THIS has gotten me all sorts of excited that I just had to share with you.  My hometown team the Detroit Red Wings just SWEPT the Columbus Blue Jackets in the first round of hockey playoffs.  I am super excited about this for a few reasons 1) I LOVE me some hockey.  Love love love.  It is very fun to watch (even on tv).  2) The Wings are the shiznit. 

D and I actually love the Wings so much that last year on our honeymoon we set aside a few hours to go and watch the final Stanley Cup Championship game at the ESPN sports bar at New York New York.  It was a crazy fun atmosphere, and the crowd was literally half Wings fans and half Pittsburgh fans.  Like the stuff in movies really.  I even saw the bartender of my favorite micro brewery (weeeeird).  It was fun.  After the game, and the Wings won the championship, D and I bought a cheap bottle of champagne and drank it as we walked down the street cheering.  Yeah… we are super awesome. 

Anyways, Go Red Wings.  Sorry about your bad luck Columbus…. but really it was only your first year in the playoffs… don’t beat yourselves up too much.  🙂

A Nice Diversion

We went to the Red Wings game last night.  We brought Baby Girl, and she was awesome.  The game itself was really good and the Wings won in overtime.  I am not sure why… but it seems like we always go to games that end up in overtime.  Weird.  It was nice to go out and have a good time and forget about everything else.  I definitely enjoyed myself.

Baby Girl’s ear is still hurting her pretty bad.  She was pushing and pulling on it pretty bad last night.  She woke up a few times really early this morning crying… but Im not sure if was her ear or not.  But I will be glad to see the ENT and see if there is anything we can do for her.  And in other good news, the rash is looking better.

Work is still insane, but I am catching up and its getting better.  And I will finally be getting a work laptop next week.  Finally.  That will be nice.  Even thought I dont love the idea of doing work in the evenings, it will make it a lot easier.  And I can use it towards some more vacation time, which I will need.
