We did our Christmas shopping, what was left of it, early yesterday morning. We left the house at 10:30, an hour later than I intended, and got out of the mall sometime around 1. It was starting to get pretty packed in there, so I was glad to leave. Our shopping is now done! Woohoo! I think this is the earliest I have ever got all my shopping done. Well, not all. I have a few things I have to get today, but they’re not really gifts so it doesn’t count.
I decided that I have a very odd shopping list today:
1. Christmas tree and decorations
2. tennis balls (for Porter, he has no toys)
3. 2 yo-yos, intermediate
4. X2 dvd
5. toilet paper
What’s really cool is that I can get them all at the same place, Canadian Tire! Er, except the DVD, I’m actually getting that from a friend’s store.
I’m leaving as close to 9 as I can, to beat the rush.
Wayde and I watched Vanilla Sky yesterday. I really liked it. I love those surreal-like movies that keep you guessing. I coulda done without the d r a w n out ending. It was probably about 5 minutes too long, at least, but I still liked the movie.
We also rented Mechassault and the new X-Men fighting game for the weekend. I’m not normally a “mech” kinda girl, the PC mech games are usually a little to much for me (all those keyboard controls, agh!) but the X-box game is just arcadish enough for me to handle. The game looks great too — it reminds me of Halo. The X-Men fighting game is kinda neat too. As usual, I kick Wayde’s butt when we first start playing, and he gets a little frustrated. Hehe. If we owned the game, he’d eventually get good enough to be some real competition for me. 🙂
I’m going to my team’s game this morning. I was pleasantly surprised last week when they asked me to join the team as part of the staff since I can’t be on the ice. Of course I said yes! It makes me feel like part of the team and also lets me know that they are serious about keeping me around so I can play again for them next season, when I’m not pregnant. Whew! I don’t know what I’d do without hockey! I suppose I could play on the Rec League, or hope that another OWHA team needs a goalie…not too comforting. The Rec League might not take me since I play at a “too high” level (the reason they gave me two years ago).
Breakfast and a hockey game…what a great way to start the day! I’m off!
I decided to actually update my blog, woohoo! Things are finally settling down here. The move is done and I’ve started work full time. Hockey season is under way too, and I’ve been playing a LOT of hockey. It’s so nice to be back into it. My performance level doesn’t seem to be where it should be, but then I could be imagining myslf being better in previous years. I’ll pick it up, I’m sure.
I’ve added my blogrolls into my menu on the left. I’ve left them out for so long because, well, it’s so long. I’ll be going through and cleaning it out. There are a few links I’d like to remove anyway. I’ve also added the blogroll from Bruce’s site.
I have so much to say that I don’t even know what to say.
I briefly met our new neighbors last week when Bruce and I were on our way out the door in the morning. They have a little boy too, although he looks to be around four or so.
It’s so awesome having all this space in the house. I love it. My computer is in the rec room, which is long enough to accomodate the couch and home theater, a futon in front of the fireplace, and my desk in a corner, with space left over. It’s not crowded in here at all. This is easily the coziest room, and biggest room, in the house. It’s basically the reason why we bought it. 🙂 The kitchen is awesome too, nice and big with lots of cabinets…and a dishwasher. OMG, you have no idea how much I appreciate that.
It seems to me that Wal-Mart is more concerned about getting their customer back than the woman’s health.
