Back to the Routine

3 Oct

It’s been months since I’ve written and I wanted to come back with something important and insightful. To be honest, for the past few weeks I’d start writing something, but end up either unable to finish it or finishing it and deciding it’s not worth posting. So I decided that it’d be best to just come back with something that’s important to me, but likely not important to mostly everyone else (especially on Presidential Debate night).

Every year around this time, I begin my new year with the new NHL hockey season. I set my goals and my New Year’s resolutions, have a countdown, celebrate, and engage in all the typical New Year’s festivities (not really). This year, as you can all imagine, it’s been a real struggle so far. It feels much like a large portion of life is on hold and there isn’t anything I can do about it. After all of the unnecessary cries I heard from NBA fans last year over their lockout, I promised myself I would not complain about this year’s NHL lockout, but who are we kidding! This is ridiculous. With looking forward to this season beginning very soon (I hope), I’ve been watching old games and highlights and thanks to a good friend, I came across this video. It’s pretty sad, but very well done. As we all wait with anticipation, I hope we can offer support to one another during this difficult time. Hang in there friends.

    lol, amy how could you defile the most important night of MY life, debate night, with… the leafs??? LOL… I’m sad for you right now- old reruns, dates passing by slowly on your calendar.. Can I assuage your pain by offering you a Romney one-liner from tonight? Ok, I’ll do it.. “President Obama, you’re entitled to your own house and your own plane, but not to your own facts.” Slapshot.. How’s that for hockey?

      Hahahahahahahaha! If it makes you feel any better, I had you in mind as I defiled debate night with Leafs talk:) Thank you for the Romney slapshot. His stick was on fire last night, but it’s too bad the President didn’t show up to play;)

    HAHAHHAHA. Amy you’re awesome! Last nights debate was like hockey, but with words. Obama’s defense sucked. Romney won the…er, playoffs?

    Ugh. My analogy sucks.

    Is it really bad that I don’t know what a slapshot is?

      Yup. I’ll demonstrate using Amanda’s stick next time I’m over:)
