Part of me was looking forward to this week off.
After a very hard loss last week in ice hockey in the playoffs, I was a little drained. I was building myself up to a strong playoff run, and instead we were ousted before it even began. After my game on Friday, I was looking foward to a small break. Two weeks till playoffs. I simply cannot wait.
I have spent the time wisely. I have stayed away from work, photography, and hockey. Three things that consume my life so easily. I have family from out of town up to visit, and my wife likes the extra attention. I have caught up on some episodes of Nip/Tuck on my Tivo, picked up a new hamster (Baxter), bought a couple games for my computer, and visitated. The thought of the week off has been thrilling to say the least. However, I am waiting eagerly for next week to begin. I have missed playing hockey that is for sure.
My ice hockey team is taking the next 8-10 weeks off. I am going to stick with my Copper and Brass teams in roller hockey. If I can, I will jump on a tin or aluminum team as a skater, but that is optional. I am thinking maybe taking an extra team off along with my ice hockey shortage may be a good break. I haven’t decided that though. I would like to keep improving, and I am NOT going to improve by not playing.
It is late, and I need sleep now.
