Ahhh…a break

With the 4th of July holiday approaching, it is not hockey I look forward to but the break that I have around the holiday.  My MBA class is over for the semester as well, which means all I will be doing is heading home after work and resting.  I need a slight break after everything I have been up to.

My MBA class was only the tip of the iceberg.  I scored a B+ in BUSN650 which is very respectable.  I still have 9 classes to go and won’t graduate until 2013, but that is just fine.  With so many other things in the mix right now, getting my MBA is not my main goal.

Hockey has treated me very well as of late.  Who Cares started out with a 1-4 record, and we have moved up to 3-5 with an outside chance to make playoffs.  My Marketlab team continues to do well as we beat the top team in the division last night.  With 2 games to go, if we win 1 of the next 2 we should capture our first division championship since Winter 2009 when the top teams came down to play in our division.  Now all we have to do is get all our players to show up on playoff Saturday and I will be quite happy.

Ice hockey has treated me well too.  We won our first game last week and I feel that we are finally turning the corner.  This division is not a beginner division, but I think we will have a few more wins before its all said and done.  The real fun is playing ice with good friends that I have known for a long time.

Now, I turn to the break.  I have ice hockey on Tuesday next week, but that will be my last game for over a week.  Time to let my body heal up, and boy do I need it.  My brother plays as much as I do and he told me yesterday that he is all beat up.  Well, the difference is that my body is not only beat up, but I am sore for days afterward.  Yesterday during my game, when I went down in butterfly I felt a few muscles in my legs rebel against me a bit.  It was my 3rd game in a row, and was quite glad it was over.  Today, I don’t feel like doing much physically.  Thankfully, I have a desk job.

I have a packed weekend with a little work, some relaxing at home, a wedding on Saturday, and lots of sleep around that.  Ah, its the simple things in life you treasure.
