Hockey stories are becoming more and more common on the sports and news sites.  That can only mean one thing.  The regular season is just around the corner.  I cannot wait.

I’ve followed Rose’s Pawn Shop since I ran into them playing outside of Jackson Square in New Orleans back in 2007.  They have a new album that was just released, and this is one of the singles.

Sore but Worth It

The weather was perfect and the yard needed the attention, so I spent most of the weekend out there cleaning things up.  I managed to get four of the flower beds clear of the weeds and dead flowers.  I still have two beds that are in desperate need of some attention, but they may be getting a redesign for next year, so I have to figure that plan out first. The extra rain and cooler temps so far this summer have lead to better luck with my flowers and plants this year.  If I can replicate the success I had in the four beds I cleaned up this weekend to the other two, I might have a pretty nice looking yard next summer.

I also laid out 520lbs (13 bags x 40lbs/each) in the yard.  There must have been a tree in the middle of the backyard at one time, because I had quite a depression/sink hole forming.  After digging up the grass, I discovered it was a little bigger than I thought.  Many bags of topsoil later and some grass seed will lead to a flatter area that is easier to mow.  The remaining bags were used to put a dent in the large depression that I have over in the side yard.  It is still going to need several more bags to level it out, but the ones I put over there today were a good start.  There are few other areas that could use some leveling, but they may have to wait until next year.

I’ll have to make a trip back to Home Depot to get more topsoil and mulch, but I think I was able to get a lot accomplished this weekend.  My sore legs and shoulders are a testament to that.  I am not goign to complain because hauling dirt and pulling weeds is much more enjoyable than shoveling snow.

I would love to get one of these for my kitchen, but they are super expensive.  I would probably be boring and just go with a white one, but the style could look cool in my old house.Big Chill

Hoping for a quick week, but it doesn’t look promising

This is going to be a long week at work.  Most of the applications team is going to be out on PTO throughout the week.  I am the only general applications analyst covering both hospitals Monday through Wednesday because one is out on PTO and the other two are in Boston for training.  That means I am on call Monday-Wednesday as well for issues outside of normal hours.  Our lead clinical analyst is out Thursday and Friday, so the end of the week is going to get any easier.  Pile on-top-of that an overnight downtime of two of our modules on Monday night, which is not the best planning and a little risky if you ask me.  I am going to need a really big drink on Friday afternoon.
