All is good and some new previews

A lady came and looked at the house last week and asked if she could bring someone round to check out the roof, electrical, plumbing etc on Sunday. Of cours I said no problem, not going to turn down a potential buyer. They came today, during supper of course, but oh well. Let's see if anything comes of it. I already have an offer in so it would have to be a cash offer and close to what I accepted conditionally we'll see.....

Thank you to those who left messages at 4Shared for the B-man and his disappointment at not making the team. He was ok yesterday and then today felt a lot better when we found out they went with the minimum amount of minors they can have, 5. I tell you our house league teams will be tough to beat with all these former travel players in there, but it will also be unfair to those kids who have only played house league, why you ask? In the travel system they have been allowed to body check for 2 years already, house league PeeWee is the first year. Now Hockey Canada changed the rules and have disallowed checking in Atom travel this year as well. I so wish we would go back to a minor/major system instead of A/AE..........the size difference between 10/11 year olds and 11/12 year olds is huge. I have a hockey conversation with him I would like to share, it's cute:
B-so mom, how much does house league cost?
me-$520, it's already paid. Had to in order to register you back in March
B-ok, you have to pay more?
me- no that was for travel hockey, it was $575
B-so you paid $575 for travel
me-that was on top of the $520, the other was travel fees
B-you paid over a $1000 for me to play hockey?
me-yep, and we had to pay for tryouts too, that was $100 last year
me-add the hotel room when you had tournaments
B-no wonder we haven't been on vacation, you weren't joking when you said hockey season was our vacation
me-*laugh* very true
Love my boy :)

It's nice that your boy appreciates what you put into his hockey. Your layouts are beautiful and gorgeous kits too.
