Chris was on call this past weekend so as usual that meant sticking close to home. I really can't even remember what we did on Friday, if anything. Saturday was spent working around here, we were supposed to go to a friends house warming party but Chris ended up getting a call and most of our evening was spent doing that. Normally on the weekends when Chris is on call I will go with him. I don't mind cause I get free drinks at Starbucks and it gives me time to catch up on any reading I might be in the middle of. Sunday we were getting ready for church when Chris got another call that he couldn't put off as both of their machines were down. So I crawled back into bed and he was gone at that store for around 3 hours. Later in the evening we went to a BBQ at Jeff and Carolynne's. It was our "post season bbq" for all the softball folk. Good times, almost all the guys showed up that were on the team except one who moved and another who just couldn't make it. Chris was pleasantly surprised to find out that Jeff had blown up a team picture and had all the guys sign it and also gave him a softball signed by all the guys in one of those little cases. A thank you for getting the team together and dealing with it all. Fun times. That was our weekend, nothing too exciting.

Chris has his knee surgery tomorrow afternoon and he just found out this morning he is going to Seattle Sept 19-23 for training on some new machines. Fun for him cause he gets to spend some time with his fam and with Shawn and Celeste. I wish I could go but it's a little too short notice for us to fork up the money for a plane ticket for me. That and we aren't prepared to pay for boarding for the dog for a week.

I know I have been saying this a lot lately but the weeks are flying by right now. I cannot believe that tomorrow is September 1st. INSANE! And never mind the weeks flying by, this last year has gone by so fast. Our one year anniversary is coming up on September 12 and we have lived in Boston now for almost a year. I sit here trying to figure out where this last year has gone. For the most part it has been a great year for both Chris and myself. But how it has gone by this stinking fast is beyond me.

What does Chris do?? The whole machine talk has thrown me off! I can't believe the summer is almost over either! I love summer!! I am glad you had a good weekend.

Hey! I hate that summer is coming to an end...8 friggin months of snow and being cooped up in the house are not my idea of fun.

This morning as I was walking to my building at work I was thinking about how sad I was that summer would be coming to an end...This will be a scary winter-no chinooks to warm me up and melt the snow.

Shelley Chris works for Starbucks, he is an Equipment Technician, so when ever the stores have stuff break he has to go fix their machines and stuff. His area is downtown Boston and he has something like 30 stores that he is in charge of. He's work for Starbucks for 3 1/2 years, the last being here in Boston.

I am kinda excited to see a new weather pattern this winter. Jeremy says that it rarely - if ever - snows here. HOW EXCITING to get out of the -30 degrees celsius weather that can envelope Calgary.

So what are you reading anyway?

How did the surgery go? Thinking of you guys. Did you get to watch? Take pics? Anything?
