I'm off to the gym, then to the library. I'm getting my workout done, my calls returned, and my homework done before I worry about things such as sleep today. I may be dead by the time I play hockey tonight, then work all night. Wednesday, I will sleep, pack, go to class, and drive all night for a 4-day Oklahoma getaway. I want to eat turkey, shoot a deer, and sleep a lot.

On the hockey front, I played center last night, but the wingers on my line had no passing skills. I may as well have been playing defense, because I spent the better part of my shifts skating backwards. In fact, the best scoring chances happened when I stole the puck away at center ice, rotated with the left defenseman, passed the puck forward to him, then followed the play. Handing it off to a winger wasn't working. I always look forward to playing on Tuesday with more skilled players. I know where they are going, I can zing the puck to them, then I can get open in front of the net.
The nephew had his tenth birthday. I helped him get an old computer working in his bedroom by swapping out a bad monitor and removing a lot of unnecessary software which was loading at startup. At least he can play Starcraft on it now.
I attended Lake's birthday party for a couple of hours. I didn't stay long enough for cake because I had to run off to work. Someone's grandma died and someone had a kid, so I got scheduled for overtime. I had intended to use the time to study and do homework on Sunday, among other things. Now, I have more than I can possibly get done today and I have to sleep at some point. I skipped my workout. I'm still recovering from a hockey game, anyhow.

I had a stressful week followed by a fun weekend. The theme of the whole thing was family. I attended a great wedding and saw two great families come together for the formation of another one. I also got some financial help from some family members to help me through some of my debt hurdles right now, for which I couldn't be more grateful.
I'm taking a finance class with my brother, which is required for each of us to get our Masters degrees. This is going to be interesting.
Work is going okay. There's a structure to chaos ratio which is starting to balance out for me there.
