Pondering while working...

I have been absent for a while, I’m sorry. I have had a series of unfortunate events. I already mentioned about the car. On Thursday while moving money around I some how managed to lose 50$. Don’t ask how because I have no idea… I wish I did… the only good news is that it affects my car fund which means that it won’t mess up bill payments. But I am still ticked at myself.

I would like to take this time to give a SHOUT OUT to Little Lamb for paying of her Student debt!!! GO GO GO LITTLE LAMB!!!! I so wish I could comment and say congrats!!! I can’t lie I am l little jealous but I think its great that she had hit this great mild stone!!

I spent this past Tuesday and Thursday night in referring training class. The league that I hope to be refing in is my old house league Swansea Girls Hockey (SGHL). If you live in to Toronto area and are looking to find a safe and fun environment for your girl(s) to learn hockey this is the league for you! There is also Swansea Boy’s Hockey as well. We also have a ‘learn to skate program’ for little kids.  All the horror stories that I have heard both from our teachers and the other members in my class are nothing I have experienced in SGHL. In the 15+ years I have been part of the league not 1 parent has been tossed out of the arena, nor have we had to deal with court case of players threatening coaches, other players or refs. It’s a no contact league and when kids nock each other down we help each other get back up. If you’re a parent of kids in hockey how would you describe the behavior of parents, coaches and players in your league? While I was reading the manual and the rule book I was struck by how it seamed to indicate that hockey was a ‘dirty sport’ and there was nothing that could be done about it. If your kids are in hockey is it expected that kids are going to play ‘unsportsmanlike games’?  Maybe because I have seen the other side to the game I expect better. What do you think?

And if your at all sentimental and would like to know how the Hockey Leagues are run the Toronto Star did piece on Boys this past February. And one of the Girls (my league) in February 2010.

  1. Thank you so much! Even though I've paid it off you are still way further ahead than I because you are already kicking you debts in the butt. At your age I was too busy buying new jeans. So you keep up the good work and at my age you won't even be thinking of repaying debts. :)

    Sorry to hear you lost $50. Hopefully it will turn up! Have a great weekend.

  2. Sorry to hear about the $50. That must have been really aggravating.

    The hockey league thing is cool.
