Day 216

Posted 10/13/2020

Day 216: Heather's gone, I don't recall her getting up or leaving or anything this morning... Apparently the alarm to get Lawson up for school didn't wake me either. Eventually we both crawled out of bed and met in the kitchen. Now I'm one of those good parents the teachers like... What do I do that is special? If the boy is up too late, rather than waking him up in the morning, I let him sleep in and drive him to school... How does this help? Boy with no sleep is an ass hat the whole next day... I say they would rather deal with late in Lawson rather than ass hat Lawson any day of the week. They may not know what I do for them but I feel it goes beyond what most parents would consider normal. You are welcome. I drove him to school, he was only 30 minutes late but had a good day. Sidekick stopped by for a coffee. We talked shop, talked about building permits, and filled in some paperwork... Looks like I'm going to get my PAL... Hunting with the boomerang was starting to prove more difficult than I had originally thought it would be. We ate cheesecake and pie, extra whipped cream... Once again horrible diet food. He eventually got called away to do more work. Shortly after he left I got a message about going to town today or at 6am tomorrow... Which means leaving the house at 5am to get everything ready to go... I opted for now. Picked up some stuff for Joan, then got sidekick in the car... Off to Timmins. 1st stop the airport... Must have been a noob at the place, she didn't know who Joan was or where she lived. We harvested signatures for the government from Mel to fill in the rest of the forms... I Keep falling to sleep, I'll finish this tomorrow.

Gas, a coffee, then we head back for Matheson. Almost made it home before Heather called wondering what I was doing. Really she only needs to check her phone... All the messages I get and send are there for her to read, we use the same account on both phones for communicating with... So to all the guys out there sending my wife dick pics... ROTFLMAO, go find one of those ads on the web selling male enhancement pills... You aren't even in the ball park yet. Dropped off sidekick and went home for dinner. Would you believe Turkey Samiches? Yup. Afterwards we tried to hunt down the paperwork proving Heather took her courses to get her PAL... They weren't on file with the government.  No dice, or papers for that matter. Going to have to try again later. The boy and I headed off to Iroquois Falls for hockey practice. We have 50:50 tickets for sale now if you want them $10 each, just message me. All was good except for some kid directing a Slapshot at his back while he was still clearing the last shot from the crease... They had gotten to the point the coach was making sure they were not stacking the short up to close to each other to give Lawson time to work on positioning and tracking the puck But the coach that was working on that wasn't there tonight... Long story short he was told to track and clear the pucks today by me before he went on the ice... As he was clearing a puck buried deep under him, facing the back wall, one of the players thought it would be a good idea to fire a slap shot at him from the hash marks and nailed him in the back where there is almost no padding. I'm not impressed. The boy limped around for a bit, not really saving shots anymore as much as he was just standing in net stopping only the shots that hit him... They need to learn, if kids are scoring on him, there is something wrong, send him for a skate or to the bench for a breather, he's not going to want to go but standing in net and not reacting to shots is only asking for more trouble. We hit Timmies on the way home and packed in the day when we got to there.
