Going... Going... Zzzzz!

I'm half baked right now...
No, not from partying or anything like that. I had to work on what were supposed to be days off but because of all the vacation time I used going to St. Louis and Philadelphia, I had to make some of it up here this week. Last night, the players and staff got together one last time before everyone parted for the spring/summer. It was great because I got to hear some great news about where some of the guys are going to play hockey next year. Even Toby. Yes, that's right... Toby was scouted by a Division III school in New England who want him to come play next fall. I was so incredibly happy for him. He'll be going to school and those broke down knees will get to play more hockey! Big Andy was so happy because he got a scholarship to go play Division III out near Fargo, North Dakota at Concordia College. Dan got a ride to play hockey at S.U.N.Y.- Morrisville, NY. I was so proud of them. Of course the really hard part is that they will be leaving Toledo and I'll most likely never see them again. That's the hard part of it. You make the most wonderful of friendships with these guys but your goal is to move them up and on... Swede isn't sure if he's going to go to school back home in Sweden, or come back in the fall and go to school here. It's going to depend on how things work out with his girlfriend who lives in Jackson, Michigan. I've met her. She's worth leaving home for...LOL. There are probably going to be around 8-10 guys who may come back to us next September. But that is yet to be seen. I'm already missing these clowns. God Bless each and every one of them.
Well, back to work... We're changing computer systems at work and that is a complete pain in the ya-ya's. I stayed after my shift at work to teach some of this crap to others... and I'm not a computer geek! You know it was bad when the I-T person who was there to help implement everything had a problem with the program and I had to show him how to add a couple of things... and it's HIS program... It was a real stressful day to say the least. I left work and came home and decided that my Saturday night would be spent in front of the TV watching a hockey game and falling asleep. I haven't been to Church in the last two weeks in person and am really looking forward to it tomorrow morning. I've been lazy in getting around to other blogs/journals but all of you please know that I'm thinking about you all... I hope you're all doing good and are healthy and happy. I was supposed to go on a date, but instead, I'm going to go spend quality time with my pillow and fall asleep. I normally don't sleep alot, but these days, I am enjoying slumberland... big time! Zzzzzzzzzzz....

Our age range for our kids is 16-20... they play at the 'junior' level. It's too advanced for high school from a skill standpoint and they are looking to be noticed by scouts and offered a chance to play hockey in college. Most of our kids are 18-19 years old.
