August Spending Plan Results

Where did the summer go?? We just finished off ultimate last night and even though we won our first game, we lost our second game to place 6th in Div A which isn’t too bad. Corporate challenge is gearing up the next few weekends, and my company ultimate team is defending champs so lots of […]

July Spending Plan Results

How is it possibly August already??? July was a blur with the Stampede and… work? Ultimate started up again, and although we won our Spring division, we were seeded higher this season and got mercied (when you lose to a team by 8 points) by the 2nd half, which hasn’t happened in a couple of […]

June Spending Plan Results

Silly boy. AND there are some exterior influences that […]

Weekend Links – It’s May Already??

Weekend Links – April 20th Edition

I survived the first week! Albeit, it was a short week, so I spent yesterday at the dentist and doing taxes for the family. Thank goodness for designated days off! Even though I have behind on my writing, I definitely have continued on with my reading, and there have been some interesting stuff this week: […]
