Our tickets are booked!

We booked our tickets to the Madonna concert in L.A. a few days ago. The concert is on November 6th at Dodgers Stadium. There are six of us going and it should be a great time. We probably won't be close enough to see her but I'm sure there will be big screens all around.

This is yet another lousy weekend, weather wise. Since yesterday we have had rain, fog, cold temperatures and some wind. It is supposed to stay like this for the next 4 -5 days so I'll be waiting another while to paint the patio. I bought a new wicker patio set today with a loveseat, two chairs, two ottomans, and a coffee table. I just love it and the best part is that it was on sale! When the clerk checked us out, it ended up being even cheaper than I had originally thought. I love nothing more than a good deal. Of course we won't be using the set anytime soon because of the weather so for now it is in our basement.

We leave on Tuesday to go visit my cousin for a few days. Then we go to the cabin with mom and Dad until next Sunday. We'll go fishing, for walks, on ATV's and play some cards. It should be a nice relaxing vacation. This is our only time off over the summer until we go to L.A. in November. The only day I work next week is Monday and that's the day that the Stanley Cup visits the Janeway Hospital (where I work). One of the players on the Detroit Redwings, Danny Cleary, is from Newfoundland so he is bringing the cup into the hospital on Monday afternoon for all the kids to see. That should be fun. All of my patients have already asked to come in on Monday afternoon so they can be there the same time as the Cup. I think that it is going to be one crazy afternoon but the kids will just love it.

I also included a picture of Sid taken last Sunday while we were out in the garden. Doesn't he look adorable!

Have fun on your vaca!! We have Friday off for a holiday here, and I am so looking forward to a long weekend! I'm doing a 5k walk/run, and the running training hasn't been going so well with class/homework! Hopefully it still goes well :)

I can't wait to hear about your trip to Cali in November!
