Hockey and a Road Trip

Playing hockey and hitting the road, how can you beat that? N had a game up in Burlington this weekend and afterward we planned to have a little family vacation up in Canada. Hockey the way it was meant to be, in Canada. The plan was to drive up to Burlington the night before and spend the night at a hotel, which would make getting to the early morning game much easier since it’s a 2 hour drive and N doesn’t do well with early morning appointments. We’ll have to work on that one.

I have to confess, I like the idea of having a couple of days off, it’s been a slightly rough holiday with all that’s happening on the economic front, and not to sound like a Scrooge (too late?), but it’s good to have Christmas behind us and to look forward to the rest of our lives.

With that in mind, we are off to the Great White North to enjoy the new year. We’ve never really traveled as a family for the new year, so this should be fun, and it’ll be nice to get some time away from domestic obligations, including hockey, even if you’re never really too far away from hockey, are you? Especially when you travel to where hockey originated, which for the record, is my kind of place.

They are predicting record cold temperatures and icy conditions, so this should be interesting.

Until then, thanks for reading, and thanks to Stephanie for the pic.
