I heard it straight from the horse's mouth

"Every day is like opposite day to me." - Damon Fair

This was his response when Patrick teased him. He asked Patrick to watch his food and Patrick told Puck to eat up and said, "oh didn't you know it's opposite day today?"

Logically reverse psychology should work on him. "Damon don't clean up your dirty clothes." The problem is that this guy is always one step ahead of me and will do a double reverse on me. *sigh*

A word of thanks

I wanted to say 'thank you' for the wonderful fudge! It disappeared rapidly. It tasted so good that the kids couldn't believe that "somebody actually made it." (I think they thought it was sent from the heavens.) Matt was away for work, so the kids and I decided that meant more fudge for us.

We are home from an exciting weekend away. Patrick's hockey team played in an international (ooooohhh aaaahhhh) tournament this past weekend. They didn't win any games, but Patrick looked great! And then after today's game he was awarded a special puck as the MVP! We are all so proud of him.

We all had a lot of fun hanging out with the players and their families at the rink and hotel (with a pool) this weekend and came home tired out. We aren't really looking forward to going back to work and school.
