## Morning Mastodonians!
Tough morning on the ice. The guy opening the rink was late, which kind of threw off all my normal routines. Yeah, that was why I gave up 10 goals. Most certainly. That's my story and I'm sticking with it. Now I have to bring the car to the shop for new brakes. And whatever else they find on a 11 year old minivan with nearly 150,000 miles on it. Always a scary thought.
We had a short session of D:OS2 on Tuesday, before the very excellent 1 game playoff against the hated Yankees. Nice battle. Then we had an epic evening on Wednesday with Halo 3:ODST. Most of the level was pretty easy but then we had to defend a plaza and it took us many tries to finish it. But I still think the "have to restart the checkpoint if anyone dies" option is brilliant. More games should do that (I'm looking at you, *Borderlands*).
Not much planned for the long weekend. The girls are both coming home and we are planning a big dinner out on Sunday evening with another family. That should be fun. The dumpster was finally taken away yesterday, so I will need to clean the garage. And probably other winterizing projects, like sealing the garage windows and putting away the deck furniture. I live a far too exciting life.
Stay safe. Watch your distance. Wear a mask. Wash your hands. GET VACCINATED!
