Tonight starts the beginning of the 2006 CFL season! Right now we’re in the first quarter and the Bombers are up 7-0. Yea! I wore my Bomber jersey and hat to work today to get the action going.
We had pizza today at work which was nice! One of the guys at work is allergic to cheese and actually gets his pizza with NO cheese! I think that’s awesome. I hate cheese, but always get it on my pizza because I like the extra grease that the cheese brings. I tried one of the slices without cheese and it wasn’t bad. I think I’ll continue to order cheese on my pizza and just pick it off.
Today I got the greatest surprise!!
Jillian emailed me today – out of the blue, I haven’t chatted with the girl since before Christmas – turns out she and Peter are arriving in St. Catharines ONE DAY before Dave and I!! How awesome is that! So not only do I get to spend time with her and Peter, they get to meet Dave too! I am so excited. I called her when I got home from work since I can call overseas for free now. It was so so nice to chat with her. Silly Peter, he answered the phone with a VERY impressive Canadian accent. It took me a few seconds to realize it was him! Oh I am just so happy right now. This is going to be a great trip.
Oh I’m so happy, Dave and I both got approved for time off to come to Ontario in July. Since we’re both at new jobs, the best we could do is two days off, and we have to make up the time… so a few weeks of loooong days. That’s okay though.
Unfortunatley, because we’re only coming for a short period of time, there are a lot of people we’re not going to be able to see. We’re not even going to be able to see all of our family. This is the problem with BOTH of us having family in the Toronto/Niagara area.
But number one priority is for Dave to meet my parents! We’ve been dating over a year now, and I’m anxious for them to meet. I know that we’re a ways off from any engagement or anything, but it’s still important to me.
There are two other must-do’s for the weekend – the first being going to the Bombers @ Argos game. That was part of the reason we picked this weekend, we wanted to go to a Winnipeg away game. The other thing is going to Wonderland on the Monday. My sister and her boyfriend invited us. I’m stoked cuz I missed going last year and I can’t wait!
And then… of course… Gino’s pizza. Oh, Gino’s pizza, how I have forsaken you by moving away. I miss you so much. I’ll be there soon.
