My first hockey entry

hockeyThe Tri-City Americans of the Western Hockey League are having Breast Cancer Awareness Night tonight when they play Everett. As part of the deal, the ice will be pink, as will the players’ skate laces and stick tape. (Other teams have done this type of thing in the past, including wearing pink jerseys.)

God I love hockey.

Our Winter Hawks, who have slipped to 4th place (out of five), play last-place Spokane tonight, and will try to break a six game losing streak.

Good news…

The water damage is covered by our insurance. The adjuster just left.

Bad news: the plumbing work is not covered. And we have a $500 deductible.

Next step is getting a contractor out here to start digging and figure out how far they have to go. We’ve been hoping for a new shower, so this could be our chance. Ah, the joys of owning a 100 year old house (that a previous owner/do-it-yourselfer remodled).
