It's only 16 days til I leave for South Africa! I've got a lot of stuff at home and work that I have to get done before I leave, so it's a bit of a mad scramble. We're trying to get our balcony set up, we want to get a latice, flower pots, and a patio set. We got a BBQ on Monday, and man was it good to eat flame grilled meat and veggies again.
Last Saturday Dayna's parents gave us tickets to the Canucks vs Oilers game. It was really fun, typically Dayna's not too into the game, but because it was such an important game and we were so close she was chanting and the works.. The Canucks lost, but I caught the envelope dropped by the flying Orca, so it wasn't a total loss. Sunday night we went to her parents place for a feast. They spoiled us with prawns, roast beef and wine. It was nice to see them again, it had been quite a while since the last time we were out there.
The day after I leave the Canucks play their last game of the season. I'll be on a plane for 30 hours (I leave at 4pm on Friday and arrive at 8am on Sunday) so I won't hear much until well after the game is over. Hopefully they have clinched a playoff spot well before then so I'm not missing the most important game of the year, it's bad enough that I'll have to miss some or all of the playoffs (if they make it).
