The Countdown Begins


Cake We Saw in Bakery at Lancaster

Things have been busy lately! The hockey regular season has ended and the playoffs have begun for the AHL & ECHL with the NHL starting next week. Both the Reading Royals and the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins are in the playoffs. The Royals won the first series to make it to the semifinals. They lead this series 3-2 with the next game being Tuesday, April 30th. I'm hoping to make it to that game. The WBS Pens are ahead 2-0 in their first series.

Baseball season has started including the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs and I have been to several chilly games. The Pigs have had a mixed start so far much like the Phillies but I'm excited for the season to start much like I am excited for warmer weather to start. It was in the lower 70's today but we are supposed to get cooler weather again which I'm not excited about.

I was lucky in that I've had some days off lately. I was off last Monday, this past Friday, and I will be off again this coming Friday. Last Monday was an Iron Pigs game while this Friday was just a day because I had a day I had to use by May 7th or I lost it. This coming Friday is the beginning of New Jersey Supernatural convention.

One of the reasons I chose this past Friday as a day to take off was I had a busy weekend this past weekend. Friday night I saw Joan Rivers in Reading, PA where she gave a "lecture" which was full of her hilarious comedy. Saturday was a bus trip to Lancaster, PA. The trip began with some shopping at one of the Farmer's markets in Bird in Hand, PA followed by the musical, "Noah" at Sight and Sound Theatres. The day ended with a meal at the Shady Maple Shmorgasborg with some shopping at their gift shop and farmer's market. It was a great trip and the weather was amazing!

With regard to my weight loss journey, I hit a mile-stone in that I have now lost 50 pounds. I'm so happy--I look and feel quite different. Originally I said I was going to take some new pictures but with Disney around the corner (we leave May 11th for a week in the sun) I've decided to get some great pictures with characters. I will post those pictures and update my profile pictures with some character pictures.

That is all for now. To say I'm counting down to Disney is an understatement!

Have a great week!
