Some positive news is that my knee is feeling better today. Not 100% but over the last 24 hours certain movements have provided some slight "adjusting" of my knee which appears to be helping. Woo hoo. I am not out of the clear yet, but at least it is better than yesterday thus far (knocking on wood). I still am confused as to what happened, but provided I get better, I don't really care anymore.

I wish I had brought my camera along today. The high school track season has started again, so today (being my day off of work) gave me the opportunity to attend practice. I swear it started to pour just before I got to the track and the entire time during their practice. We only had 4 distance guys out today (maybe the rest were scared off by the freezing rain) and I am proud of them for sticking it out.

Quinlyn states that he won the wet t-shirt contest as he had white on. Rebecca, Miryam and Hannah (all sisters) worked their butts off even with numb legs from the cold rain. I wish I had my camera to capture it all. Funny thing is, as I drove home I drove through pouring rain near the track and then 10 min down the road towards my house, I met fluffy white clouds and dry roads. I guess the downpour missed Cedar!

During the Olympics, I received an e-mail from the Canuck Fan Club (yes I am totally a member) stating that I had won a prize. Every so often they send e-mails around advising members of contests taking place. I generally always enter, never really expecting to win, but secretly hoping to. I filled out the forms, scanned them and sent them back. A couple of weeks ago I received my prize, which was shoved into my tiny little mail box and I actually had trouble getting it out, not to mention the envelope wasn't even fully closed anymore. Hopefully no one took my actual prize and swapped it. If they did, I will never know!

So if you are wondering, that is Henrik Sedin's autograph. Or is supposed to be from what I was told. The contest was an Olympic Prize Pack, which meant there were various autographed prizes (mostly photos, with 1 hat I think) from Henrik, Daniel, Christian Ehrhoff, Sami Salo, Pavel Demitra and Roberto Luongo. I think there was 1 prize per player. Anyways, I was surprised I won and will add this to my auto collection, considering I have yet to get Henrik's autograph in person!

Before I go, I figured it's been awhile since I have posted some updated photos of my kitties. If you don't like cats, too bad :P

Great way to keep the kitties amused (ice in a bowl)

Steve likes to talk and does this often
