So, Happy Ground Hog Day!

Today has been a very nice and enjoyable day. The girls came back from their mother's place and will be staying with us for the next 5 days; we were able to get some pictures hung in the house (Linda is redecorating one of the rooms in the motif of Western; we got to sleep in a little, okay, we were still up a little after 07:00 this morning, but that's still better than 06:30; AND, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow.

Next weekend Jason has a sled hockey tournament and it is actually pretty close, considering the previous one was in Minneapolis... We're all looking forward to the tournament and we've invited a bunch of folks from around here to come and see him play (yeah, I'll do my best to remember to post some pictures). Jason really enjoys the action and I believe the social interactivity he gets into with the other players, both on his team and those of the other teams. Most of the players are there and just want to have fun, some of th…

Jason went to the gym today, and had a good work out. First time for the gym in a few weeks, and most of that was due to holidays and too many other things going on. The girls seem to have latched on to a couple of colds, and are keeping them. We've been giving them medicine that has been recommended by the doctors and pharmacists, yet the colds remain about the same. Of course that really isn't a bad thing, as they still get out and play and are running around the house. Their colds aren't very bad, just the sneezing and runny noses won't go away.

Stacy and I had a major milestone. She has gotten better on her bike, and she and I went on our first "long" bike ride, together. It was just a little over four miles, on a specific bike path, and she did a very good job of not stopping any more than she needed. We came across a few other riders and even a few pathway walkers, and Stacy was able to demonstrate she had the confidence to just keep on riding right pas…

Wow! What a great day to be getting back on to the blog. I did a quick check of the stats and it indicates it has been viewed over 300K times. A bunch of folks out there (all of you) seem to want to keep up-to-date on what is going on with Jason's life. Well, I'll start out with - He's doing great! He has had a few pot holes to maneuver around, and there have been some set backs along the way, but over all it is a positive journey. I'm just glad now, that I am healing from the flu and I can get some more information out to everyone. I actually got sick several days (a couple of weeks?) ago.

Jason is still very engaged with his sled hockey and we're doing what we can to get things going for him, so that he can play just as aggressively as he would like to. Because of his particular injuries he has to wear the wearable prosthetic just about anytime he is up. Yeah, he can get around without it, but only for a short while, and that pretty much only happens at home. Bec…
