Happy Birthday, Michael!

6 May

Yes, Michael is 28 today.  I can hardly believe it!  First of all, 28 suddenly seems SO much closer to 30 than 27 was.  Second, it sort of just sank in today that we’ve been together for 8 years, which means he was only 20 when we started dating.  Or maybe it just sank in that he was 20 when we started dating, so that means we’ve been together for 8 years.  Either way – wow!

Valerie wants us to go to Hay Lake for a barbecue picnic, and since it’s gorgeous out (again! we’re so hard up!) it seems like the perfect idea.  So just a quick message today before I go prepare the steaks and potatoes to take with us.

I have a ton of work to catch up on this week; I haven’t been doing it and I haven’t been blogging because I’ve been at the jail . . . guarding.  Court is being held today at the community hall.  On Wednesday, a guy who had been remanded to the jail in Yellowknife was flown into Fort Liard so that he could attend court.  So a guard was required 24 hours a day every day that he was in the jail here.  And I guarded for 8 hours of each of those days. 

It seems like there’s a theme of eights here.  Which is good, since 8 is considered by the Chinese to be a lucky number.  It must be my lucky day!
