Sunday Ramblings

Hello Everyone,
Another week has come and gone andI'm still in Nunavut in the middle of winter. This week I found out I'll apparently be doing a couple of reliefs in a couple of stores as well as attending the best practice school in Rossville Manitoba. This means that somewhere around May I'll be leaving the family here and travelling a bit. Each relief is 1 month and Rossville is 3 weeks, so apparently I won't be around much this summer. The other good news? I got this week is that I'm going to be in charge of the H & R Block services in our store for the next month and a half. Yeah, I just love taxes... Ok I'm not convincing myself, is anyone buying this?
Did you know you can get a hangover without drinking? I get one every couple of weeks when I fail to drink enough liquid before going to bed. I think its due to the low humidity here, It causes you to dehydrate very quickly during the night then you wake up and Hello, you have a hangover. The only good thing about alcohol free hangovers is they tend to go away faster.
We had another blizzard over the last couple of days but it was a pretty uneventful one, nothing new to report, other than -53 is still very cold. I did finally wear my goggles yesterday, It was taking about 2 minutes till you started to feel your face going numb, and eyes freezing is a very uncomfortable feeling.
Christopher and Melissa are doing well. Just before the storm hit the temp got upto -11 and they went out to enjoy the fine weather. Sledding and snowballs were the task of the day.
Oh yeah, One great thing about this storm, my father sent us a security bar that goes frm the floor to the door handle and last night the door remained closd all night. Thanks Dad.
Take Care,
CG

That bar seems like a real good idea! I never thought about using such a thing. Bit by bit it comes together,eh.
Take care, weather report says another storm is coming, or there already.
