8-31-2014 Sunday fun
Becky and I went to cowboy Jacks downtown. To watch the Lynx game. It was pretty
fun. Drinks were only two bucks each. So that made for a fun Sunday funday. I have
always liked being down town. Just brings out a different type of crowd.
8-30-2014 Down town
I met up with Shawna and Tracy at Barrio. Mario came out too. It was alot of fun. We
went to Glueks and Gordon and Nina met us there. It was a spendy night. I think I
blew 100 bucks tonight. Ouch.
8-29-2014 JL Beers
I met up with Becca and Amy for burgers at JL beers. Seems to be Beccas favorite
place. I then went out to Tiki hut in Roseville and Hoggsbreath. It was a long night of
drinking. But I took it fairly easy. I was pretty safe.
My gout has been really out of control lately. I had to skip kickball today. I know they
are taking blood samples to see if my uric acid levels are high. But its been worse and
I wanted to take it easy tonight. But I couldn't help but make it to the after events
of dodgeball. So I made my way to Pats tap. I had a good time. I was feeling pretty
good. But I am on vacation for now.
So I went to the Dr today. Blood pressure was high naturally. 164.106. Which means I
have to go back on the pills right away. So I havn't been to the Dr in over 2 and a half
years. Things havn't been good for awhile and I know it. Time to get back on the right
path. I don't think I would have lived long if I kept up with what I was doing.

Che nominated me. So I was doing the ice bucket challenge at their house. Which

into work with all the state fair stuff.
With my knee in pretty good pain. I decided to not do any sports today. I went to the
Doghouse. i got some crap from the bartenders. Its like they knew we all went
somewhere else for awhile. Makes sense.

the new team. They were pretty bad. I don't know what the score was but I think we
beat them by 20 points.

would test it out. It was a good time. There was a bad team and a very good team. I
had a good time. I miss the old bar nights.

everyone and catch up. I got asked to play. I played in jeans. But it doesn't slow me
We stopped at Hinkley for the breakfast buffet. It is worth the money there for it.

camp site. Which was nice. I went to volleyball tonight and I was pretty tired.

with Che to get crab legs at the casino. We went back to the bar and watching the pre
season vikings football game. Everyone went to bed early tonight. So I just hung out
and try to make lasagna on the fire. Turned out good surprisingly.
We met up at the corner stone bar in Wyoming, MN. I got the prime rib for $11 and it
was huge. We made our way to the camp site. a little different this time. But it was by
the river. So far a good night.

then my sets were off and all over the place. Once I get the balance right. I will be a
It was a very bizarre day in the office. With Jeff gone. Everyone just kinda going
through th emotions. It was tough to focus today. For everyone actually. He has only
been my boss for a little over a year. But its a sad thing.

earlier. But they were too much for us. They adjusted and we didn't
