Finally Friday

Well...been a pretty crappy week over's a quick run down...

- My brother-in-law's mom passed away the other day....trip to Toledo tomorrow for the funeral
- Washing machine broke down...paid $130 for a replacement pump only to find that the original pump was fine and that the machine was clogged with sediment and such...but the unit that is clogged is completly sealed, so there is no way to fix a $1100 washer lasted 4 years and we have a new $800 washer getting delivered today. At least we'll have clean clothes.
- Jen has to work all weekend (Fri/Sat/Sun/Mon), so no grand activities planned for the Villa family this weekend. I'm hoping to take the girls to Magic Mountain this afternoon and let them burn off some energy and let Jen get some rest in a quiet house for a few hours.

Played a bit of poker the other day...was up $80 in one session, then ran card cold in aontehr session and dropped $260, then picked up some cards and made $99, so down $90 for the week. Month of August was good to me though, as I think I ended up about $900 for the month...will have to double check the numbers tonight. Here's hoping that September will be just as kind to me. Will probably play a bit of poker over the weekend as well, with Jen working as much as she is.

One other thing...for anyone that plays poker and is a football fan...Check out and the football picker challenge they are running for a seat in the $10000 2006 WSOP main event. Pick one winner every week during the NFL season and you win the spot....miss your one pick and you're out of the tourney. $10 to enter and they have about 200 people signed up so far, so that's cool....not to mention that it's a great way to get into the WSOP.

Not much else to say....have a great holiday everyone and I'll keep you updated on anything exciting over the weekend.
