City of Toronto Recreation Beat the Clock

mouseToday is the city of Toronto's recreation and cultural program registration day for Etobicoke and York districts. That means Daddy has to wake up early to battle other mommies and daddies for a valuable spot in desired courses.

James needs swimming lessons and Michelle is dying to take ballet, so at 6:59am I'm locked and loaded and hammering away at the F5 button. There was a time I would do the same thing for concert tix, but now I do it so Michelle can take ballet. Argh.

The first few minutes are always anxious as I hit that "maximum sessions exceeded" message and can't break through, but eventually I score and grab one of the last remaining spots. Success!

Don't cry for me. I'm already dead.

Wife and I did the North York registration this morning. More that 50 minutes on the internet and phone. Finally got through on the phone. Kids are now registered for swimming, dancing and ski/snowboard lessons. This ontop of piano/drums, hockey, lacrose and TaiKwonDo. Never a dull moment being a parent
