#591 – Slow News Day

Standard

Not much happened today. The real highlight of the day was going to the grocery store for the week’s shopping and buying a new laptop for school.

I spent the day hanging out and gaming with our Australian friend who’s in town for a few days. I had my first Vegemite sandwich and my first fairy bread today (both were quite tasty).

Tomorrow we’re planning to go closer to downtown for dinner at one of our favorite restaurants and then maybe head to Zilker Park downtown to see the Trail of Lights. It’s supposed to be rainy tomorrow, so that’s kind of a tentative thing for us at this point. During the day? Probably laundry and a trip up to the new apartment to show off the complex.

Blah

Standard

Today was a repeat of yesterday. Lots of goofing off, not much adulting to be done. These days are going to be few and far between over the next few years because of school, but it’ll be worth it.

My mood has been kinda low today, though. Not down, per se, just a little low. It’s been a hard feeling to shake. I’ve also been tired most of the day as well.

Days like this I really don’t know what to write about. Nothing much happened. I played games on the computer all day, and my wife and I did our radio show in the evening. I feel like I’m somehow shortchanging you, my readers, by not having more to talk about. But I suppose lazy days like today are important from time to time.

And Then There Was Nothing

Standard

Today I did as little as humanly possible. My week has been hectic and stressful (at least relatively speaking) and I felt the need to just take it easy today.

I still paid all the bills, though, so there was a little adulting that happened in a whole lot of goofing off.

I didn’t once look at anything relating to school. After yesterday, I needed the break. I know that when school starts I can’t do this, but I need to try to go into things gradually instead of all at once. I’m glad it looks like I can only do one class this semester. It would be a perfect opportunity to dip my toes in, so to speak, before diving in headfirst.

And in keeping with that whole being a slug theme today, that’s about all that I’m doing to put in this post. More tomorrow.

It’s Been a Saturday

Standard

Today’s going to be a short post, because other than goofing off, there’s not that much to report. Today’s been a day of laziness for me. The only thing I’ve done besides goof off on my computer are my day’s chores and tonight’s show. I have been pretty social today, though, and I’m happy for that. Tomorrow’s another day and it’ll likely be busier than today has been.

 

So Sleepy

Standard

Today was a pretty lazy day. I did a few chores around the house, but largely I took it easy. I was supposed to go see my doctor for a non-urgent issue today after dropping my wife off at work after lunch, but I was falling asleep at stop lights heading back towards our place, so I called and postponed that appointment.

A good portion of my day was spent in Secret World Legends. Recently I had an issue on my main character with progressing on the central story line – I couldn’t get past a locked door and the game managers couldn’t figure out a way to fix the bug. They were able to jump start my character past that point in the story line, but it meant that I’d miss out on all the stuff in the zone beyond the door. I figured it was a small price to pay to be able to play again, and besides, I could always see what I was missing on another character. This morning I did a mission that somehow managed to reset the locked door so I could get through it, and that zone became available to me again, so I spent the day on that character exploring the new areas.

We had friends come over for a visit during the early evening – they were dropping off the Cards Against Humanity Bigger Blacker Box that we lent out on Saturday for the party – and we had a good visit, talking about all sorts of things of common interest. It was good to see them again.

As I type this, I’m beyond exhausted. I’ve been tired all day, and I can’t wait to go to bed. I have an early morning tomorrow, but there will be plenty of opportunity to catch up on sleep once I run my morning errand. Looking forward to that.

Still Saving Spoons

Standard

Today was mostly another take-it-easy kind of day. Tomorrow absolutely won’t be, as we have to pack and make it to the airport, plus I have an appointment a couple hours before we’re due to head out for our trip, so things are going to be crazy. I’m going to be looking forward to getting into Phoenix tomorrow night and collapsing at the hotel room.

So far the only thing on tap that I know about is going to be dinner with the family Wednesday night and the service on Thursday morning. I hope it’s going to be a low-key trip the rest of the way.

I’m still waiting on an issue with one of my characters in Secret World Legends, but I’m spending quite a bit of time on my other two characters. One of them is for all intents and purposes teamed with my wife’s character of the same faction – we have decided to play them together for the duration of the game – and one I’m spending my solo free time on. It’s good to be playing with my wife. We enjoy each other’s company immensely, and we always seem to make a very good team in whatever game we’re playing.

We’ve got a social weekend planned, on top of the trip. There’s a barbecue on Saturday afternoon that we’d like to make an appearance at, and on Sunday afternoon we’re going to a couple of friends’ new-ish place (we haven’t been there yet, so it’s new to us) to visit and help her out with some work stuff. Other than that, I think we’re going to be laying pretty low to conserve what we can for next week.

Marshaling Resources

Standard

You ever have a day that you just want to call it in? Today was that day for me.

The intention was to be somewhat productive today, but as the day progressed, that will got weaker and weaker, and was finally lost altogether amid a flurry of computer games.

Tomorrow there will be shopping and laundry, things that we should have done today, but we chose instead to have a day off to enjoy one another’s company. It’s a small thing, really, but I’ve thoroughly enjoyed teaming with my wife to fight zombies in Maine. We don’t team that often, and I love it when we do, regardless of the game.

I did complete my checklist today – I’m on a two month long streak of full marks currently – so that’s not being forgotten. But our trip on Tuesday is going to be a rough one for both of us, and I believe both of us are marshaling our mental and emotional resources in preparation for what we anticipate during the trip. We’re only out there for two days, essentially. We fly out Tuesday night, late enough to just go to the hotel room and get some sleep and we’re due back at the airport Friday mid-morning, so there’s going to be enough time for packing and breakfast.

Looking forward to having this week behind me.
