Love days like these

Played DDO and Eve in the morning, did a little shopping in the afternoon (comic book store and grocery stores), watched some tv with Popeye's for dinner, then played LOTRO before bed.  Just a quiet day.

Of course it helped that the wife had to work, so I had most of the day to myself, but that's nitpicking :)

Brr it's cold

I think it got up to the mid-20's today, but the wind was blowing pretty well, making it feel like it was in the single digits.  That's cold, even without the snow!

Tomorrow we head up north to the casino - free night, so all we have to pay for is the buffet on T-day, and whatever money we want to gamble with.  I'll be taking a book :)

Winter is here

well, Winter weather is here anyway.  Cold, windy, some snow, a little ice.  Guess the relatively nice weather couldn't last forever.

Hope to visit a movie this weekend, but otherwise, we're going to hibernate :)

Time is like a rubber band

Time went so slow this morning.  It wasn't even 10, and it felt like 2.  Then the afternoon flew by.  What a weird day.

Quiet Weekend

Here, anyway.  No tornadoes, no hail, little rain.  We went to the movies yesterday, did some grocery shopping, and I played on the computer most of the day.

Just another 'downtime' weekend.  Next weekend should be too :)

Sick Day

well, not a whole day, but I did have to leave early because my stomach was just not behaving.  I laid on the couch and watched a bunch of 'cutthroat kitchen' episodes.  I had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for dinner. Firgured that was a fairly safe dinner.  We watched CSI after dinner - that was a weird episode (the one with the opposite of claustrophobia).

Afterwards, I played LOTRO and went ahead and ordered the expansion that comes out next week.  It includes Helm's Deep - that should be interesting to see how they represent the battles there!

Warmer today

More like fall,  Work went relatively quick today (of course it helped that half the day was in meetings).  Hopefully tomorrow will go just as fast.  It also helps that this was a short week.

Next week is a full week, then we have a really short week.  Now that that pressure is off from the UK project, I can start to feel a little less overloaded.

At least till the next big project comes along.

Well, Fudge...

The project for the UK had its plug pulled today.  So, all that work was pretty much for nothing (other than showing that I can do a good job under pressure).

What a waste of energy.  Really kind of depressing.

Coldest Day of the Season far.  I spent the whole day inside, except for a quick trip to the store to get some groceries before dinner.  I get to go back to work tomorrow after a 4 day weekend.  Hopefully it was enough of a break to reduce my stress level a little bit.

We'll see.  Next long weekend is Thanksgiving, when we're going to the casino and the buffet again.  So much easier than cooking!  I'm really going to try and keep my stress level down between now and then.

Day off

Took the day off so I could have a 4 day weekend.  didn't do as much as I thought I would, but that's ok - that's what days off are for!

I did make a trip to the comic book store and pick up some new comics.  Other than that, I played on the computer, dozed, did a few dishes.  Tomorrow we have a lot of running around to do, and if we're up for it, we'll go see Thor.

Well, that pretty much makes it official - fall is over.  Not going to get much, and it's going to melt away shortly, but it's enough to make the ground white and remind us that more is on the way.

Where does the time go?

Monday, November 4, 2013


It rained today...which means snow can't be far behind.  I remember when we moved out here.  It was November, and it was 50 below.  At least we don't have that right now, but winter will be here soon.

I got my cavity filled, but I'm still dealing with the reaction to the anesthetic. So I won't be getting my wisdom tooth pulled for a bit.

Besides, T has to have some work done, too.  November seems to be the month of the dentist.

Hate it when I get hungry late at night.  I know I can't eat before going to bed or I won't sleep.  Plus we don't have any munchy-type food anyway.

Grr. can't win for losing!
