I realize a lot of my posts are complaints, anxieties, etc. However, this post is nothing but good.
Friday I ran Project Hidden for finnegwyn
. Things went very well and the group is about to the point where they can start new adventures. I enjoyed making the world and even as we speak the world is currently changing. The end result of the world has been established since the beginning, but these last three campaigns have been set in the "breaking" of the world. I had fun Friday night and I am hoping to keep this going as closely as weekly as I can.
Saturday was overwhelmingly cool. It started a little off in the morning. We got up and ran over to what we thought was the Farmer's Market. We get there and discovered that we had the wrong day. Sunday is evidently Farmer's Market day. Oh well we returned home and had some lunch. To be honest I don't specifically remember what we did for the couple hours after that, except that it was mostly hanging out on the couch.
Early evening was the cool part. Me and the wife climbed in bed and played around for hours. Talking, laughing, having sex and eventually just laying there. I can give up everything else in this world, as long as I get to keep imake1tgirl
. We then got up, headed to Bridges in Snohomish (a giant pet store, much better then the box stores). The wife picked out a goldfish and we added it to the tank. We then crawled in bed and roleplayed one of her solo characters a lot more.
By late evening I started making a carrot cake for my little brother's 29th birthday. Ok, that sounds weird that my little brother (9 years younger) is now 29 years old. We roleplayed some more while it baked. Finally I pulled it out of the oven. It looked good, golden brown and the toothpick came back clean. Unfortunately an hour later when it was done cooling we noted that both parts of the cake were not cooked all the way. We threw it away and I prepared to make a second cake when the voice of reason from my wife came to me. imake1tgirl
looked at me and asked if we could just buy a cake and not make more. After some thought thats what we did. We picked up my brother a small carrot cake and a small white cake with white frosting. We came home and crashed.
Sunday started off great. I woke up cold. Now, don't get me wrong I don't like being cold, but after 102 degrees last week it was wonderful. I got up, watched some random action movie on Netflix Online, ate some Chex and got ready for heading out. The wife got up and we drove up to Bellingham. This time however we avoided the freeway, instead we took purely back roads. We went up US 9, crossed over through Mt. Vernon and then went up Chuckanut Drive. It as a wonderful stress free drive. True it took a good bit longer, but it was worth it.
We got up there, picked up the pics from my nephew Wyatt's birthday at Walgreen and went to my parents. There it was my parents, the wife and I, my sister Jackie and her special guy Justin, my brother Derek (birthday boy), his baby's momma Monica (I wish they would just get married) and my nephew Wyatt and niece Kristen.
We all had cake, hung out and chatted. I do miss doing this with my family more often and I really enjoyed it.We eventually wrapped it up and decided we should head back. Unfortunately it wasn't until Mt Vernon that I even thought I should have called my friends up there (sorry about that). I drove us back down Chuckanut into Mt. Vernon. There we had lunch at El Cazador. On our way out, I got the wife to agree to drive.
drove us back the back way. She seemed to enjoy it and its nice to have her drive. She thinks she is a horrible driver due to some accidents and smart ass comments I gave her in the past ( I am bad). However, she is a good driver and I was happy to be with her.
We got home, hung out while I played some AA3, she chatted with some of the Dying Light players and things look good. We now have settled into our bedroom and will probably go to bed soon.
It was an awesome weekend!!!!
