It’s been a good news, meh news kind of day. Which is in keeping with how it is all going these days. I have a 3 day weekend to look forward to, which is always nice. And I get to start it with an evening without kids thanks to Grandma & Grandpa (and Aunt & Uncle.) And now I get news that I will be able to get in a game of D&D before everyone scatters for vacations/camps etc. But the best news is that Kim will get to join us on our vacation in a week.
It’s going to a different kind of 3 day weekend. With the bigger gatherings at the beginning rather than the end, so I will get a day to recover, which I always like. Of course I will still have to get up early on Sunday to take Jimmy to meet his ride for his summer wrestling camp. But I can then come back home and nap if I want.
It was touch and go on getting in a game with the boys before we all left. But one of their vacations got postponed for a week or so. Which means I will be able to play Friday afternoon. I am pretty amped for this session, because I have been working on it for a while, I expect it to be a real challenge for them. I have a plan to make it interesting as well, try to break away from the almost video game like challenge of the past couple of sessions.
Kim’s store has been working through a massive remodel for a number of months. And it is almost done (thankfully.) But there were rumors that since the Grand opening was coming up that all vacations would get cancelled. Which would mean that Kim would not be able to join us for most of our vacation in a week. But she was told today that she will get that week off! Which is great news because there were a number of logistical issues that were wearing me out. Not to mention I would hate for her to have to miss the vacation.
Like I said, no bad news. Some meh news (sorry one family friends trip got postponed, and things will be a little tricky to start our vacation.) And some good news, getting to play D&D and Kim gets to join us for our trip after all.
But the best thing of all is I get to spend an evening with just Kim tonight to start my 3 day weekend! And, unlike our Anniversary, there is very little chance that we will get a call to come get a child to bring home. It is definitely rare that we get entire nights to ourselves (sadly Kim does have to work in the morning so it cannot be a late night.) But we will make the most of what we get.
And with that, I am off line for a few days, have a good holiday folks, USA! USA!
