Weekends

I have been amused at how much less traffic there is on the forums on the weekends. I am curious what y'all have planned for this weekend? 

I have had an extremely stressful week combined with sickness. Today I am supposed to be helping at a large social event. Tomorrow morning I preach. I am really hoping to do some playing on Sunday afternoon. It will probably be a solo game or two. We will see. But, I feel like I need to unwind somehow.

I hope you feel better and everything went well! 

This weekend was a busy one I did a bunch of yard work on Saturday and also took the kids to a reading of The Polar Express, read in an old train car that they decked out in Christmas decor. On Saturday I also played a bunch of games with my four-year-old while my wife and three-year-old took a nap. We played Zoo Ball; Crokinle; and Roll for Your Life, Candyman! Later that night my wife and I watched The Force Awakens as lead-up to EPIX.

Sunday was church in the morning. And, my wife works with the children at church, and since the year is ending, there was a little gathering for the older kids who are transferring from the kids program to the youth program in the coming year. She had made a bunch of food for it, so we stayed late for that meeting and helped serve and clean up. Then we visited some families from church who had kids having birthdays this week. It was a busy Sunday, but full of good stuff so that makes it not feel so busy :) 

Later last night we opened some presents with the in-laws, since we are leaving tomorrow for Canada and won't be back until after Christmas. Then my wife and I played Patchwork, in which we both won a game.

And that's what I had planned for last weekend!

I do feel much much better. I did have to wake up early yesterday to finish studying for a sermon so I napped rather than playing games yesterday afternoon. 

Also, most of the major stressors from last week are taken care of.

Glad you're feeling better. It always helps when the stressors are done away with :) That'll be Friday/Monday for me, but at least the end is in sight!

Sorry you’ve been sick and busy. I always get to this time of year and want to wind down but it never  works out that way. But taking time for yourself is important. We’re pretty busy trying to get ready for our trip over Christmas. I’ve wanted to play a game too but it looks like we’ll have one evening open before we leave.

It happens. 

Where are you going? Is it somewhere you can take games? 

JamesReid860 Supporter43 days ago | 1 point[-]

Yes it is! I’m slowly reach my family new games so I’ll bring a bunch down that they’ll play and maybe a few that will stretch them just for fun :)

Good luck! It can be a tough sell sometimes.

Thanks! This side of the family will play more. Firefly and Clank! Are favorites of theirs

Thanks! Its always a tough decision picking the new ones that they'd like to play.

We’ve got a jam packed weekend. One daughter has dance. All have Christmas program practice. Two older girls are going to the Nutcracker ballet. And that’s just today!

Tomorrow we have church, then Christmas program. Hopefully I’ll have time this afternoon or tomorrow afternoon to get a solo play of something.

That does sound busy. Any idea what you want to play? 

Skurvy5 Supporter43 days ago | 1 point[-]

I’m going to get out base scythe and learn the automa.

In preparation for Fenris? Have fun.

I managed to play an entire game! I won 69 to 55. Not a very good round for either of us.

How for you find the AI? 

Marshwiggle92 Supporter43 days ago | 1 point[-]

Of course, I know that you opened the box and, there it was.... 

What I mean is how did you find out to play with? 

JamesReid860 Supporter43 days ago | 1 point[-]

I feel like I have an even harder time making time for solo game later than group games 

Marshwiggle92 Supporter43 days ago | 1 point[-]

Really? That is interesting. I'm in the opposite situation generally speaking.

JamesReid860 Supporter43 days ago | 1 point[-]

Too many other things to do. We’re also working to be able to adopt so that takes time as well. 

Skurvy5 Supporter43 days ago | 1 point[-]

Wow! That’s a huge step and a ton of work. My sister in law and her husband tried for years but it never worked out for them. Hoping you have better results!

JamesReid860 Supporter42 days ago | 1 point[-]

I'm praying so too! 

Marshwiggle92 Supporter43 days ago | 1 point[-]

Hey, I am proud of you. I would like to adopt internationally sometime.

JamesReid860 Supporter42 days ago | 1 point[-]

Appreciate it.  We're adopting just nationally. Still, there's so much time and $$ required. 

Marshwiggle92 Supporter42 days ago | 1 point[-]

Yes there is.  Praying it goes well.

Thank you!
