More Than a Little Bummed

Yesterday was a delightful day.

John and I got up early enough to go have breakfast at one of our local hangouts. I always enjoy eating out, but I particularly enjoy breakfast out. It feels like such a luxury. When I was a child growing up, we occasionally went out to dinner, but the only time we ate breakfast out was when we were on vacation — and those didn’t happen all that often!

Later in the day, friends came over for gaming. When Alison and her husband got here, we played Descent (my favorite board game) for a few hours. We were already winning when Hal got to the house later and joined the game. A few rounds into the last dungeon, Alison welded the final blow against the dragon and WE WON! In all the scenarios we’ve played, we’ve only lost twice — and once was the last time we played. Luckily, we made better choices (and better dice rolls) this time, so we stand victorious!

I always play the same character  — the Runewitch Astarra — when we play Descent even though there are several to choose from. She’s a mighty character. At one point toward the end of the game, the Evil Overlord threatened that if she died, she was being taking from the game and I couldn’t play her anymore. I got really hung up on that! The Runewitch must not die! I said every time I lost hit points or someone else made a crucial decision.

And, she didn’t! She wasn’t even close to dying when we won.


Once that game was over, we picked up on the last session of an interesting Pathfinder campaign. Well, actually everyone else played, and I watched. The game got very exciting. Hal’s a pretty good GM and the story was intriguing. Even though I thoroughly enjoyed the game, I had no interest in picking up a character. I just don’t enjoy roleplaying.

So, why am I bummed, if I had such a delightful day yesterday?

Because I forgot to blog! By the time everyone went home and we got the kitchen cleaned up, I was ready to unwind and get ready for bed. I didn’t make a conscious decision not to blog; it just didn’t occur to me. Not for a second.

I guess I broke my streak, but I’m going to try to carry on for the rest of the month. I’m not going to let that one skip throw me completely off my game.


I’m pleased to announce that I’ve decided to join with several other Blogtoberfest participants by hosting a giveaway. I’ll be collecting comments and on 31 October, I’ll use an online random number generator to draw a name. The prize will be a package of my handmade Simple Sayings Motivational Cards. Multiple entries are accepted, but only one comment per post will count as an entry.
