I haven’t had very many (read: any) blog updates lately. I am terribly sorry for that.
The reason for this is that, quite frankly there hasn’t been all thatmuch going on with me lately.
Our family has kinda settled into a rhythm right now that I don’t believe that we want to upset for the time being. So all our lives have been pretty routine lately.
Valerie and her team are working very hard to make it back to the NCAA Championships this year, so that has taken over her focus, while I’ve got some personal goals that I’m working towards and have not thought about much else beyond that.
Of course with the running, it’s going alright. I’m still a little bit ahead of schedule right now for getting ready for my half. But circumstances of Valerie’s situation are hurdles for my own motivation sometimes.
Since the second half of Valerie’s season has started back up. Her 6 am workouts force my workouts to be moved to about 5 am for the time being, and to even earlier than that as my weekday runs get longer. In order to achieve this, I’ve needed to get to bed at decent times of course. So far it has managed to be alright, I only hope that I can continue to persevere.
Gaming is currently the part of my life that has suffered the most at this time. I try to make certain times for it. But when I must ensure that I go to bed at certain times on certain days, it becomes harder to squeeze in a 4 hour session even once every two weeks if things don’t work out exactly right.
I did finally get confirmation of a shipment on an order I placed in November. I am pleased that I will soon be adding 7 Wonders, Survive: Escape from Atlantis, and The Resistance to my collection. I just am not sure when I’ll get to play any of them. Nevertheless, I’m sure that will be remedied soon enough.
Of course, there are a few upcoming events I might try to make. Of course, Midsouthcon is a given, as I’m working for some of it, but others hopefully will come into the fold as well. I don’t know which ones and when just yet, but as other events unfold that will soon become more clear.
Because I’ve had to do more things at different times, I am pleased with a few developments. I am reading a ton more these days. Which I am pleased with. I finally read a couple of Neal Stephenson books that I’ve been wanting to read forever. With my new found hobby, I’ve been more interested in running books. I read ‘Born to Run’ which was interesting, if a little crazy. Oh and I just started a promising book called ‘Moneyball’ which has been pretty interesting so far.
I’ll have more upcoming in the next month or so, an update on my training for anyone that cares, possibly my con plans for the upcoming year.
