Quality Family Time

A Family Holding Hans on the BeachI must admit that I’m rather enjoying playing caregiver to Nathalie so far. We just got her home from getting her wisdom teeth out and she is resting comfortably. I thoroughly enjoyed collecting supplies, getting her antibiotic and pain prescriptions and renting a couple of mindless movies; partly, I guess because I was allowed to pick up a copy of Mass Effect 2 while I was out.

It’s not very often that we buy games for “ourselves” any more since we spend so much on software to review for the site. Nat took a week off and I am too. It’ll not only give me a chance to dive into a game I’ve been seething for, but also to catch up on some backlogged games like Demon’s Souls, Darksiders and after reading a buddy’s blog post earlier, I’m finally going to try and polish off Persona 4.

I’m also going to use the opportunity to rest up myself.  I found myself with a bit of chest congestion last week that was undoubtedly exacerrbated by playing poker with a room full of smokers on Saturday afternoon.  I haven’t felt sick like this since I used to smoke myself and I quit about 6 years ago.

Luckily I can still function and my sprits are pretty high these days thanks to warmer than usual weather. It’s a nice break for my spasms and Arthritis pain too, so I’m just a happy camper all around. Well, aside from not being able to cough up the ball of mucous in my throat.

I’m sure I’ll chip away at a few things when I get bored, but I’ll be pretty quiet until next week.
