It has been a long, stressful day in many ways. But with a good outcome.

Spent part of the morning shopping for supplies and stuff that I need for the trip down to GenCon Indy 2017 and was pretty tired when I got home for lunch. After lunch, I made my final decision as to the car that I wanted, and went over to the Mazda dealership, Dilawri Mazda, and bought my car.

She’s a 2014 Mazda GS, and her colour is Titanium Flash (fancy paint job, that!). 🙂

Since the car won’t be mine until the insurance is set up and new license plates and registration are established, from Mazda it was getting late so time for supper. Headed over to Boston Pizza once more, and ate a lovely meal of a small caesar salad and a Pizza Bella, washed down with a Heineken.

I couldn’t eat the whole pizza, so took the leftovers home with me for lunch or supper tomorrow night.

Just sitting back and relaxing now, about 10:35 pm, before I have to take my insulin shot. Then bed.

Long day, tiring, exhausting, but rewarding. 🙂

It has been a long day.

Woke up this morning feeling somewhat tired and ill, and my right hand and arm were bothering me somewhat. The left shoulder was still agonizing and not comfortable, and I’m still limited in mobility with that arm. The weather was horrible outside, pounding rain, and somewhat cold. Probably didn’t help with my body aching all over. I got up, managed the morning rituals, and then had breakfast (egg scramble with some toast, a bit of jam, and some yogurt followed by coffee).

After breakfast, I did a bit of reading and wrote some notes down about my current scenario idea for the Primeval RPG, and then showered. The hot water seemed to help with my shoulder somewhat, but the muscles were still tense when I finished bathing. I checked some e-mail on the computer, and then perused a couple of on-line sites for stuff that I’m currently interested in.

After lunch, SteveR dropped by, and we went out in the rain. The first stop was the Freedom Mobile store, where I (finally) picked a case for my Samsung Galaxy A5 mobile phone, a travel charger, and a protective layer cover for the screen. Cost me over $70, but I was expecting that, I guess. From there, it was over to Staples, as I needed to do the photocopying of various sheets (player character sheets, mostly) for the four games I’ll be running at CanGames 2017 in just a day short of two weeks. Needed to do copying of material for two Coriolis – The Third Horizon games, a Primeval game, and a Tales From the Loop game, so that ran me a bit of money (but I had budgeted for that).

Picked up a couple of croissant for tomorrow morning’s breakfast, and then stopped off at a Tim Horton’s to check out the new latte that they’re offering, but it doesn’t come in a decaf format (should have known this, given that it’s espresso coffee), so I guess I won’t be having any of that any time soon. Oh, well.

SteveR dropped me off at the house with the various stuff, and after a quick rest for about 5 minutes, he headed for home, and I am watching the Ottawa Senators-New York Rangers NHL playoff game (the Sens are currently leading 3-2 near the end of the 2nd period of play).

A Cold, Messy Saturday Morning December 17, 2016

A messy morning outside on this Saturday, and bitterly cold to boot.

There’s been a good deal of snow overnight, and as I write this around 9:00 am, it’s still coming down, though not as hard as it was when I got up this morning.

I don’t have to go out today, as I managed to buy all the groceries and the like that I needed for the weekend on Thursday (since they’ve been forecasting this stormy, inclement period since then), and the weather’s going to get worse (with freezing rain and more snow) before the weekend’s out.

I plan to spend a quiet weekend, and hope that SteveR will be running his game of Thousand Suns on Sunday (although given the forecast, that may not happen), since that will be the last gaming session of 2016. Unless I decide to run something on Boxing Day. I’ve been working on a couple of things, but nothing is set in stone as of yet.

In the meantime, I’m going to have a cuppa of peppermint tea, and just relax some more this morning.

Chill, everyone. (But not literally). 🙂

It’s Saturday morning.

Had a good gaming session with the Friday night group last night, but I’ll blog about that separately later on today.

I went to bed last night with a terrible migraine that didn’t allow me to get all that much sleeep, but I still managed about five (5) hours’ worth. I’ll probably be taking several naps during the course of the day, and will likely spend as little time on-line as I can for the day. (At least until the migraine goes away.)

I don’t really have any plans for the weekend, other than to engage in some Sunday afternoon gaming (still running the Primeval RPG with them at the moment), and if I’m able to, do some reading and perhaps watch a few PVR episodes.

I do need to go out and purchase some groceries (mostly veggies, as usual) this morning, since I’m running low on a few things and plan to make a stir fry this evening for supper.

That’s about it for this entry.

Wednesday Morning Thoughts August 3, 2016

It’s Wednesday morning. The middle of the week, normally, but with the Civic Holiday on Monday, today feels like a Tuesday rather than a Wednesday. Weird.

Got woken up in the middle of the night by the phone ringing, and while I didn’t get to it in time, I wasn’t able to fall back to sleep that easily. Feeling somewhat tired and achy all over today, and my head hurts a bit.

Another hot day shaping up in Ottawa, with temperatures expected in the 31oC range, and continuing this way until the end of the week. Work is pretty busy today, having picked up a lot from yesterday, and I’m not sure how much time on-line I’ll have for the rest of the day.

Between some grocery shopping that I need to do and the appointment at the Diabetes Clinic with the endo this afternoon, time will be at a premium. Not looking forward to the doctor’s appointment, but there are some things I need to change with the diabetes treatment, so we’ll see how that goes.

For now, however, back to work.
