It's been a week...

Eeek! It's been a week! I guess I have been busy! So I have a back log of things on my mind to blog about on here.

This past weekend was fun. Some good friends from Indy came to visit, an old friend from high school/home and her husband (who through the years I consider as friend too). As far as couples go, they seem to be the couple who best "clicks" with me and my husband. The four of us are all very different personality-wise, like my husband and I are pretty opposite in many ways, my friend and her husband are very opposite (she is outgoing and talks alot, he is pretty quiet, rarely speaks his mind, at least until you get to know him more) but somehow they make it work. Somehow, our personalities compliment each other well. Together, we mostly enjoy just hanging out, talking about life, going out to dinner, and, above all, playing board games. Not just regular board games like Trivial Pursuit and Monopoly, but the Euro-style gamer games (trust me, if you aren't into them, you won't know any of the titles. But if you are interested, go to My husband is into these kind of games and introduced them to me. Mostly they are strategy-type games, which I have never thought I would enjoy or be good at playing, but for some of the games I am actually pretty good! Anyway, I am getting off-topic. So we introduced these kind of games to this couple and they are really into them, so now whenever we hang out we tend to play. So, in a nutshell, it was a fun time and great to see them!

Also, the weather has finally taken a turn for the better, which has really lifted my mood. It's been consistently sunny, warmer and spring-like for several days in a row. And though initially the time change messes with my internal clock, now I am liking it because it is lighter later. I love when the sun stays out longer! So even though there are a few cases at work stressing me out now, and the news daily recounts how the economy is getting worse, and the world seems so dark and uncertain, I have this overall feeling of being hopeful and happy that I usually feel in early spring.

Well this post seems to be very rambly and random, so I think I will close here.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!


  1. Sounds like a fun time. That reminds me of when I was a dad ALWAYS wanted to play Risk. That game freakin' took forever and I sucked at it. LOL I like the games where everyone's shouting Pictionary or Mad Gab or something.

  2. hmm, maybe I'll have to bring a few games to try out with you, the ones I know Jaime likes too. I have only played Risk a few times and didn't do too well.

    I also continue to like games like Pictionary or another good one is Cranium. You do a little of everything in that one.
