Let’s see, dull weekend stuff. I can do that! I’ve been trying for a couple of hours how to write something deeper, but I think for now since it’s so difficult to come out, I’ll go with easy.
So Saturday was laundry. An easy laundry day, despite getting a later start than I prefer. Things went quickly; I was able to get writing done, my daughter was able to play video games she enjoyed. My son stayed behind due to sick, hanging out with my husband and doing sick man things (probably video games).
While I was doing laundry, I did a thing. Minecraft is more and more interesting lately, and I want a space for my kids and me to be able to play together. I used the free Realms trial; Realms is reasonably priced and has lots of options, quite honestly. But for now, since money is an option, I decided to go with the least expensive option. For $2.50 a month, I can whitelist the kids, and we have a server.
I signed up for a Minecraft server. Oh dear, what have I done? :)
Saturday evening I covered yesterday, so you can read about that here. It was more than a little emotional, writing that post and doing some of the things I about. I ended up staying awake quite late, until 2:00 a.m. when my cat started nagging me to go to bed. I just wanted to make sure I was available in case a friend needed me.
So this morning I slept in until half past noon. It was fabulous, although I probably should have gotten up at 9:30 a.m. when I lay in bed watching a Twitch recording from Xisuma (a Hermitcraft Youtuber). That’s all right, though. Sunday, relax, good.
When I woke up, as I started to pull out the Ziploc bag I use to hold my notebooks, notecards, and stamps for my morning ritual, I caught sight of a tweet from a friend to whom I sent a notecard. The tweet led to a blog post, and then more emotion and tears similar to the night before.
Affirmations and gratitudes and reading took on an even greater weight. Is good. So good.
The rest of my day has been Minecraft, and after this, it will be writing and watching television with the kids. I have a story I think will end up in the 10,000-20,000 word range, if I can settle down and sort out the different perspectives. I have a Sunday evening task to complete that should be fairly painless, but that could change.
It’s been a rollercoaster weekend, but not a particularly bad one.
