Meredith returned today from two weeks visiting her parents. In the middle of that, we met in Ohio and went to my cousin's wedding over the long 4th holiday.
With her and Henry gone, I've found myself with quite a bit of free time, and much of that was given over to games.
I've played 3 games of Rommel in the Desert (2 were learning games, 1 was real), 3 games of Warriors of God (2 were learning, 1 was real), and several solo games of BattleLore.
Knowing that I had to meet Meredith this evening at the airport, I knew I had to get some errands done, but I couldn't resist a little morning gaming. I had heard a rumor that several members in the SABG were anxious to play Combat Commander, but you couldn't prove it by the lack-luster response I got to a game request. Luckily, by spreading my net a little wider I was able to land an opponent for the morning.
My Germans were defeated by Kirk's Russians. I had a nice lead during most of the game, but I couldn't figure out a plan for my left flank. Kirk developed a plan before me, and soon my troops were leaderless, and they started dropping rapidly.
Then this afternoon I accomplished the following to prepare for Meredith's return:
- replaced a flat tire and the also flat spare (that was annoying...)
- touched up the paint job around our new house numbers
- did several loads of laundry
- replaced all the windshield wiper blades
- did some general straightening and cleaning
- bought dinner
Overall quite a productive few weeks. I got a lot of stuff done around the house plus I got to play a lot of games. I would have liked to get in a few more games and tasks, and I was sorry to miss the Mon night meetings, and also Brian and Jacqui's 4th thing. Still, I can't complain.
Now it's back to life with a rambunctious little toddler. He's not quite ready for Combat Commander, but he's starting to get good at peekaboo [not hide and seek...].
