So how was everyone’s celebration? Mine was a quiet one with family, good food and a Christmas movie or two.
One gift I got was a computer game. At first, I was a little ho-hum over it because I’m not good at games and usually lose interest after a few hours of suffering through impossible odds. But not this time.
I played for about an hour on Christmas day and it was good. I told my son it was the perfect fit for me and it was an honest response. Then on Boxing Day I did the strangest thing, for me anyway, I got up at six, poured a coffee and started to play.
For hours I was on top of my little world then everything went wrong and I was seething. Everywhere I went I was clobbered. By nine o’clock I was pounding on my son’s door asking him to help me.
It is wonderful to have such a son and here’s why I think so.
He not only offered suggestions and sat with me while I went so slow he thought he might fall asleep, his words. He bought the game as well and plans to play it so he can help me with my next several stages. Oh, I mean levels.
All I can say is I was going to play for a few hours and get on with my plans for Boxing Day. Ha! I took a short break to do what I must in the real world, then played all day and late into the night.
I finally get why people do this. Sure it might be a time suck, but it is also too much fun. 🙂
I’m late. Yes, very, very late. I forgot to schedule my post this week. *cheeksburn* I’m still playing that crazy game. Sorry about that.
So, what did you do for your special day(s)? Tell me. I’d love to hear about it.
And if you have time drop by my hosts while I’m touring. Monday to Friday, this week I’m visiting:
