I’m posting this as if I wrote it in the early AM before going to sleep, when in reality I was writing it on a notebook from the beginning of Saturday, but didn’t make it to the computer because of Family Movie Night and Living Room Camp Out! I’ll write about those in a bit but first, what I was to post for my “Saturday” post!
I had a dream last night that my little sister was having trouble with something on the computer. I helped her without any hesitation despite not seeing her in years, and despite how she’s treated the whole family like pariahs. I was just glad to help her, to see her. She was like she used to be when we were younger. After helping her, I started thinking about how I’d like her to meet my sons. The last time she’d seen Brandon for any length of time, he wasn’t yet two years old, and I was pregnant with Gabriel the last time I briefly saw her. The dream made me both happy and sad. Happy because I got to see her again. I really miss my little sister. Sad because it was only a dream, and the reality is I might never get to see her again.
I weighed myself this morning, and surprise! Despite feeling like I’ve been munching on everything I shouldn’t, I’ve gone down a pound and a half, putting me at an even 157 lbs. Even today I’ve felt ravenous but I’ve been eating fresh fruit (oranges) everyday, Greek Yogurt, and cottage cheese. I heard a diet high in calcium absorbs less fat than a similar diet with little to no calcium. My husband has just commented on my snackage today, but I’m not worried. I’ve been doing little bits over time. Anyway, if I end up loosing more by this time next week I’ll be the one laughing…or smiling and squeeing!
So, on a lighter note, in Star Wars the Old Republic I got Corso Riggs to finally announce his intentions to my character. Which is, he wants to court her. Also, they shared their first kiss. I wanted to take a screenshot of it, but was too slow. Oh well! I’m sure there will be other opportunities to get squishy screenshots. Speaking of screenshots, I ran into my first in-game flash mob, and got a screenshot of it! “What were they doing?” you ask? NOTHING. They were just standing in a line, some shooting off their flair guns and others taking pictures of people who stopped to look, like me. They were all part of the same guild, and shortly after I decided to move along with my stuff, they started to disperse a little.
Well, that’s all from this house of Geek! Have a good one!
