Hello friend and thanks for stopping by!
It’s been a while since I posted, mainly because I’ve been enjoying connecting with you about the post that meant the most to me thus far. Side note, thank you fellow bloggers for the re-blogs and link backs- I hope it helped bring encouragement and inspiration to the people in your web. I’ve also enjoyed chatting with all of you on your own posts, about your own content.
I feel the urge to mention that I do this solely for fun & hope that was clear in my intro. I’ve noticed that a lot of bloggers really hope to create a massive following and wonder when their big break will be– don’t get me wrong I like knowing people are reading my stuff, but what I really enjoy is writing and connecting with the people that read. I started this for fun & for the love of writing and the blogging community has been such a cool surprise. I’m loving being able to talk with nerds about nerdy stuff! I do have a few things in the works just for funzies so hopefully I’ll blast your reader this week (maybe).
SO- The hubby and I recently took a little break from gaming. I know what you’re thinking, but I swear I didn’t make him do it. It was actually his idea (not kidding). He wasn’t entirely sure why he wanted to do it, but he felt like he needed to, and obviously I supported him (why wouldn’t I???…more sleep and more I’m not super exhausted cuddles, yay!)
Ya’ll, it was great. (I know what you’re wondering- and YES, I’ve lived in North Carolina the legal amount of years to earn the right to say ya’ll). If my post on gaming and marriage resonated with you, one thing I didn’t add to my list of potential action items at the end, that I have recently thought a lot about, is that every now and then it may benefit you and your spouse to take a short, intentional, gaming break every now and again.
Why did I enjoy it, you ask? Here’s 5 reasons.
- We got to catch up on shows- shout out to The 100, The Goldbergs, and Brooklyn Nine Nine.
- We got to cuddle and snuggle and fall asleep at the same DESCENT hour of the night.
- It was refreshing to catch up on sleep… The DZ had my husband throwin’ down into the wee hours of the night on the regular. And I was staying up with him watching him play (well,for the most part)
- We made time to go on a date- shout out to Dead Crow Comedy Club in NC.
- We had time for other nerdy fun. I’m talking about some serious battles in… bum bum bum…Risk, Starwars Edition. We got into it.
He played as The Empire and I played as the Rebellion the whole time. The first game, we didn’t really know what we were doing, so I crushed him (sorry, babe). The second game, he won by a landslide (pictures of only the wins- sorry, Boo).
Game three, I came back and kicked his booty again. Next time we play, we plan on switching sides. That means I have plenty of time to figure out what my Empire strategies will be (insert evil villain laugh here).
Thanks for stopping by & I wish you all strong relationships & happy gaming!
