We went on a mini family vacation last week. We went up to my mom’s house in Chicago. It was a generally good time. My husband and I went to AdeptiCon. For those who don’t know, that is a convention for wargaming nerds. We spent way too much money but I have no regrets. I was sick when we went, or I probably would have felt like spending even more. Next year we know to save up money specifically for it so we don’t have to budget. We also will register early and get a full swag bag.
I personally purchased a box of Malifaux minis (Curiosity Killed The Cat) I really liked the crazy cat lady theme. And a mystery minis box that had some Batman and Warhammer minis. We got a few new games to try: RumbleSlam, Key Forge, and Puppet Wars. I wanted to get a bust to paint but didn’t feel like I would be good enough to do it justice. Maybe someday. One was a set of 4 dinosaurs. The other was a really cool bust.
When we visited, we took my youngest to the hospital at 3:30am. I felt like she was having some struggles with breathing which isn’t unusual for her when she gets a cold or viral thing going. She was negative for RSV and flu and the chest Xray was fine. They gave her a breathing treatment just to see if it gives her some relief. Overall, she was alot better by the next day. Just in time for me to get it.
I gained 8 pounds in 5 days. I’m expecting it to be just crazy bad-for-you food bloat and I’ll be back down by this weekend. Already 2 lbs down, 6 to go.
