Yikes! Monday the 13th! No wonder the weekend felt like it did.

WoW: I got less done than I wanted to, but Pandadulce is about to ding 58.

RL: Poor Tyger. Theft goes up around Spring Festival and her phone got stolen. I spent much of the weekend helping her evaluate her choices and she finally decided to go with a popular Chinese brand (Xiaomi). Unfortunately, when it arrived, she had problems with it -- I don't know if it was just the luck of the draw or if they're cranking them out so fast that quality control is getting sloppy. The good news is that we did manage to have a nice dinner on Sunday and it cheered her up for a bit. That much of the weekend was a success.

Here's hoping that you all had a better weekend! Let's hear about it. Smiley: lol

WoW - after spending too much on heirlooms and pets, I'm feeling pretty poor. So, I think I'm going to focus on making some money. My plan? Run a bunch of dailies on my 90 DK. It won't be big money, but it will be a reliable boost to my bottom line. I think I'll work on Order of the Cloud Serpent rep, too. I still need those pets. And, hit the trainers for easy money and a chance at battle stones.

Probably mostly parking my 80 trio (druid, pally, priest). I may dabble a bit on each of them, but I kind of want to build up a heap of rested XP. I'm not in a big hurry to get to the Cata content anyway.

RL - Hockey tonight. Late game again. I'm hoping to keep my 3-game scoring streak going :-) Saturday probably not much. Clean the house. Hike with the dog. Sunday, a friend is having a birthday party. So, that should be fun. Maybe sneak in some Xbox One time while I'm there.


RL - Squeked out a 3-2 win on Friday night. No points (-1, but nothing I could do about it), so my streak is dead...time to start a new streak. The real down side was not geting to bed until 3 am after the 11pm game. Screwed up my sleep schedule big time. Hiking, check. Clean the house, check. No Xbox, but the party was fun. Other than that, nothing too crazy. Found a decent Vietnamese place not too far from our new house. Still scouting the general area and learning where things are.

WoW - As planned, I went after dailies pretty hard this weekend. Even managed to get the 25 Pandaren dailies in a day achievement. I'm a little less poor now, but still need to accumulate for a while. I got a big chunk of the Cloud Serpent rep done. I'm now at 18k of 21k needed. I was really surprised how quickly that went. I found probably 10k worth of eggs, but otherwise the dailies and quests just piled it up. Another day and that will be done. Big bonus to the dailies was getting two spirit pets (Fire and Water) within about 20 minutes of each other. I hadn't done them for quite a while. I was sick of the no-love RNG. Well, RNG smiled this time. I also picked up I think four battle stones over the weekend, so chipping away at the rares. Now it's time to skip the trainers for a bit...they get very tedious after a few days.

I also fit in time to level my 80 trio. Now all three are up to 81. I logged on just to hit profession dailies, then ended up running dungeons for fun. Well, mostly fun, lol. The highlight (lowlight) was the Halls of Stone group where an Arms warrior queued as tank just so he could get a faster queue, then proceeded to suck. No shield, couldn't hold aggro, and didn't know where he was going. And, he blamed it on me, saying the healing sucked. LOL. After struggling through half of it, with a running verbal battle with the lock in the group, he finally dropped and we got a real tank and finished easily. Gotta love some people.

Hope everyone had a good weekend.

Late to the party but not too obnoxious ...

Friday - cleaned/cooked and watched Pacific Rim for the 2nd time, still not a horrible movie.

Saturday was errands and grabbing the granddaughter for what was supposed to be a fun weekend with a baby. Baby got fever and snot so it was not pleasant staying away till 4am trying to console a crying 9 month old.

Sunday was returning said baby and trying to relax. Did some cleaning and cooking and diet planning.

Started playing Tera and still playing War Thunder, was either too tired or too busy to play much of either so it was a typical weekend, a lot done but nothing accomplished.
