It's been a long haul, and it's not over yet, but today I took a sick day just for myself and have been resting and trying to renew myself for a while.
My MIL is still a crabby old so-and-so who doesn't seem to appreciate her son coming across the country to see her. Both of us will be glad when he comes home next week. My boy dog, Bubba, is on some new meds, so I'm working on keeping him feeling-pain free and getting him to eat. He wants to eat, but Penny, my problem-child dog, keeps trying to snatch his food from his bowl. She's about to get put outside while he eats since it's finally staying above freezing here for a bit. I know he's never going to "get better" but we are in the management stage of his illness, and I hope we can manage it for a good, long time.
I finished the Spirit of Revenge
game, which was okay. Didn't do the bonus section since I didn't care about the characters. I did pick up the odd little SE game from yesterday Beyond the Invisible: Evening
. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles- morphing objects, achievements, crap you have to collect, etc... it's just a basic game with dark artwork and a creepy-ish story line. There's a "helper" but so far I think I've only needed him about three times, so he's not invasive. Overall, it's not bad. I like that I can just use the map to jump locations, and since it's a SE, there's no Strategy Guide, but the map helpfully puts a big, yellow exclamation point wherever I'm supposed to do something, so it all works out. I think it's a new developer, and most likely not from the US, since there are a few grammar "quirks" but I'll forgive that because it's different and a change of pace that I'm fairly enjoying.
Hope I didn't bum you all out with my post earlier. I just had a lot going on and sort of vented all over you all. Sorry about that!
Oh, and a new Puppetshow game, DJ? What a shock.
