Once in a Blogtime

OK, I promised a post, and will try to keep up with this a bit more. Things are still hellishly hectic at work, with no end in sight for the mandatory overtime. Other than work, however, it's been a pretty good year. I gave up on playing World of Warcraft early on in the year because it got a little too expensive to maintain an account, and the game was getting redundant and boring again. I decided to pick up again with Diablo 3 again after five years, and have been playing it quite regularly, to the point where I'm starting to get a bit better at playing it. I'm finally getting higher levels on my current seasonal character, and he's becoming quite kickass.

Thanksgiving was great. My cousin Laurie came down for a couple of days, and brought my sister, Melanie and my grand-niece Lena with her. The family dinner was on Wednesday night, and Laurie made everything. Kat and I were late, thanks to my job not letting me reschedule my shift or letting me leave earlier than 5pm. Regardless, it was a great time, and we had a good time with family catching up on memories, and - thanks to my mom, I acquired a new nickname of "Mudpie".

Now, we're in December, and all the presents (save for a few last minute ones) are already bought and ready to be wrapped. We're doing a secret Santa gift exchange with my co-workers on the 20th. I got the gifts I ordered for my secret Santa partner ordered and should be arriving soon. Also got a few small things to give out to everyone.  I have some pretty awesome co-workers. Without some of them, I think I'd probably be in an insane asylum by now.  Well, that's about it for this post. I know, it's short, and it's boring. I will try to do better in my next post. I'm just a bit exhausted tonight to post more.

And Another Year Goes By (Almost)... [and still no regular posts]

I am still here, but just busy with work, and too tired afterward to post much. Keep watching this space- I promise I will try to post more after the new year, and maybe even to the level of posts that I used to do with my old blog.

quick post... I swear I will try to get back to doing this regularly. been a rough couple of years with mom being in and out of the hospital, and too much mandatory overtime at work. but things (knock on wood) seem to be slowing down enough for me to actually have some semblance of a life again.  started playing STO again recently, and upgraded my main ship some... here's a couple of pics of the refitted USS LoPresto.

with that, I close this post. Hopefully more "fuller bodied" posts to come soon.
