Even with the weather getting worse this past week my mood has been up noticeably from what it was recently so I'm hopeful that things have improved for me again.
Getting a couple of days work at the end of last week provided exercise which I don't otherwise get, mainly at work but also the getting there and back home. I'd probably do better with three days, not just for the obvious money issues, but two days is enough to leave me with a little leeway.
Saturday night I almost spent at home, but late motivation to leave the house was provided all the way from Australia and I went to a birthday party. Where, admittedly, I spent most of my time on the outside of conversations, even among those I already knew, but I enjoyed myself, playing a game of 8-ball pool and four games of Werewolf with a variety of themes.
Sunday morning at church I was tired as expected after being out late again, but I went into Crèche and this week spent much of it with the littlest of the children, without needing to monitor the behaviour of adults. Post service I ended up with many crumbs on me as I held another child while he ate cake and I headed home until a BBQ was scheduled to happen. Which ended up being mostly a non-event for me as soon after it began I headed to the nearby park to help mind children. The hour I spent there provided sunshine, hugs, and, most surprisingly, exercise. After initially refusing to join in I took place in the game of tag that was being played.
Games last night was also good. I made good purchase decisions in the game of Dominion I played at the start of the evening, winning comfortably. I had my first win at Lords of Waterdeep after spending most of the first three rounds getting requirements for an extra worker over the rest of the players and then managing to catch up and surpass the scores of my opponents largely as a result of that extra action each round. WereWolf was a little disjointed as we didn't know all the roles in play, but it played out quickly as the second and third lynch were the wolves with no other evil roles in play. My last game of the night was one of Galaxy Trucker with a new player that had a couple of particularly unfortunate rounds after the first.
