Let’s see where was I when I left off…
Ah, yes. I was getting ready to head off for Thanksgiving weekend. Well, Let’s check back in with the Hall of Awesomeness.
So Wednesday night I drove back up to Fargo. Didn’t do much, although I did surprise Heather. She thought I wasn’t gonna get there until 11 pm or so. So she was excited when I showed up at 7:30. She was making a pie and we grabbed some food for supper.
So, of course, there was lots of food and bouncing back and forth. We started out at my Aunt’s place and after dinner went over the Heather’s place for dessert. Then after a bit we went back to my aunt’s place to play some cards. My memory is fading, but I’m pretty sure the rest of the night was uneventful. We went to bed pretty early.
Friday, 4:17 am – UGHHH! Heather woke me up to go shopping on Black Friday. We went and stood outside Office Max so Heather could get a laptop, and I picked up a digital camera for my mom. Then tried to go to Best Buy, yeah right, it was a mad house and we called that one off. Although I still want some LCD monitors for my computer. Then we stood outside GameStop for over an hour to try to get a new Nintendo Wii. But no luck…
I called an end to our Black Friday adventure and it was only 7am. So we grabbed a bite to eat at the IHOP and crawled back into bed. After a few hours we woke up and grabbed some dinner and packed up to go to Ada. But not before I grabbed my own ping pong paddle from Scheels. It had been a while since I had really hung out with the family so I thought it’d be nice to drop in. Everybody was gone, so Heather and I played ping-pong at the community center where my mom was working. She’s not to shabby, I think she practices when I’m not around. Friday night we just sat around the house.
Ok, woke up…air mattress had deflated. Comfy. Heather spent most of the day baking with my mom and I went out to Ben’s for a while to hang out. Ben came into town and we hung out with Heather for a while too. We went to Santa Clause 3 in Ada. Then we picked up Ben and brought him back to Fargo with us because he had to take the midnight train…to nowhere….ummm, anyway…
We dropped him off and went to Heather’s apartment and watched Pirates of the Carribean.
Sunday we slept in and when we got it we had some food and tried to decide what to do before I took off. We agreed upon going to see Pirates of the Caribbean II at the Safari. Then I took off down that long, lonely road home.
Not much to report still pretty burnt out from the weekend. Got off work and stat around with in my apartment…started playing with a program called Blender, which is used for 3D modeling and animation, so you may see some crappy movies from me sooner or later…probably later.
Not much to report again, work still is a little busy, went to Aikido tonight. Then I came home and have been pretty much doing the blog redesign you are seeing. I think it looks a lot better. Then I started writing this and a few hours later, my mini-novel is finished.
You don’t realize how hard blogging can be. To get the motivation to continually write about your life can be pretty hard. Especially, when you have to constantly filter out all the naughty stuff you don’t want the rest of the public to know about ;).
Not much else to report coming up, gonna take another test for work soon. Going back to Fargo again this weekend to help out at Northwest’s black belt testing. I’m teaching another jujutsu class at Tim’s next Thursday.
