August 12, 2009: Seeing the Future

Up early again this morning.  Liesl actually slept through the entire night!  The entire night.  She never does that.  I had to go into her room at six thirty this morning just to be sure that she was really breathing.  The Tylenol really did the trick I guess.  I did not hear one peep from her all night long.

Liesl slept solidly for nine or ten hours.  She and Dominica got up around eight this morning!  Must be nice.

At around ten this morning our Internet access went down.  Most likely due to the approaching storm.  No way for me to work after that.  While there was a lot of work to be done and I don’t like things sitting around waiting for me I did appreciate having a forced break in the middle of the day.

I went up to the living room with Dominica and Liesl and spent a nice, long lunch period playing the “See the Future” downloadable content for Fable II on the XBOX 360.  It was awesome to get a chance to really just sit down and play that without feeling like there was something else that I really needed to be doing.

“See the Future” is very short, which I knew ahead of time, and I managed to make it through pretty much the entire expansion just during my extended lunch break.  I completed the “Snow Globe” quest, the “Costume Party” quest and the “See the Future” quest.  I still need to beat the “Colosseum” but that should not take long.  Maybe I will get to play it again sometime soon.  That would be great.

It’s been about five months since the last time that I have played Fable II.  It was great to get a chance to return to the world and see what was going on.  My character has $7.3 million now but there is nothing left to buy.  I can’t wait until Fable III releases.

Our Internet access was out for about three hours.  It came back on at the end of lunch and I was able to get back to work early in the afternoon.  It ended up being a really, really busy day at the office.  I didn’t have any time to relax at all and ended up putting in a few extra hours just to get enough done to call it a day.

Dominica made dinner and I took a break from work to eat and we started watching Race to Witch Mountain – the new Disney remake of the 1975 classic Escape to Witch Mountain.  I had to go back to work for a while in the middle of the movie but we were able to finish it eventually.  It was pretty good.  It had several actors in it that I really like, like Ciarán Hinds, Carla Gugino and Dwayne Johnson.

Liesl and I got to hang out quite a bit today.  It was a good day for daddy – daughter bonding.

After the movie my work was done so we watched some of the Wizards of Waverly Place and relaxed for the evening.

I did get a chance to play a little Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen today.  It has been a while since I really got to play any of it.
