November 14, 2009: The Day of Oblivion

I didn’t get to bed until two this morning.  I have been very, very short on sleep for a few weeks now.  I have no yet really recovered from the trip to Texas.  Those following SGL can see that I have not been keeping up here at all.  I have just been so busy.  It has been awful.  The Texas trip kicked it off and then Liesl being sick the moment that we arrived how, then this trip to NY in a few days then off to Orlando just in time to get back and attempt to sell the house in under three weeks so that we can move down to Texas by mid to late December before Christmas!  Whoa.  I’m getting exhausted just thinking about everything that needs to be done.

Fortunately for me, today proved to be slower at work that it often is and I got a bit more time to relax than normal.  I decided that doing a little relaxing was more important than doing a ton of work.  So today, when time allowed, Dominica and I played quite a bit of Oblivion.  It was really nice. Lots of time spent with the family and just having a good time.

We have made a ton of progress in Oblivion today.  Well past completing the Knights of the Nine quest and I have no finished the entire Fighter’s Guild as well.  I am starting the Mage’s Guild quests while cleaning up some side stories that have been hanging for a long time as well as slowly working my way through the main storyline.

We did our best today to avoid really thinking about all of the work that has to be done before we are able to leave on Wednesday.  There is so much to do before the end of December that it all feels very overwhelming.
