October 15, 2017: Restarting XCOM

DuoLingo Streak: 43 Days

I was up long before anyone else this morning.  I have been playing XCOM for a while and am not doing so well at it.  I have identified some places where I really messed up in my original run through of the game and feel that because I screwed it up so badly that I need to go back and do it all again to get it right this time.  So this morning, while everyone was sleeping, I fired it up and began another play through of XCOM: Enemy Within.

I got in several hours of gaming today and, in many respects, my new game is already way ahead of the other game that I have put nearly sixty hours into!  Liesl did eventually come out and hang out with me in the living room so that she could watch me play.

After the kids were up for a while, the kids wanted to use the Steam laptop.  So Luciana, who had waited better, got to go first and played Slime Rancher.

Later in the evening, Liesl played some games on line with Garrett.  They got several hours in on Age of Empires 2 HD.  Such a great game for them to be playing.

While the kids were video gaming, Dominica and I got back into Blacklist.  We are plowing through that with reckless abandon.  We will be done with the second season very soon.

Tonight, at bed time, I finished reading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the second book in the series.  The girls are loving it.  They are so into the story and the universe.  And they are loving our night time reading time.
