What a crazy week or so. I say, "or so" because the days sort of all blur together recently. I am not railing against this, even though it is not my preferred life style, just acknowledging that this is something i am getting used to. With my Beloved working i have been trying to keep up with the things she used to do. This is not an every day thing, which in a way makes it harder for me. Fortunately my Beloved encouraged me to get my first "smart" phone - an HTC EVO. I really like this phone, but the relevant part here is that i am able to use a calendar and notepad app to help me keep track of who/what/when/where and sometimes even the how. While i am still working on dealing with the anxiety and probable depression, it seems like it has been getting easier. I have met with a counselor twice now. While i sometimes struggle with feeling like i am somehow failing because i need to do this (see someone to help me through this time of transition), i also recognize that i do indeed need to do this. Maybe not for very long, but for now. The verse (in addition to some Bible study material that was shared) for this week was Isaiah 26:3-4:
You (God) keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you,
because he trusts in you.
Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock. (ESV)
Every once in a while a co-worker and i head to Panera Bread for lunch. Man i really enjoy that place. I usually get the tune sandwhich on whole grain, plus a whole grain bread-thing. Oh, and a large ice tea. There is something about their ice tea that it just plain outstanding. I can see why so many people like going there.
Recently a cousin shared a link to a "new" blog that is there to help parents of children with Aspergers, aptly titled "My Aspergers Child". There is a lot of good information to be had there. I encourage anyone who works with, has a family member, is a parent of, even one yourself, to visit this blog.
Last, but not least, for my ramblingness today, i will touch on MouseHunt once more. For me, the Halloween special event was pretty decent, despite me not being a Halloween-kind-of-guy. Some interesting event mice, and a new trap called the Pumpkin Pmmeler. Not one i will use very often because i already have what i consider to be a better Shadow-type trap, butfun to keep in a collection none-the-less. I even went through the event a second time to get a second copy of the pieces parts so i can eventually construct the "Cackle Lantern" trap - which as far as i can tell, is the most powerful Shadow-trap thus far. However, that thing will take a LONG time to be able to construct just in the sheer number of points and money it takes. On a similar vein, i managed to assemble all of the parts i need for the best Physical, non-limited edition, trap - the RhinoBot, but when i went to assemble it... not "experienced" enough. *sigh* So, i am back to Tribal Isles (where i have just recently assembled the Ancient Spear trap... making me itch for Tier V back at the King's Gauntlet). My Beloved does not quite understand my facination with this game... and i am not so sure i could explain it either. Oh well... back to the hunt!
