Wow, I love updating with good stuff. So I did excatly what I said I would. I went to Best Buy. Everything sounded legit. The ONLY downfall is that the deal was either receive 10% off, or 12 months with no itnerest. So I had that on my mind for the duration of the day / night. Speaking of night, that night was one to remember. At the show Eric hooked me up with a gin and tonic. It was really good, but the sage part of it wasn't my favorite. I guess it was made in AZ. Anyhow, Xeno and Oaklander.... I didn't even realize they were playing, but wow they blew my mind. I mean it was just spot on, what a cool experience! Then from there, Eric didn't have enough party from just 1 show lol, so we went out for more adventure haha. I couldn't believe we were out till past 2. It was way fun, just a lot of unexpected turns, bumped into some fun and interesting people. A night for the books for sure. So then Thursday I woke up and did exactly what I said I was going to. This might sound random, but, with eric on the way home cruising and laughing I said "man tomorrow i'm going to wake up late and after the kids swim lessons i'm going to go buy that comptuer". I did exactly just that. It was a glorious day. It was one of those rare days where on getting a little bit of sleep I felt fantastic, and just had a great day. ooh and I think I might have accidently stole something. I was all excited talking about the rift and asking about anti-virus, and well... i think i accidentally forgot to stop at the register. I really had no intention of stealing, and in fact plan on giving them a ton of business because I think they are awesome. Anyhow, the dude at the door even checked my reciept lol. Anyhow, so that day the excitement for the kids was getting a "momo" day. She took them out and had a good time with them (McDonalds, and also to pick out Ryker a Birthday toy). I don't remember what the toy was otherwise I would write it here.
Friday / Weekend: We woke up went to the gym, and then swim lessons, and then to Chuck-E-Cheese. The kids had a blast. I love going in with just enough coins to get them what they wanted, have a blast, and get out of there. Its a great day to work out, take the kids to swim lessons, and then do something fun. Lifting / cardio / sauna really keep me feeling good. Anyhow, the rest of the day is kinda funny. Josiah came over to "play the Oculus". The funny thing is that It didn't even work hahahha. After all that right? I got a little negative, but I refused to take no for an answer. Turns out the motherboard HDMI's are useless. I actually didn't get it all set up till Saturday around midnight. Saturday I took a break from computer stuff and we went swimming at Almeria. Momo came, and it was pretty fun, but i'm kinda over swimming other then the fact that its so crazy hot outside. I even exchanged my computer thinking there was something wrong with my other one. The internet went super slow, blah it was frustarting. But its all fixed. I even got a Wi-Fi extender because I want this computer to be a rocketship. Of course some things went wrong with that too (which I eventually got sorted out). Sunday was fathers day so we went to Joyride Taco. I got to have a blood Orange Margarita. Normally I let Kristen have the drink and I drive, but Fathers day is my day haha. Boys had cheese crisp, Ryker had Rice with his, and Shane had fruit. I also cooked up some diet food. I'm always on the move right? Ooh to add to that I put up about half the hardware on Sunday, not to mention got my first Oculus VR taste. And that taste was good.
Monday Started with the gym, followed by swim lessons. The rest of the day probably felt uneventful for the kids because I came home and wanted to make the little lady happy by finishing up the hardware in the kitchen (which I did). I had to go back to Loewes to get longer screwes and this lady basically didn't believe me. I hate it when shes working, what a grump. Must suck to be her lol. I did get some VR time, and Dreadhalls makes me basically want to pee my pants.
The morning was the same setup; Gym, Swim Lessons, and then swimming with Momo. Poor Ryker had to use the restroom like 10 times haha. Momo came out this time too. We came home and the boys took a bath. Then i had some Oculus time. This time I got to play the touch. Theres this game with this robot, and you start him up like you would a movie tape player. Its so rad you shoot a gun at targets, butterflys land on your figners, you shoot off bottle rockets, etc. Its just so visceral, immersive and IDK special I guess is a word for it. its an experience, and thats what I am all about in this life the more and varied experiences. Kristen even nerded out with it lol. She loved the robot, and she swam with the dolphins, it was pretty fun to watch.
Wednesday aka today:
Today was too freaking hot! Ok so we started with the normal setup gym, swim lessons, then we went to the store. Ok, I keep writing that like its no big deal, but theres so many details with all of it. For starters I have to get myself ready, my gym bag ready (sandals, board shorts, a change of cloths, towel, protein powder), then I have to get the kids swim stuff packed, and also be sure to get cold fresh waters for them, sun tan lotion, and a snack. So when i'm done with the gym, I gotta give them their snacks in the car on the way to swim. At swim I gotta make time to get them sun tan lotioned up before they jump in the water haha. Its just busy and theres a lot to forget, but knowing I'm doing whats good for my kids is all the motivation I need. I love those little boogers so much! After swim We picked up some cookies that need to be baked in the oven. We came home, and I heated up these mini pizza's for the boys. Then after that We made the cookies. This was Shane's craft for the day. It was pretty cute I told him he is a level 1 chef making these and if they are good he can go onto be a level 2 and next time we will make brownies. He liked that. So As the Brownies are baking I made the Build and Grow Monster Truck with Ryker. When the cookies were baking Shane was like "I think they need 2 more minutes, they look doughie". I thought It was pretty funny to hear a 5 year old think of that. So we left them in 2 more minutes, and they were a little crispy, but still tasted good. After that I finally gave the boys a bath (something ive done each day this week after we get back) it just frees up more time to spend with them and Kristen at night. After that I told Shane I needed some time to do the Rift and after that I would have him play the robot game (He saw it the other day and really wanted to play it). Ooh and at that time I let them get out the playdough, and also facilitated in them cleaning up. Hey I was playing dreadhalls so I needed an excuse to get away from the freaky hellish game (it really is nuts). He had this whole scenereo of what he thought was going on. "daddy you are in a castle and trying to get out of the maze" which actually isn't way too far off, its just missing all the freakyness of why i'm actually playing it haha. did I mention how terrifying the game is? sheesh. Anyway so Once I got done with that I had him come in and we did play the game. Shane loved it, he said his favorite part with the robot was with the gun. it was pretty cute to see him shooting it around and having so much fun. Then I set them up with a netflix show and came on here to write you. I think tomorrow we're going to go swimming, but i'm not sure its so stinking hot. TTYL.
