It was a nice quiet day off from work. Hopefully I won’t get a call and I will have a great four day weekend. Here’s to hoping. It was a nice lazy day. I mainly just played video games all afternoon. Contrary to popular belief, I don’t play video games at work all day, so I haven’t had a chance to play anything since March. I downloaded the trial version of Rise of Nations after seeing a review for it on XPlay. It was pretty fun. Much like any other real time strategy game, but more like Civilization in that you move through the ages from a wandering nomad tribe to modern era equipment. I also played Jak and Daxter, which I’ve been trying to finish and MVP Baseball 2004.
As a family, we didn’t do much either and it rained all afternoon. We’ve hit the Florida rainy season when it rains every afternoon and it has rained every day for at least two weeks.
Our first movies from NetFlix arrived and I watched The Last Samurai last night. It was a very good epic film. I recommend it to those of you who haven’t seen it.
Here’s another picture from our redecorated living room. Jennifer bought some metal wall plaques and some new potted plants. It helps break up the giant wall that the television set sits on.
