Quiet Week

It has been a pretty quiet week, in general. I was at a brand new client this week, which is only a 15 minute drive from my house, so it has been nice and no-stress going to and from work. Work has been good, as I learn the Real Estate process at this company. All told, I am feeling quite relaxed and happy with things. I am in one of those situations where I have been doing a lot of one of my hobbies (in this specific case, playing computer games), but that is waning and I haven't yet dived into the next thing yet, so I feel like I have lots of time to take care of business, like raking leaves or general clean-up stuff around the house.

Another aspect of the downtime is that one of my old hobbies, which I have not entertained for years, is threatening to make a comeback. Yes, all of those wargaming miniatures in the basement have been on my mind this week. It all started when I got the idea to buy some minis for the RPG game I am running and have a professional paint them up like the characters in the game. In doing that, I was perusing the Reaper site, as well as The Miniatures Page, and man there is some really cool stuff out there. I also found my old Kill Zone game and realized that the minis in there would work well for the Shadowrun game I play in, and I am now threatened with dropping hundreds of dollars on cool miniatures that I will most likely never use. *sigh* It's all so cool in my mind, though. It is probably a very good thing that I am back on my budget austerity plan after the summer, or I would have already dropped $150 on miniatures games this week.
