Normally, I would go for,

Cannot wait for the week to be over!

However, because of the upcoming work trip, the week won’t be really over until next week.

There is no internet, Mar wouldn’t understand why Trolls wouldn’t play. Luckily, she’s gotten into playing Mario Kart again. This is the first outage that I can recall ever. Furthermore, Marley is happy because without internet, she can’t do her school homework on the iPad 😅

And so it starts, ❄️ 🌨

😎 Redone and with a new domain.

Expensive, but so good! And it’s local.

Second COVID shot for Marley today. She did awesome!

Somehow, I don’t know how, that thick coil snapped. It was working this morning, it opened and closed. Now the garage door won’t open. 😒

A PS5 story

A while ago, I traded all my consoles and physical games, well, most physical games., others, I kept. I did it because I wanted a PlayStation 5 and knew I wouldn’t quite have the budget for it. I made around 650.00 USDs in store credit.

When I asked what were the chances of me getting a PS5, they, well, hopes weren’t high. I knew this, I knew it was going to take time. As a small local retailer, they didn’t have one in stock, and they couldn’t tell for sure when would they have one? The owner of the store, did offer to “hunt down” one for me. Again, I knew it wasn’t going to be right away, which I was completely fine with. I mean, my Nintendo Switch backlog it’s quite large.

About two months later, Black Friday comes around, and unlike everyone else, I do no shopping whatsoever. I do look at the Switch store and whatnot, but that is the extent of it. That evening we had Thai food, delicious! I also happened to have a very tasty barrel aged imperial stout to try. I ate my food and poured my beer. As I am about to take my first glorious sip, a call comes is, the caller ID showed — VIP Games. My heart starts pounding, and I put my beer goblet down.

Hello, Luis? (That’s my first name on my ID, thus, Luis) I am told that in less than ten minutes we will have a PlayStation 5 for you. So, you’re more than welcome to come down and pick it up

To which I replied

I’ll be right there

A 10-minute drive later, I arrived to VIP Games. It was weird, it was the only opened and light up, store in the strip mall, besides the Wendy’s. I was having the same rush feeling when I bought my Nintendo Switch, they were rare, and there was only one, and I grabbed it. I felt like I needed to conceal it until I was safe at home.

I get in the store, the owner greets me.

We are just finishing everything in the system, and it’ll be ready

A few minutes later, he hands me the console.

You still have credit available. Any game you’d like to take with you?

I look around…

Do you happen to have Ghost of Tsushima, the director’s cut edition?

He looks around, the lady next to him hands it to him

Yes, and it’s on sale

After purchasing the PS5 and Ghost, I still have some credit left. He asked me if I wanted to cash, to which I replied to keep it in the system. In the future, rather than buying games at regular price from Amazon or Best Buy, I am coming down to this little store. It took time, but they went above and beyond to get me my console, they deserve my monies. Moreover, here is where I purchased my beloved Pokémon Shinning Pearl about a week ago.

Now, I did take advantage of some Black Friday sales. I purchased Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, again! Yes, I played the heck out off this game on the Xbox One S, but I knew that this game looks and performs better on the PS5, plus I have been wanting to replay it, just like Ghost. It only const me 23.00 USD, not bad at all.

So far, I am spending my time playing Ghost, and the difference in performance between the PS4 version and the PS5 it’s quite significant. The graphics, too, game it seems more detailed and crispier. I cannot wait to experience Valhalla on this console.

Other games I am excited to play are, the new Grand Turismo, God of War Ragnarök and Gungrave.

Up next, the Xbox, gotta have all the consoles. But that will wait much longer. Maybe sometime mid-2022 or later.

A date at the urgent care

In this household, we have all been sick for weeks. We believe the patient zero was Luna. Or was it Marley? Either way, Luna was diagnosed with croup, also tested for COVID. Marley was diagnosed with a virus, not COVID. I was at first diagnosed with a cold, also tested for COVID. I was also advised that if continued to get checked again, in case it was a sinus infection.

Days passed, 3 out of 4 of us had been tested for COVID at this point, all with negative vals. Both Marley and Luna are doing much better, but Marley still has a cough.

Annie, suggested that we both went to our local urgent care to get checked. Marley and I had a date, with the doctor.

Marley is fine, for her, is just the remnants of whatever she had, so she needs a few more days.

Me? Well, I was diagnosed with bronchitis.

Yay, lucky me ╰(˙ᗜ˙)੭━☆゚.・。゚ 

Also, ear infection, well, she said it was not quite there yet, but she would treat me as if it was. And getting some kind of inhaler.

So swell!
