02AFF: Wrapping Up a Good Weekend

Sunday Keto Pandesal

 Metro Manila Community Quarantine - Day 743

I realize we didn't have any RPG sessions this weekend, but at least we still had a good time. We got to play board games in person with a close friend on Friday night. Then we had an online board game session all of Saturday night well into Sunday morning. And today...was just nice. We almost had another friend over for board games today, but something came up. But it's just as well - we've still had a good restful day. Tobie got the groceries done. I had a good workout. And we watched two episodes of Strong Girl Bong-soon to make up for not having watched an episode yesterday. 

I'm really excited about gaming with our friends again - even if I might miss our first planned session in April should the Singapore trip coincide with the schedule. But I'll still be happy if it happens and I'll gladly dial into a video call just to watch everyone play together. I can be patient enough to wait for my turn once the next schedule comes around.

But I'm also trying not to get too excited. There's still talk of new variants triggering new surges and other possible complications given the pandemic still isn't over. But we're only human and it has been too long since we've been able to do all the things we used to do. We've already largely reclaimed our O Bar nights, even if they still stress me out a bit. So more regular in-person tabletop gaming is the next major milestone in our new normal recovery plan.

I totally feel ready for the week ahead, which I know is going to be busy on numerous fronts. But hey, one step at a time.
