Since Adam and Comfort are signing on their new house this afternoon, I decided to get some baking out of the way so we can go help move and what not.

A few dozen sugar cookies, a pumpkin pie and a pecan pie were all set after a few hours of baking. That felt so much more productive than just responding to emails all morning, which is what my work day would have looked like.
In the afternoon we went over to their new house (which is less than a mile from us) and helped unload their truck. Well, I mostly just stood around and moved light things while Chris, Comfort's dad, and their friend's Will and Krista unloaded the truck. Comfort and Adam were signing on their house so everyone managed to get most things moved out of the truck before they were done. Which was good, since it gets dark early and had started to snow.

Later in the evening we went with them to home depot so they could pick up a few things, including paint swatches.

It's another vacation day (Friday was my first) and so I spent a big chunk of it just enjoying lazying around and playing video games. I played a lot of Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Dragon Age II.

If I'm not sitting at a desk typing all day, I can squeeze in gaming and it doesn't bother my wrists too much. So I always enjoy having time off of work just so I can have some nice chunks of time with a video game and not worry about wrist pain the next day.

Plus Chris made dinner (like usual). Huzzah!

Today is a much quieter day. I played a lot of Dragon Age II, helped Chris make a shelf out of sisal rope on one of the stools we use as a table...
..and in general hung out. Plus Leki was pretty happy to have someone to cuddle with on the couch.

Today is the first full day of the Grand Rapids Comic Convention. So we headed out pretty early to check things out before it got too busy. Last year (their first year) by 3pm they were turning people away and the building was packed. They've moved to the Delta Plex Arena this year, which is larger than a school gym.

Comfort and Adam were there, of course, and all set and ready to go.
Corinne was there as well, and had a pretty nice booth setup. She's a friend of Comfort and Adam's and has been going to several conventions with them. It was cool to see her there. 

We met up with Dan and we walked around for several hours checking everything out. 

The convention filled up pretty fast. We left by 1pm and it was already getting hot, smelly (there isn't good air ventilation in a few spaces) and packed. I noticed that by 2pm they'd stop selling their tickets because they'd reached capacity. But that's good news for them. It definitely means that there is a demand for this type of show in the area, which is fantastic news for Comfort and Adam since they're moving back to town next week. 

Pokemon was a little after my time and I never had much of an interest in the games or the tv show. But I played through all of the last game (Pokemon X) and some of Soul Silver several years ago, so I picked up Alpha Sapphire this morning. The games still

Since the Grand Rapids Comic Convention is this weekend I wanted to get everything set up and ready to streetpass with other players.

I've been working my way through Dragon Age II the last several evenings. All the snow hasn't really motivated me to do much aside from stay indoors where it's warm.

The game is...different. I'm a little bored with all the quests in Kirkwall, which is the town that servers as the main hub in the game.

And another snowy day before turkey day. I'm ready for it to melt now.

..and snowing...
