Sometimes it seems like everything in life is set on "fast forward". I've been in that mode for months, always hoping that there would be a day when I was decompressed enough to stop and think about things for a while. Today, it seems, is finally that day...
I unloaded the notebook in which I keep the current log of my miniatures games from my briefcase in late March, so I spent some time this morning combing through photos, notes, and posts on the Reaper Forums to reconstruct the games I've been in lately. I was a little surprised to find that I have managed to be in 24 miniatures games so far this year, despite the frantic pace of things. I won't get anywhere near the usual annual goal of 52, but it looks like I shouldn't have any trouble meeting my minimum goal of 26, given that a Ghost Archipelago game is scheduled in two weeks, and the HAWKs will be running our Barrage mini-convention at the end of the month.
William was in for a visit (from grad school at the University of Michigan) two weeks ago in conjunction with a friend's wedding, and I took a day off from work to spend some time with him. Because we are moving relatively soon, he was digging through his stock of possessions remaining here, including his 1/72 plastic Hordes of the Things armies. Between that and the couple of stands I had recently finished off during a business trip, we decided to unpack some scenery and play a couple of games. I was using my Airfix Robin Hood-based medievals, and William was using a mixed bag of El Cid figures and Arabian Nights.

It would be easy to argue that I have too many projects going on at the moment, but I don't really want to address that right now, so I am trying to just paint and play some games rather than spend too much time on "should" and "ought to".
