We’re back, re-acclimating to real life by burying ourselves in our favorite fantasy game.
It’s tough too, three weeks of travel and adventure are enough to make one forget that things cost money and that earning money isn’t fun (which is why they have to pay you to do it in the first place).
Today, my Gamer Girl and I officially retake the reins of our lives, now joined together, and face up to things like the fact that I am due at work, and all of those groceries ain’t gonna shop themselves.
But I don’t mind. It may be real life, painfully real, but it is still filled with family and friends and games and DDO and Denver Broncos and a weird but special cat and many other facets that make life worth living.
I have too many memories and artifacts to share but I cannot resist posting my favorite video from our trip. So I will stop resisting:

Although we returned early Thursday, it was Saturday before we’d decompressed enough to turn on DDO. It felt like an old friend. We didn’t play as hardcore as we often do on the weekend, but enough to put a new level on my completionist and to return my OMG Artificer to level 20. We’ll see if she is still OMG in the epic levels.
I was immediately confronted with two things, one bad, one good, but I’ll go into detail on them both later in the week.
Not today though, today I have to focus on whipping my lazy backside into working shape and go earn some money.
Plus, I am married now, and I like that, a lot. On with the happily ever after!

p.s. Thank you, everyone, for the kind wishes and nice words! Even on the forums! We both appreciated it very much!
