Halo 3

Halo 3 came out Tuesday, as you might know if you are the kind of person who follows video game news.

Personally, I'm not exactly sure how it is that my soul mate likes video games. Or, more specifically, how it is that I could come to be married to someone who would preorder a video game.

I'm not a video game player, and I never have been. We didn't even have a Nintendo when I was growing up, and although I can remember pleading for one a few times throughout my childhood, for the most part we didn't feel deprived. I spent most of my free time with my nose in a book, anyway.

Michael, on the other hand, is very much a fan of video games. And as a result, our house has been filled with the sounds of Halo 3 the last couple evenings.

On the bright side, although I don't much care for the sound (Michael likes it movie theater-loud), this has given me time to do things that I want or need to get done. For instance, I can put in some extra work hours without feeling guilty for ignoring Michael, or go up to the stables to visit Panama. This is actually a good thing, because the last couple of weeks I have found myself working at the speed of molasses, and the daily visits to the stables (which I will not give up) don't help at all.

As a former Nintendo addict, I can empathize. I don't allow myself to purchase or play anything now, because otherwise I'll be up all night playing (and never working).

On a side note, I'm happy to hear about your horse. I assume this means he lives close by now?

Yes, Panama is stabled in town now. I've posted about it periodically since he arrived a few weeks ago. All the posts are here, in reverse chronological order of course.

Glad to hear that! I skimmed some of the old posts -- love the pictures -- and I'm very happy you weren't injured with your run-in.

Thanks, me too. :o)

I'm going to have my husband take some pictures this weekend, so I'll post more soon. He's such a pretty boy. :o)

He really is pretty. I've never seen a horse like him. I'm looking forward to seeing more pictures. At least your hubby breaks away from the game long enough to play with the horse. :-)

VERY reluctantly, I'm afraid. ;o)
