Post Conference Malaise – Travel Uncertain

My One Cup Challenge
Photo-A-Day #4324

I was awoken to a message that the second leg of my trip home had been cancelled. I then took a look at the weather. Apparently, even more snow is going to be dumped all over my home. This is causing flights to be cancelled over and over. so I hopped on to see if I could switch the flight. I did and then that one had cancelled the second leg again. So this time I just called and was waiting on the queue. However, I didn’t have to wait on the phone. I could hang up and my spot in line would be saved till they were ready to call me back. Derek offered to have me fly through Dallas and stay with him until I could get a flight out. I wasn’t able to do that so I was booked back on my original first leg of the flight with a later flight out in the morning. We’ll see if I get there as expected.

The folks from Dad 2.0 organized a couple of excursions for people who were staying on Sunday and I really should have gone. I wanted to go and take some photos but couldn’t get myself motivated enough to go. I don’t know if it was post conference blahs or the nerves about not being able to be home when Allison is sick and has been cooped up in the house since Wednesday. Whatever it was I hung out in my room till almost 2pm doing blog posts and such. When I finally got out of my room there were a few people returning from the trips. I worked out a ride share to the airport with Michael. Then I took a walk to look for something to eat. I walked back to the mall where we watched The LEGO Batman Movie. While I was there I had a super small cup of ice cream for $4. Then I went into the LEGO store. While I was there I had time to kill so I started making a cup full of LEGO bricks. I took a whole hour at it and got a ton of pieces. I don’t know exactly how many I got but we’ll see when we do the next One Cup challenge for Built from Bricks.

Then I walked back and hung out, had crazy good nachos with short rib meat and blue cheese. They were potato chips and totally fresh. I split those with Doug, the organizer of Dad 2.0. It was Doug, Michael and I sitting by a firepit and enjoying good conversation. Then Michael and I headed to the airport. I’m there now and awaiting my first leg of my trip home. There is no one here in the airport, too. It is crazy.

A Free Preview of Splatoon 2 on the Nintendo Switch – YES PLEASE!!

Splatoon 2

I think that Splatoon was one of the only games that my son could pick up immediately and play on the Nintendo Wii U. He took to the game so naturally and I hardly had to guide him in anything. Well, I took my meager work bonus and set aside money to pre-order a Nintendo Switch. I’m not sure about affording many games yet but one we will definitely be getting will be Splatoon 2. I’m excited for the Free Preview weekend that is coming so that we can play the game before we buy it. You can read all about it below. But first check out the preview of the game from the Switch presentation. It looks awesome!
