Video game minute.

 So over the weekend, I got to play some Red Dead Redemption and I played a level of The Legend Of Zelda A Link Between Worlds. Side note, I think I have been putting to the past instead of between worlds. I haven't touched past in a long time, I probably even forgot where I'm at cause it's been so long. I'm getting through a couple missions at a time for Red Dead. The problem is, sometimes the missions are really long and after them, I look for all the loot that's dropped. I'm glad there's fast travel though. I'm still upset that my old game save is essentially gone. On between worlds, I was playing Heras Tower and our internet dropped. I use a walk through when I get stuck, but I did the whole level by myself. That was amazing and it felt good. Of course after I finished the tower, our internet came back up. On Monday, Melissa went to the Comcast store and we finally got the ac router instead of the n router. There's finally a noticeable difference in the wifi at our house. We were getting 22 megabytes over wifi and yes I know some people are like holy shit, but sometimes that's just not good enough. So now it's about 44 megabytes, so that's good now, but I want to get a wifi extender because I know it would help. The desktop computer is doing better too. That's what I got for now, till next time.

Weekend review for 7/23 - 24/16.

 Friday, we watched some shows and had some dinner. We went upstairs and watched some more shows and then went to bed.

 Saturday, we got up and it was time for us to tackle our yard projects we hadn't in awhile. We had some breakfast and headed out. We went over to Melissa's friends house to pick up some t shirts to sell for them. After her house, we went to Home Depot to pick up some bark, rock edgers and some garden bricks. Now writing it out like that, it seems like no problem. Each bag of bark had to be at least 50 pounds, each garden brick has to be like 5 pounds. We got 10 bags of bark, 19 bricks and 24 edgers. The truck was definitely sagging when we were done loading it. We left there and headed to McDonald's for lunch and went home. We had our lunch and then it was time to unload the truck.

I don't know how many times I actually touched each bag or rock, but damn. Melissa started on the first tree and she was covered in ants. They came out of nowhere.

 She was getting bit and everything. When she was done, it looked amazing.

 Now I know our grass looks like shit, but the trees and places we put the bark look really good. We finally finished after I don't know even know how many hours and we were both exhausted. We got to relax and we watched some shows. For dinner we had some sandwiches and relaxed some more. We headed upstairs and we watched some more shows and went to bed. 

 Sunday, we woke up and had breakfast and it was time to start the regular Sunday stuff. I mowed the lawn and vacuumed. We had some lunch then we started working on the backyard. I measured it out and it should have been 17 bricks long and 2 bricks deep. So we ended up taking more grass away so it was actually 3 bricks deep including the edge of the outer one. So now we start laying out the other side and of course now we're short one brick right? Nope, now we're off by two? How does that work? So we measured like four times and we came up with two would fit at the end. Cut to Monday, yup they don't fit at all. What the fuck, I hate shit like that. So after all that shit we went inside and watched some shows. We made an amazing dinner and we went to bed. I hope you had a good weekend, till next time.

Video game minute.

 So over the weekend, I downloaded Pokemon go to see what is all about. So I never went out an walked, I just sat around and caught a few. I started working on trying to build them up and evolve them. No remember, this is the first Pokemon game I have ever played and I don't know what all to do. So the little information I got, I feel like it's working out okay. I got a couple rats, worms and birds. I upgraded the rat and the work. Now it's hard trying to catch those ones to get more stuff to upgrade them more. I was mad cause I upgraded a bird then I caught one that was higher then mine, what the hell? So I finally got to a stop thing and I was hoping for more balls, but that didn't happen, I got three balls. Mine keeps not wanting to connect and mine freaked out when I caught something and it disappeared, damn. I know it's a new game, but damn. 

 I have been playing more Red Dead and I'm having fun. I even got an hour in last night. I'm still not very far, but I'm making good progress. I'm still mad about losing all my other game progress. I am still waiting for 7 Days To Die to be at Redbox. I found another game that looks pretty cool it's called Recore for the Xbox One. It's supposed to have ever changing environments due to the changing weather and sand storms. I think it's definitely a rent and maybe a buy. All this boils down to a lot of new games coming out for a lot of time consumption. Well that's what I got for now, till next time.

Weekend review for 7/16 - 17/16.

 Friday night, Melissa and I made chicken Cesar salad for dinner. It was so good, I actually want more salad now. After that, we both got some game time in. I played some Red Dead and Melissa played some Animal Crossing on the ds. After that we went upstairs and went to bed. 

 Saturday, we woke up and had a quick breakfast and we worked on the truck for a little bit then went to a carwash. We vaccumed out the truck and got it looking good. After all that, we headed out to Target and found some house stuff we have been looking for. I got a new Fitbit and I am so excited for. I got the Alta, after seeing Melissa's I knew that's the one I wanted. After Target we headed to Outback for lunch. We got there and the place looked really good. We got inside and we noticed that they didn't have the cool menu they were showing on commercials. So we asked about it and they said it's because they didn't want to overwhelm the new cooks. Weird, so we ordered other stuff and the food was good, but we both were kinda like disappointed. After Outback, we went to Fred Meyer to find some vitamins we were out of. They didn't have what we were looking for so we left. We headed home and we set up our new organizers we picked up. So I broke down and tried the new Pokemon go app. I tried it for a little bit and I could see how people would want to play for a long time. My main thing is, it uses so much data and battery. After a little bit, we made our leftovers for dinner and watched some shows. We headed upstairs and we watched a few episodes of The Walking Dead and went to bed. 

 Sunday, we woke up and had some breeds st and started our house chores. I started mowing the lawn and Melissa worked in the yard raking up some moss we had. Exciting I know, after all of that we relaxed and watched some shows.  We made a new dinner for us. We made our homemade moons over my hammy. It was not very healthy, but it was mighty tasty. After dinner we watched some more shows and had our delicious dessert, it was a Girl Scout cookie cake type thing. It was damn good too. I went over, but it was okay. That's what I got for now, I hope you had a good weekend. Till next time.

Video game minute.

 So I haven't written a minute in a minute, ha ha. But seriously, I haven't been playing a lot of games or have had anything to talk about. That has all changed now that Red Dead Redemption is now backwards compatible on the Xbox One. So I read that and I was eagerly waiting for the weekend to try it. I fire up the Xbox and pop in my disc and it says install, I go to install and it says this game is not playable. I'm like what the fuck, really! I try it again and again same thing. I try to read on line and everyone's like this is the best thing ever. I turn off my Xbox and restart it, nothing, same thing. I wonder if it's my gold experied or something and nope. I take the disc out, restart the Xbox and pop in the disc, finally it works. This is the second time this has happened. I have my Xbox set to do updates by itself so I don't understand what the problem is. This happened with Portal 2 as well. At least it worked. So the only other bad thing is, my game save isn't there, so I have to start over from scratch. That's okay though so I can relearn the game and not have to worry about one hundred percent in the game. 

 10 games for summer seems to be a dead thing with me. I do not have time to give all these games. I want to focus on Red Dead and maybe rent 7 Days To Die when it comes out on Redbox. In other gaming news, Nintendo is releasing a mini classic Nintendo system in November. It is $60 and it has 40 preloaded games on it. It is styled exactly like the classic Nintendo everyone knows and loves. It has hdmi out and the controller ports are the same ones for the Wii and Wii U nun chucks and classic controllers. They say that you can plug one of these new controller into a Wii U and play virtual console games with it. The only thing that seems to be up the air right now is the ac adapter. Some sites say it's USB and some say it's ac adapter and some said there's no ac adapter included. Obviously they will tell what it comes with very soon, but as of Thursday there's no definite answer. There is also no preorder available on Amazon for it yet. I think I want to preorder it or go the morning of and get it. Melissa is even on board with it. I also found a new Raspberry Pi OS, it's called Recalbox and it has emulation station on it but not Retropie front end. I have to do some more research on it. That's what I got for now, till next time.

Weekend review for 7/9 - 10/16.

 So on Friday night, it was Foreigner concert time!! We headed up to the Tulalip Resort Casino and we had dinner at the Cedars Creek restaurant. I had the turkey club sandwich and holy shit was it good! Melissa had the fish and chips and she loved hers.

 It was a cheat day, but I didn't eat all my fries or all of my bread so it kind of evened out. After dinner, we headed towards the concert area. We were searched and carded and we headed in. Tulalip does a lot of giveaways for card members so we got our tote bag, we bought some water and found our seat. They gave us a seating chart and at first I was like uh oh, but Goddamn, these were amazing seats. We sat down and waited for the show to start. After the tribe did their song, they had a singer perform. Then it was time for Foreigner. I took so many videos and pictures my phone actually ran out of space. That's a damn fail, why does apple still make 16 gig iPhones, but then jump up to 64 gigs? Why don't they start at 32 for the base model? It's actually really annoying. So I took so many videos I can't post them all, but it was amazing. At one point the singer got down off of the stage and walked in the crowd. He started walking towards our row and actually walked across our chairs.

 That was so cool. After the amazing show we went home and went to bed. 

 Saturday, we woke up and had some breakfast. After that, we headed out to get some gas, we went to the farmers market, Junk In The Trunk and then we went to Winco. I scored a really good condition Pink Floyd Darkside Of The Moon record. Melissa did say I should take a picture of the record, but I was too busy playing Read Dead Redemption on the Xbox One, my bad. I also found an air pump for all the many blow up toys we have now for our niece. Melissa got some fresh cut flowers and we were done. I won't bore you with grocery shopping, we went to Taco Bell for lunch, we got home unloaded the truck and ate lunch. After lunch I was like what should I do? Should I play some games? Why yes, yes I should. So after rebooting and reinstalling Red Dead, it finally installed and I was off and playing. This is the second time that I have had this much trouble installing a backwards compatible game on the One. We watched some shows and relaxed. We had leftovers for dinner and we watched more shows. We went upstairs and we watched The Walking Dead episode one. Then we watched Orange Is The New Black and we went to bed. 

 Sunday, we woke up and had breakfast and then started house stuff. After the house stuff, I mowed the lawn, then it was time to make some breakfast sandwiches. So I thought I was being smart and I put aluminum foil under the cooker so it wouldn't be as messy, but for whatever reason, the cooker burnt out in the middle off cooking a sandwich. I had to run up to the state and buy a new one, damn. That's a shitty day right there. After the sandwiches, I got the vegetables ready for the week for our lunches and for dinner. We started making dinner. After dinner we watched some shows and went to bed. I hope you had a good weekend, till next time.

Weekend review for 7/2, 3 - 4/16.

 Three day weekend has come to a conclusion. Friday I got to leave work from a closer location so I wasn't stuck in holiday travel traffic. Friday night we watched some shows and we went to bed. 

 Saturday, we woke up and had some breakfast. After that, we got Melissa's car ready for an oil change and emissions. Her car has been sitting for awhile now. I hooked up the battery and it started right up. We moved the other car out of the way and we were on our way. We got to the oil change and we had forgotten the coupon for it and the emissions paper. Damn, what a way to start the day, anyways we got the car done and the guy hooked us up with a discount. After that, we headed to emissions. I have been stressed out so bad over it passing or not. So her check engine light came on a few months ago. We checked the code and it was for the coolant sensor. Okay, fine, we got the part and it was time for me to do it. Got my tools out and I didn't have the correct socket. So I now had to drive the car I was working on that needed to be cold, awesome. I got the socket and now I had to let it cool down. I finally got to work on it. I dropped the tools, I dropped the socket. I thought I had to take the lower engine cover off, al of this. Finally got the old sensor out and more fluid poured out then I thought would have. Got the new one in and the check engine light never went off, damn! So now it's  Google time, we found you have to in hook the battery, okay, I did, no good, still on. I had to unhook it again and let it sit longer. Well it worked and the light went out. After the oil change we went to the emissions test and after a little bit, it passed. I was so relieved and the stress went away. Now it was time for lunch. We went to Ajs Burgers and it was amazing. We got home ate some lunch and watched some shows. Later, we streamed some movies and went to bed. 

 Sunday, we woke up and it was time to start some house work. I mowed the lawn and power edged. My Fitbit said that I was active for 76 minutes. Holy shit that's a long time. After working my ass off, I got to order Batman bs Superman cause we had a Barnes And Noble credit. That was sweet and I got a Dobby Funko pop. So 4 bucks for a pop and a movie, hell yeah. I was trying to fix one of our garage door openers and that was a no go, it was legit broken. I had to order a new one from Amazon. I got to move my game saves and ROMs from my Nook to a jump drive for my Ouya. I finally got to install my Bluetooth adapter on the laptop and try the Wii U pro controller and it didn't work. I have no clue what that's about, but whatever. I tried the pro controller on my Nook and it worked awesome. We watched some shows and then we made dinner. It was amazing, we made pulled bbq chicken burgers with corn on the cob and salad. Oh my god was it so good, we are definite making that again. It was only 1000 calories which is what I'm shooting for at dinner and lunches. We went upstairs, watched some more shows and went to bed. 

 Monday was the fourth so we went to Walmart and grabbed some stuff then we went to see The Purge 3. It was really good. 1 and 2 were more detailed and a little better, but 3 held its own. I am definitely going to buy it when it comes out. After the movie we headed to our friends house for their party. I told Melissa that this was my chest day and I was going to eat whatever I wanted and how much I wanted and she was like go for it. I had three burgers, three small pieces of cake and a cookie. I was so full and I didn't eat all of that in the same sitting, but man was I full. We hung out and it was nice relaxing. We didn't even have dinner cause we were both still so full. We got home and it was time for bed. I hope you had a good weekend. Till next time.
