Slept in a little bit, then got up and grabbed my latte while the computer booted. Tried to get parked on SL, but my computer was giving me a hard time due to some updates.

Ended up not really doing much because of the updates, which was fine since there wasn’t a whole lot of time before we had to leave anyway.

We had to be downtown at 9 for parade preparation. I was excited that Casey had this opportunity. We got there 5 minutes early, but nobody else arrived until 20 minutes later.

Casey started getting whiny and fussy, and I kept threatening to take stuff away to try and get him to stop. He must not have slept well the night before, was my only guess.

Finally it was time to head out. I tried to walk behind the float, but it was moving much faster than I expected. I was able to hop on it before we got onto the main street, thankfully.

I kept looking around for Dave, but there was no sign of him. I was starting to get pretty pissed. I even texted to my mom that I hadn’t seen him anywhere and didn’t think he’d made it because of being at his girlfriend’s all night. Her response was that we shouldn’t be seeing other people because we are still married. I ignored that because it’s not an argument I care to get into with her again.

I finally heard from Dave at the end of the parade that he’d only just woken up. I was pissed. I couldn’t believe that he’d miss such a huge opportunity for Casey to participate in the annual 4th of July Parade.

After the parade was over, we headed back home. I got Casey some lunch and then a bath so he’d be clean and fresh for that night. He’d be going with Dave to spend the afternoon and evening with Dave’s girlfriend and her daughters.

Dave finally got home, and got himself some lunch. Casey was just watching stuff on the TV downstairs. After Dave was done eating, they got packed up to go, with Dave talking about probably staying overnight. I kinda didn’t want Casey to be spending the night there, but at the same time it wouldn’t be fair because I’d have Casey with me at Daniel’s in a heartbeat.

They headed out and I got on a call with Colin, and he got on Conan with me in the co-op to check it out. The tether distance, even at maximum, wasn’t as far as we would like, but still a reasonable distance. He was able to get about a full map square away, which isn’t bad at all. We played there for the rest of the evening, until he was finally too tired to stay up.

I’d heard from Cyn a bit. She tried getting on Blade & Soul but said it was too laggy to do anything at all. Her internet would be fine, but idk about the rest of her $90 computer. I mentioned that I missed playing it with her, and she kinda went off on me that we never really did anything together on it and it wasn’t fun for her. I pointed out that I was playing on my solo character anyway, and also said that, to me, we don’t have to be doing everything “together” to still play together. I guess she didn’t see it that way. Later on, though, she said she’d get a new graphics card for her computer to see if she could play then.

I also talked to Daniel, around the same time. Somehow the topic of this weekend came up, and he said he was still going to try but it would just depend if he had to work Saturday or not. I said we could always just go for Sunday, that we didn’t have to stay over Saturday night, but that we’ll just see how it works out. I really hope I get to see him.

After Colin and I had gotten off the call, I got on Aura Kingdom for a little while, but then I ended up getting ready for bed myself. It was after midnight anyway. As I was starting to fall asleep, I heard the garage door open and Casey run down the hall to his bedroom. I was pleasantly surprised they were home.
