This is just a short and sweet post before I *crackles knuckles* get to tappin' out tomorrow's RP post.  I'm hoping everyone had a good weekend and a good Mother's Day to those of you who are mothers.  This past week has been very exhausting for me and it feels like it has caught up with me today.

The first half of last week was very busy at work with accreditation stuff going on.  For any of you that have gone through that, you know how hectic that can be! For those of you who haven't… just think of doing 2 years worth of paperwork prep (writing and rewriting policies and procedures, handbooks, training staff etc) to finally the moment of the “real exam” of peer reviewers coming to scope the place out and essentially quiz staff and clients.  And file audits.

Although that was all over with by Wednesday, it was like I didn't really get a chance to breath at all last week while at work.  I was somewhat on edge all week and antsy.  So very antsy.  Plus, the weather has gotten to be more consistently gorgeous outside.

Over the weekend, Sideshow and I went out of town to visit my parents.  We made the 3ish hour drive right after work on Friday and came home Sunday evening.  This would be why there was nothing new on Saturday.  I'd gotten the screenshot for Sunday queue'ed up previously, but I didn't have a chance to prepare something for Saturday.  So, it's sorta felt like I've been nothing but “on the go” for the past week.

Today, I'm tired.  Very tired.  There's so much I want to do and write, but it shall all come in time.  I almost wasn't going to post anything today, but just wanted to give a “hey” to everyone.  So, I might need a bit of time this week to recoup… meaning… I can't guarantee any epic posts this week. 😉

Oh, and for those of you that have seen me tweet on Twitter about drawing… yep, I've been getting back into some drawing.  And… I can safely say that Syrana no longer looks like an alien!  But, I still need more practice and whatnot before I can draw us a new banner.

Oh! And I checked the site's stats yesterday…. we've surpassed the 5,000 hits mark and I didn't even realize it!

We are a family of gamers. Mom (Darcy/Syrana) and Dad (Brian/Sideshow) have been gaming for as long as they can remember back when you only had a joystick to use and saved your games to cassette tapes.

They've been gaming together since they met in 2002. Sometime after 2006, they both started playing World of Warcraft and did that for many years. They started this blog, originally called Sideshow & Syrana which has now transitioned to the new Stay-At-Home Gamers site, while keeping all of the original content.

Starting in 2010, two more gamers came along (now known as Princess Boo and Mr. X) and they are now old enough where they both enjoy playing games and watching others play games. They are both excited to have others to watch them play their favorite games. Come along with us and let's enjoy these games together!
