WoW Wednesday: Whither WoW

I think I played WoW over the weekend.  But otherwise, not.  Often, I play in that dead hour from 4-5 when the kids are home and being noisy and demanding, so that I can’t focus on real work, and it’s not quite time to start putting dinner on the table.  This week, however, I’ve been doing “just one more thing” in preparation for something that’s coming up later this week.  And, I know, I’m being all mysterious about it, but I don’t want to jinx it.  You’ll hear all about it later, I promise.

So, WoW has been on the back burner.  I’ve been thinking about it.  I’ve been reading things here and there about new content coming out in the next expansion.  But no actual playing.  And actually, that might be a bad thing.  WoW, and game playing generally, has always been about distraction, destressing in a way that’s fun, but still challenging.  WoW is much less mindless than Facebook games and tv, so that my mind is still engaged just in a different way.  Still, I think it’s also possible that I needed even more of a break and thus did not turn to WoW.  Instead, I’ve gone on walks and vegged in front of the tv, passing out by 10 p.m.  Man, I feel old.

I’ll get back in the groove, once all the hoopla is past.
