Not much to report this week. I did get to start on the “library” at the school. Is it a library if there are no bookcases? We’ll see. I organized books into categories and started contact-papering, lending carding and cataloging books this week. There’s a lot to do, I feel like I need a bit of Order of Importance to guide me next week. But well, they don’t really know what to do either.

Went to the doc. We both agreed I should take care of myself more consciously. So there’s that. Feeling pretty good this week, so that’s a start. Fought off the throat ick that everyone around me has. Even if it did take wheatgrass juice to do it. I hear my Dad’s doing well with his stuff, so that’s great. 🙂 Really have to get to the Chiro and give them checks. Our insurance thinks it’s fun to send us the money instead of them.

Money wise, things are looking up. Should be able to start winnowing down the medical bills this month. Get another one gone by end of next month, I think. One of them hasn’t sent us a bill in a while, but when I called them, they said they would be soon. We’ll see. Still gonna take a while, but we’ll be making deeper cuts into it starting this month.

Halloween is fast approaching, still no costume(s). Ah well. 😉

Another Game? May 19, 2011

As if my life isn’t busy enough, I’m considering joining a LARP on Sunday nights. (Live Action Role Play for my less geeky readers.) Am I insane? Or just missing the variety of games I played in college?  D&D is tons of fun on Tuesday night, and lately we’ve been running all around the editions. 2nd one week, 4th the next and 3rd the next. It’s been a great time remembering the old, trying the new and planning for the future. But there are so many other games out there. I miss being a Gangrel. But the LARP is Every week. I’ve only been in one LARP before, in Ireland, and it was once a month. But it could be a great time with Rich and Amy and R2 and whoever else I end up meeting there. And I really do miss my Gangrels. And I might even do more writing if I start playing one, just to keep track of what’s happening in game.

MarCon next weekend. I’m working on a toga for Friday night. There will be pictures if I manage it. Last MarCon on Memorial Day weekend for at least three years. It’s going to be a huge blow out of crazy fun. Very excited.

Spent last weekend relaxing and deciding on an apartment to apply to. Further from work, but closer to friends. Bigger and with a more bookcase-friendly layout, for $150/month less than we pay now. Plus basement storage space. Looking to move the last weekend in June.

Rich actually got paid for untaken vacation and such, so that was a nice surprise for this month’s budget. June will be nice, and July even better once we get things balanced with his new job. I’ve written one new story, and have ideas for three more. The muse seems to have come back. We’ll see how long she stays this time.
