I really do need to get back to Ireland some day. Preferably during one of the many gaming conventions, most preferably, during WARPCon. But not just for the fun and silliness of gaming and raising a glass with old friends. I really didn’t get to see much of the country last time because I was a student. We did do a bit of rambling, thank you Brian and Brian, but there is still more I want to see. England, too for that matter, I only saw a university campus when I was there last time. Some day. 🙂

On the idea of goals and dreams, I sent in my resume to WOTC for freelance editing, just in case they’re looking for any. They’re putting out a lot of material these days, I figured it was worth a shot. Especially as I now have experience in the field, unlike last time I applied, straight out of college.  I also put my name in the hat for a web design opportunity through a friend. We’ll see if anything comes of that. Excited about finding new opportunities, anyway.

Had a zag this past weekend celebrating with friends in Cleveland for the 25th anniversary of their ship. Trying to be good until April now. At least mostly good. Supplementing boredom with fruit, I’ve got bananas and cuties on the shelf now. Looking at a blender for smoothies, but I don’t have money for that right now.

One of the offices that my records show us owing money to, called us back and left a message to say they owed Us money instead and are sending us a check. I tried to call them back today, but after over an hour on hold I had to go to work. Maybe they’ll send a statement with the check. I don’t want to look a gift horse in the mouth, but I also don’t want to turn around and get bitten in the butt by it. Really want to get these debts taken care of, but must have a massive change in income to do that. We are working on that as best we can, though. Prayers, good thoughts and any contacts or leads would be appreciated. 😉

Had half a zag day for the Halloween party this past weekend in Cleveland. Lots of No Bake cookies, a few drinks, some bread and then Bacon Waffles and Bacon for breakfast. Mmmm bacon!  I’m feeling better about the whole thing. I’m sticking with it for the most part, but I’m not denying myself quite so much, or guilting myself for slips. I want to be as healthy as I can, but I also want to live my life happily. A little bread with my salad is okay, even if it’s not yeast-free or spelt. Some hot cider is not great for me, but it makes my throat feel so much better. Fruit and fresh juice is far healthier than chocolate or other candy or soda. I like vegetables and my tummy likes almond butter far better than peanuts. Need to work on some soup recipes(haven’t I said this before?) with the cold weather coming on. All in all, I’m feeling better about things.
