The internet finally got connected last last Friday night. Yesterday, I received delivery of a brand new fridge. Today, the exterminators came through again. So, now, the apartment is almost complete. I still have to push everything back against the walls, repopulate the closets, bathroom and cabinets. I still have to unpack the kitchen, unload the food from the car and fill in the fridge. But I’m nearly there.

School starts in less than a month, first textbook is on its way. Can’t wait to get started. Working long hours at the store, learning new things, trying new modes of operation. Still taking apps and interviewing if you are looking for a job.

This weekend looks to hold lots of sleeping, if I get everything back together before the weekend starts. But there are also lots of opportunities to hang out with friends. There’s a board/card gaming weekend hosted by a couple friends. There’s the Dublin Irish Festival. And I’m going down to Cinci for lunch with Nancy on Sunday.  It could be another busy weekend, or it could just be a nice lunch and lots of relaxing.

This past weekend was my calm weekend, before all the family trips and conventions. But I still had a lot of fun. Friday evening I went to an animal shelter to meet Ralphie, a very sweet rottweiler mix, that is now being fostered by some very good friends. Then we went to the Dublin Irish Festival, to window shop, listen to music and eat faire food. I had a bread bowl of beef stew and saw some really nice dresses and skirts, and lots of good wood carving. Saturday was spent watching the first four Harry Potter movies and eating lots of tasty food. From Pancakes and bacon to kettle corn, to guacamole to grilled hotdogs and hamburgers. A great time was had by all.

Sunday and most of Monday, I spent editing the new Races book for The Legacy of Heroes. I’m very much looking forward to playing my new Brownie archer on Tuesday. There are all sorts of new options, in race, bloodlines, setup, stances and magic items.

Also spent Monday getting my car ready for the trip to Maine. Oil change and new front brake pads. All set and ready to go. One more week and we’ll be on our way. But first, the girls’ party this Sunday. Happy Birthday, kiddos!
