Still here

I read LJ nearly every day, but haven't been posting much. By the time I have the time in the day, I'm too tired to be coherent. So, for now, be content with this list, I beg you:
  • Pennsic was...not as horrible as I feared.
  • The North American Festival of Wales was...unexpectedly...revelatory? Lovely to spend time with two dear friends, or as one of them would say, "my mates," being all Welsh. The revelatory part was when my body pointed out, in no uncertain terms, that the maintenance of the public appearance of calm and strength (with the occasional venting in this forum not withstanding) when in fact I was, and am, living in a constant state of quite the opposite, has always had profound consequences. That on top of the meds I must take daily has left my stomach severely compromised, so, when I abused it rather dramatically that weekend, it rebeled. I'm in for a long haul of taking care of it. I can't do much about some of the sources of stress, but I can at least control what I put into it so that it doesn't have those things to deal with as well. God--I MISS COFFEE!!!!!!!
  • School has started up. Again I am blessed with some really lovely people, but they are so intellectually lazy I may very well lose it at some point and tell them off.
  • My boss continues to be wonderful. Actually, bosses. And we still don't have a contract. And the county really tried a bone-headed maneuver with the college's funding, but fortunately the State of New York sent a lovely attorney to explain to them in very small words, so they understood, that their plan was not tenable. Dodged that bullet, we did.
  • Hands have started to go west again.
  • Work computer and IT have managed to make me regret yet again that we don't still do everything with dip pens and chapbooks.
  • Three years. But then you all know that.
  • I enjoyed the last SCA events I've gone to so much that I may just stay! Thank you to everyone who made Summer's End and Harvest Raid such wonderful events for everyone.
  • Not reading as much as I'd like, or should. I need to remember the advice I've given others--read for pleasure 10-20 minutes each night before turning off the lights. Note to self: playing Sudoku on the Nook is not the same as reading. *sigh*
  • And with that, good night my friends.

Ditto on the reading but not writing much or replying to others' post (same reason: tired). Nor reading as much as want/should. Must be something in the turn of the year air.

I used to love to come here to read what people wrote and make a reply, but these days, if one can't hit a "like" button, . . . well . . .

Glad the last few months of SCA have been good ones for you. May the next three be even better.

I am glad you have had a good time at the last few events you attended. I am sorry I have not been around to help with that, I enjoy your company.
