Pennsic rush

Well, Pennsic is just around the corner and I've gone into mad sewing overdrive. My plans are to crank out 2 chemise tops and at least 1, hopefully 2 front lacing bodices. I think I should be able to do this and have time to relax. It's all pretty easy sewing. I hate cutting fabric the most because I have to sit on the floor to do it. It is hell on my back doing it on the floor, but *shrug* it could be worse.

Rykujin is still leaving on the 27th. He had his SSD/SSI hearing on Wednesday and it was fully favorable. They're going to 'diary' him for a year and follow his progress at JobCorp. It was a huge weight off his mind.

On the down side, Jewels' (of the C&J faction) mother passed away last week. My heart goes out to her. I was sad to hear of K's passing. A feisty woman who will be missed...

Over all, I'm doing ok. Ups and downs, the usual. Went to the SCA meeting last night. It was interesting. I was hot, so had problems spinning. My hands were so sweaty that the wool was sticking to them. ick. I realized today that the PFA expires. I'm feeling mixed about it. So much time has passed. The good and the bad are a jumble in my head. I don't think I'm afraid anymore, just sad. very sad...

Hope everyone is doing well.
hugs and love
