Jam-packed next few days. Next few weeks, even.

Today, work as normal. Preparing for some software changes which will take place over the next few weeks. Tonight, maybe some computer games. Or tv. Or the like. Waiting for a delivery of things to take to Pennsic.

Tomorrow and Sunday, Faire. (20-something years seems like a long time, doesn't it? My job at Faire can drink!) We have new lights, a new fan configuration (which gives us a lovely fresh breeze, but doesn't seem to cover the shop as well as the old configuration) and a new, wheeled shop counter which hasn't yet rolled away from us. Come visit, buy tights and dresses!

Laura comes home on Sunday. She's been in Canada for a few weeks looking after her dad, who has just been accepted into an assisted living facility. Her brother and nephew will help him move in over the next month or so and start dealing with whatever won't fit in the new place; one of the things that's moving this weekend is the bed she's been sleeping in. So, you see, she needs to come home. She's leaving tomorrow morning (Saturday), will overnight in Duluth/Superior (where the tall ships are), and should be home Sunday evening.

Jeff and Trudy (Ben's bio-dad and step-mom) are also coming to town, arriving Saturday night and departing on Monday. They are crashing at Ben's. I may or may not actually see them - we'll see how things work out.

Monday morning I'm stopping at the hospital on my way to work for a CT scan. An x-ray revealed a 1cm kidney stone, and they'd like to see what else is in there before the recommend a treatment. From my first bout with stones I learned that I have multiples, most of them small enough to not bother me *too* much, but from time to time I experience ... let's call it discomfort.

The following week, FYI, we're going to Pennsic. Or possibly just me. (When we last spoke about it, Soly hadn't decided yet - she might not be up for the trip, and I imagine it will also depend on weather forecasts and so on. But hopefully it'll be both of us.) I know many people who will be there for two weeks and we'll just be there for one; a number of people in our camp live close enough to drive down for a day or two, go home to work for a few days, and return. It's chaotic.

Let's see, what else. I need to make a new melee sword, which might mean rooting around for a new (old) basket hilt. I've been messing with new legs for my armor, though I think that will be put on hold until after Pennsic. (I don't trust the knees for melee.) I came up with a lovely plan for a new cat run on the porch, but haven't actually done anything with it yet. I need to patch the ground cloth for our pavilion - G sent me some sunforger with which to patch, I just need to *do* it. Through a combination of diet and exercise I've lost something like 35 pounds in the last six(ish) months, and I'm still making slow progress but I *still* don't go to the gym often enough. I've watched all of Stranger Things on Netflix but still haven't finished Jessica Jones.

Okay, right, I have stuff to do. End of line.
