Here the house has been a beehive of activity. Ragnarok is coming upon us!! Well not literally the end of the world's the major, national gathering for those of us who are in Dagorhir. It's medieval combat, with a fantasy base. Yes I am that much of a geek :)

Anyhoo Ragnarok this year is the 21st to the 28th in Cambridge, OH. We will leave the house around midnight Saturday to make the 8-10 hr drive. My friend is staying at my house for a week to take care of the animals, normally I'd just have someone come in once a day to check in but cant do that now that we have the Tater-pup.

I love going to Rag but the week before there's always soo much to do. 11th hour projects abound. I am guilty myself. I have made 1 skirt, 1 mens tunic and I need to make a half chemise and finish up another skirt.. I also had to dye a few pieces. Bill is working on belt favors for our unit. Him and a friend have been working on a pavillion for our camp. The roommate is trying to get packed and find all her garb. We are trying to co-ordinate caravans. Yeah pretty busy.

Outside of the house the weather has been crap for humans but great for some plants. It has been tooooooo hot, in the upper 90s, very humid (when its not storming) and I got sick trying to "suck it up" out there. The garden is a mess :(

I went to help a friend clean up her place after I got off of work today. 3 hours later my friend is feeling a hell of a lot saner but my feet hurt and Im kicking myself. Considering the last time I had a day off was the 3rd it was just not a good idea. I cannot wait until Tuesday so I can sleep in (hopefully) Tuesday and Wednesday are UberBusy. I have a lot of stuff to do here to get us ready for our vacation. Among them is making a new skirt and a new chemise blouse or two if I can swing it. And I have to dye a skirt and top.

They are starting a standby list for OT at work starting this weekend. This is a good thing. I should be getting my days off switched soon to Friday and Saturday which is a most awesome thing. One week and one day til our 1st wedding anniversary. One week and 2 days until vacation. Im very blessed and content. The bed is callin me now.

Hard week

So this week I have had to do mandatory overtime. We are only required to do 4 hours..Im clocking almost 20. It will cover me going to Ragnarok in Cambridge, Ohio for a week. We look forward to this all year. I feel like I could drop though. My throat hurts a bit from so much talking. I need sleep and I've lucked out that its been rained a bit making the garden a little inaccessible. It seems to be coming along from what I can tell.. I finally found my battery charger so I will get pics soon.

On a different note, my middle stepson has been staying with us this last week. He has mentioned staying with us for the summer. I have a sneaking suspicion that he might want to live here permanently. He's 9 though and I think kids in Illinois cant actively pick until they are 12.
