The good news: My sister's school did not go on strike.  They just signed a five year contract.

The bad news: My friend Mike's father passed away and we're going to attend the service next Saturday, so no game tournament this year.  Until recently we've not gotten to see Mike and his family very often, but they been joining us for brunch recently when they can.  His father has been sick for a while now, so it wasn't a surprise, but that doesn't lessen the loss. 

The mixed news: Half my job is finally picking up again - I've got billable hours!  The other half is slowing down - to the point where they will probably be letting go the new software guy (who they just hired a few months ago).

But before that )

The new software person started yesterday.  Nice guy, seems to know his stuff, but we seem to have trouble communicating (lots of corrections and misunderstandings).  I suspect it will take a bit of time for us both to figure out what works best. 

Got home and was paying the bills when *pop* out drops one of my fillings.  So now I've got a big gapping hole in one of my teeth.  We'd been in the process of switching dentists so I had to speed that along and got an appointment for Thursday before shire meeting.

Went to fencing for the first time in months - I'm very out of practice (not that I was that good before) and still very out of shape.  Need to keep going to the gym.  I've been able to make it at least three times a week so far, but Pennsic will stop that for a bit.  Our marshal gave [livejournal.com profile] violet_amy and I some fencing homework for Pennsic - namely to fight some pick up bouts during the week.  With my current schedule, I don't see it happening but I'll bring my stuff along anyway.  I'm going to leave my archery stuff at home - I'm so out of practice there that it's not worth it.

For the rest of the week )

Monday's seem like a good time to revisit the week before and think about the week ahead.

Hmm, last one of these was over a week ago - let's see how well I can recall two weekends worth of stuff.

What's been happening )

In the coming week I've got more EK History stuff, Period Gaming and running a games table at an event in Buckland Cross.

I need to get one of these for my car.  Although I'm more likely to make my own, since I don't like the font or the apple they use.

I'm sure I spent the week doing something, but I'm having a hard time recalling exactly what...  Time to check my notes.

Notes )

Today I made two new user icons from my license plate(s).  The other is even more obnoxious then this one (think <blink>), so I don't know if I'll ever get use it (but I uploaded it anyway).  I've had this plate for years and only occasionally have I gotten a reaction from somebody - but I've never gotten a parking or speeding ticket :)

Tonight  I need to rack the wine cooler as soon as I get home and then we may or may not try and go see Van Helsing.
