me and my vulture

Good times, but busy.

Busy, busy, busy.  When am I ever not?

I'm writing for work, so writing here is, unfortunately, taking second place.  I have had a hundred subjects roaming through my head, and no energy to write about them. 

See?  Now I'm just teasing y'all with the prospect of actual content.  It's coming, I promise.

This weekend, I'm going to be helping sell stuff for Gardiner's Company at Night on the Town - I've been throwing boxes of stuff together, and have about six boxes of various used and new items for sale at bargain prices, plus a couple of very special, unique necklaces I've made specially to raise money for Gardiner's.  We're renting some heavy equipment to landscape part of our land into a fighting area (with berm for fighting behind/over - fun!), and there's the costs for Pennsic.

This Pennsic is the 20th anniversary of Gardiner's Company - I'm thinking big party.  Bob and I are throwing entertainment ideas back and forth.  In that vein, if you're going to be at Pennsic, and you've ever been interested, part of, or a member of Gardiner's, we want y'all to stop by and say hello.  I'll post updates on party plans and such as Pennsic gets closer.  Everyone is invited.

I can't believe it's been 20 years.  Similarly, Sunday is Bob n' me's 16th anniversary of moving in together, and it seems like yesterday and/or a lifetime, depending on how I'm looking at it.  Yesterday in that being with him is as fresh and exciting as ever, and a lifetime in that my life changed so completely when I met him that everything that came before seems like it happened to a different person.

A less happy person.

I'm a natural optimist, but a lot of that got suppressed by depression, anger and bitterness, and Bob brought it out in me again.  Everything we do together just has a way of always working out to our best advantage.  We are each others' good luck charm.  Can't ask for much more than that, eh?

Love you, baby.
