Dept. of Wiscon

Coming Back to Earth

I had a wonderful, intense day; a late sleep-in, some reading, an hour and a half of volunteering in the consuite, an afternoon of panel and workshop on class issues (yeah, I get excited about this sort of thing), and a fantastic evening at the Guest of Honor dessert salon and Tiptree Award ceremony. I bought a couple of books, had some great conversations with [personal profile] ljgeoff and [personal profile] a_phoenixdragon ... and then I got a computer call from my First Born. He did the thing he needed to do with The Crazy Ex, things went just as well as could be expected, and BB and I will be getting him a bus ticket from Evansville on Tuesday, using up the last of our special money before I had a chance to get something for Bob. FB will be back on our couch for the next little while.

I'm extremely proud of him for reasons; I may be able to provide further explanation, or I may not, but I'm proud.

But on a weekend where I was working to add a few more spoons to my collection, I've just had to give away two or three spoons instead. C'est la vie, c'est la fucking vie.

Still ... good weekend. Good weekend. That's what I'll focus on. Right?

And I'm going home to Bob. That's extremely, very, wonderfully good.

That's some thud, all right.

May the good weekend, may the nourishment of WisCon, help see you through the times ahead. And may your pride in your FB do so, too.

Thanks, my dear. I'm going to take a lot from this convention, and part of that will be some extra energy. FB is always a source of alarm and pride; this time pride is in the ascendant. Heh.

It was indeed lovely. And real life has a tendency to do that, doesn't it?

I am sorry about your thud. Here's to you acquiring many more spoons in the future to help take the sting out of this event.

Thank you; he'll be home tomorrow, and will start the next phase of his life.

I think you handled that 'thud' beautifully, bb. And those spoons...well, hopefully you'll find some in a back drawer, just when you need them most.

*hugs you hard*

I may have found a teaspoon, or at least a swizzle stick, my dear. And I'm rooting for you to find a certain little furry delinquent.

*hugs back*
