Anam Cara is off in Scotland having, what I can only imagine to be a grand time! This is me being jealous. Someday I'll get over there. One day we hope to go to Ireland together in search of faeries. I'm meant to get over to the British Isles and surrounding islands, but so far have not been allowed.
The first time was the most difficult to accept. It was my Junior year of high school and only a handful of us (students) and, I think, two teachers were set to go. I'd pretty much paid for the entirety of my trip. Then, it happened. The "9-11 attacks." One by one, parents pulled their children from the trip. Mine told me that if I still wanted to go and the trip was still on, they would let me. I think they knew that the trip wuldn't go through as planned. Luckily, I received a full refund. Since then, every attempt has been thwarted.
I wonder, though, if I should forego the Anime Boston trip and save what little money would be spent for a trip to the UK instead? The lands of mist call to me in sleep and waking dreams. The Fae have been waiting for so long. But I don't know. These are the decisions, it seems to me, that make your future. Personal history can be changed forever by choosing one path or the other. I've got until Ostara weekend to really decide, but if we want to book a hotel room for the convention, I need to decide by the end of December. We'll see, I guess.
Not much else is really new. I get to sleep in tomorrow and Monday. I have Thanksgiving Day off and get to hang out with the mojority of the most important people in my life! (Oldest Sis and her hubby won't be joining us as it is their wedding anniversary.) Then I begin my new schedule, of which one of my workdays will be set aside to sell Christmas trees all day long! Woot! I'll be coming home smelling like pine from next Saturday until the 24th! *^_^* My newest mermaid had a little work done last night, and I intend to get some coloring onto my other boys and girls either tomorrow or Monday. Two of my coworkers are leaving for home on December 1st. Sadly, we don't think they'll be back next year. They're both dears to work with and are damn good at what they do (which is EVERYTHING!) The farm will never be the same without them. *U_U* So it'll be me and five other people working the farm (not including the bosses and their sons) from the 1st until the Spring. So quiet in the Winter.
I suppose that's all for now. No revelations. Not too much in the way of magic...
For now. *~_^*
