Well a week from yesterday (Saturday) and I am not sure how much Internet I am going to get over there so this blog may go a little quiet over the next two weeks or so. But I hope to get some entries out there while doing other things.
And the summer got a little busier or it very well might. I may be going to San Diego with Peter this year. Nothing solid but we did the first thing, which is get me a badge so I can get into the place. We are still working on rest of the puzzle pieces that need to fall into place. Either way Caroline is going to have an adventure because she is going to see her sister Shana for a week or so. This will be her first plane ride by herself and she is looking forward to it. I know she’ll do fine because she had flown so many times that air travel is old hat to her.
Today I have to do things that I need to do but don’t want to do. One of the things that is not fun as an adult is being responsible and doing what needs to be done rather than what I want to do. But that ship sailed so many years ago and then got reinforced when I had a child which is a lot of responsibility but I think I am a better person for it. Peter and Caroline have a list of things they want to do with one and another today so Mommy is being given some quiet time to get done those things that she don’t wanna do but will do anyway.
DragonCon is shaping up to be a good year for me. I will have a number of friends I don’t have much of a chance to hang out with and probably not have much of a chance to hang out with but might at least see at the convention. I know that there are a couple of functions I want to get them into so they can enjoy the convention. Also I don’t believe they have been to various traditional meet-up places that are a lot of fun.
Mr. Sandusky is probably not going to see the light of day without prison bars and this is a good thing. The more I heard coming out of the trial, the more my stomach churned. I think one of the saddest part of all this is seeing how many enablers there were around him passively helping him to harm children. The saddest has to be what happened to those boys most of whom are men now and how much that affected the lives of these men. And I almost threw the radio across the room when I heard the testimony of one of Mr. Sandusky’s friends talking about horseplay in the locker room is just good-natured jackanapes. And we wonder where bullies come from…
I have been reading in small chunks “Rebel Buddha” by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche. I can only read it in small chunks because it makes me think a lot about what I am reading and at points I find myself a little overwhelmed. So far I am enjoying it and learning things about myself and the world that I hadn’t thought about before.
I am thinking of making a bear for DragonCon entitled “Nick Furry” with a Shield outfit to match. Thank Peter for that strange idea that has been stuck in my head.
Still grooving on Brave. Think it has taken the top spot for films this year which I thought was going to be really hard considering how much I loved the Avengers. Caroline is grooving on Brave as well. Oh saw the Hobbit Trailer before Brave, can’t wait for that.
We seem to be returning to more reasonable temperatures at this time. The last couple of days have been pretty miserable. Tropical Storm Debbie can’t make up its mind apparently. All I do know is that it is going to be wet at Disney World today.
Well I better not put what I need to do off any further or it is going to be miserable and HOT to get those things that need to be done outside done. Have a great day y’all.
I am grateful that I have so many opportunities to do cool things this summer.
