Because that's a good place to start.

This weekend was Her Stellar Majesty Queen Amelot Lisette de Blamont's Queen's Champion and Guardian of the Queen's Hope Tournaments.  The Stronghold of Hellsgate hosted the event and evidently, we did well.

The event was held on Camp Mabry, in the camping area and the site was declared a winner by just about all and sundry.  There was a charity race being held on post the same morning, so we had a bit of a SNAFU with the traffic situation and road closure, but overall?  It went really well.  The gate guards were polite, professional and got our folks through the gate with little to no hassle. 

I did the site tokens, and they were pretty well received I think.  Basically, I copied a page from a German fencing manual, then copied that painting with some quotes, to make bookmarks.  The originals were framed for HRM, as her site token.

I also ended up with waterbearing, not that I minded.  It just kinda slipped Liam's mind, and so I grabbed it.  Sara and Ghilean helped like crazy, though, so I appreciated them manning the table when I couldn't or was off being a social butterfly.

Overall?  OMG great event.  Exhausting, but fun, and everyeone seemed to have a good time.  I also made the Queen cry, first thing in the morning, so I count that as a win.  (They have all go to invest heavily in waterproof makeup.)

Uh.  Other than that, not much else going on.  Tired and sore from the weekend, but back at work and trucking along.

This weekend coming up is a quiet weekend, and then next weekend is 3 Whosiwhatsis, where I WILL be fighting.  In fact, I've got ONE scroll lined up for Gulf Wars, and that's IT for a while.  I'd like to concentrate on my fighting, and get at least some of the rust knocked off before I take on another commission, so I'm going to tie my hands to my knees so they don't float up any more.

So, I went to see my doctor on Thursday.  I needed a refill on my meds, and she put me back on a med I'd stopped taking.  It's a great drug, and I love being on it.  The reasons I went off are myriad and not really for public consumption, but let's just say...I have been taking it for four days and I can tell it's building up in my blood.  I'm focused and productive.  (In fact, I'm about to go upstairs and be *more* productive!)

I've started to want to wear makeup again, and have finally taken a good look at the ick that my depression has caused around the house. 

Damn, where the hell have I been the past few months?????

The NYE Pajama Party was a win.  TOTAL and utter win.  We watched Despicable Me, and Incredibles, and had a blast.  I was so lucky to have [livejournal.com profile] pancua , [livejournal.com profile] perilousknits , [livejournal.com profile] cenliamgordon , and the rest of our friends around to ring in a year that is going to freakin' ROCK.  IF you weren't there, we missed you!  If possible, this will become a tradition.  (Wheeee!  New jammies every year!)

I've gotten good news on the homecoming front, although I won't say much past that. 

Oh, I'm working on de-stashing the icky fabrics from my sewing room and getting it organized up there.  I need to sew.  Badly.  Really badly.

Uh.  That's all for me right now.  I'm going to go find a snack and then go clean up the sewing room.

I'm sorry for the confusion regarding the forgiveness post.  In the Orthodox Church, the Sunday before the start of Great Lent is "Forgiveness Sunday," when we ask those we have offended in this year to forgive us our transgressions.  I usually do it on LJ because, well, it's my largest social outlet, pretty much.

I also am simply amazed at my life.  Yeah, things aren't always the best, sometimes I fall and don't remember to look up to see my blessings, but seriously?  My life is incredible. 

I have a wonderful marriage and romantic life.   I am surrounded by love and affection at every turn, even when I wonder why.

I have a job I adore and I am lucky enough to still be employed.

I am involved with a hobby that allows my inner geek out to play, and surrounds me with more open-hearted friends than I know what to do with.  (I'm looking at you,[info]selenite,[info]celticdragonfly , and[info]liamstliam  and[info]fieryredhead, and [info]cenliamgordon, and...damn...pretty much ALL the SCAdians on my f-list....and speaking of SCAdians and lists...[info]spikywheel, did my package ever get to you?  I've had a spate of screwy mail recently and I wanted to make sure your giftie didn't get caught up in it.)  The SCA lets me revel in my love of pomp and circumstance and allows me to help others without people wondering what the hell I want.

God has truly graced me with so many good things and I am constantly in awe of the things He deems fit to bestow upon me.

Yes, we had the Beer, Bruises and Barbeque party on Sunday.  I suck for not updating about it sooner.

I'll have to get to it sometime this week, I'm sure.  I know I will.  It just won't be today.

Suffice to say that it rocked, I found out our devices passed, and yes, Liam's cote really does look as awesome as I thought it did. 

:-)

Pictures to come.

Oh, and after last night, I want studio lights.  Lights, dagnabbit.
