A Party and a Performance!

If any of you empaths were sud­den­ly hit with a sense of pan­ic a few min­utes ago, that was just me real­iz­ing that we’re OUT OF GRITS! I’m hav­ing ham bis­cuits for break­fast instead. Yes, I do know what time it is. The first meal I eat each day is breakfast.

And in the news—yes! The Geor­gia Supreme Court has over­turned the stu­pid for­ni­ca­tion law!

I real­ized this morn­ing that I haven’t real­ly post­ed any­thing since last Mon­day about what’s actu­al­ly been going on around here.

Actu­al­ly, I’m hav­ing trou­ble remem­ber­ing much of note dur­ing the week last week. I think just about all of us saw our ther­a­pists last week. And there was some anx­i­ety because the seam­stress sewing my Try­bal­a­ka cos­tume was­n’t return­ing our calls at all. Oh! isar­ma and jupiter­corn­wall did come over here last Mon­day night, which was nice. 

fae­bouche came to see us on Fri­day night! That was fun. I haven’t real­ly spo­ken with her that much online, although sam­bear has known her for a cou­ple of years in the vir­tu­al world. She’s a sweet­heart. Her first pri­or­i­ty was to meet the cats, so you know she’s good peo­ple! She played Once Upon a Time with the kids after din­ner, too. I think they went on to play Chrononauts after she came back to chat with us.

god­dessin­ga and greyknight arrived with Lit­tle Miss and Son, and we enjoyed some mar­velous time with our sweet­ies, too. On Sat­ur­day they packed up their kids and our girls to head up for Athens and the gym­nas­tic meets, and fae­bouche went in search of Nease’s Needle­work before head­ing for home. sam­bear and I went up to Jef­fer­son to pick up my cos­tume for the Try­bal­a­ka par­ty that night.

The seam­stress left the cos­tume in a bag on the porch, and she was­n’t home for us to both­er talk­ing to her about the fact that she did­n’t do any­thing very well. The bodice was WAY too big, the blouse was done in the wrong fab­ric, the skirt was, well, a lit­tle weird, etc. sam­bear put the grom­mets in the bodice and we adjust­ed things as well as we could and struck out for the par­ty, run­ning very late and miss­ing the pre-par­ty warm-up at isar­ma’s house.

We did make it to the actu­al par­ty before the oth­er band members—apparently, we weren’t the only ones run­ning late! I saw sev­er­al peo­ple who I just don’t get to see often enough, and met a few who I’ve encoun­tered online but did­n’t know offline before. Lots of very nice hugs were exchanged—never a bad thing.

The per­for­mance went rel­a­tive­ly well—we were a lit­tle bit rough but the crowd was very nice and I think we all enjoyed it.

The par­ty was—interesting. Fun, but dif­fer­ent for me 🙂 I found that I was large­ly vis­it­ing with the oth­er band mem­bers any­way, and we end­ed up leav­ing around mid­night to go back to isar­ma’s house to hang out any­way. jupiter­corn­wall had to leave ear­li­er, as the lit­tlun was grumpy, so that let us see more of him. We final­ly got to meet one mem­ber’s girl­friend who we’ve only heard about before, too, which was nice—she’s a sweetie.

We got home WAY too late for old peo­ple and were both very drag­gy on Sun­day. Sun­day night we had a Try­bal­a­ka busi­ness meet­ing and audi­tions and our 90-day reviews—we’re full mem­bers now! Yay! And jupiter­corn­wall is a mem­ber of the group again, which is goodness.

We came home to find greyknight and god­dessin­ga cud­dling on our couch with most of the kids asleep, and got more cud­dles. So over­all, I have to say it was a mar­velous weekend 🙂
