Kinda bummed

In a proper world, I should be taking a vacation day tomorrow because we're leaving for Pennsic.  

This is the first one I've missed since I started in the SCA - I've gone every year since 1988 (Bob has been going two years longer than I have).  I've gone seven and a half months pregnant.  I've gone with a ten month old.  This year we're not going.  Of course, we're not going because we're trying not to lose the house, but that doesn't make it better - just necessary.  Let's hope that the discontinuity will lead to employment.  That would make it more than worthwhile.

For whatever reasons, however good and valid and such, there is something disconcerting about the interruption of an activity that is close to ritual.  Hence, I'm bummed out.

This too shall pass.  Meanwhile, I continue to make great strides on my goal of establishing appropriate licenses for all of our regional offices.  This too, is well worth doing.  Just not what I'd characterize as "fun."
