King Mob

tick tock

May continues to be the crazy. M. is afield for PennLite camping, so I am flying solo for the next couple days. By which I mean, I am taking care of the house and talking to the cats. Sunday looks to be exciting: picking up Z., getting her back and dressed up, and heading out to a wedding with little to no downtime.

Other than that, just cruising along and trying to keep the calendar in shape. Hopefully find time to catch up with people I've been missing in the near future. The gaming crew decided against Gen Con in August. Instead, we're looking at a smaller, closer con in July, and possibly hanging out at a cabin for a few days with the various families. More details as that solidifies.

So, yes. There's all that.
