I let the missus convince me to go to the local LARP, again. I got to say I agree that it was nice to see everybody. I got to also say that it might, might, be nice to get back into it and hang out with everybody again. Because honestly what I’d like to do is just hang out and chat about a lot of other stuff. Which happens at LARP. It’s kind of the penultimate in ‘hurry up and wait’.
I don’t know if I mentioned the rabbit. We finally got one. Her name is Honey and she’s a sweet little thing. The kids are still excited, especially the Beast. It’s something she’s wanted for years. The missus and I let her tear around the living room at night, after making sure the dog and kitten are out of the way. We have also noticed she’s not as gross as the cats. No hacking up hairballs, no smelly crap in the litter box. And she uses the litter box! No muss, no fuss. Speaking of Ms. Kitten, she’s keen on nibbling on Honey. There’s been a number of attempts on her part to get into the room with her and chomp down on her neck. For her part, Honey doesn’t seem to mind. Or notice for that matter.
We went to the Science Center today. The new aquarium is still as awesome as last time. The octopus was actually out and about, and even moved around their tank. The lion fish were doing there thing, looking beautifully menacing. The meerkats were also very active. The kids loved it. They didn’t love that we didn’t hit the gift shop, but I think all is forgiven.
And finally, ten days of school left. Ten days. Nine and half for me, but that’s not a big thing. The Eldest moves on from elementary school. It’s so weird. It doesn’t seem like she should be that old. It only seems like the other day, maybe a week or so at the most, that she was coming home from the hospital. A few hours ago she was starting school. I don’t think the time’s been wasted, it just seems to have gone far too quickly. I won’t even go into the Boy’ going into Kindergarten come the next school year.
