And they call her Irene...

     Hurricane Irene is heading our way, so I thought I would share a bit.  It is supposed to start raining really soon from said hurricane, but I don't see anything yet, so I am thinking more than likely its just going to blow us by.
      I'm continuing to work on my job hunt, since I am done with my fieldwork in two weeks. In the crafting realm, I'm still working on my blasted sock, as well as a bit of Kumihimo for extra ties (we have a bad habit of loosing boddice and doublet ties). I wish I had a picture of my sock to show you all, but I am still waiting until I get one completely done until the unveiling.
      I will admit, I did open my big fat mouth again, and made myself more work. I have been asked to make prizes for the Pennsylvania College of Technology's BYOC and Comic Con that will be held in April. They will include a few hats, a zelda doll, possibly a Zelda bag, and a penguin. When I get home tomorrow, I think that is what I will start on and hopefully things will go according to plan :).
     I have been given a challenge by a dear friend of ours. She has challenged me to become a deputy Chatelaine. A chatelaine is the newcomer liaison in a group, who helps to introduce and assist newcomers in the SCA. In the medieval ages, the Chatelaine was in charge of providing the Estate's hospitality. She believes that I am already doing the work, I might as well hold the title! I am continuing my work with the college group that I have started (more on that later), and am hoping if/when I do become a deputy, I can continue to work with college groups. Jehan has been asked to put in a letter of interest to become the Kingdom Chatelaine, meaning I would also help him with that task "unofficially". We have started making plans for ideas that he would like to initiate for when/if  he holds the office. I am just very excited that someone see's potential in me, and is giving me a direction in which to head in for the SCA. I would love to hold the Chancelor Minor position, but due to current circumstances, I will not be able to hold that position, more of less any position for right now. It will be interesting to see what happens in the future.

Hoping everyone fairs the storm,

After the great Pennsic war

well, today was the last day of the great Pennsic war. I helped to pack up Jehan and his camp, then made the 5 hour trip home. although we took a nice long nap in the middle, we made it home at about 5:30 am. Although I only saw the last dregings of the war, I am extremely excited for next year.

At my doctors appt. this past Wednesday, they discovered that I do not have Rheumatoid Arthritis according to the blood tests. I do have a vitamin D deficiency, so we are going to try me on vitamins and continue on with the pain medication. If in 2 weeks I am still in pain, then it is in for an MRI, and who knows from there...

I also wish I could say I did something interesting since my first post, but its mainly been laundry and getting ready to get Jehan. I have decided I am going to finish my socks and I will post them hopefully next time. I am having computer problems, so hopefully they do not stop me from posting.

Till later,

Welcome everyone!

This will be my first post of many along my journey of life. I am hoping to be diligent to this blog, and post at least once every 2 weeks if not sooner. It will be a slow moving process, but hopefully I will be able to do it. currently, life is slightly crazy, for I am finishing my occupational therapy assistant degree with my last set of clinical experience, and am trying to find a job for after my completion. I am also trying to plan a wedding, and patch some of my garb, and organize my scattered brain life. This is also the second week of Pennsic (The Pennsic Wars are an annual event between the East and Middle Kingdoms of the Society for Creative Anachronism,  and are hosted by the Kingdom of Æthelmearc at Coopers' Lake Campground). I was not able to attend due to school. I hope you enjoy my blog, and I hope to post again soon

till then
