And we're off, thoughts on getting to convention

It's time once again for the anual
convention. We're here at the hotel, and I must say that thus far, I think this is the best hotel for getting internet at. I'm hoping that will allow me to keep a more frequent account of the goings on here. I make no promises, however.

It's a bittersweet time for me. I'm getting to see friends I've known for years, meet others I've known online and it's wonderful. But Thursday night my great aunt died, and so we may be going to a funeral then coming back. Or not, because I forgot a vital medication at home, and we have to figure out how to get it here. It's hard not to beat myself up and say I've ruined everything. Honestly, the emotional quicksand I've been stuck in for a while just won't give up its grip..

So for those who are at convention, I look forward to seeing you. To those who can't be here, we'll miss you. To everyone, I'll try to write more than I usually do at convention, but I make no promises.
