Yay for a 4-day weekend

Technically, my crappy week is over today. Because tomorrow starts my four-day game convention and all I have to do is play and teach board games with other game lovers. I'm not exactly in the best frame of mind for it, but hopefully that will change tomorrow. I'm in a game at noon being run by a friend I made at last year's con. It'll be good to chill.

Because I need it. We still don't have a venue for the play festival, though the artistic director hasn't given up hope and seems to think she can find one. I didn't get the library job, which is probably for the better in the long run but frankly still made me a little sad. And our monthly booster meeting was on Wednesday night, and it turned into a venting session about how little support we get from the parents.

Then there's dealing with my mom. For the most part, it's been okay, but there's one aspect that's tough. She watches a lot of TLC, especially "My 600 lb Life." And she is constantly commenting about how crazy these people are and how they just need to stop eating and totally discounting their emotions. And it's tough to listen to. She has never in her life had a weight problem. She's skinny as a rail, eats crap, and doesn't gain weight. Yet, all three of her daughters struggle with their weight. The lack of empathy is hard.

So the next four days away from the house will be a good reprieve.
