Unfortunately, this was not a good weekend to get together.
I have a cunning plan for Wednesday evening, one that involves leaving writing group a little early and zooming off to Mesa with a book. I managed to find So You Want to Be A Wizard, which is one of the books that's a building block of my mind. Darkside needs a piece of my mind for his birthday. This may lend itself to the planning of an outing for the following weekend. It may not. Either way, I win.
So does he.
It's definitely some sort of stability-point that we've reached. I'd almost say that we've reset, but that's not quite it. This is round three, as far as the universe and I are keeping score. I wonder ... he mentioned, at some point, something or other that ... didn't click ... from long ago. And Sis and I were nearly identical, back in the day, our respective days. Could this be round three for each of us?
Maybe third time's the charm.
