Twilight Visits

For years now I have been attending Rites of Spring and have been wanting to get to Twilight Covening but have not managed to make it there yet.

Every year something comes up. I can't get the time off work... I can't afford the registration... Friends schedule their wedding for that weekend... etc. However, this year was looking good, like I would be able to make it.

That was until this past week.

My mother called and told me she and her sister, my aunt, are going to be coming to visit. Do you want to guess which weekend they will be here?

Don't get me wrong. I love my mother and will be happy to see her, it just strikes me as funny that they picked that weekend. Oh well, there is always next year for Twilight.

It will be good to see my mother. We talk a couple of times a month, but I haven't actually seen her since I got back up to visit for Christmas 2004. Almost 2 years ago.

I was looking forward to spending the weekend at Twilight, but now I'm looking forward even more to spending it with my mother and aunt.


  1. Somehow, I'd have thought it was a courtesy to make sure the people you're visiting have the date clear, first.

    I know you'll be glad to see them, anyway. And once again, I won't be the only one who can't make it to Twilight. *wrygrin*

    Speaking of weekends, do you think I could book one of yours in Febuary or March a year and a half from now? If I had a date, I'd give it to, but I'm still working on that. *wrygrin*

  2. Journey: I didn't mention it in the post, but they did give three weekends that they could make it. However, the other two are completely out of the question because I am going to be in California on a business trip.

    As for the weekend you mentioned, I'll have to check my calendar... :)

  3. Sounds disappointing - but your comment "now I'm looking forward even more to spending it with my mother and aunt" is heartwarming...

    Hope you enjoy their visit.


  4. I had a really, really weird dream last night in which a very good friend of mine and yourself were getting married.

    I'd be willing to bet that she has never met you, although she is also an IT type. She is most certainly *not* TWIL.

    Verrrrry strange. Also your hair was dyed purple. Don't ask me why. I don't know.

    Fewer antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, antihistamines and decongestants are required, it seems.
