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.
