It occurred to me that I have been so busy this week I forgot to let people know that we won't be at Arisia this weekend. Like last year, it would be too much trouble this year trying to go to Arisia with Muffin and Squeaker in tow. (It's even harder this year, as the convention has moved to the Westin Waterfront hotel; a nice space, but an inconvenient location for us.)
Also, although we often use Arisia as an excuse to throw a birthday party for Nomi, we're not doing so this year.
We're sorry we'll be missing out on all the social interaction, but we need the rest.
And did I mention that the eruv is down? Yep, it's down.
