Wow, Origins was crazy this year. I wanted to do daily updates to this site during Origins, but that didn’t happen due to all the chaos.
We had to change hotel rooms in the middle of the convention, our friend’s hotel room got canceled because of us trying not to have to change rooms in the middle of the con. My daughter sprained her ankle during the con and was in a wheelchair most of the con. The wife of one of my husbands GM got into a bad car accident (she was fine, car totaled), This along with getting bad news from a couple people during the con, and one death leading up to the con.
Plus, I found out that I have gained weight so a lot of my costumes don’t fit me anymore. None of my corsets that I have from prior years actually fit. Time to lose weight. But before that can happen, we have to figure out my daughter’s new diet. She was diagnosed with gastroparesis.
Finally, I pulled a muscle in my back which has me on steroids and muscle relaxers for 5 days.
On a positive note, my daughter got engaged during Origins. She is wearing the Starfire Costume I made her.
Also, I am less than a week away from completing the first class towards my Master’s Degree in Special Education.
