Tonight the Fat Lady sings

Well, this is it. Tonight is the last game of the current Purgatory installment. I have mixed feelings about it to be honest. Purgatory has been such a huge part of my life for the last year and a half, and I am going to miss it, a lot. I am looking forward to a break though, I need some time to rethink my current character. I am still having a hard time letting go of Bridget, and I think that this break will help me with that. I am really starting to enjoy my new character, Eris, and hopefully she will be even more enjoyable when we start the third and final Purgatory.

I am also looking forward to spending more time at Iain and Val's place in the next few months making my new costume. I have finally picked the pattern that I am going to make, and I'm really looking forward to it. It is a beautiful civil war day gown, it's going to be a challenge, but I suspect it might be a bit easier than the Elizabethan gown I made for Bridget. You can see a picture here.

Other than Purgatory stuff, I really haven't got a lot going on in my world. Mary is still cranky as hell, especially in the evenings. She is going to hang out with a friend tonight, I really hope she is happier than she was last night. Good news is that she has started to sleep through the night once again. Yay! I am still having a hell of a time sleeping at night though, last night I seriously thought about taking sleeping pills, but I hate to take those icky things. I'm getting to my ropes end though, I really need to sleep, and I cant think of what else to do. Any suggestions?

Oh! I know, we bought her Halloween costume yesterday. So cute! It is a plush lion, and she is going to be adorable, and warm, which is most important. I am looking forward to Halloween just so I can dress her up and show her off. Hmm. What else...I got a hair cut yesterday. Very pricey, yikes. I cut off all my lovely long hair, but I do like it. Of course, my friends had to put me in my place by commenting on my "Soccer Mum" hairdo. Sigh.

A Benadryl before bed might help.

I've been thinking about a "Mom-cut" too.
