Maybe we'll go down tomorrow and just for the day. It's a long drive, and probably not wise... but none of the money came in today, so it's very unwise to go down and spend a couple nights.
It's pretty apparent that I'm not supposed to go off and have fun this year. From my birthday on, nothing has fallen into place. I know I'm not going to World Con or, alas, World Fantasy Con -- I've been looking forward to the last because it's so close for a change.
But that's life. You run into these problem years now and then. Maybe by next year things will work out.
