I will admit that it is nice having the family gathered in Nagrand even if some of the more key members aren’t present due to the on-going conflict in Draenor. The whole thing seems rather odd and while I understand the reasons for us all to be sent off to protect Azeroth from this latest incursion, it seems a bit forced on our part. Oh well, it isn’t for me to understand the political ramifications that all of this entails, it just seems to be a war like all of the ones in the past – overcome the foe or foes and then rinse and repeat.
I know that I did enjoy having the family here and while some have already left to go back to their homes, there will be a few that will stay on until after the New Year, myself included. I know that I truly missed having my Sindorei here with me because it was the first time that we have everyone at the new house in Nagrand. I know that I chuckled more than a few times when some of the guests remarked on how similar some of the things and the design resembled the house in Dalaran – what they do seem to fail to realize is that the house in Dalaran was my Sindorei husband’s pride and joy. Oh well, I know that we spent a great deal of time getting this house designed and decorated – the house in Nagrand is also more open than the floor plan was in Dalaran because we could make it larger.
I was very lucky in being able to delay my departure for Draenor by just saying that I had other responsibilities with my personal life and business that couldn’t’ be readily handed off. I will be reporting in for duty with the Sentinels in Feathermoon just I have in the past. It’s funny how so many of us are doing the same thing – we all have grown older, the majority of us have families now and are less adventurous than we were when we were younger.
I know that I missed having Kal and Kae here this year too. They were in hopes that they would be given the opportunity to join the rest of the family here, however, that doesn’t seem to have been made available to them. I know that Kal was probably more than a little bit upset with the whole thing. I know that I have received several letters from him telling me how beautiful some of the places that he has see are in Draenor and yet I felt like there was something that was bothering him about the whole thing. I think his biggest problem is that he enjoys having his farm in Pandaria and having the freedom that he had taken away by having to report back into duty with the Sentinels. I know that being a Scout isn’t the easiest thing for some of the men and Kal is no exception.
I know that Fnor’s two sisters were here for a while and I had some worries with the fact that they spent the majority of the time here trying not to talk to one another. There still seems to be some tension between the two of them due to the youngest being so stubborn about her infatuation with that Dawnglory – he is rather nice to look at with all of that golden hair, however, he isn’t nearly as good looking as my husband in my eyes. Oh well, I’m sure that the girls will work things out between them because it is something that I know my husband would want. I guess Felaran is still very much attached to her Death Knight mate and can’t understand why Faendra won’t move on with her life. I guess that Dawnglory is in Draenor now anyway, we’ll see what happens with that side of the family.
Business is still booming in Shattrath and I hope that it keeps going that way because I know that we will definitely need the funds once this conflict is resolved – we always can use more money. I know that my business interests have probably increased three fold since this new military issue opened up and we’re all busy trying to keep the army supplied with the things that they need from Azeroth – getting them shipped there has been a different kind of nightmare. I think that this is worse than when we were going through the Rebellion on the Horde side of things. Oh well, I’m sure that we will keep things going in a positive direction with Magdamia keeping a tight control on things in Stormwind.
I am sitting here laughing to myself a little it because I am just wondering how soon my love will start sending me ideas of opening up another warehouse in Draenor. The man may be in the military, however, his mind always drifts back to his business interests rather quickly. Since I haven’t ventured into the abyss yet, I have no idea what to really expect once I arrive there. Of course, I would like to be able to see my Sindorei as soon as I get there, however, the political line is pretty well drawn in the sand already. I don’t know if they are any more receptive to our relationship than they have been in the past – maybe we’ll just have to wait and see how this all pans out. I do know that the only place that we can be together is in Outland and primarily in Shattrath where the people already know of our relationship from years past. It still must seem strange to some of the newcomers that a Sentinel and Ranger can be together like we have for all of these years.
Oh well, it’s time for me to stop writing for a bit and get back to being the hostess for our guests that are still here.
