November is going to be a hugely busy month for me... here's a rundown of what's going on!
This Sunday, Nov. 4 - Family birthday party for November birthdays, which will be me and my niece, who's turning 4. Since my dad is recovering from surgery, we've decided to combine them together and have the party at my parent's house to make it easy on him.
Thursday, Oct. 8 - Payday, and one of two days off for me! I'm hoping to spend part of the day getting some maintenance done on the car -- at least an oil change, and perhaps a tune-up. The remainder of the day I should be able to get some stuff prepared in advance for this blog (I know my comics ad archive won't last forever!).
Friday, Oct. 9 - My actual birthday, and the second day off! Current plan is to drive down to Jessi's work at the Head Start to volunteer in our son's class for the morning, and then afterwards, I think he and I will go to lunch with Jessi, and then she'll go back to work while we go do something fun together!
Sunday, Oct. 11 - Portland Comic Book Show - our son's first comic book show, and my brother and possibly his wife will go down with us; although the women are planning on doing other shopping while the guys geek out.
Thursday, Oct. 15 - Unless something untoward happens, we're scheduled for family court on this day to officially adopt our son (after which I can finally refer to him by name in this thing)! We'll likely both take the entire day off (since I don't have any more days off, I'll either "call in sick" or just try to make up the time in advance and afterwards).
Sunday, Oct. 18 - The adoption party, assuming that the court date happens!
Of course, between all that is work and other stuff!
