The Next Seven Weeks
In the next seven weeks we have:
re-building the shipping system
all the end-of-school activities of which I’ve not yet been notified
advance copies of Sharp End of the Stick (SEOS)
a school art gala
opening pre-orders for SEOS
Kiki’s AP art portfolio
receiving the SEOS shipment
teaching at LDS Storymakers conference
sending me to the Nebula weekend in DC
a time-swap week during which Gleek will pretend to be living in a pre-computer era
sending Howard to World Steam Expo in Ann Arbor
a dance festival
a week long visit from my mom
unspecified child crises which will pop up randomly and inconveniently
preparations for Deep South Con in June
All of those things are important, as are preparations for GenCon and WorldCon. But this week contains the most important event of the entire year. This is when Howard and I gather the kids and flee our work to go do nothing in particular in southern Utah. The only agenda is to be together. Hopefully fun will be had, but even if crankiness is had, that is fine. Uninterrupted time together is the point.
As for the other stuff, I’m not particularly stressed about it all. I can see where everything fits. It is going to be busy, but not crazy. I hope.
