October was great. There was lots of fall flavored beer.
I got to dress like a Yankee, even if he was a naughty one.
Then I spent some time hanging out with Stan Marsh.
The leaves surprised me and turned magnificent, all while it was still warm enough to wear sandals.
And I got to see my brother.
Now I’m preparing myself for November to be a whirlwind. It seems one or both of us has something going on every single week. While I think it will be a lot of fun, I also think we will be crazy busy.
Week 1 – I’m leaving on Thursday to go to MI to see friends and for a baby shower, and Jeremy is attending a topology conference.
Week 2 – I have a really weird work week (only three days with students) because of Veteran’s day and then a professional development day. We also really need to get our Christmas shopping done this week.
Week 3 – HARRY POTTER premiers. Yes this is an important event, yes it’s been on my calendar for over 6 months. While we won’t go to the midnight showing this year because there is no way I can get home at 3 or 4 and be up at five. We will be going on the weekend.
Week 4 – This is a two day work week. We are going to NY for Thanksgiving, celebrating Christmas with Jeremy’s side of the family, and running a 5k.
With two out of town trips, all of the job application deadlines Jeremy has, plus all of the things I’m sure I just don’t know about yet, it’s going to be a crazy month. I’m sure I will look back on this post in a few weeks and think it’s only been a few days.
