No title, just rambles.

I’ve just mentally scanned my schedule for the next month and all I can say is “Eeep!” Where is the routine? There is no succession of days where I can establish regular times for getting up or meals or putting kids to bed and such. Mothers of Four thrive on routine. Autopilot is my friend.

Oh well, School starts on August 23 and it will provide plenty of routine. I just need to manage the intervening 4 weeks to get there.

The good news is that some of the stuff in the next four weeks I’m really looking forward to. In two weeks I load kids and head for Boise to a family reunion. 11 adults, 11 kids, 1 house, Whee! The kids love it and I love the time after the kids are in bed when I get to sit and visit with parents and siblings. Or play games, we do that too.

Colliding with the end of the reunion is Fandemonium. That’s when I get to escape the over-stuffed house, leaving some of the children behind to play with cousins, and head to a nice Hotel.

At the hotel will be many online friends whom I’ll get the chance to meet in person for the first time. It’ll also be my first ever Con. I also get to be on a panel at the con. And since Howard is Guest of Honor he’ll frequently be in the spotlight. I tend to stand next to him, that puts me in the spotlight too. The potential for public embarassment in front of people I want to impress is pretty high here. I hope I’m up to it.

  1. You’ll do fine at Fandemonium

    Just fine.

    And if you think it’s not going fine, let me know and I’ll kidnap you.

    Which child are you not leaving with the relatives?

    I’m really looking forward to meeting you!

  2. Re: You’ll do fine at Fandemonium

    There will probably be at least one afternoon that I’ll get the chance to shepherd all four around the convention so that they can see Daddy being a cartoonist.

    Patches will probably be at Schlockfest because I don’t want to leave him with relatives overnight. It wouldn’t make him or them happy although they’d do it if I asked.

    Phooey, not that I don’t want to meet Patches, but he’s a bit too young to be distracted/kept busy by handing him pens, stickers, and a bunch of button blanks 🙂

    I will be bringing the camera, now that there will be definite baby presence.

  4. Re: You’ll do fine at Fandemonium

    Don’t worry, he’ll head to bed in the back room early in the evening and then I’ll be able to shut down the mommy circuits.

    Funny, that’s almost exactly what Kreely said when she learned of Patches likely presence. 😉 So that makes at least three cameras since mine is a sure thing.

    3 weeks to go and really looking forward to seeing you there.

  5. I hope you have an amazing time at the convention. I’ve always found that there’s a great energy at most cons. There’s tons to do and people are open and friendly.

    From the way you handled the thread about the topic for our panel, I think you’ll be a great panelist. Do you have any ideas for a description of the panel? I think Oggy would like one for the program 🙂

    I can’t wait to meet you and Howard and the rest of the gang 🙂
