October is going to be a busy month. Here's my laundry list of things keeping me on the go:
We've got a student from Neotropical Country staying with us until early November. She works with Herb at Neotropical Field Site.
Tomorrow Jon and I are going to Canada with my parents. It's a vacation, but I'm planning to get a few highly productive hours of work in each day. I've identified two reasonable projects that I can accomplish while I'm gone (small grant proposal and draft of a short note).
When we return, I have 24 hours before I leave for a conference.
The weekend after the conference, my best friend is getting married and a bunch of our college friends are coming into town. Three are staying with us, in addition to the visiting student.
Oh yeah, somewhere in there we're getting two cats for a year from our friends who are taking off on a big year-long travel adventure.
Then we're going to Small Friendly College for the weekend. It's my cousin's senior year there and I can't wait to see her.
And then October will be over before I know it.
