michaeldthomas: (Caitlin 08)
We're all a bit exhausted around here. After a very busy week, the weekend was only slightly restful. Today, we celebrated Caitlin's birthday with our local friends. It was lovely. We ate cake and watched little girls play. Caitlin received many wonderful gifts, including the Star Wars prequel DVDs. I guess that means I have to rewatch them.

Next week is going to be just as insane. Tomorrow is Caitlin's IEP meeting at school. This is the meeting that establishes Caitlin's educational contract with the school. It determines things like goals, services, and equipment. Hopefully, this will be a smooth meeting. I'm not expecting trouble, but you never know.

Tuesday is Caitlin's actual birthday. Unfortunately, [livejournal.com profile] rarelylynne will be gone all day with NPR celebrity Peter Sagal. He's doing a major event for the Friends of the NIU Libraries, and Lynne is his liaison. I will be spending the evening in all likelihood watching Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Such is life.

We had some snow today. This is the time of year that I miss Connecticut the most. It was quite the novelty having a fall that lasted more than three weeks.

I haven’t blogged much in the last week, mostly because it’s been pretty dull around here. Caitlin is still off for the summer. She was a bit grumpy last week as her brain came back from seizureland, but she was otherwise healthy. Caitlin discovered Star Wars last week. I swear that I had nothing to do with it. She chose to watch Star Wars movies over Disney and Harry Potter (I blame all of those Clone War commercials). She laughed and screamed through all three films (Episodes IV-VI). The geek gene is strong in my daughter. :)

We had some adventures yesterday. We started with a nice afternoon at my mom’s apartment. We later went out to dinner with our friend [livejournal.com profile] taraljc while my mom watched Caitlin in the evening. Tara and [livejournal.com profile] rarelylynne are now working together on a seekrit book project, so this was mainly a chance for them to talk over some things in person. This meal also happened at the end of VividCon, so we got to meet a bunch of cool people who are part of the fannish vid community.

One of the VividCon attendees was a fairly well known SF author. Since this author is a friend of Tara’s, Lynne scored an introduction. We are having a full meal with this author on Tuesday before a book signing so that Lynne can do her NIU SF Archive presentation. We are really looking forward to this.

The rest of the week will be spent watching Caitlin and writing. :)

when your child chooses to watch Star Wars: A New Hope over the Aristocats. She even giggled when making her choice.

It looks like we might have to see The Clone Wars after all.
