Yesterday on Twitter Jaggins_Eve suggested I run for the 4th term of the Council of Stellar Management. (Thanks man, I appreciate the vote of confidence.) I had intended to run for it but plans have changed.
I also intended to start a podcast called Broadcasts from the Ninveah, but that plan is on hold as well.
Finally, plans to go to this year's Fanfest had to (reluctantly) be put on hold, thus causing Roc's posts from Iceland to be even more envy-inducing.
The reason all these plans have been post-poned is because this past summer my wife became pregnant again, much to our collective surprise, and is due in March 2010. There is a lot of work that needs to be done to make our small home ready for another addition, and money to be spent on new items that we can't use from the twins' babyhood and decorating the office as a nursery.
So I don't have the time to properly dedicate to being a good CSM canidate, nor to getting a podcast off the ground and keeping it running through next spring and summer which promises to be utter hell in terms of busy-ness. Twin boys at 2 years old and a newborn? Egads.
Hell, managing to play Eve is hard enough now, with one good gaming session a week on average and many short spurts before work or before bed the rest of the time. Next summer could be difficult to find any time online. Sigh.
On the upside, childhood is fleeting. The twins are already turning into little boys instead of little babies, and in no time they'll be asking for help with homework and going to Jiu Jitsu classes with their old man.
Eve on the other hand, is forever.
