Do I have an event on my calendar that I am looking forward to or dreading this year? I don’t really make plans. I am more of a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants person. Most of the things on my calendar are doctor appointments either for myself of my youngest child. I m indifferent about those though, my youngest looks forward to them since we try to make his appointments special in some way. After spending hours being poked and prodded at up at the hospital its nice to do a little something special for him. Though, he’s usually wiped out afterward so nothing too major. I told him after his next appointment I would take him out to eat since we found a restaurant up there that has a gluten free menu and he wants to try it. He hasn’t been able to eat out much since he had to go gluten free.
In the summer I’m taking my middle child to a huge anime convention called Anime Iowa. He and his friends are excited to attend that. They’ve been planning their costumes since last summer. I don’t know that I will attend, I will probably explore the city while they’re doing their cosplay thing. That could be fun, especially if I take someone with me so I have someone to go on little adventures with.
My sister and I were discussing trying to attend Penned Con in September but we really don’t know if our work schedules would allow for that. The idea of that makes me a little anxious. I know that event is a pretty big one and I don’t care for crowds but I do think it would be worth it to attend.
Do you have any events coming up that you’re looking forward to or are you more of a spur of the moment person like me?
