I thought I’d post a brief update on where things are at:
I’m camping with the boys again, trying to squeeze in an extra week before school starts. I’m hoping to get a couple of weekends in as well, but we’ll see.
I’m continueing to revise ‘The Courier’, which may go through a title change soon. I haven’t updated the revision page counter here yet, since the revisions are on paper and not in the computer yet. I’m heading to Ghana in a couple of weeks, and I really want the thing revised and in the computer, so I can do more work while I’m there.
It looks like my status as a stay-at-home dad may change. I haven’t got a formal offer yet, but it sounds close. The job will completely work around the schedule of my boys, which means they’ll never notice I’m working. I’ll still drop them off to school, pick them up, be home during school holidays, etc. The potential work schedule is entirely based on the school year, which is great. Personally, I’d rather stay at home than go and work, but the offer is almost like candy… tough to say no to.
