october birthdays 2030

Colleen McCarthy celebrates her first birthday with her maternal grandparents and Aunt Paige. It isn’t that Oliver’s family isn’t excited for Colleen’s birthday, as much as she is the only grandchild and niece for the Lange family, and they are that much more excited.

Trisha took vacation time from the law office so she could bake and shop for the special event. It’s Brooklyn’s birthday as well, so she doesn’t feel like it’s over celebrating. In her opinion, October is the best month for celebrations and baking without all the pressure of the holidays.

When you find out your sister is your Mom, and your parents are actually your grandparents, you get a pet bird. At least in my experience. I’d wanted a pet bird for years, and they’d decided it was an appropriate time to cave. That was all just over a year ago, and KiKi is my favorite part of home these days.

Every single one of my family members knew the truth, and no one had ever bothered to even give me a hint. Mom and Dad are still my parents, I’ve decided that much. Julia has never even been a great sister to me, Hadley has always had my back, so it doesn’t even compute to consider her as my Mom. There’s a break in my sanity when I even consider that I’m from her.

From her, and who else?

I managed to earn a promotion at work, now I’m a Studio Designer which means I get to design billboards and covers from books to music. The hours are actually fantastic for when Irina is in school, but I hardly hope to stay stagnant the next four years ether.

I wrote my first play back at university, and have been trying to wedge my foot in the door of theater ever since. Finally this past summer, one of my earlier plays was picked up to run at the community theater through September and October. I had a great cast, and the rehearsals went superbly well. Our reviews were a mixed bag, but overall the theme was that there was talent on the stage, and potential for me as well.

The theater definitely wants me to write and direct another play in the future too, I just need to get some new material to them to review.
