Renewing my passport.

I'll be traveling in Mexico in late November and then in Europe next April.. When I get home from Mexico I'll arrange to have my passport renewed. How long does it take to get this done and have it in my possession again? Will I have it back before April?

Yes. The time it takes has gotten much shorter. From their website

As of (Wednesday October 14, 2009 ), we are processing routine applications in approximately 4-6 weeks from the time of application.

Check their website -- it gives times on a daily or close to daily basis. currently it say 4-6 weeks. I have not heard of any problems with people getting passports so u should be fine. I would renew as soon as you return from Mexico just to be on the safe side.

I renewed last year. I was pleasantly surprised how quick and easy the process was. I was also happy to have my old one back a few weeks later.

In case you need it in an even shorter amount of time, you can have it expedited to within a week or two for an additional sixty dollars.
