Dad and I started out our day with more snow shoveling instead of Tai Chi, but it was a lot easier to deal with today; and we even managed to have a little fun while we worked.
Mom took care of Ethan and Ehlana, and had a hot cereal breakfast ready for us by the time we were finished, and after cleaning the kitchen; it was time to hit the showers and get ready for work and school.
Despite the sledding incident yesterday, there wasn’t really any tweeird for me to deal with today. Lisa didn’t really talk to me at all, and definitely kept an eye on Michael and me during music class; but we stayed out of trouble, and at least that part of my day was uneventful. We were all kept really busy in our classes, and though the two snow storms hadn’t actually affected our Day One classes; our teachers still seemed to feel the need to work us a little harder to make up for the lost days. The school was practically empty during lunchtime – at least once everyone had eaten. Even some of our teachers came outside to play for a while; and nearly every kid and teen was in the school yard, even if they were only there to watch the action and chat with friends.
I was trying to balance having fun with staying out of the tweeird zone, so Rowen and I decided to help some younger girls with a little snow castle building. We helped them defend it during a snowball attack from some of the boys their ages; and then we went inside a few minutes early so we’d have enough time to de-snow ourselves before going to our first afternoon class.
Keeping my day tweeird-free wasn’t a problem after school – Michael was working at the Inn. Rowen and I did our after school snack with Mom, Ethan, and Ehlana; got our homework out of the way; and then we took the twins out for a little snow play time in the back yard. The deep snow wasn’t quite as much fun for them today, and they were ready to go in after about twenty minutes or so. After helping Mom to get them out of their snowsuits, Rowen and I grabbed our sleds and headed for the toboggan hill. There was already a gang of kids and teens there, and the fun was in full swing. The snow was getting packed down farther out along the bottom of the ridge now, so the runs were longer – and so was the walk back up the hill. We were out there for about an hour before we were cold enough to decide that it was time to head home again.
Rowen was staying for dinner and a Magi lesson, so we made up cups of hot chocolate after getting home, and helped Mom with making dinner until Dad got home too. The next few hours were fairly entertaining. Mom and Dad had a lot of snowstorm stories from around town to pass on to us during dinner; Ethan, Ehlana, Rowen, and I all had a blast (not literally) with our Magi lesson; and Rowen and I even had time for a music practice before she needed to head home. I helped Mom with giving Ethan and Ehlana their baths after Rowen left; we did the bedtime snack and story with Dad in the office; and I’ve been in my room since tucking my brother and sister in for the night.
Since I was in bed early, I used the extra time for a little family business work, and then moved on to my usual studies and nightly computer checks. There isn’t anything particularly interesting to report from any of the work I’ve been doing since climbing into bed with Mandy, and I’m pretty much ready to crash now anyway, so...
