This was actually a fairly uneventful day – at least for me.
Rowen and I got a last-minute invitation this morning for Allen’s 13th birthday party on Saturday, but since that was probably Mom-ordered because we’d been helping him get ready for our exams; we couldn’t really get all that excited about it. At least we did already have a gift for him, like we do for all of our classmates; so at least we won’t need to do any last minute shopping tomorrow morning.
It’s been another off-and-on-again rain day, and that, combined with the looming final exams made for a fairly subdued day at school. Everyone in our study group was taking the night off, and I was looking forward to a tweeird-free night. Rowen and I got approval for a sleepover at my house by the time we got home – after stopping in for a visit to the computer store first. While we were still taking the night off, Michael, Rebecca, Jake, and Stephanie were all working at the Inn after having most of the week off so they could put in that extra study time. Part of the reason for that was because Mom and Dad were doing a dinner and night out with Uncle Adam, Aunt Leanne, Uncle Nick, Aunt Deborah, and a bunch of their friends; and dinner was at the Inn.
They didn’t set up babysitting for us – we had Grandma and Grandpa coming over to have a dinner and a movie night with us while Mom and Dad were out. Leah was spending the evening with her Grandma Ayres, and though Rowen’s parents weren’t going to join the little party until after they closed the store at nine; Patrick was shipped off for a sleepover at Scott’s house.
While Mom and Dad were out having fun, we had a quiet, uneventful night at home. We always have fun with Grandma and Grandpa, but after having a few late nights in a row; I wasn’t all that motivated to do much of anything tonight. After having a stir fry dinner, we watched one movie with Ethan and Ehlana; played with them for a while until putting them to bed for the night; and then Rowen and I watched one more movie with Grandma and Grandpa before coming upstairs for the rest of the night. Rowen took my Jacuzzi for a whirl first, and we both got ready for bed before moving into the lounge to watch some music videos and surf the web for a while on our computers.
I guess it’s appropriate that the last day of May is ending with a lot of rain – we started out the month with a rainy day; and there was a lot of wet in between. This much of it will probably mean that our first ball game will be cancelled even if the rain stops sometime in the morning, but I really hope that starting the first few hours of June out with even more rain won’t mean that we’re in for yet more of the same for another month.
Rowen’s still wide-awake and keeping me entertained, but I’m going to put my computer away; relax; and possibly fall asleep before we actually get to midnight and start the new month. Whether baseball ends up being on or off tomorrow, we have at least a short study session booked for the afternoon, and Allen’s party after that; so we’re likely going to be in for another interesting day. I’ll go out on a limb and forecast an afternoon of work clouds followed by an evening of funshine; with a seventy percent chance of tweeird.
Until next time, this is Magi Master Cassie Proctor; logging out!
