It rained off and on all day, and this time; it did pretty much wash out any outdoor fun.
In fact, I don’t really have much news from today at all except for a bit of schedule changing that Michael, Tim, and Rowen did so that we could all have a lot of tomorrow off to study for exams and either have a camping or sleepover adventure. The last part of that will depend on the weather; but the main reason we couldn’t just do that tonight instead is because Lucas has to work on the farm tomorrow and couldn’t do that with us tonight. The weather issue is going to keep our guest list smaller than we might have liked too; but I can’t do much about that when we do have a limited number of guest rooms here.
Rebecca and Lucas, Sally and Joshua, and Gretchen and Brock are confirmed for the night; and we’ll have others around here for the study afternoon we have planned. Lucas and Rebecca might both miss the studying; but then they’d just be getting ready for their own exams anyway instead of working with us.
I can write about all of that with my next update, though, so let’s get back to the news from today and then I’m going to call it a night early and get some sleep.
As I mentioned, everything I did today was indoors except for the walks to and from school. It was a quiet day of classes, and we were given a lot of time to either finish up end-of-term projects or study for our exams. The rain kept us indoors at lunchtime, which was when we got serious about setting up a teen night at my house; so that did at least keep us entertained until we were back in our classes for the afternoon.
The parental approvals and work switches all happened fairly quickly after school; so it wasn’t long before I was temporarily friendless with nothing to do for the rest of the day except hang out at home with my family. We did that, had some fun before, during, and after dinner; and then I actually came up to bed before Ethan and Ehlana did – though I did have the ulterior motive of spending some quality time with my Jacuzzi before turning in for the night.
I felt a lot better after having that nice, long soak in the tub; and wasn’t motivated to do more than the basic email and computer checks before getting to this update.
None of that sounds particularly exciting or interesting; but I’m good with getting a full night of rest for a change; and I’m just going to wrap this up now and get right to that extended nap time.
Until next time...
...May the Magi Force be with you!
