It’s been another very long day, so I’m going to keep this as brief as possible; and then get on the couple of hours of nap time I’ll manage before getting started again on another big day of work and studying.
Most of my day has been spent studying, including at school; and at home both before and after dinner. The main breaks in all of that were during Tai Chi and three meal breaks; and then a little visit with the parents, Violet, and Dillon before bedtime. My language studies and family business work hasn’t been a break – just a change in study subjects that were also quite a bit more challenging.
The fun highlight of my day was definitely dinner; and that’s because Mom and Dad had invited Michael’s family – mostly so that they could all spend that time with Michael on their day off; and also with Violet, Dillon, and the rest of our family. That made for a fairly diverse dinner conversation that ranged from weddings and the Inn expansion project to bridges and engineering. For some reason, there wasn’t much talk about law; but Dad and Angela are used to that anyway – and she was happy to talk about babies and kids instead anyway.
Speaking of weddings, the work and planning continues for Jake and Stephanie’s wedding; though Rebecca and I are not involved in any of that again until after our exams are finished. We do feel a bit left out, but can’t do everything; and Miranda hasn’t given us any choice anyway. We’ll still have nearly two months available to help out starting the weekend after next, though; and we will be getting more involved.
There has been a lot going on today that I’ve been out of the loop on, and while I’m not going to get too much into the details; let’s cover the basics. Mom, Ethan, and Ehlana have been busy entertaining Angela and the kids, but they spent some time at the lab today too; and then spent the rest of the day playing – including some ‘fun’ shopping, lunch at the Inn with the Dads, and an afternoon visit to the park. All of that was probably more fun than Dad’s work in the office or Terry’s meetings and mucking around at the river, and while their work was more important; I’ll spare you the boring details. On the bridge project side of that, the only important news is that the town officials are happy with Terry’s work so far; and the prep work is on-schedule. Dad’s work news would just put most people to sleep, but while I don’t mention it often enough; he does take care of all of those little legal details for everything we’re doing around here through the family business – and making sure that we don’t get bogged down with legal or government red tape.
Okay, I really do want to keep this short, and there isn’t anything else particularly important to add tonight, so that’s all for now; and, until next time...
...May the Magi Force be with you!
