Okay, it’s been a long, busy day; and I have a lot to cover; but this is going to be short too because I’m going to be awake and back at it before I get to sleep if I don’t get started on my nap soon.
The weather was pretty nice around here by this afternoon, but too cool for Tai Chi this morning. School was fun, but uneventful; and the busy part of my day started once we were set free. Uncle Terry is here for a work visit about the bridge, but while Aunt Angela couldn’t come this time; he did bring Valerie and Marcus – and Mom took care of the kids while he was busy with his meetings this afternoon. Michael and I spent some time with them too – and with Ethan and Ehlana; but we also needed to do our homework; help with cooking dinner; eat; and then help with the clean-up before going with our Moms to the marching band committee meeting.
The big news there is that the main fundraiser we’ll be doing between now and the trip to Florida was finalized – for everything from the contents of the fruit and vegetable boxes to the price and order forms. Those order forms are already printed and ready to go for our first practice next week. We’ll have the first couple of weeks of every month to get orders and renew orders; and the boxes will be delivered at the end of the month. We’ll also be switching to monthly meetings instead of weekly starting with next Monday’s meeting; but that won’t free up much time of my schedule because we’ll be replacing that with our new marching band practices beginning next Tuesday – which for some of us will be between concert band practice and teen praise team practice.
Michael came home with me after the meeting so that we could work on our music for those practices tomorrow, and while we have more time than normal to get ready for Memorial Day weekend services and the parade; we aren’t taking a break at all. We had four spectators for our music play time; we took care of getting them into bed after that; and then Michael went home so that I could come up to my room again and get started on my work and studying. I had a major project proposal to deal with for the family business; so it’s ended up being way too many hours of computer time to get everything done tonight. I did get there, though; so now I just have to figure out how to get through another day without much sleep.
I’ll let you know how that goes with the next update – if I don’t end up sleeping through Tuesday instead, but that’s it for now; so, until next time...
...May the Magi Force be with you!
