Cassie's Journal - April 20, 2016



Happy 16th Birthday, Brock!  Happy 2nd Birthday, Julian Green!

I had absolutely no involvement in Julian’s birthday at all, but his big day is being noted here because he will be a classmate and friend for one or more of my cousins; so we will have that future connection.  Brock’s birthday was a bigger deal for me – and our classmates and friends; though Michael and I didn’t go to his birthday party this year.  We did have a gift for him; and we had a party for him at lunch so that those of us that weren’t going to his party could have a mini-celebration with him; but then both the lunch and after-school parties were just bonuses for Brock because getting his license was a bigger deal for him.  That’ll be true for most of the guys in our class this year and quite a few of the girls too, but while I get that for the country kids that aren’t stuck on the farm anymore once they have that all-important piece of paper; it really isn’t that big of a deal for most town kids.  Okay, maybe if they have part time or summer jobs on one of the farms it comes in handy, but when it’s my turn; I don’t expect to be doing a lot of driving until I’m ready to start college.

Getting back to the update, though, I don’t have a lot of news for my day other than those bits of birthday fun; but Mom, Ethan, and Ehlana had quite the adventure – and I can even write about some of it here without the need for content warnings! ;^)

They got to the city by eleven o’clock; went shopping for a while; had lunch in the food court; and then did some more shopping before going on to the hotel.  By then, Mom and Angela had made dinner plans; and Ethan and Ehlana were also booked for a sleepover at the Malloys with Valerie and Marcus.  Marcus is a bit young to appreciate having kids staying for sleepovers, but Valerie was apparently thrilled to have Ehlana stay with her, and while I won’t write about what Mom and Dad did with their kid-free night at the hotel; but they were very happy campers too.  I missed out on a great meal out and the play time with the Malloys; but I’m glad that they all had fun.  Mom met up with Terry this morning to get Ethan and Ehlana back; they did some more shopping; and then picked up fast food for Aunt Leanne and came home in time to have lunch with her – and with Claire, Zack, and Brianna.  After that, Mom had work to do around home, so she did that while the twins spent the afternoon at KidZone; and then the four of us were home for the rest of the day together so that we could all either work or study in the office – or both in my case.

We did a lot of that work and studying while in a time phase; and that’s why I’m able to write this so early tonight – while I’m multi-tasking my bedtime computing with a nice hot soak in the Jacuzzi.  Mom’s having some tub time right now too; but Ethan and Ehlana actually ran out of steam and are sleeping already.  Since I’ve been the one running on empty most of the time lately, that’s a bit surprising; though they’re already better for that than I was even a few years ago.  That’s at least partly a twin thing, but Mom has also fine-tuned her Magi training; and that makes a difference on days when they do lessons too.

Speaking of lessons, I’m still not doing any with Mom right now, but I should mention that I do fit in time for my self-directed studies and archive reading – even if that isn’t nearly enough right now.  Maybe I’ll work on making up for that this summer; but we’ll see how that goes.  Mom will want to start doing lessons with me again too; so I’ll need to work that back into my schedule – as if I don’t have enough on the go already.  If only I could just stay in a time phase all day every day; I’d have no trouble keeping up with everything! ;^)

There are so many reasons for why that isn’t possible, but the first mental picture I got with that thought was one of me returning to real time a year from now a decade or three older than everyone else my age; and then trying to explain that to our friends and neighbors – or even funnier; if the entire town had been in the time phase with me and we’re all a lot older compared to our friends outside of town.

Okay, non-stop time phasing won’t help; so I’ll just have to find another way!

I’m not going to do that tonight, though; I don’t have any other news to write about; and it’s time for me to get out of the tub and ready for bed now; so, until next time...

...May the Magi Force be with you!
