Congratulations, Colt and Wendy Carter!
I wasn’t at the second big wedding of the summer, but the Carter and Reynolds’ families were celebrating today – and did that out on the ranch because they had a very large party!
My day wasn’t nearly that exciting for the yard work that I spent most of the day doing; or the dinner shift that I worked at the Inn while Michael needed to be off for his first ballgame of the season. I would have liked to be there to cheer for him instead, but he wasn’t the only dishwasher needing the time off; so I drafted myself to help Jacob in the kitchen while he was short-staffed. Michael and Tim’s team, the Witch Falls Werewolves, played the ValleyView Vampires tonight, and since they won fairly-convincingly by a score of seventeen-to-ten; I’d say they did okay without a major cheerleading section. Rowen did go to the game, and went for a swim with Michael, Tim, and some of the other teens after the game; but then Michael came back to the Inn while Tim and Rowen went to do their own thing for a while until we closed the Inn for the night.
Ethan, Ehlana, Naomi, and Aiden wanted a bonus camping night, so Michael and I met up with Tim and Rowen once we were set free from the Inn; we went to my house; and took over kid control from Mom and Dad after that. Some of us went for a swim then; we followed that up with a campfire; and then put the fire out at eleven-thirty because we had orders to have the kids in their sleeping bags before midnight. We managed to do that; Michael, Tim, Rowen, and I then only sat by the river and talked for another half-hour or so; and then we turned in for the night too.
I was only planning on an email check and this update, but the family business work intruded again tonight; so Rowen fell asleep before I got it finished. I am still working the full shift at the Inn tomorrow, and need to get what sleep I can now; so that’s all I’ve got for tonight.
There was a bit too much work, but wrapping the day up with the play and camping fun has been good; and I do have a really great cuddle buddy to sleep with – even if that would be more fun with Michael instead. That isn’t happening, and I don’t want to go there and end up staying awake thinking about that too much; so, until next time...
...May the Magi Force be with you!
