Happy 4th Birthday, Valerie!
For the second day in a row, my only involvement in a birthday was through a breakfast phone call. Mom and Dad left Valerie’s gifts with her parents last week, so she opened them while we talked with her; and she was a very happy camper by the time we ended our call to make way for other incoming best birthday wishes calls. The Malloys had a busy day planned for their kids, family, and friends; and I’ll guess that they’re all worn out by now – though I haven’t heard the stories yet.
My school day was pretty good, if not very exciting; and then I came home to work once we were set free and Michael moved on to his football practice. I worked in the office; used a time phase; and got all of my studying and work finished by dinnertime. Ethan and Ehlana worked in the office with me – studied; and Mom split her time between the office and kitchen so that she could cook dinner too. While I didn’t help with the cooking; I did take care of the clean-up after we had our meal in the sunroom; and then the twins and Silkie came with me for a walk around town that included some front porch visits on our way to the Inn to meet up with Michael.
He didn’t need to work until close; so we were home again by eight o’clock. We did our homework first; had a Magi lesson with Mom; followed that up with some music play time in my room; and then we took care of getting Ethan and Ehlana tucked in for the night. That didn’t leave us much time for any sort of quality make-out time; so I ‘made’ time for that with a time phase before sending Michael on his way home at ten-thirty. I had a bedtime chat with Mom and Dad on my way up to my room again; had a nice soak in my Jacuzzi; and did a bit of surfing on the web along with the usual bedtime computer and email checks. With my work and studying finished early; going to bed before midnight is an option that I plan on taking advantage of tonight. I’m sure to have a few late nights ahead of me through the weekend; and I’ll need the extra rest now.
That’s going to be especially important for me tomorrow, but I’ll save that news for the next update; and just wrap up this report without dragging it out – especially since you can just flip the digital page to read on anyway. Cliff-hangers don’t work when you can do that, and I don’t have a good one to offer anyway; so, until next time...
...May the Magi Force be with you!
