It may seem strange in other places to have the holiday on Sunday and a work day on Monday, but I’ve always loved that since moving here; and it works for us.
Work was the word of the day for me; which is why I’m going to keep this update short; though I don’t really have much to write about anyway.
I was up early to get to the Inn with Michael in time to help with the breakfast buffet; we kept busy with that until mid-morning; and then I took a break to go shopping with some of the girls in my family – including Dawn and Ehlana. That gave me time to get in on the sale at Palmers; I picked up a few outfits; and plan on wearing one of them tomorrow to our first day back at school. By eleven, I was back at the Inn; helping out with getting ready for the first of four buffets; and I worked most of the time from there until the Inn closed and we could go home at a bit before ten o’clock. Yes, I had breaks too, but spent one of them saying goodbye to our outbound weekend guests; and had dinner with Michael during the only other, longer break we took. It was a great day for Miranda and Jacob from a business perspective, though; so I was glad to help them out.
Michael and I had a bit of wind-down time at his house after work; but then I came home by eleven o’clock so that I could get ready for bed and deal with my bedtime work.
Resuming my language studies will have to wait for tomorrow night – or maybe Wednesday night; since I had too much family business work to deal with to add that in tonight too. I used a time phase for the work; and that’s the only way that I managed to get everything done before sunrise. It’s still past-one now; I’m exhausted; and need to get all of the sleep I can before getting started on our new school year.
There is lots of news that I’m not writing about for our family, but then I haven’t even heard most of that news tonight because everyone else in the house was in bed by the time I got home. With Ethan and Ehlana starting Kindergarten in the morning, it is going to be a big day for all of us tomorrow, so I might not even hear most of those stories anyway; and you might need to look elsewhere in the archives for better holiday reports from today. I can’t do anything about that, and really do need to crash now anyway; so, until next time...
...May the Magi Force be with you!
