I have to get up and ready for a bus ride and football game in a few hours; so let’s keep this short; and I’ll try to fill in the blanks tomorrow night.
Tai Chi by the river was early and chilly; breakfast with our gang here at home was crazy and busy and a lot of fun; and then Michael and I split our morning between my house, his, and a handful of others as we did some visiting and played when we weren’t helping out with the work or kid control with our cousins and other kids. We attended the early Thanksgiving dinner at Michael’s house; the late one at mine; and had a gang of kids with us – and a bunch of other teen and adult helpers for an afternoon play time at the park that was between the end of the clean-up at Michael’s house and the start of dinner at mine.
We were on the clean-up crew after dinner for both meals; watched some football; and a Christmas movie with the kids and teens in the lounge.
Michael went home at ten o’clock; I stayed up for a second movie; and then had a bit of work to do before getting to this update because apparently the family business doesn’t just take the holidays off – especially when this isn’t even a holiday in most countries of the world. Doing that work and a bit of computing that included a bit of online Black Friday shopping has kept me up too late; which is why I’m going to just wrap this up without going into the details from today.
The busses will be leaving in about three hours, and I’ll need time to get ready; packed for the day; and over there in time to help load up the band and cheerleading gear; so it’s definitely time to go into nap mode while I can still do that. Some self-healing will likely be needed too, but I’ll keep you posted on that – and you can flip the digital page to find out anyway while I get back to living the life you’re reading about whenever you’re doing this in my future.
It has been a really amazing first day of the holiday weekend, though; and I hope we’ll continue that trend tomorrow with a football championship win!
That is the least the boys can do for us when we are giving up our Black Friday shopping day for them! ;^)
Okay, that’s it, and I really have to go now; so, until next time...
...May the Magi Force be with you!
