Cassie's Journal - December 23, 2016

Two more sleeps until Christmas; and we’re officially on our Christmas holidays for the next two weeks!  We’re also having a sleepover here with our best friends, and I’m doing this update during our break between working the close shift at the Inn and our first Christmas movie of the night; so I’ll need to keep it as short as possible.

We’ve had a dash of rain here and there today, but that didn’t get in the way of anything important before or after school; and the temperatures climbed into the forties again today – on the way to the sixties for Christmas Day.  The chances of a white Christmas are pretty much zero now; but maybe we’ll see a few snowflakes on Christmas Eve day before the big, one-day-only warm-up to fall or spring warm.

Mom and Dad went with another hot breakfast today; and we played while at school – whether that was holiday fun in our morning classes or while we had our Christmas parties in the afternoon.  We were also set free early; so Michael and I had time to hang out with Ethan, Ehlana, Naomi, and Aiden before getting ready for our dinner-to-close shift at the Inn to help out with the Christmas parties and normal Friday night business.  Speaking of parties, I missed out on the Christmas party at the lab this afternoon, but Mom, Ethan, and Ehlana were there for it; they had a lunch buffet that Jake and Stephanie catered for them; and a gift exchange that apparently included some nice Christmas bonuses.  Violet and Dillon were happy to be included for those bonuses; and were also glad to be set free early so they could hit the road for Woodvale.  They’ll be there for most of the weekend; but come back in time for dinner on Sunday with his family.  Uncle Mark, Aunt Grace, and the kids headed out of town early too; and they’ll be with her family for a three-day weekend.  While I’m thinking about family anyway; I’ll also add that while my family and Michael’s are having an away Christmas this year; the Johnson-McEwan clan is here for the holiday weekend – either already in town; or will be by late tomorrow morning.

The dinner shift at the Inn was busy, but not newsworthy.  Michael and I had fun with Jake and Stephanie again; though Rebecca and Jenny have more fun with Stephanie while they all work the dining room together.  I’m thinking about that more as I get closer to being able to work the dining room too, but I’m trying to keep this update shorter; so let’s not go there.  One good thing about the holiday weekend is that most diners were at the Inn early and we didn’t have a late rush when people either needed to hit the road or be home to welcome incoming guests; so we were done with the clean-up by nine o’clock.  Michael stopped for his overnight bag on the way to my house; I came on ahead; and Rowen and Tim were already here – and helping our four junior sleepover buddies with getting the lounge set up for the Christmas movie marathon.  They have the movies picked out; the snacks and drinks are ready; and we’ll start the first show as soon as we’re all ready for bed and back in the lounge.

I could be last to get there if I don’t hurry, so let’s do the Christmas music video pick; and then I’m out of here.  I’m going with another Christmas classic with an a Cappella take on the song – and my favorite for this year from this country band.

Okay, it’s time to get to the Christmas and first night of the holidays fun with my family and friends; so, until next time...

...May the Magi Force be with you!
