Happy 16th Birthday, Lily!
It’s heading toward four o’clock now; so this is going to be a short update.
Tai Chi was indoors thanks to the much colder temperatures today, but it is December; so I won’t be one of the snowflakes complaining about a couple of cold days. It is moderately funny that nobody ever complains about the days that are too-warm for the season!
Moving along, the only news from school today is the ongoing practices for the pageant; Lily’s noontime birthday fun; and her graduation to the ranks of the next-level drivers club. Lily’s parents threw a sweet-sixteen party for her too, and Michael and I stopped in for a visit and to drop off a gift; but we didn’t do that until after we finished working the dinner shift at the Inn. We needed to do that because quite a few teens needed the night off for a birthday party they were attending; and Miranda needed the extra hands in the kitchen. I wasn’t drafted or anything; but volunteered instead of going to the party without Michael.
I really do want to make this quick; so Michael and I worked until a bit after seven; spent an hour at Lily’s house by the time we made the rounds and could head out again; and then we came back to my house to get our studying done – along with a music practice and a minor snogging session that ended when Mom and Dad got home with the twins from game night. Mom did a Magi lesson with Michael and me; he went home at a quarter after eleven; and then I got to work on my studying and family business jobs. Getting all of that done took longer than I’d hoped, but I am ready to take the weekend off as much as possible; so it will be worth losing the sleep over.
That doesn’t mean that I don’t still want all of the rest I can get, though; so let’s wrap this up so that I can do that right now.
My Christmas music video pick for the day is a new, original Christmas song from a favorite a Cappella artists on YouTube. Michael and I have fun with his songs; and have added this one to our Christmas favorites this year.
Have fun with that while I’m off to start my short winter’s nap; and, until next time...
...May the Magi Force be with you!
