Cassie's Journal - December 31, 2017

Happy New Year’s Eve Day!

This update is coming to you early because I’m on my afternoon break from the Inn; am getting ready for the New Year’s Eve dinner and party there; and don’t plan on doing any computing later tonight – possibly because I’ll bring Michael home and keep him for a sofa sleepover! ;^)

We had a fun morning that included helping out with a major breakfast at Uncle Adam and Aunt Leanne’s house; Michael and I were busy at church with the teen praise team for the first part of the last service of twenty-seventeen; and then we headed straight for the Inn to get ready for the lunch buffet.  Miranda decided to do that today since we’re only having the one buffet sitting as part of the New Year’s Eve party tonight; and we had a full house for lunch – as well as a sold-out Inn for the dinner and party tonight.

That means I worked my tail off at lunch and will do the same tonight, but we’ll manage to fit in some fun along the way – even if that has to wait for the sofa sleepover part of our celebration of the New Year!  I’ll have to write about all of that tomorrow night, though, since I need to finish getting ready and then head back to the Inn soon; so that’s all I have for the last update of this year.

It has been an awesome year, but twenty-eighteen is going to be amazing as Michael and I finish high school and then move on to college; so there’s a lot to look forward to – starting with the party tonight and that sofa sleepover with Michael! ;^)

I need to get back to the real world to do all of that, though; so, until next YEAR...

...May the Magi Force be with you!

Congratulations, Josiah and Christina Palmer!

I’m going to leave most of the wedding report to others to write about in their own Magi journals, since it’s really late; and I just want to get this done and crash and nap for a while.

My day began with the breakfast shift at the Inn; I worked late into the morning to help with cleaning rooms after the main breakfast rush was finished; and then I helped out at home while also getting ready for the wedding ceremony.  Michael and I needed to be at the church early; we helped out with the music; and sang a duet while the wedding party was busy signing the usual paperwork that makes a marriage official.  The ceremony was beautiful; Josiah and Christina are blissfully happy; and I won’t get started on the issues that went along with a winter wedding when temperatures were bitterly-cold – even during the afternoon.

After the ceremony; Michael and I needed to rush over to the Inn and get back to work.  The Palmers and McEwans had the main dining room booked for the reception; we had a full house between that party and the regular customers that we squeezed into the small dining rooms until we ran out of space.  I worked the wedding, and had a lot of fun doing that; but we had hours of busy in the kitchen and dining rooms before the wedding reception started; and then I didn’t stop working at all through until a bit after nine-thirty except for a short break to grab a drink and snack with Michael in between delivering the main course of the dinner and dessert.  We were done serving dinner to the public by nine; had the smaller dining rooms cleared out shortly after that; and then we concentrated on the reception for the rest of the night.  Josiah and Christina wrapped up their time at the party with an hour-long blast of cameo visits with their guests; and then they were on the road for their airport hotel by a bit after midnight.

The party started to wind down after that; it was past-one by the time the proud parents thanked Miranda and Jacob and headed home; and then it took us until a bit after two o’clock to get set up for our next meal sitting on Sunday – and have the library ready for the self-serve breakfast that our guests at the Inn will enjoy tomorrow – in a few hours.  We walked home; I said goodnight to Michael outside of his house; and we made short work of that kiss and hug because it was too cold to be outdoors as the negative temperatures are dropping deep into the double digits tonight.  Everyone here has long-since been sleeping; and I didn’t even check in on the twins on my way up to bed.  I got changed; into bed with Mandy; and have only done the basic bedtime computing.

This doesn’t sound like a very exciting report when it’s been such a brilliant day for some of our favorite people, but a lot of people need to do the work that goes into a successful wedding and reception; and I’m okay with being on the work side of these big events now and then.  Michael and I are going to be on the work side of the New Year’s Eve day fun at the Inn too; which is why I should be sleeping by now.  For more of the fun details of the wedding, check out the journals for the happy couple and other Magi in their families, and while you do that; I’ll get started on my nap.

Until next time...

...May the Magi Force be with you!

It’s late, I need to be up early again for the breakfast shift at the Inn; and this is going to be another short update.

Michael and I worked the breakfast shift this morning; I spent most of my ‘free’ time babysitting kids from all of our families while the parents and grandparents were busy with wedding work; and then I worked the dinner shift at the Inn too.  I didn’t work until close tonight because I was back on babysitting duty during the rehearsal dinner and party; Michael joined me to help with that after closing the Inn; and we were busy with that until a bit after one o’clock.

He walked me home, but didn’t stay; I took care of a bit of work on my computer after getting changed and into bed with Mandy; and now I’m ready to have some quality nap time – though getting enough sleep isn’t really an option now.

I’ve skipped all of the wedding details that I wasn’t really involved in anyway, but I did have fun playing with the kids tonight while out of the loop for the fun with Christina and Josiah.  Other Magi are sure to write about all of that this weekend, though; so there will be lots of other sources to read if you want all of the details for the biggest Magi wedding of the year!

For me, I just need to sleep, and the details of my day are a bit boring anyway; so, until next time...

...May the Magi Force be with you!

Cassie's Journal - December 28, 2017

This is to be a double update, but I’m about to start an early sofa sleepover with Michael too; so it’s going to be very short too.

For yesterday, I did chores around home in the morning; helped Aunt Leanne at her house all afternoon as she gets ready for the wedding and holiday weekend guests; and then had fun last night with the movies and sofa sleepover.  The end of my day wasn’t teen-rated hot with two junior camping buddies in the room with Michael and me, but we still had a good night; and that’s really important to me right now as we continue the countdown to when I’ll be off to college and away from Ethan and Ehlana for a lot of the next five years starting this coming summer.

My wake-up call this morning was fun; Michael and I worked the breakfast shift; and then we both helped out with more wedding-related chores all day until we went back to work the dinner shift at the Inn.  We did that so others can get more time off this week before we’ll all be busy on the weekend again, but then it wasn’t all that busy at the Inn tonight anyway.  This update is coming to you not long after we got home; I’m multi-tasking my bedtime computing with getting ready for our sofa sleepover; and we won’t have junior campers with us tonight – though they are hanging out together again tonight – at Naomi’s house.

There will be some quality make-out time involved in the Michael and me alone time, but we need to actually get some sleep too; since we are going to be very busy between now and next Tuesday.

I don’t want to let this update take any time away from that Michael and me alone time – or the sleep, and that’s all I have anyway; so, until next time...

...May the Magi Force be with you!

I’m about to start a movie night and sofa sleepover with Michael, Ethan, Ehlana, Naomi, and Aiden; so instead of including an air-update; I’ll go with a double-update tomorrow night and go have fun with my boyfriend and our four favorite junior playmates!

Until next time...

...May the Magi Force be with you!
