Thanks to a warm-weather start to our day; Tai Chi was outdoors and by the river today!
We barely dodged the start of the rain to do that; and then it rained most of the morning and into the early-afternoon before clearing up again. That made the walk to school a bit damp, but we were indoors for the rest of the rain-time; so it didn’t affect us after that – other than giving some of my classmates something different to stare at while only half-paying attention to our lessons and enjoying a bit of daydreaming instead. I had fun at school, but Michael and I had a really great afternoon and evening after we were set free from school for the day.
Most of the park trails were too muddy for biking, but we did go for a ride after getting home and having a visit with our parents, Ethan, and Ehlana. Rowen and Tim went for that ride with us; we got our homework out of the way after that bit of a break; and we did that at Michael’s house because I was having dinner there tonight so that we could have some non-work time with his parents, Rebecca, and Lucas. The family time was great; and the experimental gourmet dinner was one of the reasons for why I am never, ever going to break up with Michael! ;^)
After dinner, Michael and I helped with the clean-up; we had a music practice to get ready for our band and praise team practices tomorrow night; and then we had a very minor make-out session before wrapping up our evening with an hour of television and chat time with his parents, sister, and Lucas. I came home at ten-thirty; Lucas likely stayed for a while longer to have some alone time with Rebecca after Jacob, Miranda, and Michael headed up to bed; and although I’d have liked to spend more time with Michael; I also needed to do a Magi lesson with Mom; spend some time with her and Dad while he worked in the office; and then I came up to my room to get started on my own work and studies.
It was heading toward midnight by then, and I had to do more than two hours of work and studying in real time; so it’s past-three again as I write this; and I’m pretty much fried and ready to crash for the night. The work is a bit challenging right now because there is a lot of weird going on in the world. It would be nice to just look into the future and make all of my business decisions based on what I can see with the Sight, but that would just drive me crazy to try to do that for everything; so I just have to deal with every situation as problems and opportunities are put on my plate.
I don’t really want to go there when sleep is beckoning me in a ‘right now’ sort of way. There isn’t any news to add either, though I am expecting wedding and engagement-related stories to catch up to me soon; and I should probably do a local update of what’s going on with our future plans. That can wait for a night when I’m not exhausted, though; so, until next time...
...May the Magi Force be with you!
