Cassie's Journal - March 14, 2017

I know there are other places getting hit by a snowstorm this week, but this is supposed to be Spring Break; and it’s a bit early for April Fool’s Day jokes!

That comment is for you, Mother Nature! ;^)

Michael only gets two days off this week; and this was the second of them.  The snow pretty much melted on Sunday, so the cold weather just means that it’s too cold to play outside; and that’s made for a bit of a boring day compared to the kind of fun we’d like to be having while on our break from school.  We did have fun spending time with his parents today; and we had some play time with the twins, Naomi, and Aiden this morning too; but it was all quiet fun – just as our movie night and sleepover was quiet and not particularly-exciting entertainment.

I should back up and write about that for a moment; so let’s do that.

The kids wanted to watch the new Tangled television special; and I’ll guess that Disney has another hit new kids’ series to go along with Sofia and Elena if their reaction is any indication.  They loved the story and songs; so I’m sure they’ll be watching the new series when it starts in a couple of weeks.  We also watched the latest Elena episode; and then it was time for the first teen-pick movie after that.  We didn’t have school to worry about, so staying up late was an option; and the kids watched movies with us until they crashed into nap mode sometime between midnight and one o’clock.  Michael and I took care of getting them tucked in for the night; and then we watched another movie with Rowen and Tim after that.  A sofa sleepover was very tempting, but Michael and I didn’t do that; and the boys went off to their own guest rooms after we cleaned up the lounge and Michael and I took care of the bit of dishwashing that needed to be done in the kitchen – which allowed us to take care of the goodnight hugs and kisses while we were on our own too.

Tai Chi and breakfast with our friends was a great way to start the day today, and as I already mentioned; Michael and I had fun playing with Ethan, Ehlana, Naomi, and Aiden this morning – though Rowen and Tim eventually moved on to other plans instead of hanging out with us.  Michael and I went over to his house in time for lunch; and spent the rest of the day with his parents.  Rebecca was out at the farm with Lucas for a lot of the day; so we didn’t spend much time with her.  Violet and Dillon got home this afternoon, but they were busy anyway; so I wouldn’t have spent more than a few minutes with them even if I had been home.  Mom, Ethan, and Ehlana were at the lab for the afternoon anyway; and Michael and I were overdue for some non-work time with his family.  I’ll be able to spend more time with Mom and the twins once Michael’s back to work tomorrow; though they’ll be working at the lab while Violet and Dillon are home too – so I may need to go over there to do that with them.

I stayed with Michael until ten o’clock; came home after that because he’s working the breakfast shift with his father; and I did a Magi lesson with Mom before taking care of getting the twins into bed on my way up to my room – and the Jacuzzi time I wanted to get to next.  A time phase and multi-tasking were involved as I had a long soak in the tub, but I also had lots of work to do in ‘real’ time too; which is why I’m having another late night.  Yes, I’ll be able to do family business work during the day tomorrow while Michael’s busy anyway; but there’s always more to do – and a lot that I want to get done this week.

That won’t happen tomorrow if I don’t get some sleep now, though, and sleeping in until noon isn’t an option for me; so, until next time...

...May the Magi Force be with you!
