Rowen and I didn’t stay up for very long after I finished my last update, so I was near full-power by morning – and needed that extra rest because it’s been a very long, busy day.
First up – the birthdays of the day.
Happy 17th Birthday, Brock; and Happy 3rd Birthday, Julian Green!
My involvement in Brock’s special day was restricted to the joint gift that Michael, Tim, Rowen, and I picked out for him and a lunchtime birthday party. He and Karla went to celebrate his birthday in Crystal Springs after school with a dinner and movie night out; so we didn’t have a party or anything to attend tonight. Julian’s birthday is being mentioned because he’s a future friend for some of our cousins; and I had absolutely no involvement in this birthday fun at all.
Other than the lunchtime fun; our school day was uneventful, but then maybe it just seemed that way after a busy morning of Tai Chi, breakfast for five girls, and the rest of our fun this morning while getting ready for school. The busy picked up a few notches for me after school. Michael and I did our homework; helped out with some work on the third floor of the Inn; and then worked the dinner shift. We didn’t stay for game night, but I did have a little chat with Mom when she arrived for game night with the twins – before I brought Michael home with me for some music and make-out play time. Yeah, we probably should have stayed for the gaming; but we were in need of some alone time too; so we picked that over the play time with family and friends.
We also had a Magi lesson with Mom once she got home again; took care of getting Ethan and Ehlana tucked in for the night with some bonus chat time with them; and then Michael went home while Mom and I both got to work in the office. We used a time phase for as much of the work as we could; did more in ‘real’ time; and then we came up to our rooms when Mom was finished her work. I still had more to get done, but that’s because I didn’t do enough work over the past two nights; and needed to get caught up ahead of the weekend.
That’s why I’m still up this late – and wishing I was sleeping two hours ago. I can’t get that nap time back, but can head off to dreamland now; so, until next time...
...May the Magi Force be with you!
