Tai Chi by the river was great; the gourmet breakfast at Michael’s was awesome; and we had a fun morning at church. It was tough saying goodbye to our cousins after that, but then Michael and I needed to rush that and then get to the Inn and started on the prep work for the lunch rush.
We worked our tails off; didn’t officially work through our afternoon break while cleaning guest rooms upstairs; and then the non-stop, hot, and exhausting work continued through until close – with the hot being in the kitchen thanks to another triple-digit weather day. When we could get home, Michael and I went for a swim while Rebecca only stopped in for an overnight bag; and then she headed out to the farm with Lucas. I would have loved to do another sofa sleepover with Michael; but had work to get done here; so I came home after the swim and got to it – as soon as I had a bedtime chat with Mom, Dad, and the twins. Dad will be in the city next week, but he’d still be working in the office because he’d taken a bit too much time off during the rest of the weekend – and had a few short days last week too.
It was heading toward midnight by the time I showered and got changed and into bed with Mandy; and that was a bit more than three hours ago – in real time. Add in hours more for the time-phased work. Dad will be getting up soon and ready for his trip, but I’m going to wrap this up and have a little nap before seeing him off.
This isn’t going to rate high on a best-ever kind of summer day, but they can’t all be filled with non-stop adventure – especially when some of us have a college education to pay for sooner instead of later!
That’s a topic for another day when I’m not desperately in need of some sleep; so, until next time...
...May the Magi Force be with you!
