Hi! It’s me! Lily!
It’s Saturday, but I can’t run today! It’s storming! BOY is it storming! It’s storming so hard that the storms have storms! BOOM!!! BOOM!!!! HAHAHA!!!
But it’s good. We don’t get a lot of rain here, it all comes in big bursts like this, then fills up all the reservoirs and we get to drink for another few months!
So I didn’t write last night. We had a family night, and it was the last night that Crystal would get to spend with us for the holidays, and, well, we did family stuff. We played games, and watched a movie, and Crystal was sad that she’d have to go. I gave her a hug and told her that she’d even be my sister if she was somewhere else, and she just glomped me. And she hugged Beth too! I don’t know if she’s quite as close with Beth, but they’re getting along great now. That’s all we ever wanted for Beth. And, truthfully, it’s all we wanted for Crystal too. Would she have revealed what she did if she didn’t feel safe? I haven’t asked her, but I don’t think so. She’ll come back after the holidays and we’ll do more school! Soon she’ll have a house, and then I guess her parents will have to decide whether to keep this arrangement or send her back to public school. I kind of hope they don’t send her back to public school. She pretends to be strong, but she’s a little fragile.
Jack’s really being cagey. He says his family is going somewhere for the holidays, but he refuses to say where. I know I can trust him, but he doesn’t usually keep things from me! I hope he tells me soon, it’s driving me nuts! And he hasn’t said anything about my present either!!! AAAARRRGGG!!! I have to figure out what to get him, but he hasn’t told me his address yet. What a mess! I know if he were here what I’d give him! But I’d love it too!!!
I guess they’re going wherever it is tomorrow, though. I hope he tells me when he gets there!
Well, I’d better shower and get off to do some doot dooting and karen wrangling!!! I’m not taking any time off for the holidays – I only work weekends anyway. I might even ask for a few extra hours, since I’m on break. The owner has a few other employees, but he always seems grateful for whatever we can give him! What we don’t work, he has to!
I think I’ll post again tonight, since I didn’t last night! We’ll see!!!
