Hi! It’s me! Lily!
I’m full of cookies. I mean seriously full of cookies. Sabby seriously overbaked for Christmas, and we’ve been slowly whittling down the cache. We’re making a dent in it, but it’s slow going. I love chocolate, but this is ridiculous! We gave another batch to Liz’s family, and even dropped some off at Crystal’s, and we’re still swimming in cookies. I think next year we’re gonna hold an intervention. there’s cookies, and then there’s cookies. I never thought I’d be tired of cookies, but I’m tired of cookies!
Oh well, good problem to have, I suppose.
Jack and I have been chatting. It’s a little different now that we’ve made it “official”. He tells me a little more than he used to – he’s still the same Jack, but he’s letting me in a little more, and it’s sweet. He’s a nice guy. But he has his problems too. I’m not going to go into them here, but he has his problems. I have my problems too. Sabby keeps telling me how trusting and afraid of abandonment I am, and I guess she’s right. I really don’t like it. But I guess it’s just something I have to work on. Jack keeps reassuring me he’s not going anywhere. I believe him.
I was looking up Ohio on Google Maps. He lives near Columbus, but there are other cities too, and they all seem a bit dingy. There’s Cleaveland, and Cincinati, Toledo, Dayton… and they’re all losing population. Here in Texas where I live it’s been booming, so many people moving here. I see California plates everywhere. I read that Columbus is growing in Ohio, but nowhere else is. But he seems to like it there. I guess I’d like the rain – they seem to get more rain. And I’ve never seen snow except for in pictures, it seems pretty. I’d throw a snowball at Jack! Then he’d throw a snowball at me and we’d have a snowball fight! Then we’d go back into the house and snuggle up and have hot chocolate by the fire… mmm… sounds really nice.
Anyway, this is a random post. New Years Eve is tomorrow night and as I said, we might not do too much, but maybe we’ll eat a lot of cookies. It’s not like we’re going to run out. I really need to have a talk with that woman!
