Hi! It’s me! Lily!
So this morning I went off for a run, and when I got back, Maria had gone to work and Diana had gone to school. Sabby decided that everything was well in hand, as far as debris cleanup went, so we headed off to the temporary shelter to see if we could be of any help there. They had that well in hand too, so we went off and at least got some snacks for everyone. They seemed appreciated.
After we got home, we studied some more, and then Diana came back home. After we did our schooling, we spent a little time getting to know her. She seems like a nice kid. I don’t think she’s as smart as Beth or Crystal or Liz, but she’s pretty good at cooking!!! Much better than me and Beth! Sabby let her make a Mexican dinner, and she knocked it out of the park!!! So yummy!!! Maria came home and we all ate. Diana explained that sometimes she’d come home and her mother was still at work, so she made dinner. Seems like they have a bit of a tough life.
Well, a tornado doesn’t make it any better.
The NWS just released their assessment of the tornado – it was almost an EF-3!! Peak winds of 135mph! Wow!!!
So we’re going to watch a movie. We asked Maria what her favorite movie is. She liked Spanglish. I just checked back and we watched it on October 22 (this diary is handy sometimes!) and that’s when Liz confronted her parents, and that led directly to my meeting Jack and… well… Spanglish changed my life!!! I should tell Maria that!!!
Beth’s birthday is tomorrow!!! We’re having a party after Diana gets home from school! Crystal and Liz and Diana and even Mika and Aika will be there!!! It’ll be fun!!! And we’ll all sleep over too!!! It’ll be a HUGE girl-pile!!! Sorry jack!!!
