Hi! It’s me! Lily!
Well, things are a little bit back to normal now, I guess. Jack registered for school today, and he’ll be starting soon, so he has to get his supplies and all that kinda thing. He told me he was a bit jealous that I got to go to community college, and I told him it’s hard, and besides I have to drive a lot further than he does. The school is about a half mile from him as the crow flies, but he’s on the other side of the tollway, so that’s a little bit of a production. Oh well, he’ll figure it out. I hope starting fresh will give him the chance to make new friends. Heck, I don’t even mind if he makes female friends, as long as he’s very clear on who gets to date him and who doesn’t.
He doesn’t seem the type to wander, so it’ll be fine.
I told him that he has my permission to say he has a girlfriend in college if it will give him a little “street cred”. He blushed, but he might do that. I think that’s funny!!
Anyway, other news, I guess. There’s not much of it. I’m just going to school and doing other lessons with Sabby and… I might have some news soon! Still working on some details. Aww. Guess you’ll have to wait, but it’s okay! I’ll tell you soon!
Beth is really kind of jealous of me with Jack, to the point where Sabby had to sit her down and tell her that she’s too young yet, and her time will come, and to snap out of it because her jealousy is one of the worst things about her. They had a bit of a yelling match, but that’s not unusual. She went stomping up to her room and that’s where she is now. But she’ll get over it. She’ll turn sixteen soon and then she can find a boy and date him and learn that it’s not as easy as it looks. Speaking of boys, Liz has her date this weekend, and she wants me to meet him.
I’m sure he’ll be fine.
Liz isn’t dumb, it’s just that the heart sometimes wants what it wants, when the mind says “whoa, hold up there, this isn’t a good idea”.
Oh, Sabby wants to send a tin of cookies to our “benefactor”, and wants to know how to deliver them.
Anyway, bedtime. Other than Beth flying off the handle, it’s been a pretty quiet day. I like quiet days. Hopefully nothing soap-opera-ey will happen for a little while.
