Hi! It’s me! Lily!
Another nice and quiet day. It’s about time I had a few of those in a row, don’t you think? Well, mostly quiet. Beth is still in a snit. She’s not a bad girl but she has a jealous streak the size of Texas.
I had to take her to school today, so in the car, I had a talk with her – while she couldn’t leave. Haha. I asked her why she doesn’t want me to be happy.
She said she wants me to be happy, she just wants to be happy too.
So I asked her why she thinks finding a boy would make her happy. After all, I didn’t even want a boyfriend until Jack came along.
Long and short, I think she’s lonely.
Yes, she does have more friends than she did, or at least better friends, but she’s a quiet girl who prefers to read a book than do “friend” stuff, and… I think there’s something she needs and is missing. I’ll have to talk to Sabby about it. She almost seems desperate and that’s… not good.
I wonder if Sabby’s attempt at a “friend dating service” did more harm than good, actually. Maybe Beth got the wrong message out of that. I dunno. Poor Beth.
I did tell her she’s my sister and will always be my sister, and… it’s not personal, I guess. She doesn’t hate Jack, or me, she’s just jealous of me.
It’s hot again. Booooo!!!
Jack starts school on Monday. He’s a little nervous. I think he’ll be fine. Texas is not Ohio.
Well, I’m going to take Marie for a walk and brush Beth’s hair. Yes, we still do that. Even if she’s in a snit.
