HI! It’s me! Lily!!!

I’m pregnant!!!

Hahaha!!! I’m not!  April fools!  I didn’t have time to think of something fun so that’s about all I could come up with.

Sabby got a little mad at me for posting anyway.  She says sometimes I skip nights, so it wouldn’t have mattered if I skipped a night.  I said it really didn’t matter, and she kind of ran off and slammed the door.  She hasn’t taken a bath because of me in a while.  She didn’t even go off on me, she just turned around without a word.

I think that hurt worse.

Finally she came in my room, and told me something like “You’re sad because you’re going to have a lot of lasts, how do you think I feel?”

And now I feel awful.

I mean, this was the last Easter we’ll spend together for a while.  And that’s what Sabby was protecting.  We made up, but I guess I need to be a little more careful.

Sabby offered to cater Joe and Anathema’s wedding.  She can’t offer gourmet food, but she can make the cake and some sweet treats.  They accepted gratefully.  They really don’t want anything fancy, just something meaningful.  And that’s good, because Sabby and I can only afford so much.  But we’re not in disagreement about any of it.

Sabby and I rarely have those kinds of issues with the business.  Yeah, we disagree sometimes, but each of us knows that the other has the best interests of the business at heart, so we work through it.  I haven’t been able to spend all that much time there lately, though, and I’ll probably become a “silent” partner by the time I go to Japan, but Sabby’s pretty competent, it’ll work out.

We had a really nice feast yesterday, after we went to church, and…  it was a nice day.  Even if I did piss off Sabby.  Today, though…  I just practiced.  A lot.  I have to make up for lost time.

Miki had an Easter concert.  In typical Japanese style, they didn’t mention “He is risen” or have a cross or anything like that, but they did dress up in bunny suits (you know, the moderately ecchi kind that are skin tight leotards, fishnets, and bunny ears with a puffy tail) and ran around the stage collecting eggs.  I saw a video.  It was somehow cute and hot all at the same time.  Which, I guess…  that’s Japanese idol culture for you.

It got really funny when two idols found the egg at the same time and started fighting over it…  let’s just say the producer wasn’t to anxious for them to stop, all that was missing was pudding…


Anyway, I gotta go.  Much to do this week.  And some storms are fixin’ to come…

Love you all!!! ❤️

From the creator:

I haven’t seen a concert like that.  But it’s not out of the realm of possibility, by any means.  It’s exactly the kind of thing Japanese idols would do…  they love a good western holiday, but only for its outward trappings.  It has no real meaning to them, and they seem fine with that.
