Hi!  It’s me!  Lily!

And we had a PICNIC!!!

The whole group went over to a park today!  Liz and her parents, my family, Crystal and her family, and Maria and Diana.  Oh and Emiko and her family also came by!!!  Allison and her parents too!!!  After work Sabby came to pick me up and took me to the picnic too!  Dave and Bill and Liz’s father and Crystal’s father all stood around the grill and grilled!!!  OMG so much food!!!!

And after we ate, we played games!!!  We played tag!  And volleyball!  And badminton!!!  And a fun game where Dave was “it” but didn’t know it, so we kept running from him!  HAHAHAHA!!!!

So we played and ran around and had fun until it got dark!!!  Emiko and her family are going to stick around the area and go to that indoor waterpark tomorrow!  I wish I could go too but I have to work.  They’ll come over later tomorrow and we’ll have some “family” time.  Well, both families, I guess.  They do have a waterpark in Houston but not that!!  I just learned the one here is the third largest in the US!!!


But the picnic was fun too!  Sooo much fun!!!  I’m glad Emiko and her family can have some fun here too.  I don’t know how I feel about Emiko and Bill and Aika and Mika sometimes, but they’re a family too, like mine, and they deserve to have family time too, right?

Honestly, Houston doesn’t have that kind of waterpark!!!  It’s only here!  In my city!!! I’m a lucky girl!!!

Well, I’m lucky in many ways.  Many, many ways.  For the low, low price of all my memories before I was 14.


I… I don’t know whether to be happy or sad when I think about that.

I lost sooo much.  But I gained sooo much too.  And I don’t know if I’d have what I have if I hadn’t lost what I did.  Isn’t that how life is sometimes?  You have to sacrifice something to gain something?  But I don’t know what I sacrificed, so I don’t know if it was worth it.

Life is so unfair, and yet, somehow it works out, right?

Love you all!!! ❤
