Hi! It’s me! Lily!
And Sabby’s birthday is nine days away!!!
I have to think of a present!!!
But I don’t know what to get her.
I can’t really do the letter thing again, like I did last year… but I guess it has to be something like that, because I can’t think of anything I could buy her.
You know, I don’t think I ever told you why we don’t meet up with Dave’s parents for holidays. I mean, they’re alive, they’re somewhere in the country…
They don’t like Sabby.
Remember how I said that Dave is white and Sabby is black? And how they met, and how she was kind of a… well… whore? I hate that word but it’s true. She had a hard childhood and had a lot of boyfriends. She cleaned up her act when she set her sights on Dave, but… his parents never forgot. And when they got married, well, that was it. They didn’t want anything more to do with them. They didn’t quite disown him, but made it quite clear that as long as Sabby was in the picture, they wouldn’t be.
I’ve never met them. I don’t think Beth and David have either, but maybe earlier.
But I don’t want to meet them.
Sabby’s my mother, and has been nothing but nice to me. I don’t think there’s a mean bone in her body, except for when it comes to protecting her family. She’s everything I could have ever wanted in a mother, and more. I love her and if someone doesn’t love her then I don’t want to be around them.
I love her with all my heart.
Otherwise, a busy day. The dooter is still a bit slow but is picking it up, the sign-waver is really pulling in business (she wants a slightly more revealing costume and a modest raise… the raise might be warranted but Sabby doesn’t want people coming in just because of a nice set of… ahem). Sabby came around and is going to hire a baker. That’s going to be expensive but she does think it’s a good idea to have someone around in case she needs to be somewhere – I can’t right now.
Texas state law – underage employees can’t use mechanized bakery equipment. I might be able to get away with it because I’m part owner, but neither of us want to test it.
Lunch hours are really busy and there’s a huge demand for corporate events, like I said. Maybe we should eventually have some light snacks, but one thing at a time.
And I’m getting better at making chocolate! And candy!!!
Okay. Gotta go. Tomorrow’s Friday!!!
