Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!
Dave’s birthday is in two days!!!
And… I have some ideas, but I’m not entirely sure what to get him. It’s hard to decide with him!!! I even asked Jack for ideas and he said he really doesn’t know. I guess I could get him a tie.. but I’ve gotten him all the cool stuff he doesn’t have that I can think of!
Oh! I have an idea!!! I should go to Amazon and see if my idea is there!!!
Dave’s kind of a nerdy guy, really. I mean, he’s not nerdy, but he’s nerdy. He’s an engineer, and while he watches some sports, he always seems happier when solving a problem or doing something useful. I think that’s why teaching me how to do mechanical and electronic things is so important to him. He wants me to know how to do useful stuff, too.
But I don’t know how to do all useful stuff. I don’t know how to sew, for example, and maybe I should learn. It would be useful, right?
Both Sabby and Dave have always said that it’s important for me to always be doing something useful. But then they say that taking care of myself is useful too, so if I start getting overwhelmed or burnt out they don’t complain too hard. That’s nice of them!!! That’s why I want to get Dave a nice birthday present, and not a tie.
But before Saturday, comes Friday! Yaaaay!!!! School starts next week. I’ll be taking more advanced courses, and some different ones too. I took basic accounting, and mathematics, and some other courses last semester… Oh, Beth and I registered yesterday! But you didn’t know that because Marie took over! Hahahaa!!!!
Marie has a lot to say, but she’s a dog, so it just ends up being about sniffing things.
