Hi! It’s me! Lily!
Oh My God it’s a madhouse in here!!!
So today, of course, I worked. Sabby took everyone to the mall while I was working, but I didn’t mind. I got home and they did shortly after, and of course Allison got a Cinnabon and was bouncing off the walls. She’s a bit gluten intolerant but she makes it work for a Cinnabon!! Her mother’s okay with it and she says it’s worth a bit of a tummyache! Finally Dave told everyone to go outside and chase each other around out there, and that’s pretty much what happened. Allison, Crystal, and Beth were running around squealing and chasing each other with squirt guns (where did they even find a squirt gun?), while Liz and I stayed inside and chatted.
Sabby asked how Liz’s’ family liked the cookies. She said they liked them fine, but there were still a bunch in the freezer. Sabby looked a little embarrassed. I think she’s starting to realize just how much she overdid it. I gave her a hug and told her we know it’s how she tells us she loves us, just… a tiny bit less love next time. Either that or she needs to make us a Scrooge McDuck like swimming pool so we can swim in the cookies. I couldn’t tell if she was offended or amused. I decided a combination of the two. Liz just giggled.
I enjoyed seeing Liz, Allison, and Beth acting like little girls, chasing each other around, squealing, having a good time. Crystal was forced to grow up so quickly, and Beth doesn’t seem to know when to be a young woman and when to be a little girl, so it’s nice to see them just let their inner children out. Allison’s good for them that way. She’s a sweet kid. It’s a bit cold out, though, so how they’re managing to deal with all that water.. well, girls gonna girl, I guess.
Dave got out the grill again and grilled dinner. OMG that’s sooo good! Sabby and I drove to the store and got the meat and fixins, and while Dave was doing his thing, we did ours. We had grilled steak, and potato salad, and macaroni salad, and baked beans… and root beer! I love root beer! Liz preferred juice, but everyone chowed down! We had to cut the steak for Allison, but she filled her belly just like the rest of us.
Afterwards, we played board games until Liz had to go home, and we’re going to brush each others’ hair and tell stories until it’s bedtime!!!
I love a nice, drama free weekend. Oh no. I said it. I hope this doesn’t turn out like the last time I said I liked no drama…
