Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!

Our band stinks!!!

But it’s getting better.

Everyone’s actually been practicing… which actually surprises me a little.  No one’s actually given up yet.  I mean, there’s been a lot of stuff going on this holiday, but Crystal came prepared and she’s been really making progress.  She…  she’s passable now.

I don’t mean good.  She really can only do like three chords, but she’s shifting through them pretty well and seems to be getting comfortable with her instrument, so that’s good.

I’ve been looking back on my posts, and there are so many things I talked about and then let drop.  Some of them were just because life got in the way – I mean, i wanted to learn how to make chocolate, and I got all the stuff, and never really did!  I should go back to that.  Thankfully, baker did, so we still have homemade chocolate, but it’s not like I’d make!  Baker’s a baker, I’m a connoisseur!!! Haha!!!

Minami’s got her audition this week.  I hope it goes well.  I think it will.  She told me she had a big blow up with her mother, and called her father and basically told him that if things didn’t change, she was going to leave soon and if she did she might not talk to either of them much ever again.  He kind of blew her off…  so, well, she might have to call that bluff.  I guess we’ll see how it turns out.  I wonder if Yuki’s parents would take her in.

I wonder if that’s a good idea.  But they do seem nice and they seem like they’d at least support her.

He doesn’t seem horrible, it’s just… he’s got his work and that’s what he does.  He doesn’t really pay much attention to things that go on at home.  But neglect is its own form of abuse, right?

Things are pretty quiet at the shop.  They were bustling for a while, with Christmas and the concert and everything, but now they’ve quieted down.  Sabby had to talk to cat-girl – again – she dressed up for Christmas.  She wore a festive red and green ribbon, and, well….  nothing else.  It covered everything but just barely.  At least it was more than a few inches wide.

Girl just doesn’t seem to get the concept of don’t piss Sabby off.

Sabby puts up with it, though, because, as I’ve said, man does she drive the business.  That was one of our higher grossing days.

Sigh.  It feels like we’re making a deal with the devil, though, sometimes.

I wonder if someday Sabby will be like “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em”, and that’s when I’ll just throw my hands up and ride off into the sunset, never to be seen again.

Dave’s birthday is coming up soon.  I wonder what we’ll do…

Love you all!!! ❤️
