Hi! It’s me! Lily!

And for the first time in a long time, I’m not working on a weekend!

I’ve been working for a few months, and… that actually gives me a little seniority.  Believe it or not, most teens don’t like weekend shifts (though I didn’t mind too much).  So when I said I wanted to work weekdays, one of the newer teens got the weekend shift.

Didn’t make me too popular, but it is what it is.  I can’t work more than around 40 hours in a week or Sabby will yell at me.  And the owner.  I think the owner is scared of her.  haha!!!

But it worked out.

Liz stayed over last night.  She’s doing a lot better now, she was just really hurt for a while.  But we got her through it.  We made a pile last night and she… needed a hug.  Poor girl gets lonely sometimes.  But she’s a lot happier now and she’s already got her sights on another boy.  I told her to be a little more careful.  She shot back that she was careful, and Kevin just showed his true colors.  How could I argue with that?  But…  maybe she should be a little more careful with the kissing.

I know, I know.  I’m one to talk.  Meet a boy and a week later we’re inspecting each others’ tonsils…

Diana and Crystal were over too, but they spent the night in Beth’s room.  I’m fine with that.  They’re my little sisters, but they’re Beth’s best friends, and…  gotta respect that.

This morning, it stormed!  I wasn’t expecting a storm!  No one was!  Liz…  I didn’t know she was scared of storms, but I guess she is.  She buried her head in my shoulder and whimpered a little.  I guess she puts on a brave face other times, but it’s hard to do that when you’re snuggled against someone, right?

Marie’s a little scared of storms too.  So I let her out of her kennel and climbed back in with Liz and the three of us made a pile.  It was kinda sweet.  After the storms started to recede, Liz and I took her for a walk, and then I went for a run.  Liz and Marie are getting along, though I guess they’re not best friends.  Marie’s fine.  Liz throws the ball.

This afternoon we went to the mall!!!  I never told you which mall, but I can now.  Lakeline Mall over in Cedar Park!!!  It’s got…  stuff!!!  Lots of fun stuff!!!  I ate a cinnabon in honor of Allison.  Liz and Beth and Crystal and Diana and I… and of course Sabby… it was fun!!!

Even if I end up a CEO or Chairman or whatever of Sabby’s company… I’m still going to the mall with my friends!  Though I suspect they’ll want me to buy.  Hahaah!  I’ll need to explain to them that I’m not rich until… well… I’m rich!  Until then I’ve just got a share of a company that might be worth nothing or might be worth everything!!!

I told Jack my idea.  Judging by the faraway look he gave me then trying to seem unenthusiastic… it’s probably a hit.  Sigh.  But, y’know…  Boys gonna boy.  And you gotta love ’em for it, when it’s you they’re boying with.

Love you all!!! ❤
