Hi! It’s me! Lily!

And I’m… well… confused.

Beth seemed very depressed today.

I don’t understand!  I mean, she had such a good day yesterday!  We threw her a huge gala, like the Oscars!  We gave her a (okay, not the most expensive, but nice) award!  She got a car of her own!  She had everyone show up, and even some people she didn’t really know!  She had food and chocolate and even got asked out by her boy friend (not boyfriend, it’s different!)  She got everything she wanted!

And… this morning, she was just kind of moping around.  She didn’t want to do anything, and she was even a little snippy.  Not rude, but she clearly didn’t want to be bothered.  She ate breakfast, went to church (where the pastor actually made a sermon up based on that ceremony, which was nice but really silly), and that just seemed to depress her more.  We came home and she just went up to her room, and I haven’t seen her much since.

I knocked on her door and asked her if she was okay, and she said yes, but she wanted to be alone.


I asked Sabby if she knew what was going on, and she didn’t really.  But she told me that sometimes it’s when you get everything you want that you feel the worst, and, well…  I don’t really understand that, but Sabby’s pretty smart about these things, so, she’s probably right.

And then she said that Beth’s sixteen and when you’re sixteen you get moody, and then she looked at me meaningfully.

Dangit, Sabby!!! Hahaha!!!

Maybe it’s because I don’t have everything I want, and I can’t have everything I want, that I don’t understand.  Oh well.

I need to look up the manuals on Beth’s car so we know how to change the oil.  It’s in the driveway now, and we’ve got four cars now, and the neighbors are giving us dirty looks.  I don’t really care, but Sabby’s a little peeved.  If we can fit four cars in our driveway, it’s none of their business how many we have!

David’s a bit jealous, but he’s ten.  He’s not driving for a while, and that’s just how it is.

Maybe I should get Beth a shake.  I haven’t seen the owner in a while anyway (though he did come to the shindig yesterday!)

Love you all!!! ❤
