Hi! It’s me! Lily!

And my recital was tonight!!!

OMG was I nervous!  I’m never nervous!  I’m always cool as a cucumber!  … are cucumbers cool?  I guess.  But tonight I was nervous!!!

Everyone was there!  My family!  Liz and her parents!  Crystal and her parents!  Diana and Maria!  Emiko and her family!!! Even Allison and her parents!  I think half the hall was my cheering section!  They even had Jack on video (though he was muted, of course)

I walked out and took a bow and…  and I thought I was going to cry!  All my friends and family!!!

so I played…  and…  and I didn’t really remember anything, but I don’t think that was my first recital.  And… and that’s confusing.  You’d think for a recital like that, someone would remember me.  Why doesn’t anyone remember me?  I think that’s the most confusing thing.  Just some person in Washington who occasionally drops bombshells…  I have so many friends and family now but no one remembers me!

After the recital, I came out, and everyone told me it sounded really good!!!  I guess?  It is so weird to be completely the center of attention like that.  Jack told me… well…  I won’t tell you what he told me, but I blushed soooo hard.  Let’s just say it’s a good thing he’s there and I’m here or my gown might not survive.  Sigh.  And then we went to a pancake place and I had chocolate pancakes!!!  YUM!!!

Next week I start working a lot more… but some vacations are coming, and yaayy!  Oh and the other waterpark opens this weekend!!!  YAAAYYY!!! More slidey watery fun!!!

I’m still a little depressed but been keeping busy.  I keep having these dreams, I’m not sure if they’re memories or if they’re like memories… but…  they hurt.  I don’t know why, they just do.  Hmm.

Well, I’m tired.  It was a long day.  Oh, Saturday there’s an event at that space that Sabby bought us memberships to, I think we’re going.  And I’m signing up for some classes there!!!  Yaayy!!!  I’m taking Saturday off, but I’m working a lot more, so I guess it all balances out.  I don’t have a huge bank account, but it’s doing okay.  And with the price of gas right now, it kinda has to.  This isn’t a political diary and I don’t like to talk about politics, but it sure feels like the people who make decisions want to mess things up.  I mean, I’m only sixteen, and even I know that some of these decisions are stupid!!!

Well, anyway…  time for bed.  David leaves for his camp on Sunday, and Sabby’s doing all sorts of buying and packing and fussing and worrying.  She gets so annoyed with him sometimes, but he’s still her kid.

Love you all!!! ❤
