Hi! It’s me! Lily!

So today was hot and humid.  I mean, soupy hot and humid.  The weather was clear and hazy, and..  hot!!!

But not anymore!  Storms are coming!!!  And they’ll be here soon!  I already let Marie out, so let it storm!!!

Liz is over tonight.  Beth is over at Crystal’s house with Diana, so it’s just Liz and I.  I don’t mind.  I’m supposed to be grounded, but…  I’m not sure what I’m grounded from.  I can have Liz over, I really don’t go out with friends and do lots of stuff… I can’t really see Jack but we talk a lot online, so…  nothing really changed.  I guess it’s just the principle of the thing.

Anyway, the booms are coming closer.  Liz seems a little nervous, I might have to be her big teddy bear tonight.  I don’t mind.  She was my little china doll a couple days ago.

I love Liz.  Did I tell you that?  I do.  She and I aren’t really alike in some ways, we are in others, but we’ve been there for each other ever since we met a couple of years ago.  Remember when she was so upset at her parents and that led to them kind of informally adopting me?  Her home life got at least a little better after that.  And remember how I accompanied her at her concert?  She really appreciated that.  And how I wouldn’t have met Jack if it weren’t for her?  She’s always been really understanding when it came to my spending time with Jack.  I wonder why everyone’s so understanding, actually.  Maybe it’s a Chinese thing.  But we’re always there for each other and she’s my best friend.  And I’ll have other friends and half-sisters and friends of half-sisters and all sorts of things, but she’ll always be, if not my best friend, one of my best friends.  She’s like a sister I get to choose, and those are the best kinds.  Don’t you think.

Oh crap, that boom was loud.  Liz whimpered a little.  She’s a little bit afraid of storms, especially big ones like this one.  I guess I need to go do my teddy bear duties now.

Love you all!!! ❤
