Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!

Well… it’s a Sunday, I guess.

Liz went home this morning and we went to church.  It was just church.  Stand up, sit down, sing, stand up, sit down, say some stuff, pastor does his preachy thing, then we get chocolate pancakes.

I almost forgot, though – today is Grace’s birthday!  But thankfully Dave and Sabby didn’t.  I got her a last minute gift and we went to one of those kiddy fun places where she had a pizza party.  She invited all of her school friends and everyone had a blast.  Except one of the kids was just awful.  You know, the kind of kid that just thinks he can do anything he wants?  He was trying to make Grace’s day miserable.  Finally I just told him to sit down, shut up, and stop picking on Grace.

He swore at me and told me in no uncertain terms what to do with myself.

Sabby overheard.  She came over and asked him where his mother is.

He said she dropped him off there and went shopping.

Sabby went Claire Huxtable.  In her dead calm voice, she said “what’s her phone number?”

“I don’t have to tell you.”

Sabby got even calmer.  “I’ll ask you one more time.  What’s her phone number?”

“I don’t -“

She just stared at him, with her patented number four glare.

He told her.

Sabby called up his mother and told her to come and get her child right now or her next call was going to be CPS for abandoning her child without telling anyone.  Sabby just kept using her dead calm voice, you could hear the screaming through the phone.  She just kept quietly saying “come get your child.  Now.”

Finally she hung up.  A few minutes later a woman came storming through the door yelling.

“Which one of you told me to get my child?”

“I did.  Please take your child and leave.”

“You can’t tell me how to parent my child!”

A manager stepped in at that point.  “No, but we can tell you you’re not welcome here.  We saw how your child was treating everyone else.  She’s right.  Leave.”

Sigh.  Why do I have to run into all the karens.

Anyway, she finally left, and not kidding, everyone applauded.  I’m sure the lady heard it.  Well, after that, everyone had fun.  Grace had a cake and got her presents, then they started running around playing arcade games.  It looked fun!  I would have too…  but Jack was there.

Of course we could touch or anything, but we could talk.

He apologized.

I asked him if he knew what he was apologizing for.

He said he wouldn’t have liked it much if I’d disrespected his beliefs.

I asked him what his beliefs are.

He said he doesn’t really have any but he still wouldn’t have liked it much, and he shouldn’t have done it to me.

I gave him a hug.  Of course he hugged me back.  I miss him.

But we still have some stuff to discuss, I think.

Just because I have those pills doesn’t mean that things are… safe.

But that’s for later, I guess.  It was just nice watching Grace running around and having a blast.  Even David was joining in on the fun a bit.  Oh, his birthday is next week, too!!!

Anyway, a six year old’s birthday party is really fun.  I should know more five year olds so we can have more parties!  Hahaha!!!

Anyway, back to the grind tomorrow, I guess.

The waterpark opens in a couple of weeks!!! Yay!!!

Okay…  gotta go to bed now.

Love you all!!! ❤
