Hi!  It’s me!  Lily!

I’m feeling a lot better now.  I guess I had to get that out of my system.  It’s hard for people to understand, especially because I’m such a happy and bubbly person, that I… do have problems.   Mine is a memory issue.  I don’t have it.  It is something I lost, and I miss it sometimes.  But Beth and Sabby and Dave and Liz help.  They’re my new family.  I just wish I knew my old one, sometimes.

It was a weekend.  I worked, I doot dooted, the family went to church but I went to work.  I don’t mind.  Church can be okay but I prefer working.  Even if there’s a karen or two.  After I got home yesterday I decided it was time I learn to ride a bike.  I’ve been talking about that for a long time!  So I got some kneepads that were sitting around in the garage, and Dave took me out on Sabby’s old bike, and I wibbled and wobbled all over the place.  It took an hour or two, but I think I got it!  I just need to do a bit more practice.  I want to learn how to drive, but at least I can wibble and wobble over to work and feel just a little bit safer.  Beth doesn’t like running, but maybe she and I can go riding too!

I did fall once or twice.  Sabby tells me I’m lucky I have young bones, and the kneepads kept me from getting scraped up, but owie!  And you know what?  Sabby kissed my owie!  I know I’m not little, but the thought was nice.  And the skin wasn’t broken, so it wasn’t even gross.  I guess she’d been reading my blog.  She tells me she did see me sleeping with my head on Beth’s lap, and she just smiled to herself and walked on.  She said it was adorable.  It was so like us!  Me sleeping, and Beth reading!

I don’t know if I’ve ever described Beth.  I don’t know if she wants me to post a picture of her, but she has light chocolate skin, with long, a little frizzy hair, and a pretty face.  She’s still got a bit of baby fat but she’s tall so it doesn’t look bad on her.  Not as tall as me, though.  Where I’m kinda tall and lanky, she’s just a little shorter with a little more cushion on her.  But she doesn’t mind.  She says she’s not fat and it’s nice to have a little padding, like when she’s riding a bike.  Maybe someday she’ll want to be a bit more toned but right now she’s just enjoying reading and not worrying too much about what other people think.  I’m trying to get her to run, but she refuses.  That’s why I hope I can ride a bike with her someday.  She does seem to enjoy that.  Oh, don’t get me wrong, I think she’s pretty and not fat at all!  But it never hurts to be a little more healthy, right?  But maybe I take that a little far.

Anyway, school tomorrow.  It was a boring weekend, I guess, but who needs excitement every day!

Love you all!!! ❤️
