Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!
And it’s Friday!!! YAAAAAAAYYY!!!!!
So Jack’s settling in, they spent all day unpacking and getting everything set up. The housing market is kind of on its way down in this area, so they’re just going to stay in the apartment for a while and see if the houses become more affordable, so they’re making themselves at home in their apartment. They’re having to tell Grace to calm down a bit to not bother the neighbors, but she’ll be alright. Apparently she saw another little girl outside and ran right out and introduced herself. They spent an hour playing! Yay!!! She needs friends her age.
I wish it was that easy. She just runs out and says “want to be friends?” We teenagers and adults make a huge game out of it. Sigh.
There are a lot of kids in their complex, of all different races too. Grace will have a good time.
Jack wants to go on a date tomorrow night! Of course I said yes!!! I don’t know what he has planned, but I’m sure he’ll come up with something. Or he’ll just ask me for ideas!!! Now that we’re in the same city, we don’t have to work so hard to make our dates memorable. Maybe we’ll just have dinner with his family and play with Lily (the dog… or.. haha). I don’t know. Maybe that would be nice.
But tonight, Liz is over. The other girls have plans, but that’s alright, they can’t come over every weekend anyway. Beth and Liz and I are having a pretty quiet party all our own, and it’s nice. As I said, I love Crystal and Diana, but they’re a lot rowdier than Liz. And Allison just zooms all over the place. We’re not even really playing games this time – Beth is reading a book, and Liz and I are chatting and eating cookies. Well, when I’m not writing here! Hah! Liz and Marie are getting along great now! I think Liz wants a dog of her own. But her parents really aren’t keen on the idea. So she gets to be Marie’s aunt! How cute!!!
Love you all!!! ❤
