Hi! It’s me! Lily!

Another nice and quiet day.  It’s about time I had a few of those in a row, don’t you think?  Well, mostly quiet.  Beth is still in a snit.  She’s not a bad girl but she has a jealous streak the size of Texas.

I had to take her to school today, so in the car, I had a talk with her – while she couldn’t leave.  Haha.  I asked her why she doesn’t want me to be happy.

She said she wants me to be happy, she just wants to be happy too.

So I asked her why she thinks finding a boy would make her happy.  After all, I didn’t even want a boyfriend until Jack came along.

Long and short, I think she’s lonely.

Yes, she does have more friends than she did, or at least better friends, but she’s a quiet girl who prefers to read a book than do “friend” stuff, and…  I think there’s something she needs and is missing.  I’ll have to talk to Sabby about it.  She almost seems desperate and that’s… not good.

I wonder if Sabby’s attempt at a “friend dating service” did more harm than good, actually.  Maybe Beth got the wrong message out of that.  I dunno.  Poor Beth.

I did tell her she’s my sister and will always be my sister, and…  it’s not personal, I guess.  She doesn’t hate Jack, or me, she’s just jealous of me.

It’s hot again.  Booooo!!!

Jack starts school on Monday.  He’s a little nervous.  I think he’ll be fine.  Texas is not Ohio.

Well, I’m going to take Marie for a walk and brush Beth’s hair.  Yes, we still do that.  Even if she’s in a snit.

Love you all!!! ❤
