A very prim and proper girl continues her story.

Annabeth here.  I'm the one that people call "Girlie-Girl", 'cause I am exactly that.  Not one ounce of tomboy to be found in ME.

My older sisters, Pansy and Willow, still pick on me badly about this.  I'm sorry.  I can't help it.  I absolutely HATE to get dirty!!  Is there anything wrong with that??

Mommy and Daddy are always after my sisters to pick up after themselves, but no go.  They remain as pig-dirty and filthy as ever; I find it disgusting.  I don't know how they can live with themselves (or all.  That.  Dirt!!).

I always feel good when Mommy or Daddy ask them, "Why can't you be more like Annabeth, your little sister?  She picks up after herself; why can't YOU??"  I know Mommy and Daddy must wish they had three "girlie-girls" as daughters instead of only one, and the youngest is the baby of the family -- not to mention, the cleanest! :)

We are getting ready for Thanksgiving.  For Thanksgiving, we are going to our Granpaw and Granmaw's house.  We will see not only them, but our aunts, uncles, and cousins as well.  No doubt Mommy and Daddy will probably say something about how they wish the other kids were like me.  I don't know why I'm the only one who IS clean-cut and neat all the time, but I am.  That's just me.

I love Thanksgiving.  I love the time off from school and going Christmas shopping the day after.  It may be crazy with all the shoppers, but I don't care.  I love looking at the Christmas trees and dreaming about what I would like for Christmas.  This year I would like some new art supplies, some books, and some new clothes as my two older sisters borrowed some of mine and now I can't find them anywhere.

I also love singing in the church choir for the Cantata; we are learning our music now and so far we sound pretty good, if I do say so myself!  I will be doing a solo: I will be singing "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear".

Well, I hate to run, but the bus will be coming in less than a half hour and I have to be at the bus stop or else I will miss it.  I will write in here again soon; until later, this is Annabeth Staples saying so long; may God bless you always!

~To be continued.~
