I haven’t been on in forever!! So much has happened!
My dad arrived at Aunt Jane’s on the 24th! I’ve been so busy spending all the time I can with him, he’s leaving tomorrow night. Sucks =( But he stayed an extra day already, so I can't really beg him to stay again. Not to mention... we still don’t have a computer at my house. I’ll have to use Aunt Jane’s or get to a library. Blehhh.
Anyways, my dad... he’s so much like me!! We’re getting along very well, I think it’s because I don’t have any hard feelings for him leaving us for so long. I try my best to understand the situation, I’m just greatful he’s contacted me and I’ve finally had a chance to meet him. Not a lot of kids get that chance when parents run out on them, so I’m SO greatful!! I’m pretty lucky, I guess!
He’s handsome! I look a lot like him, and we even use the same hand movements. Just thinking of it makes me smile, lol. Now I know where I get my artistic side from!!
Mark met him on the third day he was here. He played a few songs for him on the guitar, which my dad LOVED, and they seemed to like each other a lot! Not that my dad can really... disapprove, lol! But it was fun, we went out for lunch, just the three of us. The fact that Mark wanted to meet him gave me butterflies. I feel like he’s truly serious about ‘US’. <3 Heehee. Becca and Jordan came to Jane’s to meet him too, before they leave for college, we all watched a movie and ended up having a popcorn fight. They thought he was funny and nice. He’s just so... chill : he’s just the total opposite of Mum! He’s so laid-back, it was almost like hanging out with an old friend or something. He’s still my dad, of course, but I’m surprised it wasn’t as stressful or awkward as I was dreading it to be!! I’ve been really happy with all of it and how everything is going ^_^
I took most of my days off from work so I could see my dad, so my check’s going to be... measly. But I’ll just see if I can work overtime or pick up some extra hours next week, things should be okay. I havent been spending too much money anyways - my dad’s been paying for a lot of it. He’s... um... rich. He gave me $250 for a late late (or.. really early) birthday present! I don’t want him to leave... not that I just want him to stay and give me money! LOL, that came out at the wrong time. A week just isn’t enough time! I hope he comes back again. I really do! =(
I still haven’t been home too much ever since my mom flipped and broke the computer. I think she knows she went overboard... but doesn’t know how to apologize or something. I already said sorry for being up so late, and I’ve at least come home to get more clothes and I stayed for lunch one time. It kind of works out because she isn’t really wondering why im not home since she thinks i just cant be here. Which is pretty true. But she hasnt found out about my dad yet. I’ll tell her when he leaves.
OMG and Becca’s dad went to rehab too! So much shit is happening! I’m happy he went though, maybe he wont be such a drunk and ruin her life anymore. Its hard for the family now that he’s going to be gone for a litttle while though. I told her she can stay with me anytime, and Jane said it was okay if she stayed there too when her house became too stressful and she needs to get school work done. Jordan admitted that she hopes me and Mark stay together forever. Which makes me smile. She wants me t be her sister-in-law! LOL she said I’d be the best sister-in-law ever and that way we’d always be friends too! Heehee. Im so happy!! I’ve been doing really well with balancing my time with everyone so no one thinks Im only spending my time with him. I'm going to miss Jordan and Becca now that college has started!
Well, I have to go to brunch with my dad! Bye!~!
