So mom took up for me!

Mom is finally home from her camping trip. Thank god!

I have missed her. Dad is hard to deal with. He’s so controlling. I am so glad mom is back home now again.

And it was never more apparent how glad I was, until my dad blamed me for frightening the dog, his dog. He said I had a squeaky voice, and his dog was scared of it. I call bullshit!

But mom took up for me! She told him to shut up and she said maybe it was his loud rough voice that scared the dog. She said I didnt have a squeaky voice and to take no notice of him.

Thanks mom! I love you!

Knew it wouldnt last

I knew dad and me wouldnt see eye to eye for the whole weekend!
I wanted to have a shower before bed, he said I couldnt. I know I should have just gone ahead and did what I wanted, but he yelled at me about it, and made me feel upset. He said why was I wanting to shower so late, it was only 9 PM though.
I didnt see what the problem was!
Then when I went to make myself some tea he said he didnt want me making any more tea. I think he’s such a control freak. He likes to have the control in every single situation! Its so annoying!
I rang mom and I complained to her, but I dont want to ruin her trip! She told me to just stay in my bedroom and wait until the morning to shower when he’s in a better mood.
So thats what I am going to have to do!
Ug sigh this sucks!

Morning ramble

I am feeling good this morning. I feel good because I was able to go back to sleep, even though I woke up at 5 AM! I only stayed up for half an hour, then I went back to bed, and I slept until 9 AM! Yay! Sleeping in was good! It felt nice to be able to do that!
I had a nice breakfast and am now just messing around online, on twitter, reading blogs, I made coffee, it is delicious!
Life feels good! And I got trhough the summer solstice too so yay! I managed to get through it in one piece! For that, I am so grateful!
I talked to my mom this morning, she said it hasn’t rained yet at the campsite, I’d say we’ll have some rain later on today though, as its very cloudy outside and the sky looks dark too.
Mom is enjoying her trip. She said if it doesn’t rain she’s going to go walking this morning.
My friend Norma rang me, she is in a good mood. She just rang for a chat. Its nice to have friends who do that. I am so glad I do.
I have no plans today, just going to chill, relax, just do nothing, enjoy my free time. May have a bath later, for some self care, may read, I started a new book, just a child by Sammy woodhouse. Its good. I am on chapter 3 now.

Camping trip

Mom and my sister have gone camping for the weekend. I didnt go. Camping isnt really my thing. I dont think I’d enjoy it. I think I’d be too nervous about insects, and about eating outside and sleeping outside.
But they’ve gone, and I hope they’ll have fun. The weather doesnt look too good though. Its supposed to rain tomorrow and sunday, all day and evening. They’ve gone to a campsite with some of my sisters partners family.
So its just me and my dad for the weekend. I just got here an hour ago. We’ve eaten, and now I’m just doing my own thing, relaxing in the bedroom while dad watches tv.He’s in a pretty good mood which is good. He’s easier to get along with when he’s not being whiny or a control freak.

Fathers day 2019

I’d like to wish all of you a very happy fathers day!

I hope everyone had a nice fathers day today, and if you still have your dad in your life, I hope he has a nice day too. For those who dont, I hope you can remember him with fondness and that you have many happy memories of spending time with him throughout the years.
As for me, my dad is still here with me, he had a nice day, I gave him a card with some money in it, and we had a family dinner with all of us myself, my sister, mom and my dad and my sisters two kids all together. It was very special.
I am very happy we got to make lots of happy memories today. It felt nice to be able to do that. My dad was very happy with his gifts, and I think he felt appreciated and special on his special day.

The lyrics of the song are below

“Father And Son”

It’s not time to make a change
Just relax–take it easy
You’re still young–that’s your fault
There’s so much you have to know
Find a girl, settle down
If you want, you can marry
Look at me–I am old
But I’m happy
I was once like you are now
And I know that it’s not easy
To become when you’ve found
Something going on
But take your time–think a lot
Think of everthing you’ve got
For you will still be here tomorrow
But your dreams may not…

How can I try to explain?
When I do–it turns away again
And it’s always been the same
Same old story
From the moment I could talk
I was ordered to listen
Now there’s a way, and I know
That I have to go away
I know, I have to go…

It’s not time to make a change
Just sit down
and take it slowly
You’re still young–that’s your fault
There’s so much you have to go through
Find a girl, settle down
If you want, you can marry
Look at me–I am old
But I’m happy

All the times, that I’ve cried
Keeping all the things I knew inside
And it’s hard
But it’s harder to ignore it

If they were right–I’d agree
But it’s them–they know
Not me That I have to go away

In short, it’s all about you being the BOSS and choosing the best way possible to express and depict your understanding of the prompt and go berserk!

TOPIC FOR TODAY : FATHER/DAD/POP

My dad means the world to me. No we’ve not always had the best relationship. He’s an angry mess sometimes. But I still love him. Life hasnt been an easy ride for him.

He grew up poor, and then at age 10 he was sent to a reform school, as his mom couldnt look after him, while there, he was abused, physically and sexually.

He was there for 6 years. Then he left, and turned to alcohol to cope with his feelings. He abused alcohol for years. He married my mom when he was 27, my mom was 17. They’ve been together ever since.

My dad means the world to me. I can relate to him, and he has been good to me, he is usually the one I would turn to for advice on things.

He always looks after my dog for me when we go on holiday, he is a great cook. He has his issues, but dont we all?

I am so glad he’s my dad. He’s very special to me. A few years ago I almost lost him. He got sorosis of the liver and almost died from it. That was a very scary time for all of us.

He still drinks now but not as much as he did before. He cant drink as much as he’s gotten older he’s not able to drink as much.
