Redskins

Sorry I missed a few days. I didn't feel well Wednesday and just layed around more or less. Thursday I uploaded this kit and then received a phone call from my grandfather saying that my Dad was on his way for a visit and that he was all ready on the road (approx. 10 hour drive). This would make his arrival early early morning Friday. He finally pulled in at grandpa's about 10am and hung out there for the day. I did not find out he was even here till about 2:30 when I called grandpa to reconfirm our plans were still on for planting some trees he received. So when the boy got home from school we went to grandpa's. The oldest rode her bike there straight from school. We all chatted for about 30 min and then my Dad took off for Menard's. Grandpa and I then planted about half the trees and I also found out there was more to plant then just trees! Dad had not yet returned when it was time for me to go home, so that was the end of the visit. From what I heard when he did get back to grandpas he stayed for about an hour and left. He showed up again at grandpas about 11 am this morning and then left town to head back to his place around noon. No word to me or the kids or anything. If I would not have had plans to go over to grandpa's, the kids and I would not have seen him at all. The last time we saw him was last Christmas. The kids were pretty hurt that they didn't get to see him longer and that he didn't even say good bye. Me, I'm getting pretty numb to this stuff from him. I understand that he needed to leave earlier then expected due to a storm that is supposed to dump 6-12 inches of snow between his place and ours. But he still could of called, and besides he knows were I live, why should I hunt him down.

Enough about all that for now, I'll get into my relationship with my Dad at another time.


If you have hung in here this long you deserve a really big Thank You!

Your dad sounds alot like mine. He lives 3hrs away from me, and can come up here for the auctions, but never bothers to call or come by. I usually don't even find out he's been here until he's already gone. It's hard on my kiddos too, and like you, I've gotten kind of numb about it all.
The last time we saw him was in June when the kids and I went up there.
Hope you have a good week, I'm kind of hit and miss with the internet for a while.
Hugs,
Michele
