First off: LiveJournal--WTF with the lag tonight?
Any 'ol way...
So. Car got fixed last Tuesday (Finally). Dad sent money. Bank decided they wanted to hold onto it until tomorrow, so I was getting prepared to spend another week of getting shuttled around by the boss lady.
BUT! Dad, being Dad, called them and paid for it, so I've had a car since Friday. I have a great dad I don't deserve. But that doesn't mean I'm willing to give him up. I just hope that when it's time for me to take care of him, I'm able to do just as well by him.
The cats are starting to sleep on the bed together during the day, and the distance betwene them gets smaller each day. I'll give them 'til January at best before they're curled up next to each other.
I have a two day work week, and then a week and a half off. And Dad will be here for that. :)
Of course, he wants to take a look at my expenses, so there'll be a kid-and-parent moment or three I'm sure, but right now I think his help is what I need, even if it comes with what may feel like a lecture from my perspective. I feel bad it's necessary, but I'm not stupid enough to let that turn me into a 'oh, but everything is fine' martyr. I'll leave that for the ex and her favored holes. I just want back into a good place and this time stay there without getting into any of the messes I got into this past year that makes this whole thing necessary.
Oh, and that isn't why Dad's coming out...it just became something we're going to talk about since he had to help with the car. (Damn, I feel like a kid who broke the cookie jar when she got caught with her hand in it. But I know that's just past experiences. I didn't do anything 'wrong'...I just need help. I hope I remember that when he's talking to me).
Damn, can you tell what's worrying me most?
Anyway, that aside, I'm excited that Dad will be here in two days, and am looking forward to it.
Other than that...you know, there's not much going on. Although right now I'm smelling tuna fish when there's none out in the open...hmn. Should go check that out.
ETA: Last but not least, please clicky (I don't know how I got into this, but it's freaking addictive)
