Sindy's Blog - October 16, 2003

October 16, 2003

Had to go to my dad's this weekend. How weird! I've been trying to prepare myself for this visit to his new apartment and I really didn't think it would be that big of a deal. But it was. I'm hoping it will get easier but I am really dreading having to go back there!

Mom dropped Amy and me off at Dad's on Friday night. It was okay - we watched some TV, ordered in pizza and Amy told Dad all about what she is doing in school right now. Dad had set up a couple of beds in his spare room for us and said we could go shopping in the morning to get some things to jazz the place up. We thought that could be fun, so agreed and headed to bed.

It wasn't that it was totally painful, it just was a little uncomfortable. Dad was just trying too hard to get us to be happy. He kept suggesting things and throwing stuff in the cart that neither of us wanted. It was getting a little out of control so I told him to calm down. This did not go over well. He just let go of the cart and walked away. We followed him out to the car and we never did get anything to go in our room.

Later he apologized and said he was just trying to make this easier on us. I know he doesn't want this to be awkward, but it is. There's nothing he can do about it. I'm sure we will all settle into our new routine eventually, but for now I think we will hold off on the massive re-decoration of the room at my dad's place. We'll just gradually bring some stuff over and soon enough it will feel more like home.

I think I smell freshly-baked, chocolate chip cookies. Wonder what's up with that? Mom doesn't usually bake. Better go test 'em out and then brainstorm on my Halloween costume. Still not sure what I want to be?

    I'm a 12 year old girl with really strict parents! I do chores( even handling BLEACH sometimes) , I take care of my little brother, I'm in top set for all my classes- even on the gifted and talented register and I've only ever had 1 detention- and that was their fault anyway bc I was late( they drive). But, I'm still NEVER allowed out with my friends! My friends are all in top sets as well, are well behaved and all we literally would do is window shopping. I mean, there are my age smoking shisha and doing #####- they should be lucky I'm not a delinquent! But my parents always say I can't hang out. Not because they're worried about my safety, they just dont want me to go out.! Even sleepovers, my parents always say no because they ' haven't met the parents" but they make NO effort to do so. I'm losing out on knowing my friends better and whilst they're all making best friends, at school I'm just the person in the background- the left out friend. It hurts and most of the time I wish I was fostered or something. How can I make them loosen up? ( don't say anything about sneaking out because I chose life)

    Is there a particular reason or situation causing you to feel this way? I can't provide much advice other than talk to them about it. Communication is important.

    He is a jerk, but then what ?? He is your best friend . Maybe you should tell him to sleep for an extra hour. It may be a lack of sleep.
