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?

    lisp or not, i'm sure you're a nice person. i don't even know if you can get rid of this lisp- maybe practice speaking at home, try different movements with your lips or mouth, i don't know. don't let a lisp make you less confident, that doesn't change anything about you as a person. be yourself and be confident.

    Dear Dish it, Im already a grown teen but I don't think I am that easy to get along whem meeting new friends in school. And I think its because I lose my confidence cause I got some speech defect which called lisp. I often sometimes looks weird when theyre talking to me and It really affects me. What should I do? I have read and tried all the practice and therapy I read in the internet for a year but it doesnt make a change. I hope you help me

    you really need to have a proper chat with your parents. you're doing really well in school, and seem to have a good set of friends, and tell them that you should be able to go out, i mean you've done nothing wrong and surely should be allowed a little freedom in return?
