Sindy's Blog - June 16, 2005

June 16, 2005

Things have been going well with my new found outlook on dating and boys. I haven't talked to Trick in forever and I've just been chillin' with A.J. and some other girls since we got out of school. No real progress on the job search, but I'm sure something cool will come up soon.

I don't know if you all know this, but Father's Day is coming up on Sunday. I haven't really spent a lot of time with my dad since like Christmas so it's going to be weird to spend the whole day with just him and my sister. My mom is paying for us to take Dad to a movie and then grab lunch somewhere. I'm going to try and talk Dad and Amy into going to see Kicking and Screaming. Will Farrell is always so hilarious and it seems like the perfect Father's Day flick.

I don't think Dad will make too much of a fuss about what we do on Sunday. I called him the other night to make sure he wasn't going to be busy and I swear he was like on the verge of tears. It sucks that we don't get to see him as much lately, but he's always on business trips and we've been in school so our schedules never really match up. I think now that I'm done school I might go spend a few weeks at his place.

Before I used to hate having to stay over at my dad's cuz I always thought that my parent's were getting back together and it was too weird to spend time with him without my mom. But now I've kind of just come to terms with their divorce and I miss spending time with him. I think this Father's Day is going to be a lot of fun. As long as Amy doesn't whine too much! What are you guys doing for Father's Day? Any big plans? !

Peace,

Sindy.

    @rainbowpoptart  When I originally talked to my father, I was given the opportunity of good timing to bring it up. Luckily, there was no anger like I was partially expecting and I remained calm, which I definitely wasn't expecting. My fathers main concern was just worry and having seen other teens run away from something later getting themselves in trouble. He even brought up how he had run off at 18 and joined the Air Force, which I already knew. But, with this round, there is no perfect time to bring it up and he's always busy or we're having to do something so it's just very frustrating to find at least alright timing to bring it up, if that makes sense.

    My advice on this may not be the best because I haven't personally dealt with this yet, but... Parents, or guardians, get used to having their children around. You're [usually] with them for 18 years, which is a long time, so of course they - or in this case, your father - is going to feel like he's lost something very dear to him once you move out. To me it seems like he does truly understand that you're growing up. He just doesn't want it to happen. He knows that you're leaving soon - he just doesn't want it to be soon. Parents/guardians who are close to the children usually feel that way. If you're really so concerned, talk to him about it again, in a similar way you have done already. Or perhaps just a "Wow, my birthday is just around the corner". Once you do move out, visit him as frequently as you're able to and feel like. I'm sure he'll appreciate it, and it'll help you maintain a close relationship with him.
