Since my dads been gone... - October 16th 2009, 11:17 PM

So since my dad has left things are okay...better than I thought they would..

My sister got a job as a waitress after school and weekends...so she doesn't go out drinking anymore...she even smiled at me the other day for no reason...she told me we should hang out sometime..I almost fainted! lol I told her alittle about Jaxon and I and she has been talking to me trying to help me figure things out..it's so awsome having my big sister back!!

My mom is doing okay, I still hear her crying at night sometimes, I asked her what is going to happen with my dad but she said not to worry myself with it...I think she is just lonely, has been for a long time, I've been trying to tell her to go out with some girlfriends but she doesn't seem to like the idea. I don't know what else to do for her. I help her with the baby as much as I can and we all sit and have a family dinner...and guess what...we all get along! No yelling or fighting..it's amazing!!

My brother..ugh well he is a different story...He is drunk all the time..my mom is worried about him but I think she doesn't know how to handle him with everything going on...there was alot of tension between me and him because of Jaxon but I asked him if I could talk to him and he basically said that I told him before that he had to step up and be the man so he said since dad is gone I have to listen to everything he says and have to "obey" him..ya..Idk...I just laughed and told him I didn't listen to my dad and I wasn't going to listen to him..he threated to hit me like my dad did..he was drunk but I knew he wouldn't...I told him I was going to be with Jaxon if he liked it or not so we came to an understanding...I can hang out with Jaxon..but it has to be when my brother is around...we aren't "allowed" to be alone and there is no touching allowed of any kind in front of him..well he said ever but yeah lol..and I told him in return him annnd Jaxon have to stop drinking and doing drugs so much, sense I'll be around more and I don't want them like that around me..so he said deal...so we will see how this goes...

Im glad things seem to be getting a little better for you *hugs* good luck with everything.

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Hi Nichola,

I'm so glad to hear that things are going better at home! It will be good to have some bonding time with your sister, and it's awesome that she is willing to help you out.

It's understandable that your mom is upset right now, and it may take her a while to not feel so lonely. Maybe she feels too upset to be with her friends right now and doesn't want anyone asking her questions or bringing up her husband leaving. Maybe try spending some extra time with her and letting her know that you are there for her.

I'm glad that you and your brother are getting along now. Coming to a compromise was a good idea. You don't need to obey your brother, but coming to an agreement seemed to work out. He isn't in charge of you, and I'm glad you realize that. I hope that making this compromise helps him to stop drinking and doing drugs so much.

Keep us updated on what happens! I'm glad things are working out
Take care.


The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?
