|With all the terribleness of last night and losing little Weedle, I didn't get to post my awesome thing (not that if I had the chance I would have even taken it since I was so sad...)|
Well, yesterdays awesome thing waaas! The group hug me and Natalie gave my dad before he left. After how things went last time he was here and how he left and him and Natalie didn't even get to say goodbye, it really touch my heart that our crazy little messed up family could all be there to see him off and wish him to (as Natalie put it) "Have a nice trip, see you next fall!" And then she proceeded to laugh like the crazy woman she is. I love my dad and I know him pretty well and I know for a fact he was tearing up because he was so happy to have his little girl on his side again.
|Two awesome moments for today!!|
The first: Me, my dad and Natalie all at Cafe East sitting idly, eating and spacing out, when my dad bites into an egg roll and there is a loud crunching sound, loud enough for everyone to hear (kinda like a tooth breaking....). He starts shaking his head looking puzzled and his eyes crazy wide and slowly brings his hands to his mouth (still chewing very slowly) and I realize something has happened and I go "Did you crack your tooth?" and he goes (mouth full) "I don't know!" So then he grabs his napkin and spits everything into the napkin and by this point I'm already giggling at the face he's making and how big Natalie's eyes are in anticipation of the horrible soon to come pain. He looks in his napkin and starts licking his teeth and I ask again "Did your tooth come out?" and he goes "No, but that FUCKING SCARED me." And Natalie goes "Did it hurt?" and he goes "It fucking scared me." and she goes "But did it hurt?" and he goes "It fucking scared me!" and she goes "Okay I get that but did it hurt?" and he goes "It fucking SCARED me!" and she goes "I know it scared you but DID IT HURT?" and he goes "It FUCKING SCARED me!" and I go "Damn we coulda had a million dollar lawsuit." and she goes "DADDY! I get that. It scared you. But did it hurt?" And he goes "No it didn't hurt! IT FUCKING SCARED ME!! It fucking hurts when I get scared! IT FUCKING SCARED ME!! It fucking took off forty fucking years of my fucking life! I could have had a heart attack!" And I proceed to fall over onto the seat dying with laughter while Natalie shakes her head and my dad is rubbing his chest.
The second: Athena was really good so we figure we'll let her sleep on the bed tonight since Munchy is with the puppies. She comes up and lays with her butt near me and her face at the foot of the bed and we're talking and suddenly she lets out this huge long fart that goes "wooooossssshhhhhhheeee!" and immediately it stinks of bad broccoli. So Raph dives down and grabs the stuffed animals and begins swinging it to make the smell leave (in the process hitting the screen to my laptop as well as his right testicle). Since he hit himself down under, he falls over and begins moaning in pain and I slap his behind for hitting my laptop screen, which Athena takes as a cue to go over to his side. So she walks over (almost walking on his testicles again) and she proceeds to stand over his head and begin wildly licking his head and ears to make him feel better. In an attempt to get her to stop and go away he said "ATHENA! Down!" And she immediately lays down on his back, continuing to lick him, only now she is also crushing him.
The awesome thing that happened today was that the puppies were finally born. One of them didn't make it, but there are still five beautiful babies that are going to loving, happy homes where they'll live long lives and grow fat.
|Todays amazingly awesome moment that sticks out very clear:|
Standing in line at Subway, vaguely listening to the music playing on the loud speaker, and idly noticing Raph rocking back and forth behind me with his arms around me. When the song began to say "I love you, I love you, I love you" He began kissing the back of my head. Not like something he wanted to bang, but more like something he thought was precious.
I smiled inside and out.
It's been too long. I think I should use this to help with my ever improving self. I've been trying to lose weight by exercising and eating right, no more sodas, no more daily facefull of candy, no more sugar induced comas (sad). But I think the mental bit of me needs some improving.
Years worth of nightmares, two and a half weeks of working as a phone sex operator, and the sadness of loss have really brought things down for me a bit mentally. But 1000 Awesome Things has inspired me. Instead of ripping them off, I think I'll do my own sort of thing. 1000 Awesome Things but each entry from something that happened that day. No matter how sad or down I am, I'm going to drag my butt on here and post and remember the GOOD parts of the day, the parts that made me smile and light up.
Let the games begin.
