    Here's my weekend in 3 nutshells: Saturday was my son's last baseball game (the team has one next week but he's leaving for DisneyWorld) the kids fielded well but left their bats at home. We'll have to work on that at practice this week. Still haven't decided if I'm going to transfer my study guide to the harder test. I've begun listening to the audio CD's in my truck, but I can't LISTEN to what they're saying AND drive. I was saved at church yesterday and plan on being baptized in a couple weeks.Then after church was thing 1's graduation from preschool. Good program, he had a lead part...well he did the "tweet tweet twiddly diddly dee" in Rocking Robin. My dad wasn't allowed to come because he didn't "feel" like (staying sober) going to my niece's graduation last Wednesday and mom didn't want to play favorites. After that we went to my parents for hamburgers and the day went south. You couldn't understand dad because he was drunk, then he decided to tell my opinionated SIL how to raise her kid which resulted in a lot of yelling and my brother and his family asking if he was happy that they were leaving and he had ruined our nice day. Dad said he was happy about it, so we ALL left. He's picking alcohol over his family. My mom would leave but my older sister is autistic and she wouldn't understand why they had to leave. I'm super sad for my mom who deserves to be happy. I'm sad that my dad doesn't realize he has a problem, I think we overlooked it until our kids got old enough to wonder why their granddad stumbles around and slurs when he speaks. I'm very sad in general today, which is equally troubling because I'm never sad or feeling sorry for myself.

    Edit:forgot this is supposed to be some kind of primal journal. I ate well this weekend except for the wedding cake I had Friday night, it was worth it. I lost another pound, grand total 35 since early December.

    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

      Well, 35 pounds is good. The rest, yeah, that is just sad.

        So, I just found your journal. Yay! Someone else to bug, annoy, and generally cause problems with/ for!
        Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

          35 lb is awesome!
          As to grandpa... I'm in that same boat, just subtract the spawn (haven't gotten that far yet.) Dad isn't quite that bad, but he and alcohol are never far apart. If you want some of my rantings on the topic, I'm sujre there are plenty throughout my journal, as well as rantings and expositions and drama filled depression sprees on other things. It's a wonder I get around to the PB stuff at all. Supposedly, Dad's been closer to sober after that health scare, but I'll believe it if I see it 6 mos from now.

              My dad had open heart surgery about 2 months ago and he's actually gotten worse since then because he's off work. At least when he works he's a functional alcoholic, but anyone who packs a cooler of beer for the 15 min. ride home from work is A. asking for a DUI or worse, and B. sad.

                Sssh, ladies- he hasn't noticed us, yet.

                Kvetch away. You've seen my journal. The food stuff is mostly an aside at this point Glad the things are doing well, at least.

                  Thankfully, Dad has never been that bad. There were times... not here, not now... that I worried about him and us, but he mostly knew when to drink and when not to, and I think a lot of it was wanting to remember things from us growing up and not flunk a random drug test. To be perfectly honest, if he wasn't driving, I preferred beer drunk dad to sober dad to liquored dad. Hell, I preferred anything to liquored dad.
                  Anyways, I do worry about his alcoholism with regards to the future podlings, but that's then and I haven't burnt that bridge yet.

                    Yup, beer drunk dad is fine. Whiskey drunk dad is what he's been for the last couple years. Side story, drssgchic my little garden is doing great, but I planted a row of something and I can't remember what it is...I think that qualifies me as a beginning novice gardener.

                          Did you know that the U.S. controlled Toronto in the War of 1812? And Washington, D.C. was captured and the White House burned? Hmmm...hindsight says we should have given D.C. to the Brits and kept Toronto...I like Canada and would visit if it wasn't a whole 'nother country.

                            Hmm...I hadn't considered that possibility. At least if our govt was in another country it might be an excuse for how far removed they are from reality.
