This is a picture of my Dad with a goofy tie I made him try on. He is here visiting this weekend for the first time in almost two years. He has a ridiculously busy schedule and I can’t get to our southern states with my current schedule, so it is what it is.
I’m so excited to be able to see him. Often we have to Recreate and re-evaluate plans last minute because of his schedule, but he was able to make it this time.
I’m so very much half of him and half of my mother in many ways that it is good to reconnect with this half. Sometimes I can get off balanced or lose the fundamental “muchness of me”, and spending time with my dad is a good way for me to ground myself.
Forgive me if I don’t post much today. We are kind of flying by the seat of our pants for the afternoon, and then going to a football game at the local university tonight. This university is his alma mater and I learned my love for college football by going to games with him there as a kid. It should be fun despite the fact that it is supposed to be 86 degrees here today. Hopefully it cools off a little by 7:00.
So that’s the story. Just another fun day in my timeline. Some days are about bipolar and anxiety and some days are about family and football. 🏈
