Well...my relationship with my mom is going well now. We had a few rough years though. In her defense, I was a little devil child. I didn't listen to her & rebelled every chance I had. When I turned 15 things starting turning around & she became my best friend. We still have our days and don't agree on much, but I know she's here for me & will have my back. She's the ONLY person that makes sure I don't mind if Rylee has something not so healthy for her. Sometimes I feel as if she doesn't act like a grandparent, but oh well. You can't have your cake & eat it too, right?
And my dad? We've had A LOT of rough years. I remember when I was little & my mom would make me go over there & I hated it. He would go to the bars & either take me or leave me at home by myself. He would come home sometime late in the middle of the night/early morning. We had our good days too, though. I remember going to the bowling alley every Sunday and seeing who would win (he always beat me.) I lived with him for a few years & he was awesome. Then he had a rough patch and has never seemed to get over that...still. :/ I miss him. I haven't spoke/saw him since October & it makes me sad. We stopped talking on not so great terms & Jeremy keeps telling me "he should be the one to contact you." I don't know..I believe it takes two people, but he's dicked me over in a lot of ways so I do feel like it's his turn. When I went to trade my car in (my 1st car) I found out he had taken out a second loan on it & they had a lien since he wasn't paying it. I was 16 when we bought this car so only his name was on it. I ended up having to fork out the amount to pay this second loan off or I wouldn't be able to trade my car in. Oh and another thing? One morning I woke up for work and my car was GONE! I called the police because I thought someone had stolen it & come to find out they came and repoed it because my dad was not paying his other truck payment..even though my car was UP TO DATE on payments!
our 'better' days.
My step-dad- well, not really my step-dad..more like 'my moms boyfriend for 12 years- now turned ex.' He is an awesome dad figure to me. He's actually interacted more with Rylee than her blood grandfather has. He's been there for me through it all. I love, love, love him.
Wow..this was a lot longer than I expected. :/
