Always Thinking of Dad

It's amazing how often I think of this new dad situation.  (Catch-up here).

Despite his sorrow at losing his wife, and dealing with the weakening of his heart, he has a lot of power.   His current situation has brought out in him so much anger.  I get it.  It's just, I don't respond well to someone who is so angry.  I try not to take it personally.  I know when he yells he isn't yelling at me, but I happen to be in the room, and he happens to look at me occasionally, so how ever much I don't want to feel his power, I do. 

So, I just take it all in, reassuring myself that it isn't me he's mad at, it's Life.  But the thing is I would like to yell too, and not at Life, but at him!  But I won't.  I'll just sit on the couch, and revert back to being 9 yrs. old.  Confused.  Looking to my sister to try and understand what's going on, and wanting to run to my bedroom and play Barbies. 

He is feeling better, that's a blessing. 

Here's something that should be really interesting... my sister and I are going up to be with him again in 2 weeks... and our mom is coming with us.  He wants her there.  (Although he left, he's loves her, always will.)  Should be very interesting indeed.

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
