I went to SLC with the Family as planned an picked my dad up from the airport for a weekend. It was a really good time and I had alot of fun. But, at the same time it was hard also. It was really good to have all the siblings and grand kids togther with my dad but it was depressing at the same time because we knew he had to go back to his personal hell once sunday came. We got into SLC late thursday and went to Best Buy to try and take my brothers video card back to trade it for the right one. He had gotten a PCI Express instead of an AGP and of course when he got home he had torn the box completely apart (Too Excited I guess). But the guy at Best Buy seemed to understand how those things go. So we got the new card which turned out to be $40 cheaper.
After that we went and ate at red lobster (the kids kept dipping EVERYThing in the butter. It was making me sick)
Then we headed to the hotel and played in the pool till we were wiped out.
In the morning we went and picked my dad up and went to a sportsman’s show. I ended up with Rylee coloring things in the back. After that we headed up to Lagoon for the day. It was alot of fun and we went on some cool rides. Chase even went on the collosus and this swing that pulls you way up in the air then you go flying back and forth. I ended up going on a sling shot like ride with my sister. This was the highest ride in the park and you sit in a little ball shaped cage and then get shot up in the air. Then you bounce up and down for a couple minutes. Talk about a thrill. we did alot of other rides like the rattle snake rapids and everyone seemed to have a great time. we eneded up leaving around 9 PM up to Park City after grabbing some dinner. I was soo wiped out that night and ended up sleeping in till around 9:30 the next morning.
The next day we went to Park City mountian resort and went down the alpine slides and did some mountian biking. The alpine slides were a blast as we raced down the tracks. When my brother and I went down mountian biking for the second time though I crashed hard and went head first into the ground. I heard my neck snap several times and got up with a peice of my lip on my shirt (Ouch!). After this we headed out for another family dinner then headed back to the motel room.
On Sunday we ended up going to the Zoo. This was a nice day to do this but the kids were gettin really tired and cranky. So after about three hours we had had enough and took my dad back to the airport. It was really hard seeing him leave and left me in quite the mood even still to this date. I hope he can get away from that town and closer to home soon. I know it will probably be January before he gets to leave that place. But, I can always hope for sooner.
When I got back to work on monday I was quite tired and in a cranky mood. Probably due to being depressed, sleep deprivation, and going to work at 5 AM. I ended up bitching a couple people out before the days end which I rarely do. So, after I had had a rough day at work and the guy I am currently seeing telling me that we need to move slower… my brain was fried and emotionally drowned. I ended up going home early at 3:30 and chatted with the guy I am seeing’s Ex-boyfriend. After a while of that I went to a movie with my friend Bill to get my mind off of things (Thanks Bill). then went home and tried to sleep some of it off. Talk about an emotional roller coaster ride of a weekend I guess. I can’t wait to get back into a normal swing of things. Wether that be with a bf or without one I will just have to wait and see.
But time to get back to work and try to figure out a couple of these strange issues.
