I'm having a really great time with my dad. It's Father's Day weekend and it is surely not about me. At least not until I get back home. Lol
I was super excited to see my dad because he always calls me "sweetheart." And the first thing that he said after my 7 hour drive (while grinning from ear to ear) was, "Look at all that hair!" That was super funny to me.
Anyway, aside from ALL the food, the continuous channel surfing and the volume being really, really loud, we are truly two peas in a pod. He copies off of everything I like and everything that I say. Of course, he'd deny it completely. It's so strange not to have grown up with him and have so many things in common. We don't even like the cream in Oreo cookies. How silly is that? Lol
I have been trying to treat him to breakfast, lunch or dinner since I arrived. It's supposed to be my Father's Day gift to him and he just will not have it. It's the only vacation that I get to take where my checking account balance remains the same the entire time that I'm gone. He insist on paying each and every time we leave the house. We even got pedicures this afternoon and I had to sneak and tip the employee. Lol
Now, we are waiting for our Father's Day dinner to get done. I wanted to treat him to a steak dinner and somehow, we changed our minds and are having hot dogs, Bush's baked beans (the best), buttered biscuits and wine. We're just as content with that choice. I think it's mainly because we love each other and not only that, we are perfectly content with the simple life.
Who needs a "boyfriend" when your dad and your son just absolutely love you to pieces?
Yeah, I know I've said that before and it's a joke. But I'm going keep saying it until a guy comes along and makes me feel just as special as my dad and my son does. They know all of my likes, dislikes, moods and quiet moments. I love being with "someone" and being quiet is okay with him. Seriously, sometimes, talking is overrated. :-)
In the midst of our quality time, he has got me hooked on The Swamp People. It's completely insane and something I would not normally watch on my own. The show is about people who catch alligators and have only 30 days to catch as many as they can. It is so intense, I don't think I breathe until the show goes off. They have a woman on their named Liz, and she rocks.
(Most women do!)
Well, I just wanted to put something on the blog so that I could have the memory of me and my dad having a great time. Nothing but LOVE!
Happy Father's day to all the fathers, dads, role models, and men who wholeheartedly invest in the lives of "our future." Being apart of some one's life is something that we oftentimes take for granted. If we would give more time and attention to our "youth" I believe that there would be far less adults walking around with childhood wounds.
Love for a great weekend,
