I'm leaving in a few hours to drive the four and a half hours to the 0rlando airport so my Mom and Grandma can catch their flight. They have a 10:30 flight, which means we need to leave here around 3 in the morning. I'm not looking forward to that.
I didn't want to drive the four and a half hours back to Ta11ahassee by myself, so I convinced my girlfriend to drive with us. Of course, she said yes. I was relieved as I wasn't sure how I was going to keep my mind occupied with anything other than A going back next weekend.
Speaking of, it sucks. I wish I could take off this next week from school, but I really can't. We'll make the best of it any way. We're going to take her to the movies on Friday to see Gnome & Juliet. She'll also have a party at school that day to say goodbye to her friends at school.
A few of you have asked if I will be a part of her life when she goes back, and truthfully, I don't see K being open to that. She hates me. She hates my 'parenting' style. She doesn't care about A or me. She only cares about herself. I can't decide what I want to do about that. I'm debating on a photo book, a build a bear with my voice, a hallmark recordable story, or some type of jewelry. Maybe I'll do a mix of those.
Thank you all for your support. The emails, text messages, phone calls, and blog comments show us you all feel the exact same way we do. Thank you.
