It's very different this trip.....I'm not "happy" or in the mood to "shop". Tom almost made himself sick to his stomach on the way down. Worried.
He hasn't told his Dad yet, but both his brother and his sister noticed he was "acting very quiet".
Actually scared is more like it.
Guess he will tell him before we leave here. I'm sure his Dad has noticed the iceberg affect going on.
I'm staying out of the way.
Bethe, I drove down to Palm Harbor and I'm pretty sure I was basically in your front yard.
Miss T and I drove into Tarpon Springs, rode down the road of Sponges. Seems Tarpon is "famous" for those loofa type sponges.
Shelly, I wanted to go to Jilly's.....but I feel obligated to hang here at the house at night.
Maybe tomorrow I'll head over to Hudson Beach....Sam's to be exact. And of course I have to hit a couple of Beall's Outlets and such.
It's 81 degrees and beautiful. We drove in rain through most of SC and into GA. I drove ALL night because Tom refused to do any sleeping.......grrrrrrrrrr.
And when he did drive (all of 5 miles) he nodded off and ran off the road a bit and of course I screamed "get off the road now". Lovely. I drove on into Dad's. Took a short nap.
Tonight I feasted on BIL's Lasagne....I feasted a bit too much. Miss T helped Grandpa make Canolli's. We'll be having them soon with coffee once the pasta settles some.
Tom tries to get close to me, but I'm not receptive. I'm just so hurt right now that he did what he did. Of all times too!!
I've taken just a few pictures...not as many as normal. Guess I'm just not in the mood.
Thank you all for your wonderful words of encouragement and love. It helps to know that I'm not crazy by expecting some kind of "normal".
Don't get me wrong.....he's not bad all the time or each and every weekend. It comes outta the blue sometimes. But I should have seen this one coming in. But I also thought I was having confidence in the season too....who'da thunk he'd mess up at Christmas time. Too many bad memories of when my Dad did that stuff to us kids.
Love you all!!!!
I'm off for some dessert.
