As days go by, it becomes easier and easier to be reminded that time waits for no one, no matter who you are. For no man, woman or child, do the sands of time slow but this weekend reminded me that no matter what happens, some people cannot forget that the passage of time is valuable for the development of anything, be it a relationship, a career, or a family. The foundations of family do not begin with an accident, it begins with love, it begins with marriage and like any other great journey, it begins with a plan. Here's mine...
As I am sitting here, I am slightly irritated. Not really mad, just irritated. I understand what caused the person that I was talking to have the conversation that we did. But when the conversation lingers on the same subject for two hours, it gets a little grating to have to have to tell them the same thing over and over again. But he can't be faulted for it. As it's been said a million times in the past, a father's love is a father's love.
Anyway, this whole post isn't just about the conversation that we had with my father (and the complete carnival of fail that was the ensuing conversations with he, myself and Elli. Not to mention the one with he and my mom...), this post was about the day that I had with Elli today and the events that happened yesterday.
So today, Elli took me to blow a glass pumpkin. Now, there have been a lot of things that I've done in my life that have been pretty cool but creating a glass pumpkin definitely tops my list. The process of creating something, even something as fragile as glass, is a really cool experience that you have to try at least once. After that, we headed out to Dish on Market for a quick bite to eat and then to Dad's house for that... conversation.
Yesterday, we went to the movies and watched the Three Musketeers, which was an excellent movie, for the record. After a slight hiccup on the expressway, we headed to Kohl's to spend a little of time with Bennye and do a little window shopping. All in all, just another day in the world of Joseph Kerr. Sorry for the delay in the update but life gets messy.
