The good, the bad and the ridiculous
Tuesday, March 09, 2010
I'll start off with the bad and get it out of the way. It turns out that my dad stopped taking his medication and started drinking heavily again. He had the nerve to swear my mother to secrecy and she said she didn't want to "rat him out." Not cool, dad.
I happened to find out when I decided to take a new movie over to watch with them and he was mysteriously absent. I called his cell and he didn't answer, so I left him a dramatic message about being careful. I found out the next morning that he was arrested at 4AM that night/morning for DUI. I'm so proud.
I'm up early this morning because I agreed to take him to work - since they took his license and all. He goes to court this evening... good times.
I honestly can't believe he's never been arrested before. He seems to be under the impression that the cops were being dramatic about how much he drank. His blood-alcohol levels were twice the legal limit. Awesome.
Now everyone will see his name in the newspapers, including my 86 year old grandfather. I don't think my father is too old for corporal punishment, but that's just me. I asked him if he's going to be on Cops... he didn't think it was funny. Personally, I find myself hilarious.
I started the 5-day pouch test on Monday, so at least I had the over-eating somewhat under control before the stress kicked in again. I'm on day 4 now and haven't gone off track! It's actually keeping my stress levels in check to see that I can stick with this.
I feel better than I have in quite awhile. I'm sleeping better, eating better and definitely have more energy than I have had in months.
It's only 194 days until we leave for Jamaica and I'm not dreading getting into better shape for the wedding - and for life!
