Not Starting Out to be a Good New Year

Wednesday, January 2, 2013

I need to vent right now... so pardon my rant...

J and I had planned to get together over New Years to visit Alabama. The plans got a little messed up because he didn't want to take money from my dad for coming to get me. (My parents won't let me drive down to South Carolina by myself). So J had suggested going to Alabama the next week and if I could come down for New years, I could stay with him and then go to Alabama the next week.

I told my parents the revised plan about staying in SC a week then going down to his family, but they didn't listen. So they gave me a surprise by waking me up Saturday and asking if I wanted to go to the beach (to see J). So we packed and headed down.

J was going to come up Sunday after he checked in at midnight on Sunday, but I asked him to come earlier. So he said he would at around 9. Around 11 I found out that his debt card didn't work. He couldn't get gas to come up.

By this time, my parents were very upset about this being a wasted trip. J also found out that he might have to work this coming weekend, so it would be almost a waste for him to come up and get me.

I got quite an earfull from my parents tonight about the whole trip being a waste. That J had shit in his hat and now had to wear it (pardon my language just repeating what they said). My mother said I should stop and smell the roses and really think about this. That she didn't know how we were going to be able to make it on our own.

J was planning to come up this weekend if he didn't have to work, but mom said it wasn't a good idea. So now I feel like my whole world has crumbled around me. I don't know what to do or think or feel. All I can do is cry.

Alright.. rant over.



  1. I am sorry girl :/ that makes for a long weekend. Parents [who aren't military] don't understand the life, nor the fact that it all can change at a moments notice. I do think 'J' would've known before he took off that his Debit card wasn't working.. but that's just me.

    Chin up girl!

  2. As much as I'm sure you love your parents you can't let them get in your head. You have to do what want and do what makes you happy. Things happen and things change, the military isn't easy.
