We wound up having to rent a storage unit, but we got everything out of my father's house.

In theory, this means that I don't ever have to speak to him again. That's my current plan.
And you know, considering how much family I've chosen over the years, I feel pretty comfortable deciding that some of my "blood" relatives can maybe go do their own thing, far away from me.

Maybe some day I'll no longer be angry with him. Maybe some day I'll grow up enough to forgive him for his mistakes, missteps, and misdeeds. Maybe I'll find myself with enough "spoons" to start building a bridge again.
It's just that the bridge was all my doing, and some of my step-mother's doing. He's a grown man; by now he should be responsible for his own feelings. And, if the way he raised me makes ANY kind of sense, he should deal with the consequences of his own actions.

So maybe someday when I'm not his daughter anymore, I might be able to figure out a way to be his friend.

This was going to be a big post about how good I feel to be done dragging boxes around. I do feel relieved to be done with the "move". I still have a ton of stuff to manage, and I'm still going to be putting things away for the rest of the year.

I can at least be social once in a while now. I can at least visit with someone for lunch, or spend quality time with kids who love me and miss me. I can maybe consider attending social functions.

Just uh, don't bring up my father, ok?

WHOOPS. Turns out that Twisted Tiki is indeed closed on Tuesdays. Therefore, we are moving the party to Sanctuaria, the Tappas place across the street.

Speaking of social time, [livejournal.com profile] bradhicks has a birthday on Monday. Unfortunately, I work late on Mondays, and I'm broke as a joke. (Three or more months of not being able to do my embroidery business has HURT.)

I get paid on Tuesday. I'm also OFF on Tuesday. I proposed a gathering at Taha'a Twisted Tiki in the Grove. So let's celebrate his birthday (albeit slightly belatedly) and enjoy some food and Mai Tais!

I'm not sure what times he's posted on The Book Of Face, but basically consider it a "Happy Hour" arrangement. I'm game to be there from about 5pm until close to midnight, but I'd say to feel free to swing by for an hour and toast the Birthday Brad.

And yes, I'm using him as a lure to get my friends to come and play. Or maybe I'm using me as a lure to get him a Birthday Party. Hint: My Significant Other will be there, so maybe leave the kids at home for this one? Also, it's a bar?

So put on a summer sarong, Hawaiian shirt, or just a lei (over your clothes) and join us for some Twisted Tiki fun!

Oh, and if you don't own a Hawaiian shirt, perhaps you need to contact Curious Cat Clothing and pick one up. Just saying.
