Juneteenth and Father's Day

June 19th, 2022 at 03:15 am

Tomorrow is Juneteenth as well as Father's Day. My dad never celebrated the holidays, and I miss him dearly. I would still visit with him on this day, I’d do anything to talk to him again. 


I decided to treat my ex-fiance to lunch/brunch. He has had a rough 2022, the poor guy is literally in tears almost daily. Since it was Juneteenth and I also wanted to support Black-owned businesses, I thought, why not brunch/lunch? I can kill two birds with one stone, take him out to get his mind off things, and support a small business owner so it worked out. 


He finally realized he needs to get his crap together and that the mother is toxic. I heard him snap at her, sadly rightfully so, something he never did. Even his daughter says the mom is toxic. 


In other news, I haven't heard a thing from either of the companies I interviewed with, I have been ghosted, I absolutely hate that. I was hoping to get some idea of my status before my trip and nothing. Not taking any chances, I paid myself for July. Paid my tithes, mortgage, a $100 on the student loan (boy do I wish I could do more), and my internet bill. I hate not being able to throw more at this student loan. Interest will start up again in August, which sucks. 


I also applied for another remote-jobs, hopefully, something will come in before August. 


Yikes, I forgot. I finished up three articles for $300 in gift cards. I can use this for gas and groceries, hopefully I'll be published this week so that I receive payment.

    I too wish I could talk to my father again. This is my second Father's day without my dad.

    Sorry you haven't heard from the companies. I hate when they do that and leave you in limbo.

    I'm sorry you've heard nothing from your interviewers! Maybe you still will. Sometimes it takes time.

    I have probably shared before, Father's Day is always a little sad for me, because of the first Father's Day after my divorce -- I remember stopping to look at Father's Day gifts and realizing that there was no one to buy for -- my own father had passed away that year, my husband had taken an exit, and therefore I no longer had a father-in-law. It was quite a jolt at the time, and it always reverberates a little even now.

    Now I see my ex all the time, so there has been some healing, but some things don't heal entirely.

    Oh, and I wanted to add -- years ago I worked in a Black Cultural Center, even though I am white -- long story there. Anyway, it was a good experience and not a short-term one -- I was there for 10 years -- and therefore, I am very aware of Juneteenth and have always associated it with happiness and celebration. I'm so glad it's become an official holiday.

    Mother’s Day & Father’s Day can be hard days for those that have lost their parents. My sympathies to you all.
