Yesterday, I woke up anxious. So I put on my running shoes and got moving.
I walked 11.5 miles – all the way to my dad and step-mum’s house (whom I hadn’t talked to in months). I spent some QT with my step-mum and step-sister and played with my nephew and niece. I always loved these people, but because the relationship I have with my dad hasn’t always been concrete, I’ve neer really gotten to know them. For the first time Keegan and Skyelar (my nephew & niece) weren’t so shy around me – for any time before they were too afraid to sit near me. I got to see my grandma (whom I also haven’t seen in over 4 months) and though my dad wasn’t home, we talked on the phone for a good hour. We hadn’t talked since March and it had been eating me up inside ever since.
