A Sad Goodbye

Well, emotional distress has hit me hard this weekend. Today, I get to say goodbye to my dad for the third time in less than 10 years. The first time, he went to Iraq for 32 months. The second time, he went to Iraq for 18 months, this time, he is moving to Minnesota for a job in his chosen field; wind turbine technician. Currently, the job is only temporary for six months. If they choose to hire him on permanently after three months, then my mom will be following him to Minnesota.

I feel like an emotional train wreck today and it doesn't seem to get through to anyone that this is difficult for me to do. While I have already done this twice, it does not mean that I want to do it for a third time and I especially don't want to have to say goodbye to my mother a few months from now. My dad has always been the anchor for me in my family since I don't really get a long with any others unless he is there to defuse the situation.

To make matters worse, Hail is being a brat and whining about everything and Raph is antagonizing him, acting like a child himself. I am super stressed out and I really don't know how I am going to handle myself when the time comes to actually say goodbye.

Sorry. It was hard when my Dad decided to relocate to NC. I wish you the best as this situation moves forward.
