So...finally went ahead and decided to go look for Fathers Day cards. I was alright looking at the ones for grand fathers, first time dads and to husband ones...

Then I got to those deep emotional ones...I started bawling. In the middle of the store with LynJ in her sling and my sister beside me I started crying my eyes out.
It hit me - first time since 03 I've looked at Fathers Day cards...since I lost my dad...

and it sucked.

All these feelings I managed to push deep into my mind suddenly came crashing forward and out.

My sister did great trying to support me but we both ended up bawling in front of the cards.

It just...sucked.

Tomorrow more shopping for a gift for DF, but I'm glad I got the card situation out of the way now I can avoid the asile again...

I so know what you mean. Every time I drive by IHOP I start crying because that was my dad's absolute favorite place to eat. Little things like that really get you when you least expect it, huh? I am glad your sister was there to comfort you. Good luck finding a gift for your DF and big big (((HUGS))). PS your daughter is absolutely GORGEOUS!!! 3 of my nieces and my nephew are biracial, they are beautiful.

I'm sorry you are having a rough time.

I agree that it is the little things that get to you. I was cleaning a toilet the other day, and ended up bawling on the bathroom floor of all places. My Dad had helped me fix the toilet the last time he visited my house, and it occurred to me that this will be the last house that my Dad will have helped me work on. That was often our time together...fixing things and him helping me with stuff at my house. Ugh, losing a parent sucks!
