Remember my post about Sarrie? (insert link here if I knew how to do so)
Sarrie and I have always had the joke that the month of May has always been crazy. Therefore, instead of Cinco de Mayo, we celebrate Bizarro de Mayo. Since 2005, May has always been the month we dreaded. We kept a log one year and read back on it and laugh our tooshes off. That month of May started early... April 28, I believe and ended on the best note, as the 31st of that year, my sweet sweet niece Eliza was born.
Each year since, we have always laughed at the month of May.
Well............................ Let ME tell YOU...
Bizarro de Mayo, as usual, started early this year. Way early. Like... 2 AM on Friday, April 25. I'll spare the details, but that's when it started.
Author's note: This is big reason behind why I haven't posted in a good month or so.
ANYWAY... April 25 was a crazy day. In laws were visiting, I had to go to work... blah blah blah. I came home for dinner and barely ate. The 26 was about the same. I had a protein bar and that was about it. Not much of an appetite. Then I went to a bachelorette party on the beach and stayed in a hotel with a girlfriend. The 27, I talked to Sarrie. She was planning a trip to come and visit on Wednesday, the 30 and we discussed aforementioned visit. Are you getting all this?
Sunday the 27 was also "Confrontation Day". That was the day I explained to New Mr. Tia my loss of appetite and sleeplessness and distance over a few days. I asked him who she was and why he was doing what he was doing. He was at a loss. Didn't know what to say. Did nothing to vindicate himself and instead of trying to explain, he protected her.
Wednesday, the 30 of April, New Mr. Tia left and went to NC for a golf trip. And Sarrie flew in. I picked her up at the airport and we had lunch. And then we went to my "house" and started packing my stuff.
Days went by, I went to my job and gave a very short notice where my boss was very supportive (thanks, Vin). And I said my goodbyes. Sunday, May 5th, Sarrie and I packed up my car and left before New Mr. Tia got back from NC.
He didn't believe it to be true and was sending me text messages telling me he'd see me soon. Little did he know I was almost to the Georgia border.
Cinco de Mayo... I pulled into my hometown. There's a lot to be said about the fact that I only cried when pulling out of my Florida driveway and pulling into the town I'm from.
May 10... I flew out to see ~j. and family. What a great time we had. I love my sister more than I can express. Her support and love is indescribable. That goes for the rest of my family as well.
I have had a pretty decent month if I do say so myself.
I am working to put my life back together right now. For the first time in a while I can say that May has treated me pretty well.
Everyone needs a family like mine and a Sarrie to boot.
