Of sorts anyway. Yes, I’m still here. I was able to bounce back after being alone for a month. While alone I went through the stuff dad left me, started going to group therapy I never finished, spent a lot of time just alone in my old place and walking around, remembering the old times. I went on cold turkey about a week after my last entry and I still try to stay clean despite occasional relapses. Like, 2-3 so far. I switched to other substances.
Fighting a whole different war now since I’m off heroin. All the anger issues came back within 2 weeks, I’m restless and unstable. Huge difficulties sleeping. I stay up every second night or more and sleep whenever I feel tired and disturbing thoughts are not keeping me awake. The idea of yet another therapy isn’t appealing but battling them alone is a fight I can’t really win. I still don’t want to tell people – except that I did tell Erin and she was a great help. I knew she had similar troubles in the past but I always thought she’s so strong she just somehow got over it. But talking to her also kinda in a sad way confirmed that we who are sick in this way DO NOT get over it. There’s no cure. We just gotta learn to control our emotions, identify the problem when it starts to crawl out and do something before things get bad.
I could’ve quit. I came back because something inside of me told me to. ‘You can still make it.’ I believe I have as many chances as I give to myself. I started to feel awfully lonely. I missed my home and I missed my baby princess. I wanted to hug her and lift her as high as I can (I’m weak as a wet noodle and she’s getting heavier), and I thought about the coming summer and pool parties and BBQ and seeing friends and Tyson coming back home for summer. And then I decided to try and be strong once again. Went back to work too.
There’s this thing ongoing with Gage and Mark and I still look like I got rolled over by a M1 Abrams. Gladly Miah wasn’t really scared. Daddy got a boo boo. Not a big thing. I’m not really into sharing about that right now. Not yet. Still kinda baffled by what Mark did. He wanted me to do some recon with him a week ago. It was all a bit weird. I’m more used to him just hating me. Anyway, I’m kinda thrilled too. I really like Gage and ‘his way’ of doing things, despite the fucker tasing my soles. Who the fuck does that kind of creepy shit? I’m not seeing him in a while now cause I’m planning Miah’s second birthday party and I want all this to heal properly.
Anyway, I actually wanted to tell about the party and my stuff really has no place in this blog but I kept the bad stuff out. Just, like, a small update on what’s been going on.
I was seeing my dealer and found out that Heaven8 is back. It was gone for several years since the main producer got busted and nobody was willing to pick up that risky operation. Now someone has and they’re back on their feet and building a new network. It isn’t released yet but I got samples. Some changes were done to the formula and my guess is that they’re gonna release a whole palette at some point. Well, this is where I got the party idea. Sounds like a disaster for kids’ party, right? No worries, it isn’t.
Imagine, if you like, a lush tropical garden on clouds. Narrow stairs lead up to the sky and through a gate of roses. White, sparkling, fluffy clouds surround the garden. The air is full of freshness of exotic flowers and the heavenly breeze is cool and soothing. Behind the garden there’s a heavenly palace made of white rock, and pools of clear blue water under orchards of trees. Clouds and flowers float on the water and on the bottom of the pool pure jewels can be seen. You walk inmidst all these wonders and then, you see a rainbow. The end of it is near, and as you pass between two big clouds you come to a clearing. White cloud beds and pillows litter the ground, between them rainbow-colored candy canes stick out of the ground. On a royal white table crystal bowls present all the heavenly delights, made for the Princess of the Cloud kingdom. A chime rings and maids bring in a royal birthday cake. There’s music and lights everywhere and the party goes on until the night falls.
You know, a tropical pool party with cloud props and foam. And lots of bling. Erin found a perfect venue, a house that belongs to some of her friends who are currently in France. She could’ve let me use the island again but I didn’t want to repeat. I want something unique every year. June 6th isn’t on weekend so we decided to keep the party on 4th which in Sunday. Miah will get one more present on 6th and some cake if there’s anything left. If not we’ll have some ice cream.
Originally I wanted to only invite close friends but not many have kids. I’ll invite the kids she mostly plays with in daycare, and their parents and siblings. I want everybody to have fun. The “open party” will propably last 6 hours and after the outsiders leave the rest of us will hang out until we get tired.
Apparently I should’ve started to plan this 6 months ago and it’s gonna cost a whole lot more since we’re in hurry. Erin promised to pay for the props and whatever Stella and her party planner friend are charging, and I’ll handle the rest which is mostly materials, equipment and catering. And the foam guy. Hope that house is clean. We’re going to see it this weekend. Nikki is coming to babysit Miah. Said he has a fun and sporty game to encourage her to move.
I wouldn’t say she’s gotten lazy, but… The daycare lady said she’s acting normal and Erin didn’t notice anything, but when I got home from Mark’s place last week I saw that Miah seemed a bit dull. She isn’t her hyperactive self. Could be just because I wasn’t with her for more than 6 weeks and could also be something worse. Her daily rhythm is normal, she eats the same amount and likes the same foods but she plays a lot less, or a lot less active games. She prefers to just sit instead of crawling or walking. Since I’m home we play outside every day and go for walks and she’s pretty much like always during those times, running and laughing and trying to climb on things, but when we get home and I go about my hobbies or chores she sits quietly near me and plays with one toy and I’ve caught her just sitting there doing nothing. I hope it’s just a phase and that she’s doing more thinking and paying attention to her surroundings and playing imagination games but I’m gonna make an appointment to her doctor anyway. In case it isn’t a phase and something’s wrong.
Like always I wanted to add a few pics to the end. Let’s see what I can dig out this time. Got nothing new on PC.
Treats and cats, and here’s one little extra for daddy. :3
