A Weekend I Won't Forget

Emotions were shed this weekend. The good kind and the bad kind.

I went to my dads house for the weekend. I haven't been there in a few weeks and it's always weird gong to his house when I haven't been there in a while. It started to become odd when my dad and his girlfriend moved in together. I am used to not having him around in my life (living with him) but, I am not used to going to his house and having his girlfriend and her son with him. It's always been my sister, dad, and I hanging out and I could do whatever I want. With his girlfriend and her son around it's like I'm not free to do whatever I want. It's not all bad but it's different, it's the kind of different I am not used to just yet.

Saturday was a fun day, putting aside the headache I had all day. My sister and I stayed at my dad's house while he and his girlfriend went to the zoo. When they came back they picked my sister and I up then we all went to Costco, the airport, and an Asian market. The Asian market was pretty fun because of all the different kinds of foods they sell. Later that night we tried some Asian fruits we have never had before. This was the fun part of my weekend, trying different foods I didn't think I would like. Surprisingly I did like the fruits.

Sunday was spent driving to a cemetery that was two and a half hours from where I live. I "slept" a lot of the time we were in the car. Sleeping in the car is always difficult, the noise, being bumped around, and sunlight kissing your eyeballs when all you want is a dark calm space to drift off. Who ever thought cars would be good for sleeping.... why?

The cemetery we drove to was interesting. It's a natural burial ground which means they bury people and pets in the simplest way. It's a huge forest with an amazing view. It's really hard to explain exactly what they do, but the link will be after this paragraph if you want to take a look at it. We went there in hopes of finding a spot for my dog to be buried in after she passes away, she's got a while to go, but we are prepared now. Clarification: She is still alive, just to clear that.

Going to this place and walking around where many people's bodies are resting was not easy for me. The fact that my dog will be there too did not make it any easier. I shed many tears for this place is unlike all other cemeteries. The feeling you get while standing in the middle of the forest with many souls around is overwhelming. I don't know if I will ever get over the feeling.

Today is Tuesday, October the 6th two days since I was at the cemetery. In class, this morning our math teacher told us she had some bad news. Natalie who went to our school, who had been fighting cancer for five years passed away last night.

There are no words to explain how much this hurts.
But,
What I can say is appreciate the people you have around you and keep your loved ones in your heart.

Vanessa

  1. Hang in there girl. It's hard to think that some body you knew had passed away. And I am afraid to say I haven't been in that situation. All I can say is hang on in there girl.

  2. I always thought cemeteries sounded haunting, just standing in a place with so many souls as you put it. I can't say I've ever dealt with death before, but I can't imagine what it must feel like knowing someone you used to see as part of your every day life is gone, joining those souls. I am so sorry.
