What am I supposed to say to my dad?

I haven't heard from my dad for about 3 weeks. I'm done with him. (For anyone that doesn't know what's happening..I haven't seen my dad in like 8 years. I visited him 3 times after he suddenly wanted to be back into my life). I left my riding boots at his place, and I want them back. My aunt has offered to call him up and drive me over to pick them up. What should I say to him? I DON'T want to continue seeing him. I have been hurt enough from him.

He's going ask me why I want them. He doesn't know that I have a lesson scheduled with another horse stable. He's going to be VERY mad.

The truth is the only way out of a situation like this. If you can't be truthful to people, then you can't be truthful to yourself. Cause your lying to him makes you lie to yourself. Just remember that and you'll know what to do. And you'll do what's right.

Trouble rides a fast horse.....(Shrug)..... I ride a faster one.

Is he a horrible man?

Can your aunt pick them up for you?

I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.

I think that the truth is the best way to go.

You don't need to answer that if you don't feel so, but is there something happened or did he just cut out keeping in touch with you?

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

Pretty much he decided to see me and my sisters after the judge threw him in jail. He has the right to see us every other Saturday. I felt like he wanted to be a part of our lives, and I've always wanted a dad. So we saw him 3 times. On all 3 of those visits we had fun. I got the flu and couldn't see him one weekend. I called him and let him know and he said that he would call the next day to see how we are doing. I said that maybe we could see eachother sometime during the week. I called him, and he wouldn't answer. Then I called him a few days later- no answer. It's been like 3 weeks. I don't know why he won't answer the phone. My mom had talked to him and he was saying how he can see us whenever he wants, and that she has to drive us over there. (Which is not true, because it says that he has to pick us up and drop us off) I heard that whole conversation, because he was like screaming. My mom told him that he can call me anytime. (Which I've told him many times). He has my cell phone number and the home phone number.

A few years ago, I had made an attempt to get him back into our lives. I invited him to my soccer game and he came to it. That's it.

I just am sick of being hurt by him. I used to cry almost every night. I'm sick of calling him and not getting answered. Why can't he be a man and just tell me??

I'm done with him. He doesn't deserve me. I already called another horse stable and they are awesome people. I just want my riding boots back. He's going to give me a hard time.

And please no one tell me to give him another chance. I can't give out anymore.

So what do I do? call him? have my aunt drive me there? I don't know what to do. Should I just have my mom deal with it?

Ask your mom or aunt to pick them up. Or just tell him you like wearing them. You don't really owe him an explanation. It's your property.

He shouldn't be letting his students wear him- they are yours. Get someone to go pick them up for you and stop worrying about it. :]

Other than the obvious "ick" factor of other people borrowing your boots, I'm not sure why that matters. If someone's wearing them when you show up, march right up and tell them to take them off their feet.

You don't have to say anything about why you want them back. It's a pair of shoes. Just tell him you want to wear them to school if he actually presses it.
