I got to talk to my sister yesterday. Yay! While we "caught up" with each other because it had been a couple of years since I talked to her, the main reason I wanted to talk to her was about our dad. She had the last contact with him and it has been well over a decade since I spoke to him.
Oddly enough, when I was talking to my sister about my dad, I got an email from him with some pictures. A strange coincidence for sure. Apparently, he found my blog, much the same way my sister used Google to find me several years back. I guess I have to be careful what I say about him now because I know he's reading. :)
I have a lot of history with my dad that isn't very pleasant, which is one of the reasons I've made no effort to contact him. He shouldn't feel bad, I don't talk to my mom anymore, either, though the reasons are very different. I'm still not 100% sure what I want to do now that he's "opened the door"--a door that has been closed for well over a decade.
