The Ruth Chronicles
She's here now, pitching a fit. The current line, as best as I can hear, is that she expects me out of the house NOW. I have no idea how this whole fight started, but I'll try to describe it.

Ruth came over to spend the night, around 7. We all had a very pleasant dinner, then Ruth put out a bunch of food she got from a food bank. I disagree with that on principle; we may not be rich, but we can afford to buy our own groceries. We shouldn't be taking food from people who can't afford to buy their own. But I kept my mouth shut. Whatever.

While she and Dad were at the show at the clubhouse, I put away what we could use, and left out a few things we don't, including a couple of cans of condensed soup. Apparently, this was deeply offensive to her. We don't use condensed soup, there's no reason for us to keep it. In fact, we still have the cans she gave us last time. I told her thank you very much, but we really didn't need to keep it. Dad agreed with me, which set off the fireworks. Apparently he only listens to me, and we are both belittling her. Sigh.

I went in my bedroom, shut my door and turned up the TV. After all, I didn't want to be accused of eavesdropping. I came out after it was quiet. Dad was in the kitchen making coffee, I guess Ruth was in the bedroom. We shared a look, agreed there was no reason for this mess, and decided to drop it. Then Dad walked back into the bedroom and all hell has broken loose.

This is where we stand right now. What a fucking mess this woman is. She's completely nuts.

ETA- It seems quiet now. I even heard laughing. But I thought I just heard yelling too, so who the hell knows anymore. How much more of this am I supposed to take? This woman is INSANE- how does Dad not see this by now???

GAH. I cannot understand how ANY mature woman would make these kinds of demands about her partner's CHILD. Surely she must understand that kids always come first in a person's heart?

That's probably it actually. She can't bear that you have a piece of him that she will never have, and are a tie back to your mother to boot. Seriously, this is not high school. She needs to grow up!

So, how long will it take you to get here from New Zealand? Maybe you can talk some sense into my father, cause Lord knows no one else can!

Thank you, sweetie.

I'm sure this is gross to even contemplate for you, but the sex must be amazing for him to put up with this shit.

Sorry to be disgusting.

I don't know how amazing. He used my computer this afternoon to look up something about sexual dysfunction. But I guess dysfunctional sex is still better than the nothing he's been having these past years.

And oh boy is this gross!

This sucks. :( Is there anyway that you can move in with your sister?

Seeing as how she's in NY, it's unlikely. THey haven't even made room for her boyfriend's son, who's living in here in Florida with the grandparents.

Want me to come down and help you kick her ass? I could be there in 7 or 8 hours. But seriously, is you dad insane too, to put up with this woman? I hate this so much.

Seems like they made up. He's becoming as nuts as she is.

Oh. man. He needs to get rid of her RIGHT NOW!!

I am sorry you still have to deal with this! :(

It just keeps going and going and going. It's neverending.


You have no idea how ugh! it really was, Suz!
