Dad and Ruth are going strong. He's going over to her place in a little while, he'll be going back tomorrow night. Sigh. I've tried reasoning with him. So have my sister, his best friend and his therapist- he's just not listening. All that time (and money) we spent on J Date was for nothing, apparently.

We're planning to go to New York for a week this summer, like we did last year. We're thinking the second week of August. My uncle will be away on a cruise at the end of July/beginning of August. We had planned to go maybe the third week of July, like last year, but Dad hesitated- he doesn't want to be away for Ruth's birthday. Really. Who the hell knows where their relationship will be come this summer? Hopefully over, but over doesn't seem to last long. Ruth's first serious freakout (and ranting about me) started the day after we got back from NY last summer. She made no bones about being pissed at Dad for going and when Dad mentioned something about going back the following year, she said they should go to Paris instead. I don't think she'll be happy about this- which makes me very happy, I have to admit.

I'm doing well otherwise. I lost 5 and a half pounds over the last two weeks, thanks to eating better and taking walks, so I'm happy about that. I hope I can continue on with it.

Is there truly no way you can move back to NYC where the sane people live? Because OMIGOD, it's not fair that you are trapped in FL with your father's wackiness and bad judgment.

YAY for getting healthier! I took a looong walk today (it was 70 degrees out!), but then I saw a bag of Cadbury mini-eggs and went insane on them. Now I feel queasy from chowing down on too much refined sugar. But they were so good!

I miss Easter candy. Not that I'm allowed to it, but sill, I always loved a good peep.

Moving back to NY just isn't an option, for now or the forseeable future. I'm here for the duration.

I know I don't fully understand your situation, but I really hope you can find a way to move out of that house. :(

Thank you, Rhi. It would be nice to be able to get away from all of this drama. But I can't afford it, so I'm here for a while more.
