Raliegh thinks that Margot is having an affair! I don't know who it could possibly be. I was so hurt when he told me this that I punched through the glass on the roof.
We're gonna find the guy and get him! Current Mood: angry

|Dad's moving back in...
Dad called about needing a place to stay so we moved his things into my room. After a while his medication set in and he fell asleep. I tried to talk Chaz into letting him stay, but he didn't want to be in the same house as dad. Chaz told him off and when dad got up he collapsed and had a seizure. We called Dr. McLure in and he said that Dad's gonna be stable. He got paged and had to leave. He said that the best we can do is hope that Dad's a fighter. As long as he's staying with us I'm happy. I hate how angry Chaz gets. I know all that he and his boys have been through and sometimes he forgets that he's my brother, and i love him. Current Mood: worried
Eli told Margot about the letter I wrote to him. I can't believe he can repeat something like that. Eli's been acting strange lately. He's on mescalin. When I visited him he barely knew what was going on, hearing things that weren't there, etc. He doesn't understand that Margot and I aren't actually blood relatives. Current Mood: distressed
We visited Grandma Helen's grave today. Dad kept asking questions about Mr. Sherman today, I wonder what that is about. A pack of cigarettes fell out of Margot's pocket. I think she's smoking. I hate it when dad brings up my last game. It just hurt so much to see Margot sitting up in the stands with Raliegh. I gave up that day as soon as I threw my racket away. Dad kinda disappeared after that.

Dad is home! It's great to see him! He really didn't look so sick at all. He wants to set everything right within his last six weeks. He wants to take us out to see Grandma Helen. We haven't gone out there since i was 6. Chaz seemed really upset about something dad said about Rachel. I missed dad so much. I hope he doesn't notice his hamelina is missing. Current Mood: excited
This morning I woke up at dawn. It just seems best that birds aren't kept in cages. I fed Mordecai three sardines and set him free. Current Mood: pensive

|Finally Home Again
It was amazing to see Margot again. As usual, she was late. The moment she stepped off the bus it seemed that everything was silent and moving so slowly. Just seeing her puts such a smile on my face. That night, I found myself living under the same roof as my entire family for the first time in 17 years. Current Mood: rejuvenated

|Oh, dear God...
It turns out my father has stomach cancer. he only has 6 weeks to live. I'm so worried about him. I can't believe anything like this could happen. Just the thought of this brings up the memories of all the moments we had when I was growing up. Each weekend he and I would go on an outing, sometimes to the races, sometimes watching the dog fights. And now, all that will be gone. I have to go home and visit him. I haven't seen him since I retired, but I couldn't bring myself to see him, knowing how he takes disappointment and all...
I'm going to come home as soon as possible. I'm disembarking at Halifax, and transfering to a third class stateroom aboard the Queen Helena. That should eventually take me to the eastern seaboard. I asked Margot to meet me at the pier by means of the Green Line Bus.
She's going to be late.
My luggage wont get here for another 11 days... :/ Current Mood: worried

|So this is life after retirement.
For the past year, I've been traveling alone on an ocean liner called, "Le Cote Divoire" and have seen both poles, five oceans, the amazon, and the nile. I'm in the middle of the ocean. I haven't left my room in 4 days. I haven't been more lonely in my life, and I think I'm in love with Margot.
From what I hear, my brother, Chaz has been overly protective of his kids since the death of his wife.
Also, my mother's buisness partner, Mr. Sherman asked her to marry her. It's strange... since the seperation, she's had many suiters but she never even considered any one of them until Mr. Sherman. She's an Archeologist now.
This is akward. Word is that he moved back in with her Current Mood: lonely
