Home after five days in Seattle visiting the parents. Five days of being away from this cesspool of problems, five days of enjoying myself, five days of sharing my parenting duties with someone who really shares them (my bf, Khat), five days of being cocooned in a wonderful city surrounded by people who love me and wanted nothing more than to help in any way they could.
And now I’m home and needing to deal with the problems and issues again. Now I’m home and nothing has changed except that maybe I’m a little more distant than I was, a little less interested in continuing on in this vein. Now I’m home and something needs to be done.
