October 31, 1999

It's Sunday night.

My dad and his wife are in the front seat. Me and my two sisters are in the back seat. I sit in the middle because both sisters get car sick and need to sit by the windows.

The road is dark, long, and full of foreboding.

It's like this every Sunday night.

We drive home from his country house upstate. Back into the city.

Sad because it's Sunday and that means school tomorrow.

Anxious because we'll be going back to my mother's apartment and she'll be filled with hate, anger, and accusations toward my father.

Until next time. . .
