I've never let myself feel like the victim where my dad was concerned, I guess because I needed to think there was something somewhere somehow strong and good and right in my life, and he was the only thing I could pinpoint, or he was the closest thing I had to that I guess. Dave and I were talking tonight about things between my Dad and I growing up, a timeline I guess, and he came right out and said it without a thought. Fuck.

Sorted through the christmas stuff last night so that I could give Dan all of his grandma's ornaments. I expected it to be a tough thing, giving away half of everything, the baubles that have decorated my home every Christmas for the last 10 years, but really, it was so nice to declutter, to purge, to simplify. I feel good about it. I started out with 2 huge boxes, and they turned into 3 - one for him, one for me, and 1 (the largest) for the garbage can.
