Well, that was interesting.

And by interesting, I mean "entertaining", "pathetic", "slightly embarrassing", and "weird".

I wish I weren't so dull. Or lonely, while I'm at it. I suppose one predetermines the other.

kiss on the head

It's been one hell of a summer.

New house, new neighbourhood, new responsibilities. I always was the 'main' parent, as it were, but now that I officially am, it's a whole new game. I think we're going to be fine. I hope we are, at least.

It would be different if Chrissie weren't always at the periphery. She should be -- and I know that -- but part of me wishes that it were just me and Maria and that we were free of her. I'm a horrible person for even thinking it, but I can't not.

I'm glad Maria's gotten on so well with Sarah Jane and Luke. They're definitely odd ducks, but they seem to be good people, and I can certainly tell that they're both crazy about her. She needs that. I can only do so much, be so much. All these books keep telling me that the best thing I can do is simply be there for her, but it never feels like enough.

Six months on my own, raising a kid. Still lonely as hell, but we're managing. I'm managing.

She's an odd duck, that Sarah Jane Smith.

Not so odd that I don't trust her, because she checks out, and she seems to be genuinely good with the kids.

Still, I can't figure her out, and it bothers me. A lot.

Not going to ramble about the divorce, not going to ramble about the divorce, going to be good, going to stay focused on what matters, not things like alimony cheques and 'Ivaaaaan' and not having gotten laid in nearly eighteen months. No. This is Dad's Journal, meant for Dad Things. Not, oh, Dad's Life.

What life?

I've got Maria, at least. Generally, I win. It's just the specifics that irritate.

Like not being able to figure out Sarah Jane bloody Smith...
