Extracts from this document...


Saturday, April 16, 2000 09:05 P.M. GMT Dear Diary, Apa's drinking has gotten out of control. Last night, I walked home from the library after a study session at Amanda's for final exams. I call for Uhmma when I walk inside the house. Instead, Apa was standing in the middle of the living with a hand on his hip, when he should be at his only remaining gardening job.
