I am depressed. It hasn’t been this bad since second semester of my freshman year of college. I haven’t showered in four days, haven’t changed clothes in three. I stay up late into the night and sleep or mindlessly play video games or watch videos all day. I avoid doing things I know I like … Read more Depression
They are finally at school. You’ll remember from our last discussion that Snowmageddon in the greater Seattle area caused our boys to miss almost two weeks of school. In general, schools were open on the Wednesday, but with a late start, so out-of-district transportation was canceled and my boys were stranded at home.

I should just go back to bed until it’s tomorrow. Trouble with that is I’m not expecting tomorrow to be any better. Oh, right, and I have kids home to take care of. You see, it snowed on Sunday in the Seattle area. We’re not used to that and we tend to freak out a … Read more But Not for You

A little history first: Over the past six years, I’ve had six wonderful, contemporary friends stricken with cancer. … Read more Cancer Sucks
On Sunday, Gino is going to live somewhere else. That feels really weird, but it’s absolutely what needs to happen. Let me exlain… In May 2017, I heard through a friend of a friend posting for another friend in a Facebook group that there was a dog being rehomed because his family was in a … Read more Gino’s New Home
I’ve been working on the same book for about 15 years. The same three books, actually. The sidekick in the original book kept trying to take over the story, so I told her she could have her own book after so she would pipe down. Then I wrote another book during National Novel Writing Month … Read more Shark Must Park!
I started this new blog, as opposed to returning to Life with the Quirky Boys, as a way to chronicle my journey through the legal process of getting Private a specialized school placement through the school district. As usual, I busied myself with the technical and design details of the website rather than writing posts. … Read more Partnership to Success
