Yes, hate is a strong word. And, no, I donâ€™t really mean it. Itâ€™s sort of like when youâ€™re young and you have your first crush, and you think this must be love. Then the guy turns out to be a big jerk so you decide to hate him even though you love him, and […]
I’ve been concerned lately about respecting the privacy of my kids. I don’t mean privacy as in knowing what’s in their rooms or checking my daughter’s text message history. I’ve got no problem with that. What I mean is whether their lives are open books to the world, i.e., blog fodder. See, almost daily, something […]
It’s almost 3 a.m. and storming like crazy outside, and quite likely because I didn’t take a magic sleep pill before it got too late (because I didn’t want to fall asleep before the end of the book), I can’t sleep.
