Friday Feelz

G posted on Facebook this meme today, and I think it summarizes my week nicely:  Last night, I had a frustrating conversation with my brother.  I needed someone to talk to – and in the situation, this was the best person…..or so I thought.  Pretty much I needed to vent – and I got a…

Motivational Monday

Over the weekend, I had a talk with our foster son that I think is applicable for a post. As one would expect given all he has been through (fuck, he’s a foster kid – you don’t even need to know the details to expect he has), he is struggling. And while he is fighting…
