This week in #dadlife – a flashback to Halloween, remainders from the holiday season, crafting herpes, and my imaginary free time.
But first – a little personal business.
For the last few months, I’ve tried to find full-time writing and editing work.
To say that I’ve been unsuccessful is a lie because the word “success” is involved.
I’m far, far away from the word success but incredibly close to the “succ” part.
So I figured “Why not use this platform to find work?!?”

If you or your company is on the hunt for a person with writing, editing, marketing, and social media expertise – who also happens to have fantastic handwriting – please reach out via email.

The extended Christmas break from school is the reason for my hatred of New Year’s Day.
As a kid, I hated New Year’s Day. The next day ALWAYS meant back to school. It sucked.
You’re off an entire week, doing nothing but playing with toys, watching TV, and never taking off your pajamas, and then it’s…
A day of college football games and ham.
Back to math class.
And I never, EVER remember January 1st being a nice, sunny day. Every year it’s gloomy and cold. It’s kinda like the house a day after a house party.
I still hate New Year’s Day.

Never has a nickname been so true.
I’ve since been alerted to the fact that the person who should be credited is the hilarious Demetri Martin.

I felt so silly when I realized my blunder.

This still boggles my mind.
It’s on an app, but I can text my son’s teacher at any point during the day to ask a question.
I never have any questions, but it’s still nice to know the option is available.

Remember Arsenio Hall’s “Things That Make You Go Hmmm…”?
OK, cool, then you’re old like me.
Parenting Note #699
When your kid asks “Did you work on my LEGO set today?” and you say, “No, because I have work to do” and he responds, “Are you building LEGOs isn’t work?!?” and you want to toss all his toys into a fire pit.
