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?!?”

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…⁣

Ball drop.⁣
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. ⁣

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. ⁣

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.
