Job interview 

Well, having a parent that knows and understands corporate America was benefits. The company 26 was applying for is, if his experience is any indication, violating about half a dozen federal laws related to hiring. I guided him through what to say and who to speak with and…he has an interview today at 9 am. … More Job interview 

Here’s the Latest

Well, the move went well.  26 is in his new digs with his fraternity brother/landlord.  The job thing is not going so smooth and he is already doubting himself and hinting at “running” again.  I’ve told him there is nowhere to run.  Grow up and find a job. Basically, even though his fraternity brother is … More Here’s the Latest

The Power of Love

I should have known when I wrote and read the to 26, “I will not speak to you when you are using in the future” last summer at the family counseling weekend I would struggle when that time came.  Well, as we feared, it came.  He was further down the relapse path than we thought. … More The Power of Love

I am currently sitting in the neighbor’s house dog sitting.  We started this lovely practice of trading dog sitting when ours were still with us.  While I enjoy having the interaction with their dog…it is not the same.  Not to mention, he is an aging French Bulldog and has the energy of an octogenarian. I … More The ED Issue
