Like the title says, darkness has kind of descended upon me once again. This weekend was not a fun one, despite having the extra day off for the holiday. Saturday was okay, mostly because my son had come home Friday night. He did make the decision to jump from the Marine option to Army ROTC, … Continue reading Darkness
This is a follow up to my post on Extortion from late June. The link to that post is here if you are new to my blog or want a refresher. After a fairly quiet period of time, I heard from her again last week. On my birthday. It was a request for more money, … Continue reading Extortion – Take 2
This is probably going to be a short post, so please excuse the brevity. I had been working on another post, and it might get posted eventually, but I'm not sure at this point.

It may not help that I forgot to take my Zoloft this morning, but I've forgotten that once or twice before and I was … Continue reading Depressed
For reference, I'm sitting down to write this on the morning of Friday, June 8th. I'm not sure if I'll get through it to post today, or if it will be later, but this is when I'm starting this.
