I'm going to say it, and I wonder who will hate me for it and then not finish reading this. ALL LIVES MATTER! I say it, but I don't mean in it as part of any political movement. I mean it as a statement of fact. All lives matter. BLM is a good cause but,… Continue reading [___________] Lives Matter!
Well, it seems to me multiple changes are coming my way.

You know what? I was going to write this long blog about the safety of reopening schools and how I plan to structure and deal with my 1st grader with behavior issues. I have been working on that post since about 7 AM. Screw it. Instead, its not even 10:30 AM, I've made breakfast, drank… Continue reading I May Drown…
