I was going to post something from my now sage vantage point in the temporal stream, but I'm a bit exhausted. Pulled an almost all-nighter last night getting RADZ to press (which included a complete re-layout), and after a lot of running around today with classic Van Halen blasting from the car, I took the kids to Pegasus for my birthday dinner. When we got home, Tyler put his foot in it, big time. I won't go into detail, but we're talking lying, dissociative behavior, and complete lockdown of privileges (including removal of computer from bedroom) until further notice. He's spending the night at my brother's, as is the result of these confrontations.
Counseling tomorrow - which is damn fortunate.
I don't like to go into too much detail with this stuff for obvious reasons. Suffice to say I'm not feeling as great about parenting now as I was just this morning.
A big thank you to all my wonderful friends and family who sent such amazing birthday wishes! With the aforementioned exception, it was a pretty good day.
