Writing Challenge Day 3

Pete Farmer slowly began to stir from his deep sleep.  He could feel the cold hard concrete beneath the weight of his body.  His head throbbed.  Given the amount of alcohol he had consumed the previous night it was safe to assume that this was his punishment.  It didn’t take long before he realized that this was the worst hangover he had ever experienced in his life, even since college.  It felt like he’d been clubbed over the head and thrown down a flight of stairs.

I will post my updates here and hopefully, when all is said and done I will have begun to resharpen a skill which has long gone dull...

Without further ado...

I've decided to "reboot" my parenting blog.  With so many changes happening in my life over the past couple of years some of the posts just don't feel right any more and my perspectives on some of the subjects I previously wrote about have vastly changed.  That being the case I felt it was time to polish it off and start over.


On Being Daddy: What did you call me?: Dad... Daddy... Dada... I've been all of those over the last few years since becoming a parent. Now that I find myself in the position...
