Sometimes Life Lessons Are Not Writing Lessons

Spent most of tonight trying to get Son Number Two to do his schoolwork. He complained about not feeling good and being tired and the usual round of excuses for not working. I scolded him, punished him, cracked a few jokes at his expense and then felt like a real heel when he ran to the bathroom and threw up. Hope he feels better tomorrow.

Don't beat yourself up over it. We all do things like that occasionally. A life lesson - yes - but one day you'll use it in your writing. Betcha!

He is feeling much better and finished his school work early. That's always a good thing because then he can enjoy the rest of the day.
