There should be one more update here, since, well, there's been some changes in my life. This used to be a very personal blog, so I feel like the update deserves to be at least linked to through here. Well, two updates.
Since the last post I wrote here in 2010, the two dogs have died. There were about 17 and 18 when they died, which is insane for pure Pit Bulls. My other blog, which didn't start as a very personal one, has become gradually more personal, so I wrote about the dogs there. It's a nice little post about what happens when a young couple with two dogs deludes itself into thinking nothing is going to change once kids enter the picture. So there's some guilt on that post, but mostly, it's just a post about my love for the dogs I've lived with for about 14 years. It's called On Dogs and Men, and maybe you'll like it.
The other change is that I have cancer, and it's not a good cancer either. I wrote about that too on the other blog, and there's a good chance I won't write anything else on that blog--just leave it there as the last post. I'm not sure I'm ready to become a Cancer-Dad-Blogger yet, although I've always looked for that smallest niche, you know. The post is called Cancer, because my imagination at the hospital, where I wrote the post, wasn't working overtime. So Cancer it is.
Also, the kids are great--they're 6 and 4 and they're amazing. I'm still married to an incredible woman, and I still consider every living moment on this crazy planet a gift.
Thank you for reading!
