*insert random boring text here*  What has been happening?  Well, let’s sum up the past six months in one paragraph or less.

My son starts high school and is doing well when my daughters best friend shoots himself in the head just after school starts.  She plummets into a depression as I start a new job that doesn’t pay me until November.  I find my biological father and my daughter downs a bottle of Tylenol.  At this point my son starts skipping school and doing drugs.  His grades drop 30 points.  Daughter gets out of hospital, thinks everything is all better and Christmas comes.  New Years goes, back to school, kids balanced?  Until son gets kicked out of group home because of belligerence, drug use and abuse.  Son comes home for a week to try to make things work, breaks down intentionally because he wants to live on his own at 14.  Moves to another group home, stays out all weekend then rushed to hospital with methamphetamine, amphetamines, cannabis and MDMA in his system.

But ya know, it doesn’t all seem so bad when I write it all out.  However listening to Elbow – The Fix is definitely helping.
