I got nothing today. My brother is in ill health (nearly died on Sunday) due to poor life decisions and I’m struggling with how I feel about that [EDIT: I re-read that and it comes off pretty dark. I obviously don’t want him to die and want him to live a long and fruitful life full of health and happiness. However, I’ve mostly divested myself from any relationship we still have because of how he’s approached his life – not wanting to go down with the drowning – type of thing. Not getting into that here, today]. We’re not especially close and if we weren’t family, I wouldn’t have anything to do with him. Holly is out of town for work, our schedules have been “off” so we missed out on nooky the days prior to her departure much to my chagrine. My first post-vasectomy “sample” came back “still swimmers” so that’s a little like a wet blanket on our sex life too as neither of us likes condoms and definitely takes some of the wind out of our sails in that department. Finally, the weather is looking like it may be turning cold, days are short, just feeling sort of “blah” the last week. Exercise/lifting seems to be one of the few things keeping my mood up. In fact, had a blast on Sunday playing football with some friends (in the rain), which I haven’t played for fun in maybe a decade.
Am reading the book Fatherneed: Why Father Care is as Essential as Mother Care for Your Child
right now, which describes the need for the differing parenting style of dads in addition to the one mom provides. Thought this blog post on Parenting and Fathers (which I just found and has a lot of paleo and similar other ideas to Red Pill stuff) was solid plus had a Calvin and Hobbes strip which always is +100 points in my book.
