August is a crazy busy month of the year for me.

Last Saturday, I didn’t send a tip of the week.  This Saturday, I am too tired to spend much time typing.

A writer I follow once sent out a reminder that I have never forgotten.  I read this from time to time.  You may need this reminder, too.

“Sadly my favorite activity — spending time with my kids — is now denied me. Alex and Stephen are 24 and 21, busy with their own lives, and too old to hang out with mom and dad; Stephen is away at school in Pittsburgh. When they were young and the kids wanted to be with us was the happiest time of my life. If you are a parent, spend time with your kids now while they still want you. This is the most important piece of advice I can give you.”

– Bob Bly

He’s right.  We all know he is.  Do what he says.  Turn the distractions off for a bit.

Spend some time with your kids.


Have a Happy Sunday, everyone.

Every Saturday, I send out a tip of the week.  I also include announcements, upcoming classes, and so on.  If you would like to hear from me every weekend, sign up for my weekly updates here:
