    I love my son.  Love, love, love him.  From the moment he was born, he was perfection and has never given me any trouble.  He never caused problems or gave me anything to worry about.  He has always been a good kid and I feel very fortunate.

    I have had a very long and trying week.  Between the agony of my toothache, and the joy of my son starting high school, it’s been a little stressful.  I am looking forward to the weekend.  Not so much because it is a few days off, but because I am going to go to temple for Shabbat.... read on
