And I'm pretty sure I'm not Father of the Year, either.
I want to be careful not to be too hard on Vix in this. I told this story from my point of view, and probably left things out.
Suffice it to say she and I both need to improve our communication and, yes, I need to adjust my expectations.
I've been doing a lot of that kind of adjusting recently, and it's getting awfully chilly around here.
