Life on a lake in Northern Minnesota is good! My four kids and I recently moved to Detroit Lakes. We are a fun crew, that rarely does anything half-way.
Except housework. I really hate housework. But we do it anyway, because it must be done.
I also put a great deal of investment into my four kids. My 14 year old is "typical," talented, and bright. My 13 year old is a TBI survivor, funny, and creative. My 11 year old is autistic, smart, and obsessed with the Titanic. My 8 year old is adopted, has a history of trauma, and is the most talented athlete I know.
So that's what I'm doing with my life. Working in a job I find extremely fulfilling, and making sure my kids have interesting topics to discuss with their therapists some day.
