So about that book…

Back up a couple of weeks, and you’ll see I snuck in a sentence about a book when I was expounding upon being grateful:

I am grateful to have been asked to write a book on parenting (and now homeschooling) the aforementioned twice-exceptional son while trying to find the funny (yeah, I’ve been sitting on that announcement for some time-more on this at a later date).

I have a hard time talking about it, afraid that if I look it straight in the eye it will either vanish or attack. Better to observe and monitor it through peripheral vision. Or with a towel over my head and a large book with Don’t Panic on the cover. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do, can’t believe I now get to do, and overall am trying to keep myself from freaking the freak out. If you ask me about it in person, kindly note that I will probably turn about a dozen different shades of red. This is normal…mostly.

The book will be out this summer, published by Gifted Homeschoolers Forum press.

Between now and then you can find me writing and actively trying to find the funny. It’s around here somewhere…
