We want you to know that take one of this episode was WAY WAY WAY funnier.

Today we talk about being busy, needing to talk to tweens about drug and alcohol use– or, hopefully, nonuse– and 7 things you should do to have a better relationship.  We also review a book and a show.

Show Notes:  THERE ARE NO SHOW NOTES.

I know!  It was my podcast resolution to give better show notes, and I FORGOT THEM ALTOGETHER.  Normally, this would be no big deal, and I would just throw them together.  But!  We actually forgot that this whole episode was in the can, and we recorded it like 20 days ago, so I HAVE NO CLUE what we even talked about.

ENJOY.
