Week 2 down and still going

We have finally completed week 2.  Nothing much to report except I didn’t realize or prepare for the mental drain.  We all are tired of doing everything for Ethan.  He is getting demanding and not asking so much anymore, so I am working hard with him to ask people kindly to do whatever for him [...]
