Who is the Duke Of Chaos?

Who is the Duke Of Chaos?

Hello? Heelllloooooo?

Huh? What? Oh, hi. Didn’t see you there.

Who am I?  I am the Duke of Chaos!


Who is the Duke of Chaos? Why it’s me! I’m the Duke of Chaos. Egocentric? Yes.  Accurate?  Absolutely!

So the question is who is this guy that calls himself a Duke?

Life is like a box of chocolates? Well, not so much.

Life, at least my life and most of the people I know, Wis more like a cup of granola and yoghut…   

mixed in a blender…   

with the top left off…

One of the more useless comments I’ve had more times than I count, by people close enough to me to be able to know the truth of life, is that even television sitcom’s and dramas are more believable than the events that happens daily in my life.

See, I married the farmer’s daughter and we weren’t supposed to be able to have kids.  Doctors said so.  That was five children ago.  Then the fairytale went sideways and Murphy took a run at us.  We’re still dancing with the trickster Murphy, but I know the dance now and we’re going to win this.

To recap, amazing unique challenging children, ongoing major home renovations, heartless and shocking job losses, unforseen and uncontrolable union lockouts, medical challeges and disasters, the usual vehicle catastrophies, but through it all, life goes on.  Chaos is the norm here in Castle Chaos, and over it all, the Duke and Duchess of Chaos.  We’ve made it through everything, and the ride’s not over yet.  If you can relate then you might want to stick around


Have you ever rolled your eyes to the heavens, asking a non-responsive power just how much longer this madness will last?  Well, you’re not alone.  There are many of us out here, all just playing the game for all it’s worth.  If other’s can learn or even gain some inspiration or hope from our struggles, then our task is complete.

There are many sources of help, and just as many avenues to seek that help.  From out of control kids that don’t fit the box, to finances which are always stretched too thin, to even just how to communicate better with your partner in this game called life, I have faced it all. With the youngest child (so far) being only a few months old at the time I’m witing this, the odds are good that I’ll face it again.  So maybe if I can work some of my experience into a semblance of cohesion, then you won’t have to suffer through the painful lessons that I still carry the scars from.



(Or, what do I hope to accomplish while I have your attention here?)

I grew up without much of a father (working), then we moved when I was supposed to be finding myself as a young adult (17 yrs old), and then my father died.  Ask any therapist, this is a rough cycle to endure adn come out unscathed, or even grounded.  I have fought hard to gain the footing I have, and if even one person can find what I have written, learn from my experiences, or even just gain enough hope to seek out help, then it will have been worth it.

Therefore, having said all that, if you ever need a hand or have ay questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out, I promise to read every comment and will help as I can.

All the best,

Duke Of Chaos
