When our cat was alive, she used to sleep in bed with us at night. I could count on her to nudge me in the middle of the night if I was snoring, crawl up next to me when she was having a bad dream and gently paw at me when she wanted me to wake up and feed her.…Continue

I rarely talk about my cat on this blog, but I have one and I absolutely love her. She has been with our family for about 14 years and she is super sweet, especially around our son. When he was a baby, she would rub up against his toes until he giggled. Today, they are good buddies and she always comes into his room to help me wake him up for school.…Continue

but I am curious;
can I learn a new trick?
The Rubik’s Cube

I am a precocious forty-something.
The Rubik's Cube, that…Continue

My kids are always excited when a new toy shows up on our doorstep. Especially when they see it advertised on television, and they can say, "hey, I've tried that!"
When Zoomer's best friend Shadow showed up, my kids were all too…

He's body-slammed himself through a glass door, eaten my kitchen chairs, and taken a giant dump right in the middle of a dinner party. And he absolutely loses his mind if a strange man is on our…
