The other day I realized it was nearly Thanksgiving. No, not because Walmart suddenly changed their Halloween decor to Christmas. (Side note: Is Thanksgiving the forgotten holiday or what? I mean, seriously, we go from haunted houses to snowmen with no thought to the pilgrims. I’d be sad, but the truth is, I like the [...]

I hope all of you have a great Halloween. This is one of my favorite holidays and I usually decorate inside and out. Sadly, as the parent of a teenager, I no longer have pictures of cute kids in pirate costumes, ready to go out trick or treating. Instead I get a surly teenager who [...]

If you read the blog yesterday, you know that I cheerily said something about my floor always being clean, thanks to my dogs.

And this dog:
I figured they could clean it up (hey, [...]

Pick up your shoes!
