Hey, guess who’s five months old? This sleepy lil’ gal. She’s actually feeling a smidge under the weather today. She’s got a sniffle. Allergies, maybe, or a cold? I guess dogs can get colds? I dunno, but I’ll have her in to the vet later on today to make sure it’s nothing serious. In the meantime, lookit this sleepy lil’ face! And those fuzzy toebeans!

  3. The New Midlife Crisis – This is a great read. “Sometimes, I think I’m falling apart. Then, I talk to my friends. One spent a whole winter getting a babysitter for her toddler daughter in the middle of the day and then used the time to go to the movies and cry.”
