Cait likes to text me stuff that cracks her up. Recently, she’s been on a lot of”Aunt babysitting duty” so I wasn’t surprised to get this one.
She’s great with little kids. Just the right amount of fun and sass and responsibility. And she’s totally going to be this mom with her kids. As I still am with her. After posting something humorous but to the point on her instagram, she found me about as funny as this little girl finds her mom. :)
*Looks like the video has been removed. Basically, the mom keeps scaring her daughter while she’s waiting for the box to pop. The daughter is NOT happy with the mom doing this […]
Having lived with several seriously smart and capable dogs in my life, I’m not surprised to see something like this. I think we’ve only just begun scratching the surface of what dogs are capable of.
It’s not often that you get to introduce someone to a food they’ve never tasted before. The last time I had someone surprise me with a new taste was when my best friend, Ceres (very Greek and the queen of foods you’ve never tried before), gave me an Asian Pear.

I don’t seek it out, but if it comes looking for me, I’ve tried to equip myself to the best of my ability to meet it. Hence my training as an EMT, my training in psychology, and my involvement with dog training and rescue. I figure that pretty much covers most of the bases.
As life often has a tendency to bunch up, I’m in a period where many people I know are being faced with emotionally wrenching decisions. The phone has been busy…
Two calls last week were from opposite sides of the same coin of a very tough decision.
One was from a woman […]
Since 2013, there have been nearly 300 school shootings in America — an average of about one a week.
Had enough? I have. I am so bleepin tired of empty presidential platitudes and all those well-meaning prayers that have never brought back a dead kid or prevented more attacks. Ask any parent who’s lost a child, or any child who’s lost a sibling to gun violence what they think about that. Sadly, I am close to people in both those categories.
There is no sane reason on the planet why ANYONE should be allowed to own ASSAULT rifles, or be able to purchase a gun without a background check. There are […]
