A Lump In the Mattress

I recently noticed a lump in our mattress.  You know, the one that emerges after two people sleep on each side for a matter of time, creating their own valleys in the plush-top material. This development disappointed me because it was just a year old.  We replaced our super-comfy-but-10-year-old mattress hoping that this new oneContinue reading “A Lump In the Mattress”

Love; Me

“And if I asked you to name all the things that you love, how long would it take for you to name yourself?” I turned 39 yesterday, November 9th.  I have a lot of interest in these transitional years, even a bit more than the decade changes.  This is the last year of my 30s,Continue reading “Love; Me”

Fergus is Reid’s dog.  On a recent roadContinue reading “Fergus the Dog”
