The screaming began right around midnight.
â€œMOMMMMEEEEEEE!!!â€ It continued to gain in hysteria, growing louder and louder until a trembling child was pooled in heap upon the newly displaced dog bed.
(The dog has recently demonstrated a serious phobia of smoke alarms. Iâ€™ve recently decided to start cooking in a healthier lifestyle adoption. Kid and dog were likely going for a quid pro quo kinda thing.) Continue reading
First off, I would like to state this is a misnomer. There is one giant mud pit at the end â€“ which, while fun, does not make for the dirty girl run I was expecting.
Really it was more of a Dusty Trusty. Continue reading
The odds are good that in just a few short weeks youâ€™ll stumble upon a news headline shouting, â€œFamily Receives Million Dollar Water Bill.â€ And it wonâ€™t be one of those billing error issues â€“ it will be the result of a washing machine running non-stop for 30+ days.

Youâ€™ve heard of the Muppets right? No, not MY muppets â€“ their puppety namesakes.
After more than a decade spent largely out of the spotlight, mostly doing whatever felt puppets do when no one is watching, Miss Piggy, Kermit the Frog, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, and the rest of the Muppet repertory company are poised to return to the big screen on Nov. 23 in Disneyâ€™s splashy, star-studded musical comedyÂ The Muppets.
