Bunnicide: A Tale of Murder and Mayhem

Kaia and I were enjoying a nice, long walk last night. We have a ton of bunnies in our neighborhood, and we both discovered that she loves chasing after them. Fortunately, she’s on a leash and can’t actually catch them. And yes, I call them bunnies, not rabbits. Deal with it. Or you’ll be next. (That’s […]

Rescue Mission: De-Briefing

This weekend’s rescue mission went so much better than I had expected! Granted, Friday night was a bit of a pain. Rosie and I left St. Louis around 6:15, and didn’t get in to Arkansas until midnight.

She probably wishes we were more like this |                                              |. Anyway, do you SEE that adorable puppy??? I think I ovulated when I saw that picture. She said that it […]


It was Friday, August 2, 2002. It had been a crappy day, because my boss had informed me that she was not going to be paying me for maternity leave after all. She waited until FIVE DAYS before my due date to tell me this. I was just glad that it was Friday, and I […]
