The puppy, our little teddy bear, turned 6 months and will. not. stop. barking.
Our house on the market in the Seattle area, slated to be sold today, is now in delayed escrow. The buyers’ lender went bankrupt.
The elected officials of our nation decided to throw a temper tantrum that has lasted for more than 2 weeks. My kids would be seriously grounded if that happened at home.
