The other night was one of those rare evenings where Derek and I each found ourselves with a few free moments that actually coincided with one another. We decided to celebrate this blessed event, like most couples do, by sitting on the couch and staring silently at the TV. Unfortunately, my motor skills were not

Can’t Argue With That – Exercising Releases Endorsements

So Derek and I have 4 cats. (For those of you new to my blog, Derek is the identity-protected alias of my boyfriend.) 2 of our cats came to us about a year ago, as kittens. They had been strays, brought into the animal hospital where I worked. A wonderful woman, who dedicates a LOT
