I swear to God I can smell that with my eyes, that is not right, that is how bad your cooking smells. Namaste! Just a short post because the retching is interrupting my typing. We were up and down all last night with Mali feeling a lot of pain from surgery and needing comforting. Somewhere around 2:00am Gracie decided to … Continue reading “No Emoji is strong enough!”

So, you’ve met Bo, but I thought I would take the opportunity to introduce you to the rest of our crew. As the weeks go by I’ll dig into the wayback … Continue reading “Introductions”
