Santa was listening. A day after Christmas, we finally got an offer on our house (on the market since August). The buyer offered full asking price and asked us to pay $1,520 for a home warranty and repairs (if any). That’s it – too good to be true, right? We accepted the offer right away. […]

Everything Comes to a Halt Due to a Medical Emergency

My 13-year-old dog Keela was diagnosed with lymphoma on September 22. I was told she had two weeks to live – and that two weeks would not be very good. She would just get weaker and weaker and die. I had to make a decision on the spot whether to go with prednisone alone to […]
