Matt bought a wobby stool. Intentionally. Sometimes I think that my husband just hates being comfortable, but he says that it’s supposed to ease pressure on your joints and force you to make micro-adjustments while perching on it that help (kinda) build muscle strength over time.

Since we’ve been Gwen’s humans, every now and again, she pees on our bed. It is insanely frustrating, even more so when, for whatever reason, she… Continue reading To Gwen, or Not to Gwen

If you’re uncomfortable with this topic, please feel free to skip this post.
