Dog plus Yoga = Doga
Doga means that I do downward dog, and suddenly I have a dog squirming underneath me trying to lick my face.

I Made A Deal With the Husband
I've been meaning to get back on here and get back on track for a while. Like, a long while. Somewhere in the last few years, things just started slowly sliding in a off direction and they've been doing it so slowly that I barely noticed exactly... Read more
