DIY: Home improvement project spruces up room belonging to beloved pet

For the better part of 15 years, I owned a cat, or rather she owned me. She also owned a room in my house, and this is the story of how I renovated it after she passed. Finley was a rescue, an abandoned kitty when I took her in, early in 2001 in Lewisville, Texas. ...

These 12 songs would be on my all-time best, definitive, ultimate CD

I haven’t been able to run this week because of some heel pain, so I decided to revisit a blog project that I’ve wanted to do for a long time: ranking my favorite songs of all time. I figured I’d start with my top 10 and then expand from there. It’s totally self-indulgent, but I’ve ...
